Here Come The Runts (Awaiting Repress)Multi-platinum artist AWOLNATION's third studio album 'Here Come The Runts' has been released by Red Bull Records.
"When all else is taken away, as long as your passion remains, anything is still possible," says singer, songwriter and producer Aaron Bruno. "'Passion' is about finding the balance that can lift both you and those around you to make the world a more positive place. It doesn't matter what names or labels people throw at you."
Serving as a follow up to the platinum-certified debut album Megalithic Symphony, and 2015's Run, which included No. 1 hit "Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)" as well as Top 5 tracks "I Am" and "Woman Woman," AWOLNATION's third undertaking sees Aaron Bruno once again at the helm producing, writing and recording. "With this record I really wanted to make a rock n' roll/pop album." says 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 2016 crafting the album in his home studio nestled in the coastal mountain range separating the Pacific Ocean and the suburbs of Los Angeles where he grew up. The secluded location is reflected throughout the album. "The record definitely has a feel to it that seems parallel to the vibe of this mountain and the land," Bruno notes. "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."
With the albums he grew up listening to as a sort of goal post, Bruno set out to create his version of an all-American rock n' roll album; 2017, AWOLNATION style. "I wanted to make an album that felt like the dream of America that isn't necessarily true, certainly not as much as it once was. Or maybe it never has been but the idea of when you listen you just feel this nostalgic sentiment of a high school reunion, or that girl you fell in love with that you never got to talk to in junior high The feeling of unity and anthemic songs. The spirit of what I thought Born In The U.S.A was is what inspired this record in a lot of ways."1. Here Come the Runts

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!!!!1. Run

Distraction"The newest hardest-working band in New York might just be one of the best"
...a pitch-perfect pairing of post-punk and indie rock.
Brooklyn-based four piece Bear Hands announce the release of their anticipated sophomore album
Distraction on Cantora Records. "Giants," the simultaneously whiplash-inducing and silkily-grooving debut single off Distraction,was released at the tail end of last year and quickly embraced at radio across the country with spins from tastemakers such as SiriusXM's AltNation, KKDO, KRBZ, KROX, WWCD, WBRU, WBUZ, WXXJ and WHFS. "Giants" is available now digitally in the US and Canada on iTunes and Amazon, and can be posted via their official lyric video HERE, as well as on SoundCloud HERE.
This winter, Bear Hands will join forces with fellow Brooklynites Miniature Tigers for a co-headlining tour, with support from Total Slacker. The jaunt begins on February 27th at Rough Trade in Brooklyn and wraps up on March 20th at the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor. Additionally, the band will play South By Southwest in Austin in support of Distraction, with specific showcases to be announced soon. Full tour dates are below.
With Distraction, Bear Hands have shrugged off the notion of second album jitters to create an expansive sound that grew over three long years and thousands of miles on the road. Produced by guitarist Ted Feldman and mixed by James Brown (Nine Inch Nails, Arctic Monkeys, Foo Fighters), Distraction is a violently self-assured record which sees the quartet of Dylan Rau, TJ Orscher, Val Loper and Feldman distilling their anxieties and pleasures alike into perfectly twisted pop nuggets.
After releasing their debut LP Burning Bush Supper Club, Bear Hands criss-crossed America opening for the legendary GZA, Passion Pit, and AWOLNATION only to return home to Brooklyn and be distracted by the minutia of modern life and shallow urbanity. While avoiding each other for months, the band frittered away its time with help from the internet, serial monogamy, and recreational drugs.
Fortunately, this distance allowed the band to approach Distraction with a revolutionary new perspective. Their minds expanding and hearts imploding, Bear Hands set about matching new songs to familiar soundscapes. From the propulsive, infectious rhythms of "Giants" and the angular, warped melodies of "Bone Digger" to the widescreen sweep of "Thought Wrong," Distraction demands your attention - calling out for love from behind a mask of ones and zeroes, cardboard and vinyl.

Occult Classic180 Gram Clear Vinyl
The 'OCCULT CLASSIC' LP opens with the Rock City and
AWOLNATION featured "Kill It 4 the Kids" single, whose
whirlwind of lighters-up metal, signature bass growls and
festival sized synthwork make up one of the release's many
style hopping switch ups; including the Youtube flavored
Baltimore Club of the "Dolphin on Wheels" collaboration with
Dillon Francis, the rowdy dubstep-meets-drum & bass head
banger, "Spitfire Riddim" with Madsonik, and the razor sharp
bassline-backed electro thump of "Louder" with Tommy
At times, the album feels like a snapshot of his adrenaline
fueled live sets, which he's performed from some of the
most iconic stages in the world (Coachella, Lollapalooza,
EDC Las Vegas, Holy Ship! and the Mad Decent Block
Party). In the midst of touring and working on music over
the last few years, Kill the Noise has also received MTV
Clubland's Music Video pick of the year twice (2012,
2013), he's collaborated on official releases with Skrillex,
Korn, Passion Pit, and Flux Pavilion, and he co-wrote and
