Turf War's 'Born To Run Free' featured by Converse, older number on 'Shameless'

Turf War has been getting plenty of multimedia attention this week as a cut from their forthcoming EP is Converse Rubber Tracks' track of the week, while an older song was featured Sunday night on a Showtime original series.

"Born to Run Free" is a cut off the band's forthcoming The Great Escape EP, and the song has an upbeat Americana sound that matches its presumably Springsteen-influenced title. The EP was recorded in January at Converse's Rubber Tracks studio in Brooklyn. A free download of the song is available on Converse's Facebook page. Also, downloaders can check out the band's covers EP. It features the band's take on songs by Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs, Waylon Jennings, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Jay Reatard.

This isn't the first widespread media attention the band has received this week, as an episode of the Showtime series "Shameless" that debuted Sunday night featured "Cheers for the Years," a track from their 2011 debut album, Years of Living Dangerously.
