AWOLNATION Deliver 'Panoramic View' Video

(Big Picture Media) "Panoramic View," a brand new single and music video from AWOLNATION is out today. It finds Aaron Bruno at his most vulnerable - written on piano at the very start of the pandemic, it reflects the overwhelming fear and uncertainty the world was facing.

Speaking to his own unborn children at the time, the track sends an uplifting message of embracing the scariness while harnessing the inner strength to believe that everything will ultimately be alright. The music video, also out today, was directed by Darren Doane.

Opening up about the heartfelt inspiration behind the track, Bruno shares: "I remember writing this one on a piano almost four years ago. It's quite a sincere and profound song because I wrote it to my scared little kid that I didn't even have yet. I have twin boys now but we weren't pregnant yet when I wrote it. Basically, I'm saying I'll protect you, everything's gonna be okay. Back then, we all felt scared in some way, no matter who you were-whether you were fearful of being sick or of how governments were handling it, or how your friends were handling it, personal decisions... During that time, I was lyrically and emotionally conceptualizing the idea of writing songs to a child. And in some ways I was writing songs to comfort a younger version of myself. I guess the point is to remind us that we can always find an escape through music, even at the worst times."

Earlier this month, AWOLNATION celebrated the anniversary of their debut album Megalithic Symphony, which dropped 13 years ago as of March 15. "Panoramic View" is the first single to be released from AWOLNATION's forthcoming album due out this summer.

AWOLNATION will also be joining 311 and NEON TREES on the "Unity Tour" this summer. The tour will kick off in Cincinnati, Ohio on July 20 and will be making stops throughout the United States before wrapping up in Redmond, Washington on August 31.
