AWOLNATION 2012 European Tour

AWOLNATION 2012 European Tour

AWOLNATION continue their relentless live schedule with the announcement of further European dates for 2012.   The band are currently in Europe playing a mix of festivals and their own packed out headlining dates and have now confirmed shows in November – stepping up to larger venues to support the ongoing success of their album in Europe.

The dates include a show in London as part of the first UK Warped dates in 13 years.

The band, fronted by Aaron Bruno, have had an incredible year so far with their first single in the US. Their album ‘Megalithic Symphony’ has now surpassed  210,000 sales in the US with the single ‘Sail’ reaching number 5 at Modern Rock radio where it stayed for 5 weeks, and selling  over 1.2 million downloads to date.   The follow up track ‘Not Your Fault’ reached the No 3 spot and both tracks have now racked up over 40 million views on Youtube combined.   AWOLNATION have also performed on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live and recently played Coachella Festival where Macy Gray joined them on stage for ‘Sail’ (which she recently recorded on her album of cover versions).

‘Megalithic Symphony’ features 14 tracks covering a vast spectrum of music, combining rock and electronic music to powerful effect, managing to be both incredibly abrasive but deliciously poppy at the same time.  Musically, it’s imbued with Bruno’s incredibly ambitious aspirations, yet tempered lyrically with his modest, soul-searching outlook.   From the glorious poppy hooks of ‘Jump On My Shoulders’ through the scuzzy, grunge-meets pop sensibilities of ‘Guilty Filthy Soul’, and, of course, the gritty catchiness of ‘Sail’, it’s that combination – of a variety of genres, of feel-good choruses mixed with sad yet hopeful sentiments, of joy and nostalgia, of elation and depression and desperation – that makes this genre blending album so uniquely irresistible.  And it’s that combination that has resulted in sold out and bumped up venues on their current European tour and storming appearances at Rock im Park, Rock am Ring and Nova Rock.
