AWAKEN I AM have released “The Stages Of Grief,” the brand new video from their upcoming EP The Beauty In Tragedy, set for release tomorrow, April 26, 2019. The five song collection plays as a tribute dedicated entirely to their late guitarist Connor Verner-Oakley.
“The love that we all shared with Connor ran so deep,” admits drummer Luke McKenzie. “With such a sudden loss we never got the chance to let him know how much we loved him, how proud we are of him and how we cherished the final times we spent together. This recording was the hardest thing we have ever had to work through and move forward from. ‘The Stages Of Grief’ is self-explanatory, we are working through all of this and finding our way of saying he will always be loved and always missed.”
Tomorrow the Australian natives head to San Diego to kick off their North American tour (supporting Secrets), which will bring the bands dynamic live show to Canadian audiences for the first time, before wrapping up in Fresno on June 1.
