Good news coming in threes
Some of you may have noticed that Running Club have been rather quiet this year. Thank you for noticing. There were two reasons for this, firstly we lost another drummer (three apparently is a pattern), and secondly we couldn’t find a drum machine capable of interpreting Tim’s air drumming. Shame.
Fortunately however, throughout the resulting summer of parties and onesies, Tom continued to toil away on the project some began to believe might never see the light of day, or even worse turned out to be a hoax. I am of course talking about the much anticipated debut long player from ‘Britain’s most entertaining Running Club’.
Surely not, I hear you gasp in the front row. The album we began work on way back in 2011, when Osama was still on the run, and Manchester City were just noisy neighbours? Yes, that very same album.
How, I hear the desperate cries from the back, can we possibly get our hands on this? Well, it’s quite simple, make your way to our website on January 1st, and you will be offered links to several reputable online dealers to stream, download or playlist to your heart’s content.
But! I hear the drunken revellers at the bar chip in, you said good news comes in three, what could possibly top that? Well how about this. To celebrate the release of this seminal classic in the making, we shall play a launch gig somewhere in London on February 1st.
What!? The front row gasp yet again, a Running Club gig? It’s true, it’s all true, so now you must do two very important things. Firstly, put February 1st in your diary, replacing any ‘drinks with old work friends’ you may have there already, and secondly tell everyone you know that you have the perfect finale to your ‘no drinking January’. Assuming you made it that far.
So that’s the first two pieces of news, and what of the third? Well if you come to the gig on February 1st you’ll find out. Until then.
