Brisbane’s newest nu-metal outfit SERENE have released a new track into the world – a bone-achingly, hard-hitting track entitled ‘Stay Awake’. Offering a Post-Hardcore vibe infused with catchy melodies and brutal breakdowns, Serene blend beautifully constructed orchestral ambience with metal catharsis, creating an exciting yet dramatic sound that defines them. Consisting of Vocalists Dan Turnock and Daniel Jury, Guitarist Jarred Vickers, Bassist Tom McKellar and Drummer Jimmy Payne, the five-piece puts its massive energy into crafting a sound that’s dense without losing substance. This enables the band to convey their ideas and stories into their songs that drive home a message.
Jarred Vickers said of the track and it’s meaning: “Stay Awake was written from the perspective of a personal issue to addiction of prescription medication which lead to insomnia and chronic depression after an abusive relationship.”
The band have been in building mode since inception, garnering fans from playing shows with Slaves, I Set My Friends on Fire, Miss Fortune, We Set Signals, Awaken I Am, Bayharbour, Sienna Skies, Storm The Sky and more. This new track “Stay Awake” heralds new sounds and even more new music from the band in the near future.
Serene’s brand new track “Stay Awake” is out now on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music and all good digital outlets. Check out the track and video below.
