The cooler months may be imminent, but things are only heating up for Melbourne band RUN, returning today with a brand new single Summer featuring Trophy Eyes frontman John Floreani.

An emphatic addition to the ever-growing RUN sonic universe, Summer layers cascading drumwork, emotive melodics and searing vocals, with frontman Lochlan Watt trading vehement moments with John Floreani.


Also accompanied today by a music video directed by Patrick Kearney, Summer is yet another heart-rending gut punch from the Melbourne five-piece.

“It was an honour to have my mate John Floreani clean up the chorus on this song,” shares Watt. “Most of us have become huge fans of Trophy Eyes in recent years, so once we were actually able to pin him down for recording, the collaborative vibes were unreal.”

While RUN’s previous studio collaboration, the 2023 single Everyone’s Cancelled, Everything’s Cancer, introduced a full lineup while spitting out the resentment from prior years to create a fresh slate, the track also saw the band go on to tour around the country with Deafheaven, Hexis, and Earth Caller.

Now completed by fellow veteran musicians guitarists Lewis Noke-Edwards and Arron Parker Richards, drummer Adrian Horsman and bassist/vocalist Benn Gaylor, RUN continues to unveil a new bundle of self-produced, bittersweet crushers that shine bright thanks to the glorious mix of Forrester Savell (Karnivool).

“We have a six track EP coming very soon,” Watt concludes. “It features an intro/title track, four seasonal anthems, and a grand finale. I think it blows the band’s previous material out of the water.”

RUN will return to the stage this May supporting the eclectic and emotionally charged British post-hardcore/metal band Svalbard on their debut Australian tour, with performances lined up in Perth, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.
