Run River North x Phorus To Share “Monsters Calling Home” Video; On Tour Now
March 17, 2015 BY Nettwerk
Los Angeles-based Run River North partnered with Phorus, a subsidiary of DTS, Inc. to share the official music video for “Monsters Calling Home” from their self-titled debut (out now via Nettwerk Records).
As the first company to bring to market a DTS Play-Fi enabled speaker, Phorus set a new standard in the audio industry by streaming lossless, high-quality audio from iOS, Android and Windows PCs, to multiple rooms or from multiple users, simultaneously using standard Wi-Fi. With the “Monsters Calling Home” music video, the company offers a first glimpse of their new Phorus PS5 Speaker in action.
Run River North deals with themes of hope, struggle and identity. As such, album track “Growing Up” is prominently featured in the Ron Howard produced film, The Good Lie, featuring Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon (Out October 3).
Debuting on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart at #3, the band has performed on VH-1 “Big Morning Buzz,” CMT’s “Country Concrete,” and been featured by The Wall Street Journal, Last Call With Carson Daly, NPR Here & Now, NPR Weekend Edition with Scott Simon, PBS Artbound, Daytrotter, KCET “Studio A” music series, Acoustic Café and Lexus: Music Uncovered, a CBS pre-Grammy special exploring Los Angeles hot spots and up and coming bands. They also premiered their first official music video for lead single “Fight To Keep” on TeamCoco, the official website of Conan. Prior to getting a record deal, the band recorded and filmed a viral video for “Fight To Keep” in their Hondas using GoPro cameras. The video experiment led to a Jimmy Kimmel Live! performance and a Bronze Lion Award at Cannes Film Festival.
Currently on the road with Australia’s Boy & Bear, the band will have a run of headline dates, starting in DC on October 18. During the summer, the band embarked on their first US tour, selling out dates along the way, including Los Angeles’ famed Troubadour, New York’s Bowery Ballroom and a sold out appearance at Amoeba Hollywood. Full tour dates below.
