USA based dark-electro act
has released new single/video
The Awakening shared a music video for the new single ‘Shadow Call’ – taken off the current album ‘This Alchemy’.
‘Shadow Call’ is the third single taken off the album ‘This Alchemy’ and features a dramatic and cinematic black and white video created by The Awakening frontman Ashton Nyte.
“The song and video are essentially about dealing with depression and other forms of mental illness. I believe that if we feel safe enough to speak about these challenges, we have a better chance to cope with them and hopefully overcome them. At the very least, I would like to stand in solidarity with all who suffer from these illnesses. There should be no shame in suffering or seeking help,”
says Ashton Nyte.
Now based in the USA, ‘The Awakening’ is a dark musical project originally from South Africa, founded by singer, songwriter, and producer Ashton Nyte.
The band has released ten albums to date.
Ashton Nyte has also collaborated with members of The Mission, Peter Murphy, The Cure, Beauty In Chaos, and many more.
Nyte released his first book of poetry and short stories and his 7th solo album, ‘Waiting For A Voice’, in 2020.
