Bombastic South Sydney pop punks THE GREAT AWAKE are driven by relentless positivity, and they’re psyched to release their super sweet debut album ‘Reasons For Leaving’ on February 24
“A few words in the right key will remind me that this life is fucking great.” This is the catch cry that has propelled The Great Awake to the precipice of unleashing their hard-earned debut album on the world. Infested with a serious case of collective wanderlust and a deep passion for what they’re doing musically, this intrepid foursome have recovered from a travel break, gotten the band back together and crafted a ten track hard-hitting belter of an LP titled ‘Reaons For Leaving.’ The record marks the convergence of a heap of touring, an EP and a 7″ release that saw them scoop up both live acclaim and nods from both triple j and community radio.
Marrying the double trouble vocal harmonies of classic early 00’s pop punk and Frank Turner’s disarmingly charming earnestness, The Great Awake add crisp drum tones, deft riffage and big singalong choruses. This is music for folks who like to hold their beers aloft, sing along, grin a lot and generally feel like part of something good. For house parties on hot, long nights and new friends.
Having directed their love of travel to touring the nation and honing their live show, The Great Awake are no strangers to long nights and longer drives. The band has deservedly shared stages with punk hallmarks the likes of Good Riddance, Hawthorne Heights, Kisschasy, Luca Brasi and more, The Great Awake is a name found on the lips of those savvy on top notch local melodic punk rock. Kill Your Scene raved most convincingly “when they started playing all I wanted to do was drink and throw around tables around the place yelling out ‘fuck the police’.” Catch the band nailing their fiery live show on tour nationally through March and April.
It’s PMA all day from these great guys. Get around some big hearted local punk.
