Brisbane’s alt. hard rock/core outfit Awaken I Am have released a prolific, heartwarming and cathartic song tribute “Indifference”dedicated to their late guitarist Connor Verner-Oakley.
Awaken I Am’ latest five track EP is titled The Beauty In Tragedy and will be released Connor’s birthday April 26, 2019. The EP features the previously released song/video “Dissolution” and three other new tracks dedicated to Oakley. Drummer Luke McKenzie explains, “The last track we had the privilege of recording with Connor was “Dissolution” he was so proud of it. We shared the same dream with him and we hope to make him proud by keeping that dream alive with The Beauty In Tragedy. Through all of the pain, our goal was to take a completely tragic situation and make something beautiful, inspiring the album name. Recording this was our chance to be sad, angry, confused and try to find a way to come to terms with grief the best we can through music!”
