“Runaway Days”, the band’s first studio album in 9 years, is the 7th release from their outstanding career that spans more than two decades.
The Warratahs have captured the affection of the New Zealand public through countless live performances, and contributed iconic hits that have become an integral part of New Zealand music.
In typical Warratahs style, the latest offering is essentially a new collection of Barry Saunders songs. All titles on Runaway Days were written by Barry, with the exception of a charming cover of ‘Ring Of Fire’, the classic tune by June Carter Cash.
The Warratahs are Barry Saunders (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Nik Brown (violin, mandolin), Mike Knapp (drums) and Nick Theobald (bass, vocals). Runaway Days was recorded at The Depot in Devonport (Auckland, New Zealand) with engineer Dave Rhodes.
