Electronic and Indie rock group AWOLNATION returns to the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Saturday, March 16. AWOLNATION performed at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall for x102.9’s Third Annual Birthday Party show in March 2012.
AWOLNATION was formed by Aaron Bruno, previously of bands Insurgence, Hometown Hero and the chart-breaking group Under the Influence of Giants. Bruno created the group after receiving an opportunity in 2009 from Red Bull Records, asking if he wanted free use of their recording studio in Los Angeles, CA. He was seeking a way to combine genres and construct a creative free-for-all for himself style of music that produced an electro-pop hybrid. The Indie recording label Red Bull Records eventually signed the band, and their first EP, Back from Earth, released on iTunes in May, 2010. Aaron named the band as recognition to a nickname in high school. He stated that he “would leave without saying goodbye because it was just easier, so that’s where the name Awol came from.”
Their debut album Megalithic Symphony featured 15 tracks and released on March 15, 2011 and physically on March 29, 2011 under the label Red Bull Records. Hit singles from this album include “Sail”, “Not Your Fault”, and “Kill Your Heroes”. The first single the band released, “Sail”, peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Rock Songs chart and went on to platinum status in the US and double platinum in Canda.
