EDITORS’ NOTES

Aaron Bruno’s tireless curiosity for new sounds makes AWOLNATION’s second album just as gleefully and thrillingly unpredictable as its predecessor. Dance beats and buzzing synths meet the grand arrangements of ‘70s prog rock, and shouted choruses give way to vocal harmonies reminiscent of Queen's and The Beach Boys'. “Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)” converts sleek synth-pop into a towering wall of sound, and the rousing “I Am” is a defiant statement of purpose, while the moody, industrial-tinged “Run” burrows deep into the darkest corners of the subconscious.

It's about time!

Recoomebvghhvxsshvcdg;,

They are long overdue on new material, and this already sounds epic. I'm so excited for one of my favorite bands to release their next album.

It was a let down

Texan invasion,

As a HUGE fan of the first album, this was a huge let-down, maybe some will like it but as someone who has been waiting a long time for this I was disappointed by how tame the music was. It wasn't exciting, it didnt keep you guessing, and it wasn't what made me fall in love with AWOLNATION in the first place, and trust me no one is more disappointed than me that I had to write this review

About AWOLNATION

A solo project of Aaron Bruno, AWOLNATION began as a creative outlet for the songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Bruno, who had been a member of Home Town Hero and Under the Influence of Giants, needed a break from the collaborative process and hoped to find a place for some of his songs that didn't fit with his other bands. With AWOLNATION, Bruno built a kind of creative free-for-all for himself, allowing him to mix genres as he wanted in a style reminiscent of Beck, blending live instrumentation, electronic elements, and slick production into an electro-pop hybrid drawing from the whole of pop music.

In 2011, AWOLNATION made its full-length debut, releasing Megalithic Symphony on Red Bull Records. The album went platinum in the United States and double platinum in Canada, largely on the strength of the hit single "Sail." The following year saw the release of the EP I've Been Dreaming, which the band made available as a free download via their website, and in January 2015, the group dropped "Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)," the first single from their sophomore long-player Run, which was released later that spring. That same year the band landed a hit with a cover of Bruce Springsteen's "I'm on Fire," which appeared on the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack. ~ Gregory Heaney
