AWOLNation has announced the release of its third studio album, titled Here Come The Runts. The LP will arrive on February 2nd, 2018, and has been preceded by the first single, "Passion," which is currently Number 14 on the Modern Rock radio charts. A second tune called "Seven Sticks Of Dynamite" is now streaming online as well.
Here Come The Runts will follow up 2015's Run, which featured the chart-topping "Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)" as well as the Top 10 tracks "I Am" and "Woman Woman." The band's 2011 debut, Megalithic Symphony, contained the Top Five alternative hit "Sail."
- AWOLNation main man Aaron Bruno said about the new disc, "With this record I really wanted to make a rock 'n’ roll/pop album. 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 wrote and recorded the album over the course of the past year at his home studio near the Pacific Ocean.
