Running the Risk asks "Where Has Rock Gone?"

Where has rock gone?   

Los Angeles four piece, Running the Risk, have been wondering just that. "It makes it really hard to put together a fun bill for Friday night when every other band in LA seems to be whining about their shitty girlfriend. Grow some balls hombre," says front woman Nicki Taylor. "No worries, we'll take it from here." Seems to be the band's stance on the future.

 



There's a lot of sound to come out of the small package known as Nicki Taylor. Maria Nyren asked, "How does it feel to be the next big thing?" in an interview for Cosmopolitan.com.

 



With Running the Risk set to release the first half of their two part official EP "Because We Can" at the beginning of the year through indie label, In Flight Music Group, all systems are go. The vinyl 7" release contains two songs you may have heard before: Black Sabbath's "War Pigs" (which has been flipped, turned, and jacked up) along with Talk Talk's "Talk Talk." The band has been hush hush about where the idea to mix these two songs came from; they're only explanation so far has been "Because We Can," which has now become the title. Tour Dates along the West Coast will be announced along with the release of the EP in March.

"I obviously couldn't give you any advice on music. You've got your fuckin hustle on," said Jock, New Rock 104.1 Fresno.

Their first output as a group was a collection of tunes/err demos rightfully called "The Monster EP" which contained original songs centered around impulses of love, hate, and rebirth. Running the Risk decided to give the EP away for free, and it quickly spread around the web, gaining positive reviews from fans and critics alike. As well as radio play around Central California.

Blogger TotallyFuzzy said, "If it's true what it says on SoundCloud, that this is still just a demo - I don't believe it for a second! - then you better hold on to your horses - and your trousers - for the finished product."

 



The lineup consists of front-woman Nicki Taylor, guitarist Nick Bell, bassist Curtis Corwin, & drummer Aaron Cohan
