New Track Stream from ‘Awaken I Am’ ‘Black Dreams’ from The New Album “Blind Love”, Japanese Tour Dates Announced


“Blind Love,” the sonically infectious, ethereal and groundbreaking new album from Awaken I Am is set for release on September 29th, 2017. Today, the Australian melodic powerhouse are streaming their new single ‘Black Dreams.’

’Black Dreams’ is written about a person trying to climb their way out of a place of depression and anxiety,” explains vocalist Adam Douglas. “In times like this, you feel like you have lost yourself and so you push people away, looking for an escape by making irrational decisions. You soon realize the people who cared know you better then you know yourself.”

In 2014, Awaken I Am released their first album “Shields & Crowns,” which went on to extensive radio play across Australia, reaching #3 on the iTunes Metal Chart. Awaken I Am’s live show is impressive as well, erupting with energy, which was witnessed around the world on tours with Chiodos, The Devil Wears Prada, Emarosa, headlining dates in Japan and an appearance at So What Festival in Dallas. They continued pushing the boundaries of all genres, playing as openers and headliners, and turned the Australian rock scene on its head. All this ultimately lead to a worldwide deal with Victory Records in December 2016.

Jumping right into inspired sessions with producer Taylor Larson (From First To Last, I See Stars, Periphery), the band emerged with “Blind Love,” which according to Douglas, “is an impassioned record about relationships and being blind to another’s faults – and our struggles to look past our mistakes.”

Ready to take Blind Love across the planet, Awaken I Am will deliver their new live staples as they join Slaves on an Australian/New Zealand run beginning August 3rd, with additional dates to be announced soon.

The band consists of: Adam Douglas – Vocals, Luke McKenzie – Drums, Ned Jankovic – Guitars, Connor Oakley – Guitars.
