AWOLNATION Announce New Tour Dates

AWOLNATION has announced their first round of new U.S. tour dates for 2012, beginning January 5 in Anchorage, Alaska and highlighted by a live performance at the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado on January 28. Additional tour dates are to be announced. The band, currently on the road performing at holiday concerts and festivals throughout December, recently wrapped their sold out “Fall Harvest Tour.”

The band unveiled the new music video for their latest single “Not Your Fault” exclusively on MTV. You can now view the video online. The song has been racing up the Alternative chart, where it currently sits at #17. AWOLNATION was recently chosen as the MTV PUSH Artist of the Week, coming off a breakout year in 2011 following the release of their debut album Megalithic Symphony (Red Bull Records). They were also recently featured on MTV2’s 120 Minutes, which can be viewed here.

Paying homage to classic 60s clay-mation/stop-motion animation, the video for “Not Your Fault” is a fantasy tale told with the band battling the Abominable Snowman, a fire breathing creature from the black lagoon, and in true AWOLNATION form – aliens in outer space…but all with brass knuckles, nunchucks and ripped out beating hearts. “Not Your Fault” was directed by Cameron Duddy, who also helmed AWOLNATION’s “Sail” video, as well as Bruno Mars’ video for “The Lazy Song.”

AWOLNATION’s debut single “Sail” was recently certified Gold in the U.S., officially selling over 644,000 digital downloads of the smash hit song. “Sail” hit #1 at Alternative in Canada and was certified platinum. The song has been Top 10 at alternative radio for six months and is this year’s second most played current song at Alternative radio, where it peaked at #5.
