'Good Friends, Bad Luck' is not only the title of The Run Up's newest 5-track offering, but also a perfect summary of life in a DIY punk rock band. The new EP from the Bristol-based melodic punks is inspired by making the best out of terrible situations, friendships and being true to yourself.

“We decided on 'Good Friends, Bad Luck' because of the amount of shitty luck we've had on the road recently with our van breaking down, missing shows and even getting robbed of our wheels on a dual carriageway in Germany.”  said vocalist Larry Bernard. “We are super lucky to have each other to rely on to make the best of the bad situations.”

Today see's the band release the lead single, 'The Upsides Of Being Down', a song about meeting a new friend, clicking straight away and just having a blast of a summer. "It's about how a good friend can help shape you and bring the best out of you when you are simply being yourselves together."

'Good Friends, Bad Luck' has seen the band strengthen their existing relationship with Real Ghost Records, as well as linking ties with German punk rock label, Uncle M. 'Good Friends, Bad Luck' will be released worldwide on Special Edition 12” Etched Vinyl and Digital Download on Friday 28th September 2018.
