Independent hard rock band Awake At Last will launch a new slate of summer tour dates next month.
The two-month-long-plus schedule, which is scheduled to launch May 10 in Covington, KY, is in support of the band’s forthcoming album The Change. The 12-song record, which runs almost 40 minutes, will be released through Outerloop Records. Pre-orders for the album are open now.
In anticipation of the album’s release and the upcoming tour, the band released the visualizer for the album’s latest single and title track last week. The almost four minute song’s musical arrangement will appeal to fans of melodic hard rock bands, such as Sevendust, Three Days Grace and Shinedown. It features guest vocals from Ice Nine Kills front man Spencer Charnas as an added bonus.
The song’s lyrical theme is one of self-empowerment, according to a collective prepared statement from the band.
“‘The Change’ is anthemic and bold,” the statement reads. “It’s a call to arms to our listeners to not only make a change in themselves to pursue more fulfilling lives, but also to lead by example and be the change in the world that shows others they don’t have to be afraid to make the transformation themselves.”
The release of the visualizer for ‘The Change’ comes a little more than a month after the band debuted the video for The Change‘s lead single ‘Dead Generation.’
The current schedule for Awake At Last’s tour is noted below. Famous Last Words, Dayshell and At My Mercy will join the band on the first leg of the tour. Eyes Set To Kill and Rivals will join the band for the second leg of the tour. Tickets are available here.
