Hailing from Huntington Beach, CA, Runner Runner originated as an emo-pop side project for the members of the skatepunk band Over It, allowing for more exploration of the group's pop and electro influences.
Both bands are comprised of members Ryan Ogren (vocals, guitar), Peter Munters (vocals, guitar), Jon Berry (vocals, bass), Nick Bailey (vocals, guitar), and James Ulrich (drums). In its Runner Runner configuration, the group released an EP in 2008 with the help of producer Tommy Henriksen, fashioning the same sort of dancefloor-friendly music that made Metro Station a hit earlier that year. In February of 2011, the band made their full-length debut for Capitol Records with the self-titled Runner Runner. ~ Steve Leggett
