AWOLNATION AT SXSW 2015 - PHOTO GALLERY BY MICHAEL MULLENIX

AWOLNATION!  Awolnation...  Wow, where has this band been?  Ladies and Gentlemen, I like presumably most of you have been going to concerts for several years now, and the best feeling I ever get from live music is seeing an act elevated.  Maybe it's a new album that shifts the paradigm of their set list.  Maybe it's the ascension to a bigger stage and the bravado that brings with it.  But sometimes maybe it's that band that takes advantage of all these elements and mature it into a radical style unto their own.

I have seen Awolnation a handful of times in the past and thought they were always an excellent alternative rock that seemed to have come up with some of the Warped Tour Crowd.  Then I saw them at The Moody Theater during SXSW.  With a new album on display this band stood tall and blew away any preconceived notions that I had ever had about them.  Their sound has evolved into something heavier, more primal, less reserved and this is a monumental force on the horizon.  Awolnation stands poised to be one of the best evolved sounds of the year, and it is my pleasure to share the sights from Texas this past month.
