Run Chicken Run band is born in October 2014, after several adjustments the group reaches the final formation consisting of: Michele Montesi on vocals and guitar, Leonardo Piccioni on guitar, Paolo Scarabotti on bass and Mirko Santacroce on drums.
From the first meetings of the band the style was clear: Hard Rock. A hard Rock with blues nuances completely new.
In the summer of 2016 he released his first album entitled "Open the grill".
Recorded in the Pink House studio, it is published by RaRa Records, a label that even if it does not deal with Rock music after listening to the songs has decided to expand its channels to this genre.
In 2018 the collaboration with the Brothel of Sound Agency begins and in April of the same year  Run Chicken Run are the special guest of the Saxons of Oliver / Dawson.
Run Chicken Run are back in style, after two years from "Open The Grill", they release the new album "Do not Forget The Wine" containing ten unpublished songs and released through Volcano Records.
If with "Open The Grill" I was convinced, with this new work, the band reconfirms, in my opinion, as one of the excellent bands around the Country.
Sound of impact, a hard rock, naked and raw, as I like it, how it should be played. No frills, no tinsel.
A little 'AC / DC style, a bit' with metal references eighties, "Do not Forget The Wine" is the classic slap in the face, a race in the car, here, the comparison could be this. Yes, because this album smells of dust from the long American streets, dirty and wild. Fasten your seatbelts, the Run Chicken Run are back!
Since from the opener "Rust From Space", it shows all the grit of the band, their musicality is very successful with the perfect harmony. Run Chicken Run play to have fun and to entertain.
"Your Girl" shows the acquired maturity compared to the previous work and gives us a compact track, excellent riffs and a solid rhythm.
"Louder On You" is really gritty, overbearing, with a retro style but with a purely modern soul. It's rock and it feels!
Blues streaks in "Sun", a rhythmic and decidedly catchy track, of another level is "My Heart Is A Stone" that reminds me of Chris Holmes' solo works, deep voice and great guitar.
Another great song is "Black Shadow", a track that does not give up and does not detach the foot from the accelerator, rather, it sinks more and does not let us get off this race.
Quiet the next song "Good Brewer", but do not think that the band takes the blow, in fact, recharge with a nice piece of hard rock blues.
Rhythm, rhythm and more rhythm for "Boredom Killers", gritty and pounding.
And so we continue this race with "Real Man", another very interesting and speedy piece.
To close the album "Black Out", the last stretch of road for this fun race together with Run Chicken Run that offer good rock wild from the first and last track, a decidedly adrenaline piece.
"Do not Forget The Wine" is the most amusing album, atypical but at the same time classic, that I have heard in this 2018, one of the best Italian products released this year.
