Run Snowball Run, came together in 2008, after that they went on to form the band into what it would become in 2013, which lead them to write and record for a debut EP released titled "Lobo" released a year later in 2014. After that, they knew they wanted more, seeing just how much they can push this idea and see where it would develop next, and what the future would hold for them.
1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Run Snowball Run birthed around the year 2008 by Jeremy Robidoux (Acoustic rhythm guitarist, vocalist) as a side-project from his previous Post-Hardcore band ‘About Last Night’. Eventually, around 2013, it grew into a full-on band of its own, RSR was completed by Vince Roy and Dakota-James Cooke on lead guitars and vocals, Antoine Rochefort on bass and the charming Simon Bissonnette-Campeau on drums and vocals. Having then released a debut EP entitled ‘Lobo’ in 2014, RSR had put its foot in the door and had sparked a flame in their stomach leaving them wanting more and seeing how are they can push their idea and development.
2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?
The “Run” aspect of RSR came from the fact that this was, became and maintains the titled of being a place where we can run off to, a place to escape and turn all the emotions and feelings related to the day-to-day situations we live via both good and bad. A place where we could take those positive and negative energy and emotions & turn them into compositions and stories to share with our fans and anyone who might be curious, the “Snowball” piece of the RSR name represents the idea of a rolling snowball; accumulating experience and history as our story develops.
3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?
4. How would you describe your style?
It took us a while to be able to come to a conclusion for that question actually, but we would say that over time since our formal starting date together we’ve leaned towards a Post-Alt Indie-Rock sound but are still widening and growing as we go.
5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?
6. Do you have any new music in the works?
We are entering the studio in a couple weeks to record and polish up the full-length we have been composing since the release of 2014’s “Lobo”. Twelve tracks representing the stems which have grown from the seeds Lobo offered, taking our chemistry and mixing that into our relations to strengthen our foundations to be able to support the experience we have accumulated since.
7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?
RSR has played an average of about a show a month average in the past two years, including special events and acoustic performances; we try to stay regular while keeping a division between shows and locations to maximize our ticket sales. We are also lined up to start polishing up our blueprints via our first official tour, however, that will be more prioritized after the completion of the current studio process.
8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?
Discover who we are, what we are capable of, how bad we really want whatever it is we might find ourselves wanting, finding out what we have to offer and how our five minds can work together to make the most of RSR and its energy.
9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
We are on most social media, the basic stuff such as Facebook, Insta, Twit and etc. We have our own site going at www.RunSnowballRun.com, and you can catch our music either via FB or iTunes to be a little more convenient but by all means, feel free to come to one of our performances and buy a copy directly from us!
10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?
That we try to compose and grow as a whole, hence 5 different point of views and opinions were put into the mix and we are open minded to comments and thoughts as we try to use all forms of energy towards constructive development.
