On the single Aaron Bruno says:
“I’ve always held the British music fan’s taste to a higher standard. I’m so grateful that our music is being embraced by radio and listeners, even though we talk funny and spell color and behavior different than you do. It’s an honor to have the opportunity to come back after a sold-out show to share our songs with more people. A further testament to AWOLNATION having no borders.”
AWOLNATION fever has been spreading like wildfire across the US and now in the UK. The album is currently climbing the Billboard album charts, topping the Billboard alternative new artist chart at Number 1 and getting to Number 9 on Mediabase alternative rock charts. With incredible shows at SXSW and various cities far and wide, fervent gig goers have been queuing around the block to be part of the frenzy. Having conquered many territories, Aaron Bruno’s outfit are back to fly the flag in the UK, and are sure to be an unstoppable force to be reckoned with!
