They Came Running
They Came Running is a band from the Southeast corner of Tennessee that formed in the fall of 2007 as a local worship band. They quickly became known for their heart, passion, and excitement both on and off the stage, and so their ministry grew out of just the local worship scene into a broader one—both musically and regionally. They have shared the stage with bands such as G.R.I.T.S., Spoken, Nevertheless, Our Heart’s Hero, Mandisa, Casting Crowns, and Group One Crew, and have played and traveled extensively throughout the Eastern United States. Their discography is diverse. Their debut album, The Way You Shine, featured an ambient/indie rock sound, which progressed into the edgier concept album The Sound on the Radio, followed by a worship record entitled The Battle Project, and finished off with a full-length Christmas album. They have had the privilege to work alongside some of the greatest musicians and speakers in the industry and get their feet wet in the radio business. Their single “Dry and Brittle,” off of The Sound on the Radio, was promoted by Shamrock Media alongside The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and Lecrae. TCR has also had the opportunity to partner with LifeWay to lead worship for FUGE camps for four years, serving as both full-time staff and contract musicians. No matter the venue, They Came Running has always been a ministry focused on pointing people towards Jesus Christ, and will continue to do so until they can no longer. No matter what the future holds for the band, they are comfortable following Jesus wherever He leads them. There have been rumors of a fifth studio album in the near future, so the band has asked that listeners keep their eyes on the sky for what is yet to come from They Came Running.
