Awolnation’s New Single ‘Kill Your Heroes’ Hits Top 10
Awolnation has once again crossed into Top 10 at alternative radio with their new single "Kill Your Heroes." The third single from the bands' debut album Megalithic Symphony (Red Bull Records), is the third consecutive charting single from the band to break the chart Top 10. Previously, "Sail" peaked at #5, followed by "Not Your Fault" which hit #3 on the alternative charts. Awolnation is one of only four bands to have had three Top 10 singles from their debut album since The Killers in 2004-05. They share this honor with Mumford & Sons, Cage the Elephant, and Foster the People.

The first single from the album, "Sail," was recently certified platinum having sold over 1.6 million digital downloads and has been certified double platinum in Canada. Meanwhile "Not Your Fault" has sold more than 255,000 downloads itself.
"Sail" was recently featured in the latest BMW ad campaign titled "Feeling Remains" which prominently ran during the 2012 Summer Olympics, and has been featured on episodes of So You Think You Can Dance, American Idol, and The A&E television series Longmire.
