To tie in with these dates, the single ‘Sail’, taken from debut ‘Megalithic Symphony’, will be released on September 19th 2011. Already a number 6 alternative rock radio smash in America, with sales approaching 300,000 in the US , and number 1 and Gold in Canada ‘Sail’ is accompanied by a video that sees AWOLNATION, who co-wrote the treatment, abducted by unseen alien forces.
“I’ve always held the British music fan’s taste to a higher standard. I’m so grateful that our music is being embraced by radio and listeners, even though we talk funny and spell color and behavior different than you do. It’s an honor to have the opportunity to come back after a sold-out show to share our songs with more people. A further testament to AWOLNATION having no borders.”
The debut album ‘Megalithic Symphony’ , released October 3rd 2011 is a bold and daring debut which references an array of genres, featuring a heady blend of electronica and infectious hooks amalgamating into a supersonic aural montage for the senses.
AWOLNATION fever has been spreading like wildfire across the US and now in the UK. With incredible shows at SXSW and various cities far and wide, fervent gig goers have been queuing around the block to be part of the frenzy. Having conquered many territories, Aaron Bruno’s outfit are back to fly the flag in the UK, and are sure to be an unstoppable force to be reckoned with!
