Awaken The Giant Tackles Mental Health, Addiction In New Single

Courtesy: O’Donnell Media Group

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 Show Dates:

Friday 2/25 Houston, TX @Acadia Bar

Sunday 2/27 Tulsa, Oklahoma w/Kingdom Collapse @ The Vanguard

Monday 2/28 Memphis, Tennessee w/Kingdom Collapse @ Growlers

Tuesday 3/1 Fort Walton Beach, FL @ DownTown Music Hall

Saturday 3/5 – Pascagoula, Mississippi @ The Celtic Irish Pub

Friday 3/11 Katy, TX @The Wildcatter Saloon w/Uncured, Versus Me & Madame Mayhem

Friday 3/18 New Orleans, Louisiana @ Babylon Music & Sports Bar

Saturday 4/2 CPR FEST with 3 Doors Down, Seether, Badflower, Nonpoint

Black & Blue has produced not only its title track as a single, but also ‘I Fooled You‘ and ‘Hypnotize.’ The track listing for Feel Alive is noted below.

Black & Blue Tracklisting:

1. Feel Alive

2. 2 Pump Chump

3. Hypnotize

4. I Fooled You

5. Make Believe

6. Seen Enough

Artifas Waxes Philosophical In New Single; Announces New Live Dates With Nonpoint

Courtesy: Imagen Records/Warner Music Group

Artifas premiered its latest single single this week.

The band premiered its new single, ‘Legacy‘ Friday. The song is the fourth single from the band’s forthcoming album, Reflections, which is scheduled for release Jan. 14 through Imagen Records/Warner Music Group. The record has also produced the singles, ‘Safe,‘ ‘Leave Me For Dead‘ and ‘Cut Me Out.‘

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Legacy’ is unique from its counterparts in the album. In the case of this song, the arrangement is more of an aggro rock sound where the other songs are more emocore in their approach.

The lyrical theme featured in the band’s new single is a philosophical rumination about the mark that we make on the world during our lives, according to a statement from the band.

“Legacy is a question, both to ourselves and our listeners,” the statement reads. “The question is what will you leave behind when your time is up? This is something we ask ourselves constantly. You only get one life. Are you doing everything you can to live the best life you can? In the end will you be satisfied with the legacy you leave behind?”

In other news, Artifas is scheduled to serve as support for Nonpoint’s upcoming live run. Nonpoint’s upcoming tour dates are makeup dates for dates cancelled this year due to COVID diagnoses among the band and a traffic incident that temporarily sidelined the band.

Artfas’ live dates with Nonpoint are noted below.

Artifas on tour with Nonpoint:

1/7 – Indianapolis, IN @ Emerson Theater w/Nonpoint
1/8 – Battle Creek, MI @ The Music Factory w/Nonpoint

Nonpoint Debuts ‘When Doves Cry’ Video

Courtesy: 361 Degrees Records

Nonpoint opened the new week with a new video.

The band premiered the video for its cover of Prince’s ‘When Doves Cry‘ Monday. The video’s premiere comes more than a month after the band premiered the song by itself. The song is available to stream and download here.

Nonpoint’s new video is a relatively minimalist presentation. It opens with front man Elias Soriano on camera performing his part and blends that with footage of drummer Robb Rivera adding his subtle touches to the song. As the song reaches its peak, the black and white presentation expands into full color and presents the band performing the song in a sound stage, complete with solid white backdrop.

Where Prince’s original is a full-on 80s-influenced song in its arrangement, Nonpoint’s rendition takes the song’s lyrics (which seem to present a subject who is talking to another about their broken relationship) into full account with the mood and energy that it establishes.

The brooding approach to the verses do well to help translate the pain and frustration felt by the song’s subject while the choruses bring that frustration and pain to a peak each time. That emotion is heightened through the song’s overall instrumentation, enhancing the song’s presentation even more.

Front man Elias Soriano talked about the band’s take on the song in a prepared statement.

“Our fans throughout the years have always had a quiet romance with the songs we like to cover,” the statement reads. “Seeing that our biggest showing in that category, our cover of Phil Collins ‘In The Air Tonight,’ was a suggestion from a friend and fan of the band, we thought it only fitting we let all our fans have a chance to throw their hats in the ring this time. So in the middle of a global pandemic, we threw up a bracket style voting tournament with a list of contenders from Metallica to DMX. As fans voted over a few weeks, it was exciting to watch it go from 16 songs to the final two, Metallica’s – Nothing Else Matters vs Prince’s – When Doves Cry. When they chose Prince, the real work began. We went through version after version. We knew we had to do it justice in the biggest way we could as tribute to Prince and still make it Nonpoint. I’m happy to report from initial response among the few who have heard it is exciting and we look forward to our fans singing it for years to come.”

