AWOLNATION have released the official music video for the new single I Am, now viewable online on YouTube. Making its impact at radio now, the powerfully anthemic song is currently featured in a wildly popular, nationally televised World of Red Bull campaign that has quickly amassed over 7 million views online. Coming off a string of sold out shows along the east coast, the band continues their summer Run Tour 2015 through September in support of their new album Run (released March 17 on Red Bull Records).
AWOLNATION reteamed with director Hayley Young on the concept of the I Am music video, for a continuation and elaboration on the discovery process that began with the Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf) video. This time, I Am reveals a more contemplative side of AWOLNATION, invoking introspection and reflection with the use of intriguing theatrical lighting techniques and choreography.
Recently, AWOLNATION released the new studio album, Run, notching their highest debut chart positions ever. A culmination of the years following the release of the debut album, Megalithic Symphony, the 14-track Run was written, performed and produced entirely by musical architect Aaron Bruno. The electrifying lead single from the album, Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf), exploded at alternative radio where it topped the chart for several weeks. Check out the band performing the track on both Conan and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Released in 2011, the band’s gold-certified debut album, Megalithic Symphony, was an alternative music revelation that became an astonishing success resonating with fans around the world. Their hit single Sail, a redefining global anthem, is certified 6X Platinum in the U.S., and is the second longest charting song in the Billboard Hot 100’s 55-year history amassing hundreds of millions of video views and streaming plays online while charting around the world. Following the success of Sail, the band would go on to have two more Top 10 charting alternative singles, Not Your Fault and Kill Your Heroes, having sold over a million downloads combined. Since the release of their debut, AWOLNATION has performed countless shows to millions of fans across the globe.
