Serving as a follow up to the platinum-certified debut album Megalithic Symphony, and 2015’sRun, which included No. 1 hit “Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)” as well as Top 5 tracks “I Am” and “Woman Woman,” AWOLNATION’s third undertaking sees Aaron Bruno once again at the helm producing, writing and recording. “With this record I really wanted to make a rock n’ roll/pop album.” says Bruno. “And I say ‘pop’ how I grew up listening to it, in the sense of Dire Straits orBorn In The U.S.A or The Cars or Tom Petty.”
Bruno spent 2016 crafting the album in his home studio nestled in the coastal mountain range separating the Pacific Ocean and the suburbs of Los Angeles where he grew up. The secluded location is reflected throughout the album. “The record definitely has a feel to it that seems parallel to the vibe of this mountain and the land,” Bruno notes. “It’s like a non-GMO record. There’s no fake shit on there, none of the vocals are tuned. It’s all real playing.”
In support of Here Come The Runts, AWOLNATION will be embarking on a headlining tour with support from Nothing But Thieves (US only) on February 11th in Toronto, and touring the States until mid-March before crossing the pond for a European/UK run throughout the month of April. A full list of dates can be found below. Tickets go on sale on Friday.
Multi-platinum artist AWOLNATION is pleased to share a much anticipated brand new song, and first single ‘Passion’ off the soon-to-be-announced third studio album.
“When all else is taken away, as long as your passion remains, anything is still possible,” says singer, songwriter and producer Aaron Bruno. “‘Passion’ is about finding the balance that can lift both you and those around you to make the world a more positive place. It doesn’t matter what names or labels people throw at you.”
