Christopher Földi's State of Being is back with a new release for 2018 titled Awake. This marks the second release from the project since the group essentially disbanded a decade ago. The new release takes a more assertive guitar-driven approach than last year's intentionally understated release The Misinformation Age.
Awake starts off with the pounding “We Stand”, driven by the frustration of bipartisan politics where everyone thinks they're right. Songs look forward while paying homage sounds of the past, from the Industrial Dance of "You Got," to the New Wave inspired "Close to the Fire," to the straight-forward grunge rock of "Everyone". Földi channels his Goth Rock inspired vocals on "If You Let Go". The driving "Blind" makes the statement that we're not seeing the real world as it is. The somber "Insomnia" closes the album. Awake is available now through all major on-line retailers.
These are the days to stay Awake.
