Brisbane alt-rock group Awaken I Am’s are releasing their new album ‘Blind Love’ via Victory Records, produced by Taylor Larson (I See Stars, Capture The Crown, Periphery). In 2014, Awaken I Am released their first album ‘Shields & Crowns’. It reached No. 3 on the iTunes Australian Metal Chart. They followed it up by touring with Chiodos, The Devil Wears Prada, Emarosa, and I Set My Friends On Fire. They also headlined dates in Japan, and appeared at this year’s So What Festival in Dallas, TX. And they have been praised in the music press since.
Vocalist Adam Douglas says title track ‘Blind Love’ was written from his personal experience of becoming someone he never wanted to be, but being loved anyway. He says in a statement: “The imagery in the music video of the rose withering over time representing a dying love and the broken mirror represents seeing a broken version of who you want to be.”
“Shimmers with atmosphere, sky-high vocal hooks, and a seductive curveball” – Rock Sound.
"Easily one of the best releases to come out of the Australian scene in a long while" – Sputnik Music.
"A stunning release from a band that deserves to be catapulted into the spotlight" – Kill Your Stereo.
