The Avalanches collaborate with Rivers Cuomo and Pink Siifu on new single 'Running Red Lights'

After recently returning to deliver their comeback single 'We Will Always Love You' alongside Blood Orange, The Avalanches are back once again to share another new release.

The new track 'Running Red Lights' sees the group team up with Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo as well as Pink Siifu for the warm and uplifting new offering.

Check out the new video for 'Running Red Lights' in the player and see the band's full statement about it below.

'Running Red Lights' didn’t start out as a defining moment; “a single” as it were. But Rivers responded to our fuzzed-out Spacemen 3 inspired jam with such open heartedness, that we soon dropped all pretense and got down to the heart of the matter… loss.

We love that wide eyed, elated, almost evangelical Los Angeles sense of possibility that he tapped into.

He captures that feeling that comes on the other side of the abyss, when you have lost everything and so then, there is nothing more to lose.

The way life is so beautiful and overwhelming and heartbreaking all at the same time. Rivers, like us, is always chasing the melancholy, that space...between the notes.

David had agreed to share his words with us for the middle 8 a few years back.
It’s a strange feeling releasing this now, 6 months after his passing, but we are so glad he got to hear the music, and it means a lot to us that he really liked it.

David wrote to me often through some dark, dark years and really pulled me through.

…Running Red Lights...is about such times.

Every moment is a gift. So live fearlessly. If you love someone, tell them.
Without connection…where are we?
As Rivers sings in the fade, “We are all we have…”
We have to have faith that that is enough.
