The Los Angeles-based, indie outfit Run River North (formerly known as Monsters Calling Home), celebrates their debut self-titled album on Nettwerk Records (out 2/25) with a live set and signing at Amoeba!

 

The band is creating a special "Live at Amoeba" art poster as a gift with purchase of the new album starting on Feb. 25. Be one of the first 150 to buy the album and you will receive a ticket that can be redeemed for one of these exclusive posters at the March 6th in-store performance. While they last - not valid for online orders - in-store Amoeba Hollywood purchases only. Limit 2 per person (on posters with purchase).

In 2011, the six-piece released an “accidental” demo, a last-minute promotional piece to sell on tour. With only the unplanned demo, Run River North has seen extraordinary buzz, including a booking on Jimmy Kimmel Live! In 2012, the band recorded and filmed a music video for “Fight To Keep” in their Hondas. Unable to afford a studio space at the time, the sextet switched off playing instruments inside the cramped interiors of their Honda Fit, Accord and CRV. Once uploaded, the video experiment ran an upward viral course to the Honda offices. Under the pretense of thanking the band, Honda invited them to perform in front 600 of their executives. With an “emergency meeting” keeping all but two Honda employees from showing up, the band got the best surprise of their career…it was all a hoax and they were booked as the musical guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

 

Run River North recorded their new album with renowned record producer Phil Ek (Band Of Horses, Fleet Foxes, Built To Spill, The Shins, Sea Wolf, The Walkmen, Father John Misty). About working with Ek, drummer John Chong says, “he thinks outside the box with all his projects. I love how he allows the artist to be really creative with structures, chord choices, metric changes, etc." “A common thread between his records is that you come away with a strong sense of feeling,” continues bandmember Daniel Chae.
