Formed in 2009, LA-based trio Rundown Kreeps perform amped-up melodic Punk Rock with heavy dashes of frantic Ska, punk backbeats, and twangy vibes to keep audiences moving across a variety of dance floors. The band self-released their first E.P. "Breaking The Routine" in January of 2015. On August 12th 2017 the group dropped their debut album entitled "illside village" and followed it with the release of their 2018 single "We All Go," as well as a cover of the Coldplay classic "The Scientist," released in 2019.
Rundown Kreeps have completed several tours throughout the Southwest, Pacific Northwest, and Hawaii and have shared stages with notable acts like The Toasters, Reel Big Fish, Nekromantix, Buck-O-Nine, The Wierdos, The Phenomenauts, and Mustard Plug, to name a few.
The band's label debut single “Held Down” will be released on Tuesday, March 9, and is the first track off the band's forthcoming, as yet still untitled full length, due out later this year.
"Held Down" was recorded by Jonathan Mireles (audio engineer for Travis Barker as well as Machine Gun Kelly's "Tickets to My Downfall) and mastered by Roger Lima (Less Than Jake).
The band says, "Held Down” discusses the self-reflection of daily paranoia through the eyes of a Chicano living in Los Angeles during 2020. The lyrics glide over the topics of racism, social status, gentrification, death, and self-awareness in a borderline stoic manner. Sometimes resolution is inexistent, until you learn to be untroubled without it."
All of Rundown Kreeps' past catalog of music is available on Apple Music, Spotify, Rhapsody, Tidal, Google Play, Pandora, YouTube and more!
