Sweep the Leg Johnny, one of Chicago's hardest touring bands, returns to the plate with their sophomore album, a new bass player, a new release and a 67 show tour of the US and Canada.

Tomorrow We Will Run Faster presents a more refined and mature sound from the four piece. Melancholy yet resourceful, each song travels a different storyline: they build from timid introductions; move through dynamic soundscapes; and as poignant lyrics are carefully placed , the instruments explode. The saxophone creeps forward, while bass and drums follow twists and turns, searching for the right combination of fear and bravery. Once found, vocals attack and the guitar flanks. You will recognize it and the songs will revel in it. Bass player John Brady (Swing Kids, Spanakorzo) brings a proper
flavor to the Sweep the Leg lineup as the band releases their first album
on Southern Records.

The Players
Steve Sostak -Saxaphone/Vox
Chris Daly-Guitar
John Brady -Bass/Vox
Scott Anna -Drums

"The band's densely textured sound is as passionate and aggressive as that of Joan of Arc, June of 44 or Pave the Rocket, but clearly not emo-core." - Kelso

"It is here Sweep the Leg Johnny seeks to exact a certain
measure of justice. Everything comes together to form a cohesive,
beautiful, moving whole. Bury the pain. Bury it deep within the sound." -

For years Southern operated as a recording studio & the biz wheels behind labels like Crass, Corpus Christi, Bluurg & Dischord, before launching an eponymous imprint in 1991 ... more
