WINDRUNNER Sign to Famined Records

Debut New Single "Rose" Off Of Their Upcoming Album, "MAI", Out Nov. 30th, 2018


Vietnam’s very own WINDRUNNER has officially signed to Famined Records and has released the brand new single “Rose” off of their debut full length MAI which is due out Nov. 30th of this year.

Mixing elements of heaviness and progressive metalcore with incredibly melodic passages and solid vocals -courtesy of Duong Bui on both cleans and screams- , the quintet knows how to pack a punch, captivate the audience and tell a story: watch the video for the track where the two main characters are stuck in a world of “what ifs” when they realize that they missed out on their chance, and tell us that doesn’t hit close to home.

Check out the video for the single “Rose” below:

The band elaborated on the track:

“‘Rose’ is about how sometimes we are too afraid to chase our dreams, whether it be in love, work or life, and then we are left in denial of reality, stuck on how our life could have been. The video captures a dream that both of the characters are having – showing what they could have had, dwelling on past memories. Through this song, we hope to spread the message that it is important to live in the present instead of the past, to look to the future even when you feel you haven’t taken chances, to move on and to let go of the anchors of ‘what if?”
