WITTERQUICK, one of the UK’s hottest new bands, are back with pop-rock anthem ‘RUN’.
‘RUN’ (self-release) was the song that convinced the band to get back in the studio after a six month break and was recorded in Cardiff with Romesh Dodangoda (Bring Me The Horizon, Lower Than Atlantis). This single is about “sticking to your guns despite the odds, holding on to your beliefs, and giving critics the finger,” says vocalist Will Alford.
Exploding onto the scene in 2016 supporting Nothing But Thieves on a sold out tour, WITTERQUICK have released two EPs, sold out numerous shows in the UK, and received recognition across major media and streaming platforms.
Their sound combines the intensity of punk-rock with a razor sharp pop sensibility and the feel of 70’s and 80’s stadium greats. Bassist Ollie Chanter says of the band's approach, “We’re not trying to be anyone else, we don’t want to be like anyone else, if you aren’t doing your own thing what’s the point?”
The release of ‘RUN’ is accompanied by a UK tour (details below
