Video: AWOLNATION, ‘Seven Sticks Of Dynamite’


Surfers and bikers collide in this Western bar brawl-inspired video from AWOLNATION. Directed by Hollywood stuntman Riley Harper and the band’s very own Aaron Bruno, the video was filmed at The Old Place in Agoura Hills, and features Rick Rubin, Duff McKagan and tattoo artist Dr. Woo. Everything seems to be going fine, with everyone nodding their heads to the music, but violence erupts and the guys tear the place up, taking it outside for some more mayhem. For the two directors, the shoot was a dream come true. “I’ve always wanted to make a video at The Old Place with all of my friends and showcase the spirit of old California,” says Bruno. “It’s pretty awesome when you get to film a bar brawl,” adds Harper, “but when you have free reign to shoot it at your local watering hole with all of your friends, that’s just a recipe for a good time and a great outcome!”

The song, “Seven Sticks Of Dynamite,” comes from the band’s third studio album, “Here Come The Runts,” arriving Feb. 2 on Red Bull Records.
