Big thanks to B-Sides and Badlands for premiering "Run Away With You" today!
"...a heavenly-sedating new song called “Run Away with You,” which galvanizes the lush ripples of classic rock and marries with an enchanting powdering of alternative pop.”
Check out the full premiere over at B-Sides and Badlands:
"Run Away With You" releases everywhere tomorrow, July 13.
The City Living vinyl release show AND my birthday is July 26. Come celebrate at Berlin. I'll be joined by RFA & Ian Mellencamp. It would be a tremendous help if you bought a ticket in advance. With that in mind I'm giving away a FREE t-shirt with every ticket purchased Monday July 9 - Sunday July 15. Just come to the merch table at the show and we'll have your name. That's ticket sales this week only. Putting on a big release show is like throwing a party. It's really helpful when people RSVP.

My next single "Run Away With You" will be releasing this Friday July 13! This is the last single before the full album releases on July 27. Check out the video below to preview the single.
It's hard to scroll through Twitter or even leave home without becoming painfully aware of all the injustice that's happening in the United States. Children being separated from their families is just one more shameful policy in the barrage of assaults this administration has made against minorities and our planet. I don't think equal rights for everyone should be partisan. I don't think we should permit monied interests to prevent a federal assault weapons ban or prevent health care for all by buying our politicians. I don't think it's too much to expect that everyone in America have access to clean drinking water.
I grew up with a teacher for a father and a mom who owned a small business. I watched them struggle, work incredibly hard, and sacrifice to provide me with the best life they could. What about families who aren't steeped in the kind of privilege I was born into as a white, male American? Income inequality is something I've addressed in my music before and I think it's the most pressing issue facing the United States right now. There is of course so much social injustice taking place that it is unwise to ignore the intersectionality of the many issues involving gender, race, and class as well. There are powerful people in the top 1% who own all of the wealth while people I know personally are burdened by 2 and sometimes 3 jobs just to pay rent and be able to eat. It's not right.
I got the idea for this video last week and decided to put out the song over the weekend. There is a freedom that comes from being a fully independent artist that I cherish. I want to throw my hat in the ring to try the best I can to speak truth to power.

"His upcoming record is plentiful in sounds of rock and roll nostalgia, and aural references to living in New York, textured by the blissful ignorance of living life unintentionally, before waking up to an awareness of the reckoning and difficult choices that are ahead.

We're excited to announce that Rue's new single "Vamonos" is premiering now with Atwood Magazine!
"Like Wilco, Father John Misty, The War on Drugs and more, Rue Snider takes the good and bad of life’s majesty and distills it into a complex musical adventure brimming with warmth and sadness. He accomplishes, with one song, what some artists take their whole lives to create: We may come out the other side smiling, but behind that smile is a tear." - Mitch Mosk (Atwood Magazine)
Head on over to their website to read more and have a listen! "Vamonos" releases everywhere tomorrow.
