I’m enjoying this band and will forego a review since it has already been said.  Please read  a very informative review:  http://indietoday.net/

Our second album Distance will be released in on Clairecords August 24th, 2010. It’s also available in Japan on Quince Records and a vinyl LP will be released later this year.

About Tears Run Rings

Laura Watling – vocals & bass
Matthew Bice – vocals & guitar
Ed Mazzucco – guitar
Dwayne Palasek – drums

Tears Run Rings is a long distance relationship. In another life these old friends were in the breezy mid-90’s indiepop combo The Autocollants and founded the renowned indie label Shelflife Records. Now separated by the cities of Portland, San Francisco, and Los Angeles they collaborate through the magic of the internet. The band records in 3 separate studios, transferring tracks back and forth over the wires until they are perfect.

  • The track “Mind the Wires” is featured in the Gregg Araki’s (The Doom Generation, Mysterious Skin) film KABOOM
  • Ed and Laura live in Portland, Mathew in San Francisco, and Dwayne lives in LA
  • The band writes their songs mainly by sharing tracks over the internet. They record in 3 separate studios
  • Tears Run Rings has 3 releases to date A Question and an Answer EP (2007), Always, Sometimes, Seldom, Never (2008), and Distance (2010)
  • Dwayne, Laura, and Ed began working together in the 1990s in the twee-pop outfit The Autocollants
  • Tears Run Rings was born out of an Autocollants reunion show in 2005. Matthew joined on vocals & guitar one year later
  • Matthew & Ed also run Shelflife Records (Thieves Like Us, The Radio Dept.)
  • Ed and Laura are married
