Local Death Metal Band Played For Runners At A Marathon And It Ruled

Leprosy is your new favorite band.

Runner DM

Running a marathon is tough. Pittsburgh death metal band Leprosy is here to give you the energy to make it through. Or at least they were at the recent Pittsburgh Marathon, as captured by local journalist Stephanie Strasburg. Watch along as vocalist PJ Colligan screams his lungs out at runners, one of which actually gives him a high five. Above all, it looks like the dude is having a blast doing what he's doing, and hey – free publicity.

"When people ask me why I love Pittsburgh I will refer them to this video of a local death metal band (Leprosy) playing for the ⁦Pittsburgh Marathon⁩ between thunderstorms after getting flooded out of their planned marathon spot by a clogged sewer drain," said Strasburg.

Check out Leprosy's latest single "Impulse To Kill" below. Better yet, Colligan also got a shout out in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette with a photo.

"Greetings my metal family!" said the band last week, prior to the marathong. "We here at Leprosy HQ care about our community, the wellbeing of our people & of course our livestock! We were thinking "how can we motivate health & exercise with a BOAT LOAD OF METAL in our beloved town!!,.. After much brainstorming we decided what would be better than to perform our family friendly metal favorites at the 2022 PITTSBURGH MARATHON – Sun 05/01/2022!

"You heard right.. We will be there cranking our healthy motivational tunes from 7am to 12pm at the corner of Frankstown Ave & Lincoln Ave, Mile marker 19. So swing on by or run whatever the case may say BREEEEE…See ya there!"
