RunHideFight serve up two fine cave-stompin’ sides of throwback rock on their debut single for Hidden Volume Records. There’s so much here that really works on this 7″, especially for fans of the three chord monte style of garage rock that the group specializes in with just the right amount of power pop, and psychedelia folded into their sound to keep things interesting.
"Philadelphia rock’n’roll gang RunHideFight offers us two songs in which classic garage rock’n’roll meets wild protopunk. RunHideFight are quite a new band since they played their first show last year, but they already sound as a tight unit."
"Bringing us ultimate garage punk, RunHideFight's debut single,"He's A Jerk," released via Hidden Volume Records, and we could not be more obsessed."

"RunHideFight's debut single “He’s A Jerk” packs a hefty punch of gunk and grime, highlighted by singer/guitarist Geeta Simons’ snarling vocals. “He’s A Jerk” is a garage-rock gem that belongs on your turntable. Get it now digitally or on wax via Hidden Volume Records."
3Hive Review: He's a Jerk Single
“He’s A Jerk channels the raw roots of punk rock and delivers the finest two minutes of garage punk I’ve heard this year. Because I Love You, brings the pace down with a track that brings psyche influences to bear whilst maintaining the attitude and menace of the a-side to create a near perfect pairing.”
"The slight psychedelia sobers into more grunge tinged, anthemic moods without any real giveaway. It’s a fluid sound, capturing different elements of rock ‘n’ roll with a stylish craze."
