AWOLNATION have announced the release of their new studio album titled Run (Red Bull Records) on March 16th, the highly anticipated follow-up to their worldwide smash hit debut Megalithic Symphony.

They also recently completed an official music video for “Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)”

The band will be playing live in London at the Electric Ballroom on April 1st as part of a short European tour this spring, with an extensive U.S. summer tour to be announced shortly, including a stop at this year’s Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. A current itinerary is listed below.

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.”

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!!!!”

Released in 2011, the band’s US gold-certified debut album Megalithic Symphony was an alternative music revelation that became an astonishing success resonating with fans around the world. The album holds a number of long-running Billboard chart positions including 146 weeks on the Independent Albums chart, 111 weeks on the Billboard Top 200, 105 weeks on the Top Rock Albums chart and has topped the Heatseekers Albums chart 8 separate times.

Their hit single “Sail,” a redefining global anthem, is certified 6x platinum in the U.S. and is the second longest charting song in the Billboard Hot 100’s 55-year history. It has amassed hundreds of millions of video views and streaming plays online, topping Billboard’s Rock Streaming Songs chart in 2014 and charting around the world: it is certified 10x platinum in Norway, 6x platinum in Canada, 3x platinum in Sweden, 2x platinum in Australia and New Zealand, platinum in Switzerland, gold in Austria, Germany and the UK – spending 24 weeks on the UK charts.

Since the release of their debut album, AWOLNATION has performed countless shows to millions of fans across the globe, including selling out Shepherds Bush Empire in 2014.
