The AWOLNATION single Sail from their debut album Megalithic Symphony (Red Bull Records) has gone Double Platinum in Canada, officially selling over 140,000 digital downloads of the hit song. Sail also recently reached platinum in the U.S. with digital sales of more than 1,000,000.  To celebrate, for a limited time, the band and Red Bull Records is offering the song as a free download and hosting a contest to win one of 10 official platinum plaques, individually personalized with each winner’s name.  To download the track and enter to win fans should visit Facebook here or www.RedBullRecords.com.

Starting at just one station in Austin, TX, Sail grew organically station-by-station to become the artist development story of the year.  Reaction from listeners was immediate and requests flooded into stations.  This reaction inspired placement in television shows, advertisements and numerous fan-generated videos online including Jeb Corliss’ “Grinding The Crack,” garnering multi-millions of views.

The band's runaway radio hit then spent 12 weeks in the top 5 at U.S. Alternative radio where it was on the charts for 47 weeks straight, and it continues its run at both Modern and Active Rock radio.  This success drove the band’s debut album, Megalithic Symphony, to become the #1 Billboard Heatseeker Album of 2011, a chart where it spent 33 weeks in the top 10 including topping that chart 7 times.  In Canada, the single hit #1 at Alternative Radio.

Not Your Fault, AWOLNATION’s second consecutive top 5 single, is currently one of the hottest songs at Alternative radio in North America hitting the #3 spot on Modern Rock charts.  To accompany the single, the band have also released Megalithic Mayhem, a free video game app, for iPhone, iPad and Android devices. The game, inspired by the group’s surreal, animated music video for Not Your Fault, is also available on the web at www.MegalithicMayhem.com and as a Facebook app.  A trailer for the game can be seen here.

AWOLNATION is gearing up to hit the road again and will kick off their Spring tour in Canada this weekend (details below), followed by a return Stateside for a run of shows in the Pacific Northwest before performing at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival Saturday, April 14 and 21 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA.
