I sold my soul to AWOLNATION roughly two years ago once I saw Aaron Bruno’s music video for ”Burn It Down”. The video, which featured Sam Ronson and Willa Ford, epitomizes why VH1’s “Top 20 Countdown” and the slim amount of music videos shown on MTV should not become an extinct fad of the 80s and 90s. Developing imagery is key to popularizing a song and AWOLNATION has a knack for conveying just that.
The outfit’s latest song,”THISKIDSNOTALRIGHT” will be featured in the new video game, “Injustice: Gods Among Us”, which will be available everywhere April 16th. The video game’s soundtrack will be released digitally on the same day as well and the CD on April 23rd. If you don’t consider yourself a “video gamer” then AWOLNATION may be your ticket to understanding why your boyfriend/husband/fiancé would rather waste the day away in front of a screen. Bruno’s music can magnify the aggressive nature within anyone. So, it’s time to be lazy, sit down and let your competitive side be shown.
AWOLNATION is currently on a spring headlining tour with Blondfire and Mother Mother. Check out the tour sampler here and the tour teaser trailer here. In case you are late to the Aaron Bruno craze, you should get your copy of AWOLNATION’s debut, “Megalithic Symphony”, on iTunes now.
