The Fader did an awesome interview/feature on our label a few days ago. We talked about Teen Suicide, Elvis Depressedly and a bunch more. Check out an excerpt below or click the image to read the full article.
Run For Cover might be “the future,” but they’re also pretty old school, balancing ambition with the ethos and quality control of a classic record label, the very sort that Mat Cothran says he “dreamt of signing to when [he] was a kid.” They also keep a really great, down-to-earth YouTube channel with a cool mix of service-y fodder for gear heads and lighthearted interviews with artists on their roster (click here to watch Elvis Depressedly talk about getting in trouble as a kid and his favorite UFC fighter). “People have accused us of trying to ‘cash in’ on different genres or something,” Casazza says of the reaction to Run For Cover’s never-look-back attitude. “But that’s obviously ignoring the fact that the music we release now is far less accessible than what we were releasing five years ago. Staying relevant was definitely not a motivational factor.”
