For a while, I have been feeling the need to runaway, find a place of solace. Well, I found a group who feel me and not just because their name is Runaway City but because I can relate to their music.
“At the end of the day, we want people to realize that we are real people,” drummer Chris Burrow says. “Even though we’re up on a stage, we go through struggles just like everyone else. By being authentic, we can truly connect with people. We don’t try to put ourselves above anyone else, and when we talk to our fans after a show, we want that to be apparent.”
When I heard "Fade" I was blown away. I just kept playing and playing and imagined myself perform the song.
“’Fade’ is basically a love song written to someone who is dealing with hardship and who feels like he or she is struggling alone,” Tyler explains. “It’s a musical snapshot of Christ’s love for us and an important reminder that no matter what we’re going through, God’s redeeming love will never fade.”
Influenced by the likes of Switchfoot, Daughtry, Needtobreathe, Safety Suit, U2 and Three Doors Down, Runaway City serves up a timely message with a sense of urgency. Filled with driving guitars, confessional lyrics and impassioned vocal delivery, Runaway City’s debut Armored Heart is creative yet completely accessible. I want you to listen to Fade and not only relate to the song but purchase their album "Armored Heart".
