Serving as a follow-up to the platinum-certified debut album Megalithic Symphony, and 2015’s Run, included No. 1 hit “Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)” as well as “I Am” and “Woman Woman.”
AWOLNATION’s third undertaking features Aaron Bruno once again at the helm producing, writing and recording.
Aaron Bruno of AWOLNATION Talks Pop
“With this record I really wanted to make a rock n’ roll/pop album,” Bruno said. “And I say ‘pop’ how I grew up listening to it, in the sense of Dire Straits or Born 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.
Bruno is accompanied on the record by drummer Isaac Carpenter, lead guitarist Zach Irons and keyboardist and programmer Daniel Saslow.
“The record definitely has a feel to it that seems parallel to the vibe of this mountain and the land,” Bruno said. “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 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.
