NEW YORK, NY - NOVEMBER 5th: Today AWOLNATION releases "The Best" – the heir apparent to their most enduring hit song ever, "Sail." The track is the debut single from the band's forthcoming album, their 4th overall and their first with BETTER NOISE Music. Due out in 2020, the album features guest appearances by Rivers Cuomo of Weezer and Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros.

Better Noise Music is an artist development company that creates and markets entertainment content across various media platforms. Of the band's recent signing to the label, managers Berko Pearce and Scott Sheldon of RM64 say "It's exciting to partner with a label that's at the forefront of marketing in the new streaming era, and that has a proven track record of helping their artists reach bigger audiences. We've been enjoying working with the BETTER NOISE team on an integrated strategy across streaming, touring and radio, and we're eager to launch AWOLNATION's next projects with them."

Aaron Bruno, the songwriter and architect behind AWOLNATION, says of the new single, which will also kick off the new album, "I'm always on the journey to improving myself, but all along, knowing it's close to impossible to really be the best at anything. And what does it mean to be the best? And does that really matter? Or maybe it is more about the journey and acceptance of comfort within one's own existence"

The music video for "The Best," directed by Amalia Irons, also helps to tell the beginning of the new album's story and introduce one of the main characters. "I wanted to make a video that felt like some of my favorite childhood adventure movies and create something that has a magical feeling of the autumn season," says Bruno of the video.

AWOLNATION will venture out on a headlining tour next year with special guest Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness and openers The Beaches and Bleeker, kicking off the tour on Memorial Day weekend in Asbury Park, NJ as the opening concert for the 2020 Stony Pony Summer Stage series. The formidable alternative tour will also include stops in NYC at The Rooftop at Pier 17, Washington D.C.'s The Anthem, The Aragon Ballroom in Chicago and The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. AWOLNATION has shared the stage with the likes of Twenty One Pilots, Fall Out Boy, Prophets of Rage, Incubus, and Weezer to name a few and secured spots on festivals like Coachella, Bonnaroo, Firefly Festival, Life Is Beautiful, Made in America, Austin City Limits, Osheaga, and Reading & Leads. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday, November 8that 10am local time.

The Citi Presale will start on Tues Nov 5 @ 9am PT / 12noon ET. AWOLNATION's fan presale begins Tues, Nov 5 @ 11am PT / 2pm ET through Thur, Nov 7 @ 10pm local time. Spotify's Presale begins on Wed, Nov 6 @ 10am local time through Thur, Nov 7 @ 10pm local time. Other Local Presales run on Thur., Nov 7 from 10am to 10pm local time.

Aaron Bruno, the songwriter and architect behind AWOLNATION, wrote and recorded one of the most influential songs of the current decade with the chart-topping, record-breaking track 'Sail.' The first single off the platinum Megalithic Symphony (2011), 'Sail' is certified Diamond (10 million) and holds the record for the most weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart by an independent artist, the second longest for any artist.

The debut album also produced the Gold certified "Not Your Fault" and two other Top 10 US singles. AWOLNATION released the sophomore album Run in 2015 and 2018's follow up Here Come The Runts. Across the span of 3 albums, AWOLNATION has notched seven Top 5 alternative radio hits, including two #1's, and has accumulated millions of sales, downloads and over 1.5 billion streams globally. The music has been used in dozens of films, television shows and commercials around the world, and songs have been the genesis of viral sensations garnering hundreds of millions of streams and views across platforms like Instagram, Vine, TikTok, YouTube, etc.
