Brisbane, Australia rock outfit Awaken I Am have announced their signing to Victory Records. Beginning their journey in 2012, Awaken I Am have taken the Australian rock scene and turned it on its head, bringing their unique sound to a dedicated, underground following worldwide. Formed by vocalist Adam Douglas, Awaken I Am rebirthed themselves in 2014 with the addition of drummer Luke McKenzie and guitarists Ned Jankovic and Connor Oakley. The instant energy of the band clicked and their DIY work ethic, drive and hunger caught the attention of Victory Records, who are proud to welcome the four-piece to the label family.
“Victory is a label that has released albums that have literally shaped the modern rock genre. We are excited to work with a company that innovates because that is what we hope to achieve as a band with this new record,” says McKenzie.
In January 2017, the band will enter the studio with producer Taylor Larson (From First To Last, I See Stars, Periphery) to record their debut for Victory Records. “’Slumber’ is our first step in a new direction. The last 18 months have been a lot of hard work, at times frustration, and reinvention for us as a band and this first new track is a perfect representation of this journey,” explains McKenzie. “We all have some diverse influences that shape our music, going all the way from bands we grew up listening to such as Underoath through to Justin Timberlake.”
