AWOLNATION have announced a new album called Here Come The Runts, scheduled for release on February 2nd. Current single "Passion" has been the #1 most added at US Alternative Radio and now they have released a new single called "Seven Sticks of Dynamite" which you can hear below.
Here Come The Runts will serve as the follow up to 2015's Run which included the No. 1 hit "Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)." The group mastermind Aaron Bruno has once again taken the helm as producer and writer for the album, which he has done for the other two AWOLNATION records. "With this record I really wanted to make a rock n’ roll/pop album," commented Bruno. "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 much of 2016 writing the album in his home studio in the coastal mountain range separating the Pacific Ocean and the suburbs of Los Angels where he grew up. The secluded location he placed himself in is noticeable throughout the album. "The record definitely has a feel to it that seems parallel to the vibe of this mountain and the land," Bruno noted. "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."
To support Here Come The Runts, AWOLNATION will head out on a North American tour with Nothing But Thieves beginning on February 11th in Toronto. This will be followed by a European tour in April.
