Hellbranch Run takes on the world with their new release.
After five years of continuous shows and nonstop writing, Hellbranch Run released their modern rock debut album, Us Against the World. The 11-song album was released digitally on January 20, 2012 through online retailers such as iTunes and Amazon among others. HBR celebrated the physical album release on April 13, 2012 at the famous Newport Music Hall in Columbus, Ohio with a hometown crowd of over 500 loyal fans.
In its five years of existence the band has played some of the best venues Ohio has to offer with national bands such as July for Kings (MCA), Taproot (Atlantic), Mayday (Sony), Ivoryline (Tooth & Nail), The Fold (Tooth & Nail), Icon for Hire (Tooth & Nail), I Am the Avalanche (Drive-Thru), and even rap legend Tone Loc among others.
In 2009 the band was featured on the Toledo, Ohio television network BCSN. HBR also played a sold out show at The Basement in Columbus, Ohio. In 2010 the band created a Columbus based music showcase called The Uprising. Since then the reoccurring showcase has attracted national booking agencies, sponsorships, and radio backing. In 2011, with increasing momentum in their live show element, the band began recording their first studio album. During the recording process they leaked new songs on 99.7 The Blitz and have made live on-air appearances and performances on the station as well. They also release a limited edition 4-song EP during their time in the studio.
The 2012 debut album, fueled with the two lead singles "Never Again" and the title track "Us Against the World" has received very positive feedback from fans, colleagues, and critics.
