Chicago based instrumental quartet, Outrun the Sunlight, has been crafting powerful and emotional songs since 2011. The passion project of guitarist Austin Peters is now a force of influence in the modern metal, bringing together post-rock and metal communities through a common interest in sound and experience.


Words about Red Bird

Heavy Blog Is Heavy – "What was once a judgemental contrast can be broken apart to fuel forward motion, one side given precedence over the other in the quest for individual novelty. Outrun the Sunlight‘s latest release, Red Bird, is a perfect example of this. Meditating upon the inherent conflicts extant in their earlier works, the post-rock band have decided to lean more heavily on their more introspective tones. The result is a deeply expressive album which, while perhaps tinged with some longing for more straight-forwardly aggressive passages, fully explores and fleshes out one half of this band’s sound."

Distorted Sound Mag (9/10) – "Making every second of the album count, this is an incredibly concise effort that does more than enough with its time to leave the listener completely fulfilled but eager to hear more. Carrying a natural warmth to its sound that elevates the writing to another level, this is a masterful and emotive piece that is telling of a band that’s matured and grown significantly in confidence. Easily the band’s best work yet, Red Bird deserves your attention."

Reviews To My Blood (9.8/10) – "To listen to new music and see it as an outstanding work can be a double edged sword; on one side they can follow the same style an leave us completely satisfied, but on the other hand it can be what we did not expect and divert from their previous style."
