'I AM ' (MIKE D REMIX)
LISTEN HERE The band's second album Run - out now
“’Bruno has moved on and made the already big and bold, bigger and bolder. ‘Run’ is the sound of a man coming to terms with his many gifts. Heroic.” – Q
AWOLNATION’s epic new track, ‘I Am’ has been giving an enthralling remix by the legendary Mike D, who exclusively told Rolling Stone "When I heard 'I Am', it had the anthemic dynamics that we associate with Awolnation. I had a different version in my head of what the song could be, so was happy to be able to manifest that.” Rolling Stone describe the remix as a track that “crests and troughs repeatedly through its four-and-a-half minutes, with each segment dramatically different than its previous part. The remix is mainly rooted in trap music, a genre Diamond admitted to being enamored with, but the former Beastie Boy, who met Awolnation's Aaron Bruno through a mutual acquaintance, also mixes in dub music's spaciousness and descending repetition with EDM's manic peaks.” The band are currently blazing a trail on tour all over the world. Fresh from a UK run that included spots at Reading & Leeds Festival, AWOLNATION also sold out a North American summer headline tour, as well as a highly successful stint in Europe. You can watch the full, captivating performance from Reading on the BBC iPlayer here. ‘I Am’, which is impacting early October, comes from the band’s second albumRun, out now. The powerfully anthemic song is currently featured in the latest World of Red Bull campaign, which is currently running across North America and Europe and has quickly amassed over 7 million views online. The album, Run, was written, performed and produced entirely by musical architect Aaron Bruno. 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 signature unease.
“Clever, calming sounds, suffused with warmth. It’s very good indeed” – Kerrang! “This is a sign of a band who are as good when staring at their shoelaces as when they’re aiming for the stars” – Rock Sound “This is yet another unstoppable worldwide monster” – Record Of The Day For more information visit AWOLNATION online: www.AWOLNATIONmusic.com
