Running Young was formed after lead singer Joel recovered from open-heart surgery at just 25 years of age. “I should have died before I even got to hospital because my aorta basically just popped like a balloon,” says Joel, smiling. “I spent two weeks in intensive care fighting for my life and, somehow, miraculously made it through.” The track 'Out of Time' was written about this harrowing time in Joel's life. According to his doctors, with all of the post-op complications factored in, his chances of survival sat at around 2-3% but it seemed it wasn't his time to go. "After coming that close to death you tend to gain some insight into what you want out of life and how lucky you are to still be a runner in the human race", says Joel. "I decided what I wanted out of life was to be true to my heart for whatever time I had left and also to see if I could encourage others to do the same. The best way I knew how to both of those things was to start a band!"

With that goal in mind he began writing and recording songs in his bedroom and shared them online. Over the next 12 months he met with dozens of musicians and in early 2014 the line up was finalised to include; Joel Famularo - lead vocals/bass, Ben Williams - keys/vocals, Benjamin Cropper - guitar/vocals, James Hallal - guitar/vocals and John Bellew on the drums.

“The songs were ready, we just had to learn them together as a band and get out there,” says Ben. “We've managed to find a great combination of people and musical talent that allows us to bring these songs to life on stage and have fun while we do it!”

It wasn't long before Running Young were making waves on the Melbourne live music scene. Their unique sound blends Brian Wilson style four part harmonies with music that would feel right at home in a stadium today if and when given the chance. “It’s like if the Beach Boys, The Killers, U2 and Coldplay all got together and had a baby, and that baby had a doppelgänger, we'd bear a passing resemblance to that doppelgänger”, laughs Joel. “The goal was to mix in familiar elements but in an unfamiliar way.”

Their debut EP We Are the Sons immediately hit the ground running, gaining the attention of the hit American TV show Shameless with their track Out Of Time being featured in the episode Hope Springs Eternal in early 2014. With another EP on the drawing board and live dates booked throughout Melbourne, 2014 looks to be a busy and promising year for Running Young, however they will be keeping it simple and focused. "Basically, we just love timeless music and we think the world could use some more, so we're going to try our best to hit that mark."

Title: Did You See. This is the first single off our debut EP 'We Are the Sons'. It's a song about wanting to wake up and embrace all that life truly has to offer.

Title: Out of Time. This song was featured on an episode of US TV show 'Shameless' earlier this year. It's a song about when I thought I was going to die in late 2011 when I had emergency open heart surgery. It's about spending my last moments alive with my family.
