Awaken The Giant debuted its latest single this week.

The band premiered its new single, ‘Feel Alive‘ Thursday. The song’s debut comes more than two months after the band unveiled its then latest single, ‘Hypnotize.’

The overall musical arrangement featured in ‘Feel Alive’ presents a familiar melodic hard rock sound and style that fits well into any active rock radio programmer’s playlist. The overall sound is easily comparable to works from the likes of Finger Eleven, Three Days Grace, and others of that ilk. However, the screams that are incorporated into the song’s final bars present an equally interesting metalcore vibe.

The band discussed the song’s lyrical theme in a prepared statement.

“‘Feel Alive’ is a song about being caught up in depression and addiction, being in a crowded situation and not feeling part of it, and feeling eager to fast forward to the future in hopes of a better life and to feel alive again,” the statement reads.

In other news, Awaken The Giant has announced a series of live dates set to launch Feb. 25 in Houston, TX in support of its new EP, Black and Blue. Its release date is under consideration.

The band’s upcoming live run also features a performance alongside the likes of Seether, Nonpoint, and 3 Doors Down April 2 at the CPR Fest in Biloxi, Miss. The band’s tour dates are noted below.

Awaken The Giant Debuts New Single, ‘Hypnotize’

Independent rock band Awaken The Giant debuted its latest single this week.

The band premiered its new single, ‘Hypnotize’ Tuesday. ‘Hypnotize’ is available to stream and download through multiple outlets here.

The debut of ‘Hypnotize’ in its audio-only format comes more than four months after the band premiered its debut single, ‘I Fooled You.’ The song is available to stream and download through SpotifyApple Music, and Amazon. The band premiered the song’s lyric video Oct. 18.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Hypnotize’ is a notable contrast to that of ‘I Fooled You.’ Instead of the aggro/hard rock style approach and sound featured in that song, this composition is more comparable to works from the likes of Default, Nickelback, and Three Doors Down.

The lyrical theme featured in ‘Hypnotize’ is meant to deliver a positive message centered on relationships, according to comments made by the group in a prepared statement.

“‘Hypnotize’ is a song about being with someone and not having to fake it, and no longer having to prove anything because your relationship is in perfect harmony,” the statement reads.

In other news, Awaken The Giant is hoping to release its new EP, Black and Blue in 2022. A release date is under consideration.

Independent rock band Awaken The Giant released its debut single this weekend.

The band debuted its first-ever single, ‘I Fooled You’ Friday. The song is available to stream and download through Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon. The song is featured in the band’s forthcoming EP, Black and Blue, which is scheduled for release later this year. The EP’s release date is under consideration.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘I Fooled You’ is a mid-tempo composition. The balance of the clean vocals in the verses and the screams in the chorus gives the song an interesting melodic hard rock approach. The emotional depth in the composition pairs well with the song’s lyrical theme which clearly centers on the all too familiar topic of broken relationships.
