AWOLNATION have announced the release of their new studio album titled "Run" (Red Bull Records) on March 17, the highly anticipated follow-up to their chart-topping debut "Megalithic Symphony". AWOLNATION recently completed an official music video for "Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)" that can now be viewed just below. An extensive U.S. summer tour will announced shortly, including a stop at this year's Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, and the band will soon begin performing at select stateside festival shows after a brief European tour this spring.
Following a whirlwind two-year world tour in support of Megalithic Symphony, 2014 saw AWOLNATION withdraw into the depths of the California coastline to construct the sophomore effort. A culmination of the years following the release of the debut album, the 14-track Run, was written, performed and produced entirely by musical architect Aaron Bruno. The end result is 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. "There is not one second on the record that hasn't been thoughtfully placed," said Bruno. "Every single element serves a purpose."
Standout songs alongside the first single "Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)" include the cinematic "Jailbreak," the soaring anthem "I Am," the title track "Run," the euphoric "Windows," the painfully vulnerable "Headrest for My Soul," and the atomic rebellion of "KOOKSEVERYWHERE!!!!"
Released in 2011, the band's gold-certified debut album Megalithic Symphony was an alternative music revelation that became an astonishing success resonating with fans around the world. The album holds a number of long-running Billboard chart positions including 146 weeks on the Independent Albums chart, 111 weeks on the Billboard Top200, 105 weeks on the Top Rock Albums chart and has topped the Heatseekers Albums chart several times over.
