The musical project of Aaron Bruno, AWOLNATION recently released their highly-anticipated studio album, Run, via Red Bull Records. Written, performed and produced entirely by Bruno, the end result is a finely-tuned musical masterwork led by the debut electric single “Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)” and the powerful anthem, “I Am,” featured in the popular, nationally televised World of Red Bull campaign. AWOLNATION released their gold-certified debut album, Megalithic Symphony, in 2011. An alternative music revelation, the album became an astonishing success, resonating with fans around the world. Their multi-platinum hit single “Sail,” a redefining global anthem, is the second-longest-charting song in the Billboard Hot 100's 55-year history, amassing hundreds of millions of video views and streaming plays online while charting worldwide.
About Highly Suspect

They have performed at festivals such as SXSW, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza. Their new album, Mister Asylum, was released in July with their first music video, “Lydia,” premiering on MTV.com.
