“‘Run Away’ is about frantically, passionately clinging on to hope,” Jocelyn explains. “It can feel impossible to maintain hoping at times – I think we’ve all had that sense, especially recently.” I’m sure there have been occasions when everything around me seemed to be suddenly too much, too heavy.” “This song is about converting that fear into strength,” Chris continues. “Our music has always been a source of strength for us, and I hope we can pass that strength on to you.”
The band’s most powerful and real album to date, Favorite Ghosts, is set to be released on May 27th.
