We have released some videos lately to help promote both the new album and our live show. Head over to YouTube and check them out! Just search "NOWAKE Gone" to see the latest (a lyric video for "Gone" cut by our bassist, Ryan). It should enable the autoplay feature and will roll out a bunch of the other vids after that. It is also at the bottom of this post.
Hope everyone is having an awesome summer. I know we are! We played Kansas for the first time as well as The Firebird in St. Louis and a bunch of other great venues! Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up with all our shows, songs, news and shenanigans...
Here is Sean giving some insight into "Gone":
"I wrote this song while I was away from my wife and daughter in 2014 for 13 weeks at Columbia Fire Academy. It was a way of dealing with the separation from them at the time. I knew it needed to be an acoustic song to capture the feeling of that time, so we recruited Austin Birkhead (who was not a permanent fixture in the band at that time) to lay down the acoustic tracks in the song as he plays an acoustic like nobody's business! He went on to play the second half of the solo as well.
Our producer on this album (Scott Donegan) did an excellent job of capturing the emotion in my opinion.
If you like the song, please consider downloading either just the single or this entire NOWAKE album on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon MP3, CDBaby.com or wherever you get your music at these day.
Thanks to Ryan Brent Gilmore for cutting the lyric video for us! Turned out very simple and clean just like I envisioned it! Oh, and Tank even has a cameo in it LOL. And who knows, maybe we can cut an official music video for it someday..."
