AWOLNATION unveil details of new album and release new video

2015-01-27 11:38

Cape Town - AWOLNATION have announced the release of their new studio album titled Run on 17 March, 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 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."

The band released a video for their very first single, Hollow Moon on Monday.
