Mallory Run who call Edinboro, PA home, is the emo rock scene's best-kept secret. The four-piece group originally formed in 2015, on a college campus through a mutual love of none other than Citizen, and chose their band name after a hometown landmark. Their heavy-yet-melodic post-pop punk sound has been influenced by acts like Boston Manor, Knuckle Puck, Movements, and The Story So Far, but also draws inspiration from genres like jazz, and punk.
Over the last half-decade, they’ve more than paid their dues touring extensively across the country and honing their individual crafts in a live setting, collectively creating an extremely polished and precise sound that wows any listener who’s experienced it performed live.
Having put the hours in, Mallory Run is poised to shed their best-kept secret title, and emerge at a new level of cohesive musicianship with their latest EP that they promise radiates optimism titled Picture Perfect, (out May 21, 2021).
The band felt the lead single off the EP titled “Oh, Normalcy” is the most logical choice, “Since we’ve had to be inside and away from what we love to do for a year and a half, it only makes sense to put out the song that came out of that first,” guitarist Joe explained.
Having used the added downtime of the pandemic to truly polish the 5 track EP, the band; Dan, Albert, Joe, and Tommy proudly claim Picture Perfect is an accumulation of the best they had to offer over the past two years, and are ready to share their evolved and meticulously crafted sound with fans new and old.
The band hopes to see you where they feel most at home, back out on the road, sooner rather than later.
