Sardinia’s Awake for Days are an alternative modern metal band of pure heart, unwavering talent and unrelenting drive on the bleeding edge of creativity and performance in the genre. Based out of the island paradise of Sardinia in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Italy Awake for Days bring a positivity and strength to their songwriting and lyrics that is desperately missing in the current status quo of bleakness in heavy music. It was Awake for Days talent, motivation and overall originality that caught MGI’s Shawn Barusch’s eyes and ears that ultimately brought him to sign a management deal with the band.
“I am very excited to be working with this exceptional song writing group!” says Shawn. “Unlike many artists that sit at home waiting for something to happen or don’t have the balls to get out in the real music world, these young Sardinian boys are grabbing the industry like they own it!!”
Awake for Days on signing with MGI, “We are now working with Shawn Barusch to build up a new era for the band. We think that he’s the right choice in order to bring our music to the biggest audience we can. We loved his enthusiasm, and the fact that he trust in our music. We’re more than excited and curious to see where he and the MGI can take us.”
AFD was founded in 2013 and then shortly afterward released their stellar inaugural album Magnificent Disorder to universal acclaim. Magnificent Disorder was also the inspiration for the band name, “The name Awake for Days comes from a non-sleeping month we had to face producing and promoting the first album Magnificent Disorder: it was an incredible time and it paid well with all the pros and cons.”
The long awaited sophomore album Multiverse will be launched in early 2019 which will be tackling heavy subjects that other bands shy away from and will instead be bringing positivity and courage to them. “The lyrics of our new album are pretty much focused on motivational themes. They’re about fighting for life; reach what you want for your future, defeating depression and what makes you weak every day.”
The Multiverse album will be supported with heavy touring both in Europe and the USA.
