Vancouver’s GETAWAY VAN Is Rip Roaring & Ready To Go With New Single ‘Lord I’ve Been Running’
Self Titled Debut Out Feb 23rd
New to the Vancouver rock scene, GETAWAY VAN has been maneuvering through venues to bring their slightly out of control punky blues stoner fuzz rock to entertained audiences for the past year. Collectively, the band shares a broad taste in music and using that to their advantage it’s translated into a record full of different styles and influences that they are gearing up to release on February 23, 2019, which features their latest single ‘Lord I’ve Been Running’.
Coming from a personal place, the lyrics to the single were written by Zach Fox and it’s hard hitting with a real classic rock feel.
“This song has a little bit of everything. Some Zeppelin, ZZ Top, RHCP, all wrapped up in a Getaway Van bow. This heavy, classic rock tune is about life taking everything out of you until you feel like you have nothing left to give. The narrator is pleading with God/the universe/anyone who will listen, to just give him a break.”
Fans of Stone Temple Pilots, Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters don’t have long to wait for this release:

Hey, we’re Getaway Van: Four fellas who are just tryin’ to make you feel like you’re flying down the side of a mountain in a speeding 80s cargo van.
It’s a very teamwork oriented approach and people can expect to not be able to look away from the bouncing and jumping around on stage complete with them occasionally taking their clothes off. Taking the desert rock vibe and making it a little aggressive and little out of control, the audience can definitely expect to have a great time.
In 2018, Getaway Van recorded two EPs, ‘Brokedown’ and ‘Burnouts’ and in February 2019 they are geared to release their debut self titled full length featuring the single ‘Lord I’ve Been Running’. It’s foot-to-the-floor rock n’ roll that shakes rooms like a straight piped V8. Bringing roots of stoner rock, blues, punk, and folk, a Getaway Van performance is your very own experience of controlled chaos.

“Continuing in the same vein of Truckfighters-esque stoner rock heard on January’s Burnouts EP, we are treated to a much fuller sound on this release… It’s meatier, it’s harder, it’s heavier. If that sounds a bit pornographic, you’re not far off, because this is a dirty record — full of fuzz and viscera.” – Vancity Rockers
