AWOLNATION Return with New Album, “Run,” in March
Electronic rock act, AWOLNATION, will finally have the opportunity to follow-up its massive 2011 offering, Megalithic Symphony, with the brand new studio album, Run.
Available through Red Bull Records on March 17, Run has been described as “a finely tuned musical masterwork that is at times, and all at once, sprawling, atmospheric, exuberant, earnest and refined with moments of a signature aggressive unease.”
All 14 tracks were written, performed and produced entirely by the group’s mastermind, Aaron Bruno.
Fans can pre-order the album (beginning January 27) through the official AWOLNATION website and subsequently receive a download of Run’s first single, Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf). A video for that track can be seen below.
“More than anything, I’m excited to have the artistic freedom and opportunity to make a sophomore record,” confided Bruno in a backstage conversation with Riffyou.com in September. “Everybody dreads the sophomore slump, whereas I am embracing it and can’t wait to either go down in flames, or take it to another level. It’s not going to be in the middle – it’ll be one way or the other. That’s how it has to be.”
AWOLNATION’s popularity has exploded over the past couple of years thanks to the tremendous success of their single, “Sail.” During its time in the sun, the song spent the second most amount of time (ever!) on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and sold millions upon millions of copies worldwide.
