Made up by (former) members of pop-punk acts Over It, Rufio and Don’t Look Down, Runner Runner are destined to become one of the hottest unsigned bands out there. Six weeks after setting up a music profile on MySpace, the group has already attracted over 4000 fans and is currently getting close to 2000 plays per day! Listen to the song See You Around.
