June 20 — Rock band Awake At Last premiered its latest single and video this month.
The band premiered its new single, ‘Living Fiction‘ and its companion lyric video June 17. The premieres come more than a month after the band debuted its then latest single, ‘Bloodline‘ and its companion video.
The musical arrangement featured in the band’s new single presents a distinct aggro rock vibe at certain points in the song. At others though, there is something about the combination of the instrumentation and vocals that makes the sound and style comparable to works from the likes of 12 Stones.
The lyrical theme featured in the band’s new single is a commentary about the role of technology in our lives, according to a statement from front man Vincent Torres. That would account for the also occasional semi-industrial vibe of the song’s arrangement.
“Technology plays a significant role in all of our lives,” Torres said. “‘Living Fiction’ asks the question of whether or not it plays too much of a starring role in our lives. It’s about the data we share, and how as a whole we’ve become more and more addicted to it. When we were writing I noticed how much I had come to rely on technology and social media to have a window to everything when the world had kinda shut down. Technology boomed and I just started noticing patterns and how much they’d become a rhythmic part of my life,” says the band’s vocalist, Vincent Torres.
He added, “I think we captured that energy in the song and it was an absolute pleasure to work with Tim Skold, who went in and added to that rhythm his signature more industrial elements that have made him Iconic. With that blend of energies I think it came out feeling like we are sort of absorbed in the technology rhythm. It’s been amazing getting back to things and seeing how our amazing fan base continues to support and rock with us. I’m Optimistic about the future and it is so good to get back into shows and releases.”
