AWOLNATION Single “Sail” Goes Gold

The AWOLNATION single “Sail” from their debut album Megalithic Symphony (Red Bull Records) has been certified Gold, officially selling over 500,000 digital downloads of the smash hit song. The band will be the musical guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno this Friday, October 28, to perform the soaring track. Recently, AWOLNATION taped a live set for Fuel TV’s “The Daily Habit” performing “Sail” (airing Thursday, October 27) and “Not Your Fault” (airing Friday, October 28). Immediately following those televised appearances, the band will kick off the “AWOLNATION Fall Harvest Tour” on November 2, a 15-date outing with Middle Class Rut and Twin Atlantic supporting. Heading coast-to-coast with shows in Los Angeles at the Music Box on November 3 and New York’s Webster Hall on November 21, the band will be working with local community food banks to establish a food drive at each show, benefiting area families in need.

Returning to the States after a sold-out Canadian headline run, a crowd rousing set at DeLuna Fest and supporting Incubus on several dates, the band’s debut album Megalithic Symphony continues its 31-week run on the Billboard charts, topping both the Heatseekers Album and Alternative New Artists charts, as well as taking over the IHeartRadio alternative chart holding the #1 (“Not Your Fault”), #3 (“Sail”), #6 (“Burn It Down”), and #8 (“People”) positions.

The band’s runaway radio juggernaut “Sail” has been dominating the Alternative Songs charts for 37 weeks straight, peaking at #5, and is currently climbing the Active Rock chart. “Sail” hit #1 in Canada and was recently certified platinum. The track was recently featured in promos for the current season of the FOX television drama House. The band’s debut album Megalithic Symphony, featured on iTunes as one of the “Great Albums of 2011,” is currently available at retailers everywhere and online.

Led by musical architect and vocalist Aaron Bruno, AWOLNATION features David Amezcua on bass, keyboardist/guitarist Kenny Carkeet, drummer Hayden Scott and Christopher Thorn on guitar.
