Run with the Hunted architect songs founded around the heaviness and technicality of bands like Indecision and Turmoil intermixed with strong noisy flourishes akin to Botch or Catharsis. The end result is anything but the typical aping of either niched genre - it's a powerful combination of both without the shortcomings of either and a unique style all it's own.
Lyrically, the band explores political and personal subject matter in equal parts but with the same introspective angle and emotional vulnerability the band has become known for. Run with the Hunted is defining what being a hardcore band in 2010 means for themselves. After two ep's, Find Your Way Out on Rebuild Records (2007) and Destroy All Calendars on Glory Kid Records (2009) and three years of touring Run with the Hunted has finally found it's home with Panic Records and is preparing to release their debut LP to be released this Fall.
Cold Hands is courageous in its resolve to break new ground. It executes an array of musical ideas so seamlessly that moments of calm are all the more compelling for what might follow. “When the bones have cracked and the flesh and fat have all been torn away, know I’m on my way,” sings Renton in “Hounds of Belgravia.” That kind of visceral storytelling is the record’s backbone, complemented with a bevy of instrumental flourishes, including a guest violin appearance from Vancouver musician Tegan Ceschi-Smith on “Temptation and the Journey South”, “I Follow Stars, Not Dreams II” and the albums final song “Hounds of Belgravia”.
“Fire Next Time is a folk band, playing catchy songs with poetic lyrics that are anchored by acoustic guitar and splashes of banjo. Live, fans love to sing along with lead singer James Renton’s passionate verses while the band dresses with style and the appropriate number of members have hipster friendly beards.” - Punksite
“Fire Next Time is continuing to represent Edmonton’s punk contingent at home and further afield. The band, which is now signed to Stomp Records out of Montréal, is gearing up for a tour and an appearance at Quebec punk-rock showcase Le Pouzza Fest after the release of Cold Hands.” - Vue Weekly.
For fans of Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! A Day to Remember, Sum 41 Neck Deep, Such Gold, Knuckle Puck, Seaway, Set Your Goals.
Started in 2015 Point Place is an assortment of Edmonton musicians from prominent metal/ hardcore bands. True North Pop Punk with driving verses and catchy choruses with heavier elements of Easycore and Hardcore mixed in.
