 THE RUINS RELEASE THIRD SINGLE, “RUN”

 

Available at all digital service providers today

 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 10, 2017) — Alt-pop duo The Ruins announce the release of their new single, “RUN,” to all digital service providers today. “RUN” can be downloaded from iTunes here or streamed on Spotify here.

 

Co-written by the group’s own Debra Black and Victor Gonzalez, along with songwriter Jeff Bowman, “RUN” marks the third single in a series of releases from the Atlanta-based duo. Their inaugural single, “Deliverance,” debuted in May 2016. Since its exclusive premiere on NewReleaseToday.com, the song’s official music video has garnered more then 12,000 views to date. The Ruins’ second single, “Bow Down,” followed in early August. Now, kicking off 2017 with the release of “RUN,” The Ruins want to encourage listeners to flee from darkness and run toward the light—even when the future seems uncertain.

 

“This song reminds me that no matter how hard life gets, no matter how many ‘waves come crashing in,’ we have a choice to run to hope. We have a way of escape that has been offered to us through the most painful and darkest of times. We may not see what’s up ahead, but we can trust in the goodness and faithfulness of God,” Black says. “I am super pumped about this song, because as most of the songs we write, it talks about real life and comes from a place of personal experience.”

 

“I love that ‘RUN’ doesn’t discredit the fear of heading toward something that’s unknown. I think people are always scared to take a leap of faith and trust something they can’t see, but the message that you find in ‘RUN’ brings a picture of reality to mind that sometimes it’s better to head toward a hope you can’t see rather than being stuck where you feel like you’re just taking blow after blow,” Gonzalez offers. “I hope this song encourages people to take more leaps of faith in their life.”

 

The backstory of The Ruins is a leap of faith in and of itself. The two friends bonded through a common love of songwriting. It was on an international mission trip where Gonzalez found himself overlooking ancient ruins that his perspective on life and faith shifted. Meanwhile, back in Georgia, Black—who previously released a solo worship project and was leading worship at her local church—came to the realization that she needed a partner if she was going to pursue her dreams centered in pop music. When Gonzalez returned home, he and Black formed a deep friendship and musical partnership that resulted in The Ruins.

 

The EDM-heavy production, tight harmonies and perceptive lyrics found on their new single, “RUN,” give listeners a small taste of the creativity that defines this vocal/songwriting duo. To keep up with The Ruins, visit www.theruinsmusic.com.

Newcomers The Ruins Debut Single “Deliverance”; An Anthem To Celebrate Real Freedom

 

Digital single presale live now, available for download on May 13

 

2016 tour kicks off In Dallas, Ga. May 20

 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 12, 2016) - New Christian Pop Duo The Ruins makes their debut with the new single “Deliverance,”  available for pre-sale now on iTunes, with a release of May 13. The Atlanta-based group comprised of longtime friends and musical partners, Debra Black and Victor Gonzalez, will kick off their 2016 new album release and tour on May 20 at West Ridge Church in Dallas, Ga. 

 "’Deliverance’ is more than a song for us. It is the catalyst to tell a story and talk about all the things in this world that try to keep us trapped; which for some of us, is ourselves,” expressed The Ruins of their new single. “We want people to listen to this song and be empowered to take that first step towards whatever it is that is holding them back from the freedom we all have been given."

 

The Ruins is a duo of dynamic passion, musical excellence and unparalleled creativity. Perhaps what distinguishes them most, however, is their unrelenting desire and penchant for empathy. Their first and foremost goal in life - and in their music - is to meet others wherever they may be—without judgment or pretense. Together, Black and Gonzalez said, “We know God wants us all to bring our baggage, our insecurities, our doubts, our “ruins” to Him…so He could make something beautiful.  It’s from this vantage point from which our name was born. “

 

The Ruins Tour kicks off at West Ridge Church, 3522 Hiram Acworth Highway, in Dallas, Ga. on May 20. All are invited to attend and experience a night of The Ruins music, see their debut music video and hear the duo share their story of faith.
