Awaken I Am have released a brand new video for ‘Kin,’ from their upcoming EP “The Beauty In Tragedy,” set for release on April 26, 2019. The five song collection plays as a tribute to their late guitarist Connor Verner-Oakley, and features the previously released song/video ‘Dissolution’ with ‘Kin’ and three new tracks dedicated to Oakley.
“What would you say to someone who took a loved one from you if you had the chance?” asks drummer Luke McKenzie. “Part of dealing with the loss of our brother Connor was coming to terms that he was taken from us far too soon and the anger stemming from that. ‘Kin’ was our chance to bring those emotions to the surface and say what we needed towards the responsible party.”
