Middle Class Rut


In 2008 and 2009 Sacramento, CA rockers Middle Class Rut released a total of 5 EPs. In 2010 they broke that tradition by putting out a twelve track full-length entitled No Name No Color. In case you don’t know about MCR, the project is a duo comprised of Zack Lopez (guitar) and Sean Stockham (drums), who both pull vocal duties.

Fast-rising Sacramento-based rock duo Middle Class Rut have released the video for their track, “Busy Bein’ Born,” premiering exclusively via MTV2 today. This is the second single from their widely praised debut album, ‘No Name No Color’ (Bright Antenna/ Independent Label Group) and follows their breakthrough hit “New Low,” which reached #5 at Alternative Rock Radio. Check out the video for “Busy Bein’ Born” HERE.
