– AWOLNATION has announced the dates of their upcoming Spring U.S. concert tour. The band has confirmed 30 new shows beginning in March and running through April. Blondfire will serve as the main support act on most dates with Mother Mother to open. Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 18th. All confirmed U.S. shows are listed below. Recently, the band has been in the studio working on the eagerly anticipated follow up to their debut album Megalithic Symphony (Red Bull Records) and will be performing several new songs in their live set including “This Kid’s Not Alright,” “Some Kind Of Joke???,” and “Cannibals,” alongside their platinum-certified hit “Sail,” and crowd favorites “Not Your Fault” and “Kill Your Heroes.”

 

AWOLNATION is currently prepping for their first European tour of the new year slated to kick off January 16th in Helsinki, Finland. The band will perform 23 dates overseas hitting Sweden, Norway, The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, and the United Kingdom.

 

The band capped off a banner 2012 charting three Top 10 singles from their debut album while relentlessly working on the road for more than 250 days worldwide. Highlights include their sold-out headline “Never Let Your Fear Decide Your Fate” U.S. tour, an awe-inspiring performance at The Voodoo Festival in New Orleans, as well as massive festival slots at Coachella, Rock am Ring/Rock im Park in Germany, Bumbershoot and more.  

 

AWOLNATION’s debut album Megalithic Symphony has been on the Billboard charts for 92 weeks, topping the Billboard Independent Albums chart seven separate times in 2012, having sold more than 330,000 copies. The debut smash single, “Sail” is fast approaching double platinum with nearly two million in digital sales. The track was also recently certified triple platinum in Canada – where the album is certified gold. 

 

Led by musical architect and vocalist Aaron Bruno, AWOLNATION features keyboard/guitarist Kenny Carkeet, drummer Hayden Scott and Drew Stewart on guitar. The band’s debut album Megalithic Symphony is currently available in stores and online
