'Live Right Now' is the first single from the band's forthcoming album.
One of Northern Ireland's hottest exports of the 1980s, Silent Running, has returned to release a new song. After the break-up of the band in 1989, Silent Running reunited to play sold-out gigs at Belfast venue Voodoo in June and November 2019.
'Live Right Now' follows the band's November 2019 single ‘Lost Boy’, and their Live in Voodoo, Belfast album.
The song was written by lead singer Peter Gamble, who explained:
“The idea for ‘Live Right Now’ originally came from my wife constantly saying to me, 'if you want to do anything in life do it now – you never know what’s around the corner. Don't put things off', and also the feeling that life was racing by and I was just a spectator running on a hamster wheel, never stopping to enjoy the moment.
"I guess the idea of making the most of life and enjoying every precious moment has become even more relevant given the situation the world now finds itself in and the uncertain times we are living in”.
