We at Mind Equals Blown are delighted to exclusively bring you the music video for The Runaround’s new single “Annie Can’t Wear Heels To Prom.”
The track is taken from the band’s upcoming debut full length Without All The Weight, available May 28. The album was produced, mixed and mastered by Gary Cioffi Jr. (Transit/Misser/Sleep City) and engineered by John Dello Lacono at Maximum Sound Studios.
With “Annie Can’t Wear Heels To Prom” and, by extension the band’s entire debut effort, The Runaround is sure to garner much attention and turn many heads as the group taunts a familiar blend of angst-driven rock with uncommon youthful twists that manifest themselves through atypical, complex instrumentation and melodies that are loaded with hooks, balancing visceral energy with mature composition.
So without further ado, please enjoy the video for “Annie Can’t Wear Heels To Prom,” and read a description from the band below.
“Annie, the 4th track off the record starts with a clean delayed guitar intro leading to an explosion of distorted guitars and loud boomy drums, to calmed verses with confident vocals as the drums build like stepping stones to a mountain sized chorus with angsty vocals pouring out references to the constant ongoing hate and love that everybody goes through no matter what they do in life. But reassuring that you’re doing okay. For us playing in a band there’s always going to be people that support you and don’t support you. So you just do your thing and not care what people say or think. We chose this song as the first single because we feel it grabs you emotionally and has a serious “we’re here to stay” message. This song was written right after we recorded our first EP. We live really close to the Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos and it was prom season around one of the nights we were there. Mike overheard a conversation where someone said “Haha, Annie Cant Wear Heels To Prom” and turned to see a really short guy standing next to a really tall girl. It’s fitting, and a bit comical.”
