Promoe‘s been running a lot these last years. Not like he wasn’t running before that, but the distances and the sceneries have changed drastically. He used to run 15 km’s three days a week in the woods of Rocklunda, Västeras (Sweden). On weekends he ran from the police in train yards, tunnels and city streets, leaving a trail of spray paint. Then he started touring with the Looptroop, building the foundation for what later would become Sweden’s biggest international hiphop group.

Since September 2002 however the tours have become longer, and more to the point: world domination. Around that time Looptroop had just finished recording their sophmore effort, The Struggle Continues, and Promoe, Supreme and the two drivers Perry Schumacher and Gangsta Pete embarked on a six week long self funded and self organized promotion tour in a mobile home. They called the adventure The Road To Hell, covered most parts of Europe and got in to all kinds of chaos, but considered the whole thing a big success.

With the album the touring continued, and when the Troop performed the Last Song for the last time halfway through December ’03 somewhere in Germany they had done over 120 shows in countries like South Africa, Russia, Japan, Australia; not to mention going all over the European continent at least twice. Apart from that Promoe managed yet another trip through Europe (by Inter rail) plus writing-, recording-, and plain chilling journeys to Jamaica, Cuba and Morocco. All the while living in both Granada, Spain and Uppsala, Sweden. All this running and moving back and forth and all over are some of the reasons why Promoe’s new, and second solo album is called “The Long Distance Runner”. It has also put a stamp on the sound of the album.

PromoeThe Long Distance Runner” to be released 12.04.2004 on Burning Heart Rec / David vs Goliath.
