Today they release “On The Run”, a scalding dance track produced by Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads, ahead of the next leg of the band’s national tour.

Paul "HR" Hudson is the voice of punk/hardcore pioneers and Rock N' Roll Hall Of Fame nominees Bad Brains, one of the most influential bands to rise out of the 1980's. With Bad Brains, HR harnessed the fiery potential of melding punk rock, reggae, dub, jazz-fusion, metal, and funk into a kaleidoscopic art form centered around his faith in Rasta. HR's uplifting ethos - P.MA. (Positive Mental Attitude) - has cast a light amidst dark defiance, and inspired everyone.
