UK headline tour dates start next week

“It’s a bracing (re)introduction to a band that match joy and intensity in equal measures.”

Running All The Way Home marks Spielbergs’ first new music since the release of their critically acclaimed debut album This Is Not The End, earlier this year. Released on the back of a packed-out spring UK tour, UK festival appearances and a recent tour support to Foxing – Running All The Way Home is Spielbergs at their triumphant best, condensing the mood of an entire world into a four-minute, adrenaline-shot thrill-ride.

The single also heralds the imminent arrival of the Running All The Way Home EP. The EP houses a handful of new songs (Running All The Way HomeOh No and Fake A Reaction) as well as unreleased material from the album recording sessions, including the expansive and thoughtful electronic soundscapes of The Sum, and the ferocious and guttural This Is Not The End which inspired the title of their debut album and now find its release as part of the EP.

The EP will be released on limited CD, digital and a limited clear-blue vinyl – the vinyl containing three additional bonus tracks, Daisy! It’s The New MeGhost Boy & Setting Sun, all taken from their breakthrough debut EP and all previously unavailable on vinyl.

Lead singer and guitarist Mads Baklien notes on the new single; “Running All The Way Home is a song about regret. You can’t undo what you’ve done. You can apologise to the people you’ve hurt all you want, you can promise to do better in the future, but it will not fix things. You will just have to wait it out and see what happens.”

With a whole host of live shows in the calendar for the remainder of 2019, drummer Christian Lovhaug comments; “We are full of energy after the run of gigs we have had in the first half of 2019. With all the new countries and festivals we’ve visited this summer we are certain that these Autumn dates will be the best yet. We’ve our biggest ever headline tour in the UK, before we return home to Oslo and BLÅ for the same there. With shows to come in the UK, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, France – and our first German tour in December. The second half of 2019 is looking really exciting.”

More about Spielbergs

Beating an intense, heavy path in the mould of Japandroids, Dinosaur Jr., Trail of Dead, Titus Andronicus and No Age, their ability to marry the soaring and uplifting with the dark and gloomy – forever bound by their strong sense of melody – has become something of a calling-card for the band, as have their knock-out live shows.

Spielbergs are:

Stian Brennskag (bass)