In other news, Nonpoint recently announced a series of dates that were re-scheduled due separately to a traffic incident and to COVID diagnoses in two of the band members. The re-scheduled dates are noted below.

The following shows have been rescheduled to the following dates in 2022:
1/7/2022 Indianapolis, IN @ Emerson Theater
1/8/2022 Battle Creek, MI @ The Music Factory
1/9/2022 Ft. Wayne, IN @ Piere’s

Nonpoint Debuts Cover Of Prince’s ‘When Doves Cry’

Nonpoint is bringing renewed attention to a classic song from the late great singer-songwriter Prince.

The band premiered its cover of Prince’s classic song, ‘When Doves Cry‘ Friday. The band’s brings new life and identity to the song. Where Prince’s original is a full-on 80s-influenced song in its arrangement, Nonpoint’s rendition takes the song’s lyrics (which seem to present a subject who is talking to another about their broken relationship) into full account with the mood and energy that it establishes.

I’m happy to report from initial response among the few who have heard it is exciting and we look forward to our fans singing it for years to come.”

In other news, the band is continuing its current tour, which was recently slowed by a pair of COVID-19 diagnoses and a traffic incident that saw the band lose a trailer holding its gear. The band posted a video this week, showing everything that it has gone through recently.

While the band has suffered some setbacks, it has not allowed these recent issues to halt its tour. The band has issued a statement on its recent bad luck streak and assured audiences that its tour will continue. The band’s statement is noted below.

“If someone hadn’t been filming when it all happened, people probably wouldn’t believe it,” singer Elias Soriano says about the band’s most taxing and obstacle-filled week in years. You thought it couldn’t get worse than 2020 and dealing with COVID? How about watching your trailer full of gear roll off into a Tennessee forest at 75 mph? Watch the video update to see the full story, then visit http://www.nonpoint.com for the chance to purchase an exclusive design to help with offsetting shortfalls and damage from the band’s brush with COVID as well as the accident with their trailer.”

In related news, one member of the band’s 361 Degrees fan base has launched a GoFundMe page to help the band cover the costs of replacing its damaged equipment and other costs. The page had raised more than $6,200 as of Friday. Donations can be made through the page here.

In more related news, the band is — as noted — continuing its tour. That is because as Soriano reveals in the video, most of the band’s gear survived the incident. The band’s upcoming dates, including re-scheduled dates, are noted below.

Nonpoint Releases Statement On Recent Trailer Incident, COVID-19 Diagnoses

Courtesy: O’Donnell Media Group

Nonpoint has had a rough go if it this month.

The band suffered a tough loss early this month when a trailer containing the band’s gear disconnected from its vehicle and flipped into a forest in Tennessee. To make matters worse, two of the band members were recently diagnosed with COVID-19.

While the band has suffered some setbacks, it has not allowed these recent issues to halt its tour. The band has issued a statement on its recent bad luck streak and assured audiences that its tour will continue. The band’s statement is noted below.

“If someone hadn’t been filming when it all happened, people probably wouldn’t believe it,” singer Elias Soriano says about the band’s most taxing and obstacle-filled week in years.

Atreyu Debuts ‘Warrior’ Remix

Courtesy: Spinefarm Records

Atreyu premiered an updated take of its song ‘Warrior‘ this week.

The updated take features guest appearances by Travis Barker (Blink-182) and Zero 9:36. The original song is featured in Atreyu’s latest album, Baptize, which was released in June through Spinefarm Records.

The updated take of ‘Warrior’ does show some differences from its source material. For starters, the remix is shorter than the original take by less than only 20 seconds. The original runs approximately three minutes, five seconds while the remix runs two minutes, 48 seconds. The remix is shorter as it omits part of the breakdown and replaces it with some brief rapping from Zero 9:36 (a.k.a. Matthew Cullen). Other than that, the two arrangements are largely the same.

‘Warrior’ is just one of the songs that serves as a single for Baptize. The album has also produced the singles, ‘Save Us,’ ‘Underrated,’ and ‘Catastrophe.’

In other news, Atreyu has expanded its upcoming tour schedule. The band’s initial tour schedule was set to launch Nov. 9 in Dallas, TX with support from Tetrarch, Crown the Empire, Saul, and Defying Decay. Its new, updated schedule is set to launch Sept. 3 in Green Bay, WI with Nonpoint, Tetrarch, and Another Day Dawns.

Following its brief run with Nonpoint, Tetrarch, and Another Day Dawns, Atreyu now also has dates scheduled with Eighteen Visions, Dragged Under, and Dying Wish on Oct. 5 & 6 in Phoenix, AZ and Los Angeles, CA.
