We at AWOLNATION Builders are here to bring you everything you need to know about this new album and keep you up to date on some of the things you may have missed and any new information that may develop in the coming weeks.
There WILL Be A New Album Sometime Soon !!!
Talk of a new album first hit fans’ ears late last year whilst AWOLNATION were closing out an electrifying 2016. Aaron, under the AWOLNATION instagram banner, posted a photo of himself with his dog Bille. With this photo came a caption of “Let’s record some new songs, Billie !!!” and a hashtag of “#newbeginnings.” We can only assume that work on this third album started around the end of the Prophets of Rage tour in late October and early November 2016, but could have possibly begun well before that.
While we understand inspiration is found any and everywhere, Aaron seems to enjoy sharing where he has gotten his ideas from this time around. A series of pictures posted to Instagram in November 2016 show signs advertising the sale of various different fruits with the captions “Hey Mister, there’s no shortage of song ideas here” and “California dreaming of fresh new songs.” Both posts came accompanied with the hashtag “#recording”.
Since this interview, most of the pictures added to AWOLNATION’s instagram of the band in the studio feature a guitar in at least one of the band members hands.
Those familiar with AWOLNATION know that Aaron Bruno is the mastermind behind the first two AWOL albums writing, playing, and recording almost everything on them. But, it appears that this album's writing process may conjure up a fresh sound the likes of which we AWOLNATION fans may or may not be familiar with.
Asked by Milwaukee's 102.1 FM in December 2016 if he had been writing songs, Aaron gave some insight on what we may expect from AWOLNATION’s third album: “I think on the next record I’m going to incorporate the other members a lot more because I feel like we are finally in a very strong place where people will come to see us live and they walk away talking about it. And I would love to capture that on the next record as best I can.”
Stay tuned for updates as they happen!
