Multi-platinum band AWOLNATION have shared the official music video for the track “Seven Sticks Of Dynamite”, which is taken from the band’s third studio album Here Come The Runts out February 2nd, 2018 via Red Bull Records.

The video was directed by Riley Harper (Hollywood stunt-double for titles such as Little Miss SunshineStraight Outta ComptonSons of Anarchy etc) alongside frontman Aaron Bruno. The video was filmed at The Old Place in Agoura Hills, CA and features legendary tattoo artist Dr Woo, Rick Rubin, and Duff McKagan. Inspired by campy bar brawls in old western movies, the video centers around dueling biker and surfer gangs and, like the song the video builds to an epic climax sure to entertain.

“I’ve always wanted to make a video at The Old Place with all of my friends and showcase the spirit of old California,” says Aaron Bruno. Director Riley Harper adds, “It’s pretty awesome when you get to film a bar brawl, but when you have free reign to shoot it at your local watering hole with all of your friends, that’s just a recipe for a good time and a great outcome!”

Here Come The Runts will be available everywhere February 2nd, 2018. Fans can pre-order the album at awolnationmusic.com and receive instant downloads of “Seven Sticks Of Dynamite,” as well as “Passion“.

In support of Here Come The Runts, AWOLNATION will be embarking on a headlining tour with support from Nothing But Thieves on February 11th in Toronto, and touring the States until mid-March before crossing the pond for a European/UK run throughout the month of April.

“Grizzly Bear” is Angus and Julia’s latest track to be unveiled from their forthcoming and highly anticipated Rick Rubin produced album Angus & Julia Stone out August 1st (American Recordings/Republic Records).

The melodious and up-tempo, Fleetwood Mac-esque track was written and recorded in California and was brought to life thanks to Rubin’s ears and direction in the studio.
