AWOLNATION release Megalithic Mayhem game for free on iTunes app store

AWOLNATION has once again embraced cutting edge technology by releasing the innovative app for their new comic, action video game Megalithic Mayhem, designed for both iPhone and iPad. The game, inspired by the group’s surreal, animated music video for their latest top 5 hit single, “Not Your Fault,” is free and now available for download exclusively through iTunes App Store: http://bit.ly/y5cEpw. The Megalithic Mayhem game is also available on the web at www.MegalithicMayhem.com and as a Facebook app at http://apps.facebook.com/megalithicmayhem.

Megalithic Mayhem, the band’s latest creative endeavor, stars the characters (actually band members) of AWOLNATION battling the creatures featured in their latest video for the single “Not Your Fault.” Three different interactive scenes include the Arctic battling the abominable yeti, bomb throwing penguins and samurai snowmen, on the beach fighting reptilian creatures from the black lagoon, and on the moon pitted against aliens and spaceships.

Gamers can choose to play as the loveable characters “Aaron” with his unique powers of vocals and lightning, or “Dave” with his powers of bass and bat. As you advance to higher levels in the game, players will receive codes to unlock and activate other character members of the band: keyboardist/guitarist “Kenny,” drummer “Hayden” and guitarist “Christopher,” each with their own unique weapons and special attacks.

AWOLNATION recently announced a string of tour dates in the U.S. Pacific Northwest and Canada this April leading up to the band’s performance at one of the premiere music festivals, the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, California April 14 and 21.

“Not Your Fault,” now the band’s second consecutive top 5 single, is one of the hottest songs at radio in North America and currently #4 on the charts at Alternative in the U.S. and Canada. Meanwhile, the band’s debut single “Sail” is nearing platinum sales in the U.S. and double platinum in Canada.

Performing hundreds of live shows throughout a breakout year, the band’s debut full-length release Megalithic Symphony (Red Bull Records) was the #1 Billboard Heatseekers album of 2011 topping the chart several times over. Featured on iTunes as one of the “Great Albums of 2011,” as well as Amazon’s “Top 100 Albums of 2011,” Megalithic Symphony is currently available in stores and online.
