Today, multi-platinum artist AWOLNATION shared the official music video for their single ‘Passion’ which was the #1 most added at Alternative Radio and currently #14 on the Alt Radio charts. The video features well known Brazilian skater Og De Souza, and showcases his lust for life and skateboarding. Check out the video here.
Directed by Ravi Dhar (Lianne La Havas) with Director of Photography Russell Houghten (Transworld, Urban Isolation, Volcom, New Balance) at the helm, ‘Passion’ follows disabled skater Og De Souza in his native Recife, Brazil. There is a lot to Og – in his prime he was attempting and landing the same tricks as the best skaters. He had polio as a child which led to his disability. Originally using the skateboard as a simple means to get around Og perfected the sport and became a shredder. He has gone on to inspire a handful of disabled skaters in Brazil. Quite simply he is a legend.
“Og has a such an amazing passion for life, positivity, and of course, skating,” says frontman Aaron Bruno. “It’s an inspiration to me and what he does is a great example of how to overcome obstacles in life through your passion. I know music has saved my life on more than one occasion. It’s an honor for us that he wanted to be a part of this video and share some of his life together.”
‘Passion’ is featured on Here Come The Runts, AWOLNATION’s third studio album due out on February 2, 2018. Fans can preorder the album at awolnationmusic.com and receive instant downloads of ‘Seven Sticks of Dynamite,’ as well as ‘Passion.’ In support of Here Come The Runts, AWOLNATION will be embarking on a headlining tour with support from Nothing But Thieves on February 11th in Toronto, and touring the States until mid-March before crossing the pond for a European/UK run throughout the month of April.
