Have you ever fallen and scraped your knee while riding a bicycle? If you have, you know that you must get back on, because this thing is your only way back home. The feelings of fear must be set aside; you must get up, dust yourself off, climb on the bike, and ride. Whether with bands, jobs, family or just life in general, everyone knows the feeling of failure and the fear that must be overcome in order to move on. This very concept describes the birth of what is now known as Outrun the Gun.

In early September 2006, Outrun the Gun was formed out of Akron/Canton, Ohio local favorites, Leadway and Widdlesworth. Outrun the Gun is comprised of each member of Leadway, plus Chris Kingsland (former drummer of Widdlesworth) who, after much prayer and consideration following the dispersion of Widdlesworth, assumed the lead vocalist position. The writing began and the band clicked immediately as a result of each member choosing to use the gifts that they have been given to tell others of the love that they've found in Jesus Christ. This is the staple of Outrun the Gun.

With musical influences ranging from Misery Signals to The Receiving End of Sirens, it could be said that whether their sound is unique or not, they have certainly taken a different approach to making music. Outrun the Gun has often been compared to the likes of Life in Your Way and August Burns Red. One can not help but notice the contrast between the extremely heavy breakdowns and the more melodic progressions involving singing, group vocals or chanting. Their musical journey has been very interesting thus far, with every musician always doing their best to be honest and real, not only musically, but also personally. Outrun the Gun has developed a sound that tells of a past that is haunting and at times painful, but a strength and hope for the future that is found in Christ. It could be said that they are a band full of members who are genuinely interested in loving people.
