Following 22 performances in 2011 in Germany and Austria, acoustic duo Runway 27, Left's first album 'Weekend Warriors' is set to be released. Says Runway 27, Left's Erich 'White Feather' Brandl, 'Actually, it's all in the lyrics of our new album's title track. When you're the new kid on the block on the blues scene, you're essentially strumming it out on weekends.' The harbinger of their upcoming first album, radio-only release 'Flawed & Flattened', has already gathered radio airplay in the UK, the USA, Spain, The Netherlands, Germany and Austria.
March 2012 sees the album 'Weekend Warriors' available at live performances and on download platforms. The release party took place on 9 March at long-time supporter venue 'Strasshofer Kellertheater', a unique venue a few miles east of Austria's capital of Vienna well-known for superb live performances of music and high-quality stand-up comedy. The road further took the blues duo to Bierkanzlei, Vienna's intimate focus for both audience and musicians run by 'beer chancellor' Manfred.
However, Runway 27, Left's German friends won't be left in the cold with their 2012 performances in Hamburg, Lüdenscheid, Bonn, Bad Nauheim and Landshut. The duo's album trail comes to full swing having them strum it out in Austria again, calling on Frohnleiten at Café meLounge and Wiener Neustadt at Hexenbräu, with additional shows throughout the year still to be confirmed.
Runway 27, Left is a blues project having former Trans Am/Sun Luca/Run Riot bass player Erich 'White Feather' Brandl and My Other Brother lead vocalist Anthony 'Tone' Kammerhofer team up.
The musicians (Erich Brandl - guitars, bass, banjo, backing vocals and Anthony Kammerhofer - lead vocals, rhythm guitars) try to reconnect with the roots of pop and rock music, calling their style 'In-Blues Entertainment'.
