3. Awaken I Am release new single

Awaken I Am released a new single, “Kin,” taken from their upcoming EP, The Beauty In Tragedy. The album is a tribute to their late guitarist Connor Verner-Oakley and will also feature their previously released track “Dissolution,” along with three other tracks. “Part of dealing with the loss of our brother Connor was coming to terms that he was taken from us far too soon and the anger stemming from that,” drummer Luke McKenzie says. “‘Kin’ was our chance to bring those emotions to the surface and say what we needed toward the responsible party.” The album will drop April 26 and is available to preorder here. They’ll be joining Slaves in Australia before touring with Secrets this April. Tickets are available here, and you can check out where they’re headed below.
