The new single “Not Your Fault” is set for release on February 20th, taken from the debut album Megalithic Symphony. The single is currently in the Top 20 and rising at Alternative radio in the United States.
The Tim Burton inspired video for “Not Your Fault” sees front man Aaron Bruno and his band drifting into a brilliantly bizarre animated sci-fi caper, battling a deranged abominable snow beast to dodging bullets fired from a lizard like sea-creature before being incinerated…the list goes on! The surreal animated odyssey, directed by Cameron ‘The Gatsby’ Duddy and premiered through MTV’s PUSH campaign in the United States, can be viewed HERE.
Inspired by the unique visual displays in the “Not Your Fault” video, AWOLNATION has launched Megalithic Mayhem, an online video game featuring the band members as characters and scenarios from the video as scenes in the game. Visit www.megalithicmayhem.com to play directly, or click HERE to play through Facebook. Megalithic Mayhem will also be available as an app for mobile devices in early 2012.
This has been a breakout year for AWOLNATION and their hit single “Sail”. It was certified Gold in the US while remaining in the Top 5 at Alternative radio for 5 weeks in a row, and was certified Platinum in Canada while also hitting #1 on the Canadian Modern Rock charts. In addition to selling out multiple headlining tours in the United States, AWOLNATION performed on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
A massive success story in the US, this year could very well be the time where AWOLNATION fever spreads like wildfire here.
