AWOLNATION Releases Animated 'Slam (Angel Miners)' Music Video

On Friday (March 13), AWOLNATION released its video for “Slam (Angel Miners).” 

The new track is off the band's upcoming album, Angel Miners And The Lightning Riders, out April 24.

The incredible video features stop motion, live action greenscreen work, and computer animation. The new video continues the journey of this era's character, Capala — who was introduced in AWOLNATION's video for “The Best.”

At the end of the video for “The Best,” you'll remember that Capala is struck by lightning and his body transformed into a glowing mass. In “Slam (Angel Miners),” fans see Capala in a brawl with Zuno from the previous video showing the struggle between light and dark.

“Any given day I feel one way or the other,” singer Aaron Bruno said in a press release. “The whole album is about flitting between those two states of mind.”

AWOLNATION will be heading out on tour this spring and summer with Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness. You can check out the dates below.
