Red Bull Records Scores First #1 Single With AWOLNATION’s “Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)”
Red Bull Records has earned its first #1 hit. AWOLNATION’s “Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)” has risen to the top slot on the Mediabase Alternative Chart twelve weeks after its debut. “Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)” is the first single off the LA band’s new album Run, released last month. Run debuted at #9 on the Billboard Sales chart and #17 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, with over 30k sold first week. Written, performed and produced by musical architect Aaron Bruno, Run is the follow-up to gold-certified debut album Megalithic Symphony. “Sail,” the chart-topping, record-breaking first single off Megalithic Symphony is 6x platinum in the US, with multi-platinum certifications around the globe. It holds the record for the most weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart by an independent artist, the second longest for any artist.
“Aaron Bruno is a rare talent and “Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)” truly stands out from other songs at Alternative radio,” says Red Bull Records Managing Director Greg Hammer. “Since the release of “Sail” in 2011, our team has worked tirelessly on AWOLNATION and we are thrilled that our patience and commitment to artist development has paid off. It is a great achievement for both artist and label.” AWOLNATION will play several US festival shows over the next month before beginning a North American headline tour on May 27th, and their song “I Am” is currently featured in the new World of Red Bull commercial, which premiered last week.
