February 24, 2016 – AWOLNATION has released the video for their new single WOMAN WOMAN’. The Marc Klasfeld (Foo Fighters, Jay-Z, Red Hot Chili Peppers)-directed clip premiered via The Late Late Show with James Corden this week in advance of the band’s performance on the show last night of which you can see HERE.

Aaron Bruno, the musical architect behind AWOLNATION, worked closely with Klasfeld on a video that exemplified the track’s themes. “I was excited to be able to work with Marc on this” says Bruno. “Right away he understood the song and that I wanted to create something lighthearted, energetic and authentic featuring women in their natural state, and I think that really comes through in the video.” “It’s a celebration” Klasfeld adds about the music video, which was cast with all actual musicians.  “A hymn to all women. We didn’t add any makeup, we didn’t use any big styling elements, obviously we didn’t use any clothes…”

Taken from the album ‘RUN’, ‘WOMAN WOMAN’ follows on from their massive worldwide hit single ‘SAIL’ which is now certified: 10 x Platinum in Norway, 6 x Platinum in USA and Canada, 5 x Platinum in Sweden, 2 x Platinum in Australia and New Zealand, Platinum in Switzerland and Gold in UK, Germany and Austria. The track was also longest-charting song by an independent artist in Billboard Hot 100 history, amassing hundreds of millions of video views and streaming plays online globally.

Since the release of ‘RUN’, the band has played festivals such as the UK’s Reading & Leeds and the US’ Bonaroo, performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan and Late Night with Seth Meyers and they are nominated for the US National Radio Network, iHeartRadio’s Music Award for ‘Alternative Rock Artist of the Year’ alongside Foo Fighters and Muse.

On February 26th, AWOLNATION will join Fall Out Boy on a North American arena tour. The month long string of dates kicks off in Hollywood, FL and runs through March 27th in San Francisco, CA.

+ New single “I AM” Out July 10th

“There are slabs of industrial noise, electro-pop and even boybands, and when it works its like nothing on earth” – The Irish Daily Star ****

“RUN is a demented, delirious pop rock delight” Renowned for Sound

“It’s funky and bouncy and the energy put into it seeps out” The Independent

AWOLNATION recently 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, the 14-track Run, was written, performed and produced entirely by musical architect Aaron Bruno. The first single from the album “Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)” exploded at alternative radio where it topped the chart for several weeks and seen live performances on Hit Tv shows in USA- Conan and Jimmy Kimmel Live. The New single “I Am” was synced in an International televised World of Red Bull campaign and is out in Ireland on July 10th.

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.

Following a whirlwind two-year world tour in support of Megalithic Symphony, 2014 saw AWOLNATION withdraw into the depths of the California coastline to construct the sophomore effort. The end result is a finely tuned musical masterwork that is at times, and all at once, sprawling, atmospheric, exuberant, earnest and refined with moments of a signature aggressive unease. “There is not one second on the record that hasn’t been thoughtfully placed,” said Bruno. “Every single element serves a purpose.” Standout songs alongside the first single “Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)” include the cinematic “Jailbreak,” the soaring anthem “I Am,” the title track “Run,” the euphoric “Windows,” the painfully vulnerable “Headrest for My Soul,” and the atomic rebellion of “KOOKSEVERYWHERE!!!!”

In 2014 AWOLNATION remained prominent on numerous Billboard Year End charts closing out the year on Rock Streaming Songs Artists #4, Rock Digital Songs Artists #10, Hot Rock Songs Artists #14, Top Rock Artists #17, Independent Albums #40, and several more. Since the release of their debut album, AWOLNATION has performed countless shows to millions of fans across the globe, including Coachella, Voodoo Festival, Austin City Limits, Osheaga, Brazil’s Mix FM Fest and Austria’s Frequency Festival.

O’Neill launches new global brand campaign “UNREASONABLE” featuring music from the new AWOLNATION album RUN

O’Neill, the legendary surf company founded by Jack O’Neill in Santa Cruz, California, launches their new global brand campaign, “UNREASONABLE expectations since 1952.” The global campaign highlights O’Neill’s long-lasting commitment to delivering above and beyond what would be considered reasonable by anyone’s standards. “Our company was founded by bringing the very best product into the market”, said Willem Haitink, O’Neill’s Chief Executive Officer. “From inventing the first wetsuit to the creation of the first surf shop and board leash, we have a storied history of delivering product to consumers and world-class athletes that exceeds all expectations.”

The brand campaign not only highlights the UNREASONABLE nature of O’Neill’s athletes and products, but also celebrates the youth of today. “Today’s young adults don’t define themselves as just surfers, skiers or snowboarders anymore. They are interested in experiencing all that the world has to offer. They want it all and they want it now, which is totally UNREASONABLE in the very best sense of the word”, said Doug Perkul, Chief Marketing Officer for O’Neill.

The campaign kicks off today with the launch of the brand’s manifesto. To set the musical landscape of the video manifesto for UNREASONABLE, O’Neill partnered with alt-rock phenom AWOLNATION to feature the cinematic, title track “Run” from the upcoming new album due March 17 via Red Bull Records. “We are all massive fans of AWOLNATION and when we heard that Aaron was down for working with us on this project, we were beyond ecstatic. Not only does the band have the right sound for our manifesto, but Aaron is also a surfer and totally understands our ethos and way of life,” said Doug Perkul.

“Surfing and music go hand in hand. They are instinctual, rhythmic, happy, sad, heavy, soft, disappointing,
rewarding, humbling, devastating, and glorious on any given day,” said Aaron Bruno lead singer of AWOLNATION.
“Only a surfer can understand the true spiritual soul cleansing of a barrel. Whenever we are out on the road, playing
shows in front of thousands of people, I can’t help but sometimes wonder what tubes I may be missing back home.”
The video manifesto will be followed by videos featuring O’Neill’s top athletes within the worlds of surf and snow.
The campaign will culminate with the “UNREASONABLE” film festival, a chance for top filmmakers such as
Sundance Film Festival Award Winner, Stefan Nadelman to re-imagine the modern action sports film through the
