ABOUT AWOLNATION:
Since its formation by multi-talented musician and songwriter Aaron Bruno in 2010, AWOLNATION has redefined alternative music. With multiple radio hits at the alternative format, including 8 Top Fives and 2 Number Ones, the act has inarguably already made a permanent mark, not just in their genre, but across modern music. Most notably, the chart-topping, record-breaking, diamond-certified track “Sail” created a reference soundscape for a myriad of hits in the last decade. That song launched a career that already spans four albums. Megalithic Symphony, the platinum debut LP that also produced the gold certified “Not Your Fault” and two other Top 10 US singles. Sophomore album Run arrived in 2015, and the follow-up, Here Come The Runts, came in 2018. Then entering a creative partnership with current label Better Noise music, the band’s fourth full-length album, ANGEL MINERS & THE LIGHTNING RIDERS, featuring the hit single “The Best,” was released on April 24, 2020, and features collaborations with Rivers Cuomo of Weezer and Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros. In their positive review of the project, AllMusic calls it, “an energetic, fun, and compulsively listenable set that distills the best of what AWOLNATION can do: making pop-savvy, dance-friendly, alternative rock anthems that are not bound to traditional genre conventions.”

That boundary breaking of genres continued in Bruno’s creative calling, even more so as the world shut down in 2020. While quarantining, Bruno had the idea to celebrate music unapologetically with a team of talented friends – new and old. The result is the upcoming album My Echo, My Shadow, My Covers and Me, a collection of unexpected yet passionately crafted covers and collaborations. Launched with the first single in January 2022, a powerful rendition of “Winds of Change,” featuring Portugal the Man and Brandon Boyd of Incubus, the project offers a sonic experience that takes listeners inward on a retrospective journey and outward on a collective celebration. The homage paid to each song’s original artist is just as fun to dive into as the mutual respect heard in every note from both AWOLNATION and guests.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I’ve got to admit that my background is very limited when it comes to AWOLNATION but I have enjoyed the few things I’ve heard and I would definitely consider catching them in concert if my schedule is open and the meand to do proper reporting is there. What about you folks out there in the readership? Are you ahead of the rest of us with this band? What have I been missing all this time? I’d love to learn more from the folks who’ve been schooled in their sound. You can chime in down below in the comments section and that will wrap it up for me. See you next time please stay safe out there.

From Ashes To New Announces Headlining Dates

Hey Fiends, we are back once more with another touring announcement and this one features the guys in From Ashes To New. Take a look and please do so from the comfort of your air-conditioned home or office since its brutally hot and humid out there. Well, it is in NYC at least which is where we hang our media hat. I made the mistake of heading out on some errands and I couldn’t wait to get back home.

The Press Release:
Today, From Ashes to New have announced headlining tour dates, adding to their extensive fall schedule. The 16-date headline run will feature support from Badflower, Dead Girls Academy, and Killakoi. Pre-sale tickets with VIP packages are available now at FATN.soundrink.com.

The story of From Ashes to New is truly that of pursuing a dream regardless of the obstacles that may arise. The band’s debut album Day One earned the band a Top 10 track at Active Rock radio with the single “Through It All”. Following an extensive album cycle, the band’s original drummer and co-vocalist both abruptly left the band. Rather than focusing on the setbacks, From Ashes to New forged ahead with a new energy and purpose. The Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based band, now comprised of frontman/rapper/programmer Matt Brandyberry, guitarist Lance Dowdle, vocalist Danny Case, and drummer Mat Madiro (Trivium) released their sophomore album, The Future earlier this year. The lead single, “Crazy” has seen the band return to the top of the Active Rock radio charts, where it currently is holding the #2 position.
