We are very sad to inform you that MALRUN and lead singer Jacob Loebner have decided to part ways. The decision has come about because of growing incompatible interests in the band.
MALRUN will continue with full force, and the band is already making plans for the autumn, which will hopefully include a lot of shows and touring activities.
Jacob Loebner will also continue his musical career as a solo artist or with other projects. You can read Jacob’s statement below.
The rest of MALRUN are very pleased to announce that a new lead singer has already been found and that this break will in no way affect the band’s plans to grow even bigger. Danish powerball Nicklas Sonne will be taking over the microphone on all upcoming shows and recordings. The break will in no way affect the upcoming release of MALRUN’s 3rd album “Two Thrones” where Jacob sings. However, all MALRUN concerts will from now on be fronted by Nicklas Sonne.
We hope you will still positively receive the upcoming album as well as our new single “Cycle of Abuse”, which will soon be released as a music video with Jacob. We also hope you will continue your effortless support of Malrun in the future, because without it there is no MALRUN. Lastly, we hope you will check out Jacob’s solo project once new material emerges from that. You can check out MALRUN’s new lead singer Nicklas Sonne by clicking the link below.
Jacob states the following:
“Our differences couldn’t be resolved, and the 4 other guys in Malrun have chosen to continue their journey alone. I am passionate about music and view this unexpected situation as an opportunity to rethink my creativity outside former frames. I am of course proud of the “Two Thrones” Malrun album and the vocal work I did on it and look forward to the album being released on 29th August 2014. But at the same time I am already in the process of looking for new ways to express and release my music. So for those who would like to hear more of my music I expect to announce new projects within the near future. One project emerging from the fog now is a hardrock-based project with a clear pop twist where focus is on addictive and hook-based melodies. Another project emerging is an experimental thing digging deep into the roots of the old Danish folk and historic traditions and this ancient legacy will somehow meet and interbreed with modern rock and metal – so it will be immensely interesting to see what that journey brings. Stay tuned for more info soon from my side. Take care you all, all the best, Jacob”
MALRUN states the following:
“Although we are sad that Jacob isn’t part of MALRUN any longer, we are content that it is the best decision for everyone. The four of us are still driven by the passion and dream to break through and go out on the road as much as at all possible and look forward to seeing all of you on the road again soon!
We fully believe that this break will serve as a foundation on which we can build a great future in the new constellation. “Two Thrones” is still our baby and we will of course perform songs from all of our three MALRUN albums during concerts. However, we will strive to have some new music with Nicklas on vocals ready for you as soon as possible.
For now, we cannot wait to go on SummerBreeze in August with Nicklas in front, and we cannot wait ‘till we get some more shows in the calendar. We are not a second in doubt that we along with all of you will create fantastic experiences in the future!
All the best from the MALRUN camp
Mads, Patrick, Ulrik, Mikkel, and Nicklas”
We are pleased to announce the first single from the new album ‘Two Thrones’ which will be out August 29th.
The single is called ‘Justine’, check it out in the lyric video below!
Hope you’ll enjoy!
We are very happy to announce that we have signed a deal with swedish ViciSolum Productions. During the past couple of months we’ve been in close dialoge with several different labels, but ended up choosing ViciSolum as our future partner. They offered the right amount of dedication and commitment, so we’re sure our new album is in the right hands!
The release of the album is scheduled for 29th of August, but you don’t have to wait that long to listen to some of the new tunes. The first single ‘Justine’ will be released on the 14th of March, the second single ‘Cycle of Abuse’ will be release in June. Check out the cover for ‘Justine’ below.
On the live part, we will be playing Viborg Metal Festival on May 3rd and more shows are currently being booked.
Hope to see you out there!
Hi friends and fans!
We’ve just finished the recording of our 3rd album, and we’re currently waiting for the first mixes from Jacob Hansen. We will be releasing a Studio Diary in the near future, we have a lot of video clips to look through, so be patient! We will propably have the video ready in mid or late november.
Unfortunately, we haven’t got a record label for the album yet, so there’s no release date at this point. We’d really like to kick off this, in our own eyes, amazing album in a way we feel it deserves.
We will keep you updated on the progress, both here and on our Facebook.
Fans and friends of Malrun, we need your help!
We are currently working on our 3rd album, and we want to involve our fans and friends in the process. Do you want to play guitar on the album? Want to help with lyrics? Or simple get your hands on some limited merch?! Then take a look at this link!
Rock on! \m/
