The new album from AWOLNATION, entitled Run (Red Bull Records) was written, performed and produced entirely by musical architect Aaron Bruno. Run, which features No. 1 hit “Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)” as well as “I Am” and new single “Woman Woman” is a culmination of Bruno’s time and experiences following the release of platinum-certified debut album Megalithic Symphony. “Sail,” the chart-topping first single off Megalithic Symphony is certified 6x platinum in the US and holds the record for the most weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart by an independent artist. It is also a global success, amassing hundreds of millions of video views and streaming plays around the world. Since the release of Run, the band has played festivals like Bonnaroo and Reading & Leeds, performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, The Late Late Show and Late Night with Seth Meyers and they were nominated for an iHeartRadio Music Award for ‘Alternative Rock Artist of the Year’ alongside Foo Fighters and Muse. They most recently toured arenas with Fall Out Boy and will be headlining US shows all summer.
