Hard and heavy Canadian newcomers Hail the Villain were one of the breakout acts on the first-ever Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Tour last Summer, and there’s been no turning back for a band that’s surprising and inspiring at an accelerating pace, winning new fans on both sides of the border with their unexpectedly fantastic 2010 album Population: Declining from Warner Music/Roadrunner Records.
We’re proud to present the world premiere of Hail the Villain’s video for "Runaway," a kickass scream-along single off Population: Declining. Here’s what the guys had to say about the video and working with director/photographer extraordinaire Phil Mucci:
"We had an awesome time making this video with Phil Mucci. It’s always a relief when someone can take your vision and make it a reality. We hope you guys enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it….
WHEN I SAY GO…."

Check out the video for "Runaway," for the first time anywhere:
“Runaway” was the official theme song for 2010’s WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view event, and has turned many interested heads with a blistering burst of impassioned rock goodness that showcases what separates the Canadian crushers’ sound from the endless tides of would-be competitors.
Further proof that Hail The Villain are anything but your typical band lies in the fact that their world includes not only the music, but a dynamic live show, animated videos, a comic book, a unique interactive website and plans for a film, if time and energy allows. “Most people are going to aim for what’s attainable,” says frontman Bryan Crouch. “For us, it’s aiming for what’s unattainable.”
