While in Austria for their performance at the Austrian Grand Prix, Aaron talked with Red Bull about his perfect road tracks.
"AWOLNATION frontman Aaron Bruno loves the sonic synchronicity of motoring and music.
"I think it's the momentum of going somewhere," says the Red Bull Records star. "Sometimes when I'm listening to a song whilst driving on the freeway back home and I have to slow down, I stop the song because there's nothing worse than a song that's running ahead of you."
Bruno and his band recently took a break from recording the follow-up to their smash-hit album, Megalithic Symphony to play a very special gig at the first Austrian Formula One Grand Prix for ten years ("It's amazing to be asked to play," he says. "Austria feels like a second home to us"); and it's fair to say that he's got a soft spot for all thing automotive.
"Being from America, Formula One isn't as big over there, but my father used to race in a series below Formula One before I was born, so I have a few black and white photos of him racing and that got me interested," says Bruno. "It may sound a bit ignorant to racing fans, but I watched the movie Rush recently, and really enjoyed it. It's our guitar player [Drew Stewart] who's obsessed with Formula One racing."

"Friday night at the Red Bull Ring saw the engine noise replaced with the tunes of electronic rock band AWOLNATION. "It's amazing to be asked to play on the return of the race in Austria, this place feels like a second home to us," said lead singer Aaron Bruno.

The frontman also revealed a surprising fact about his motorsport background, with racing running in the family. “My father used to race in a series below Formula One before I was born, so I have a few black and white photos of him racing and that got me interested in motorsport.”

Okay, I will admit that I've been wondering why the guys haven't returned home yet after their "last show" on the European tour was last week. Mystery solved. Via New York Times.
"There were to be a series of rock concerts at the track after the racing action on Friday and Saturday evenings, with several local and international acts, including on Friday the American band Awolnation and on Saturday the Swedish band Mando Diao. Between the concerts on Friday there was a Freestyle MotoX show and on Saturday a skydiving show is planned..."
