Hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah, Run Into The Sun take as much pride in their roots as they do in creating politically and socially-charged hardcore. Today the band shares “Cry” / “Blood,” a dual single focused on judgment, exploitation, and taking action. Recorded with Nic Kartchner at Grotto Audio, it marks the second in a planned series of singles, following “Love” / “Pain” released this past July.

Speaking more in-depth on the messaging behind the release, vocalist Fletcher states:

“Right now in Salt Lake, there’s aggressive gentrification taking place in many communities, especially the Rose Park neighborhood west of Downtown Salt Lake. Landlords and developers are buying up homes and forcing residents out to build new condominiums. Longstanding businesses are disappearing. Prices are skyrocketing. These groups have zero respect for the people and cultures of the neighborhood. Their actions, and our city leaders’ lack of action, are leaving these families with no support and nowhere to go. This is happening everywhere right now. ‘Cry’ / ‘Blood’ shines a light on what’s happening locally and globally. And asks those responsible for this type of behavior, how they can live with what they’re doing.”
