AWOLNATION are an American electronic rock outfit hailing from Los Angeles, California. The band formed in just 2009, after Red Bull Records granted frontman and songwriter Aaron Bruno - formerly of Hometown Hero and Under the Influence of Giants - free use of their studio.
As soon as they’d come together, the band almost instantly shot to international recognition, and launched their first EP ‘Back From Earth’ less than a year later. Soon after, their debut album quickly came into fruition too.
That album - ‘Megalithic Symphony’ - hit shelves in March 2011, and topped the US Heatseekers chart, going on to peak at #87 in the US Albums chart. Sail, the first and without doubt most popular single from the album, helped AWOLNATION pick up thousands of fans across the world, and has since certified platinum in the US (and 2x platinum in Canada!).
AWOLNATION are a brilliant live act, and the shows they've put on since their birth have always sold incredibly well and found much acclaim - they've been booked across all four corners of the globe and have impressed at every destination.
AWOLNATION will head to London and Dublin in 2018 as part of a wider European tour supporting the forthcoming latest album 'Here Come The Runts'. It's their first material since 2015's 'Run', and you can catch them play songs new and old live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
On 'Here Come The Runts', Awolnation’s third full album, Aaron Bruno’s ever-changing band of miscreants have leaned into powerful dirges that offer up spiky vocals alongside noisy riffs and textural switcheroos. It’s a fine turn from a band who typify a certain brand of metropolitan West Coast rock.
