REVIEW: AWOLNATION’s Limited Edition Deluxe release of Megalithic Symphony out November 19th

On October 29, 2013, AWOLNATION announced they will release a newly expanded 2-CD Limited Edition Deluxe package of their blockbuster debut album Megalithic Symphony on November 19, 2013 via Red Bull Records. The Megalithic Symphony Limited Edition Deluxe package features 32-tracks and couples the original studio album on disc one, with disc two containing rarities like the latest single THISKIDSNOTALRIGHT, Some Kind of Joke and Everybody’s Got A Secret; b-sides including I’ve Been Dreaming and fan-favorite MF; live tracks; and remixes by the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Borgore, Dan The Automator and Robert DeLong. The special boxed set bundle also includes an official AWOLNATION jacket patch as well as a limited edition AWOLNATION surf wax comb. Pre-orders for the package are now being taken at: http://smarturl.it/awoldeluxephysical and at iTunes.

For any AWOLNATION fan, this newly released material will most certainly be worth a listen. It seems like every time you turn around, you hear Sail playing from just about everywhere. Fittingly, there are 5 remixes of Sail tailing the end of this reissue. Notably, there is a Sail remix from Dan the Automator (Gorillas, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Dr, Octagon) who has also recently released a new album as half of the Underground Hip-Hop duo Deltron 3030. Also, it seems like you can’t swing a dead cat around without hitting a Kendrick Lamar reference, so it comes as no surprise that he makes an appearance on one of the remixes as well. For those of a Dubstep tendency, the final remix on this album, the Unlimited Gravity Mix, should resonate fairly well.

Additionally the three new tracks kicking off Disc 2, THISKIDSNOTALRIGHT, Some Kind of Joke and Everybody’s Got A Secret are also worth a listen. The opener, THISKIDSNOTALRIGHT, is a solid upbeat track that fits right into the musical wheelhouse the boys from LA established on their first album. Next, Some Kind Of Joke brings the band into electro pop rock waters that sound almost a bit MGMT-ish, yet maintain their own individual personality. Everybody’s Got A Secret starts on the quieter side, but steadily builds into a solid rocker by the end. There are also a few live tracks, including MF and Soul Wars, as well as a number of additional remixes (People, Burn It Down, and Jump On My Shoulders).

Originally released in March 2011, Megalithic Symphony has held a number of long-running, major Billboard chart positions including 120 weeks on Billboard 200 and 46 weeks on Heatseekers Albums Chart – hitting #1 seven separate times in 2012. The album is certified gold in Canada and is well on its way to gold certified sales of 500,000 in the U.S. AWOLNATION recently wrapped an extensive two-year world tour in support of Megalithic Symphony and are now in the studio to begin work on the highly anticipated follow up full-length album slated for release in 2014.
