AWOLNATION Announce New Album ‘Here Come The Runts’

By Scott T. Sterling

“With this record I really wanted to make a rock n’ roll/pop album,” principal Aaron Bruno explained in a press statement. “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 conceived the album in a secluded coastal mountain range in his native Southern California.

“The record definitely has a feel to it that seems parallel to the vibe of this mountain and the land,” Bruno said of the recording. “It’s like a non-GMO record. There’s no fake s— on there, none of the vocals are tuned. It’s all real playing.”

AWOLNATION will follow the album release with a world tour, kicking off in Toronto on Feb. 11. Nothing But Thieves will open the North American shows.
