Dead Run‘ is a heavy, pounding rock track that touches on the subject of addiction. The song was written by the band and rock legend Ricky Warwick (Black Star Riders, Thin Lizzy, The Almighty) who also lends backing vocals to the chorus. “When writing Dead Run, Ricky and I explored lyrics we had written about people in our lives who had struggled with addiction,” says Anchor Lane’s lead singer and frontman Conor Gaffney. “It was a special moment when we realised that we’d both written lyrics at different times which worked so well together and that really gave us a strong foundation to build on.

Dead Run‘ was recorded at Vale Studios in the Midlands with renowned rock musician, writer and producer Toby Jepson (Wayward Sons, Gun, Little Angels). “Toby really wanted to capture the power and energy of the track,” adds drummer Scott Hanlon. “We recorded every take fully live with minimal overdubs. By the end we were exhausted but it was worth every take.
