Awaken has released a new single entitled Graveyards off of their upcoming album Monsters and Machines. Monsters and Machines is set to release February 26th, 2021.
Graveyards’ lyric video opens with intense imagery highlighting current events in America before blessing your ears with a massively down-tuned intro riff. Chad Griffin’s voice then takes center stage, singing relevant and passionate lyrics accompanied by plentiful visual imagery from the lyric video.
The lyrics themselves serve as a grim reminder that history is bound to repeat itself when it is forgotten. They ring true especially in these times, where violence and destruction have become normalized.
“We are already broken from the chains
But we can’t seem to open up this cage”
As Christians, we know that Jesus Christ has already paid our debt to sin and that we have been released from the vicious cycle that constantly encourages us to be violent and destructive. We here at Solid Rock Radio are very appreciate of faith-based bands like Awaken that encourage and remind us that we are not of this fallen world.
Graveyards is off of Awaken’s upcoming album Monsters and Machines that is set to release February 26th. Pre-orders are available on Apple Music, and you can pre-save the album on all major streaming platforms by clicking here.
