AWOLNATION have announced the release of their new studio album titled Run. Released in Australia & New Zealand on March 20 via Red Bull Records, Run is the highly anticipated follow-up to their chart-topping debut Megalithic Symphony.
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 their sophomore release. A culmination of the years following the release of their debut album, the 14-track Run was written, performed and produced entirely by AWOLNATION’s frontman and 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!!!!”
RUN is released March 20, 2015 (Red Bull Records)
