SPB exclusive: Positions Of Power by Runt

SPB exclusive: Positions Of Power by Runt

Runt - Positions Of Power

Scene Point Blank is excited to host a stream of the brand new Runt LP Positions Of Power, out on Feb. 9 on La Vida Es Un Mus on 12” vinyl.
The UK band splits members between London and Sheffield and spits furious and primal punk full of rage and energy that hits its targets quickly and moves on. Positions Of Power captures many emotions, ranging from fierce and urgent to nihilism and anxiety.
The band released a cassette last year and also share members with Frau, No, Permission, Efialtis, Good Throb, Farce, and Sarcasm.

Order the record from La Vida Es Un Mus.
