Outrun The Sunlight
Outrun The Sunlight
Outrun the Sunlight is an instrumental metal band from Chicago, IL, who draws diverse influence from modern metal to post-rock, from groups such asThe Contortionist,Cloudkicker,CaspianandRussian Circles. Formed as a studio project in 2011 by guitarists Austin Peters and Cody McCarty, the band released both “Architecture of the Cosmos EP” and “The Return of Inertia” in the same year. Signing with Rogue Records America in 2012, the duo re-released “The Return of Inertia (Vocalist Version)” which included vocalists from around the world, plus two bonus tracks. In 2014, the addition of drummer, Pedro Villegas, and bassist, Connor Grant, brought the band to the stage, and they released their second album “Terrapin," also on Rogue Records. Adrian Perez joined as keyboardist, who was in the band shortly, performing on “Live at Electrical Audio EP” and the “Stars in the Ocean” music video, both recorded in 2015. In 2016, after the departure of Perez, the band parted ways with Rogue Records, and went on to perform on Chicago internet music series, Audiotree, releasing the live album “Outrun the Sunlight on Audiotree Live.” The band returned to that same studio to record their third release, “Red Bird,” which was the first instance that the group performed together on an album, released independently in 2017. In April 2018, the group performed their last show with Grant, and the position was filled by Phil Kalas. The group is set to tour the Southwest US with Boston progressive metal band, Aviations, in June 2018.

Aviations began as a passion project back in 2011 by James Knoerl (Drums) and Sam Harchik (Guitar). Upon meeting vocalist Adam Benjamin mid 2012 through mutual friends online, the group began work on a full length record amidst their studies at Berklee College of Music, tracking nearly everything in James & Sam’s apartment. Their first record titled “A Declaration of Sound” was finally released on Oct. 13th, 2012. 2016 finally saw a complete enough concept to announce “The Light Years” as the official title of the band’s sophomore album, with the first instrumental single “Dizziness Explained” released on Sept. 16th 2016. 2017 saw the return of Adam as their front man with the release of yet another single, “Facewaves” on Nov. 3rd 2017. Along with the song’s release came another release date for their new record, January 19th, 2018; information that their most avid fans had been waiting patiently for. Their new song was also released just in time for the start of a midwest, Canada, and east coast tour with instrumental quintet Arch Echo called “The Tendonitis Tour”, in support of their own debut self titled release. From Nov 3rd to the 18th Aviations brought their unique brand of “cozy metal” to new fans young and old, building up anticipation for their recently announced follow up to 2012’s A Declaration of Sound. The tour proved there is a welcome audience for what’s to come, so stay tuned as Aviations prepares to release more music, artwork, videos, and content in support of their new album “The Light Years”, released January 19th, 2018.
