Music fuels the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The inaugural Rock 'n' Roll Savannah Marathon & Half Marathon is thrilled to announce that Carolina Liar will headline the post-race concert on Nov. 5.

"We are thrilled to be able to have more than 30 great Savannah bands rock race day for 23,000 runners and thousands of fans and spectators," said Malain McCormick, event director for the November marathon. "It wouldn't be a Rock 'n' Roll Marathon without a post race concert, and to cap off race day by hosting Carolina Liar at the finish line stage will be a special experience for all event participants."

You may not know the name Carolina Liar, but you probably know their music. Fueled by the hit singles "I'm Not Over" and "Show Me What I'm Looking For," Carolina Liar's 2008 debut Coming to Terms became one of the year's most acclaimed releases, with the band's songs generating nationwide airplay on modern rock and alternative stations, appearing on such TV shows as The Vampire Diaries, American Idol, Gossip Girl and The Hills. Spotlighted as an iTunes Single of the Week, "Show Me What I'm Looking For" logged more than 600,000 downloads, and "I'm Not Over" shot to No. 3 on Billboard's Modern Rock Chart.

The band toured extensively in support of the first album, sharing stages with the likes of One Republic and Rob Thomas. They also performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Ellen Degeneres Show; played themselves in an episode of 90210; were spotlighted as a Rolling Stone "Breaking" artist; and featured in both MTV's "Discover & Download" and VH1's "You Oughta Know" programs. "It was a good start, but we want more," Carolina Liar singer/guitarist Chad Wolf says of his band's success as they prepare to release their new album Wild Blessed Freedom on Sept. 27. "It sounds bigger and it feels bigger."

Famous for lining race routes with live bands and cheerleaders, the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series events are synonymous with massive participant numbers and lively post race concerts.

Event organizers are looking for bands of every genre to entertain and encourage runners and walkers along the course. Music styles from salsa to reggae, R&B to alternative and classic rock to country are welcome.
