AWOLNATION Turn The Courtroom Into A Circus In Their “Burn It Down” Video

Spending a day in court can be a draining, soul-sucking affair, but if real-life courtrooms were as entertaining as the one in AWOLNATION‘s video for their new single “Burn It Down”, we bet more people wouldn’t mind going to jury duty. The electro-punk meisters take the law into their own hands as ninjas, mermaids and astronauts pop up at the command of frontman Aaron Bruno — who stands on trial for having a “guilty, filthy soul”. Check out Idolator’s exclusive premiere of the band’s explosive (and funny!) new video below.

Keep your eyes peeled for a cameo by celeb DJ Samantha Ronson playing the judge (before she gets magically transformed into a mannequin). Clever bit of casting, as Ronson does a remix of the track “Guilty Filthy Soul” on the band’s EP.
