Interview with Amber Awakening!

Band: Amber Awakening
Genre: Melodic Deathcore

Q: Where does the band name “Amber Awakening” originate from?

Our name came from a dream that our drummer had. He had pictured UFO’s in with an amber color background, and then when he woke up he had remembered his dream. Then he came up with the name from there.

Q: How long have you been playing music? How long since you have been playing in a band?

I have been playing bass for about 2 and a half years now. Derek has been playing for about 8 years now, Nate has been drumming since he was about 5, Davids been doing vocals for about 3 years, not sure about Zach, but I’m guessing about 4-5 years. We’ve all been in bands for the past two years.

Q: Does your family support your decision on playing heavier styled music?

They support me in anything I do, while some of them wish I would play a different style, they still support me. They say they like the music, just not the vocals. I believe it’s the same way for all of our families.

Q: You have released two singles thus far, any plans on releasing a full EP or LP? If so, will it be soon?

Actually we had released a demo, but that was a long time ago, and it was far from a pleasant recording. We’re hoping to release at least an EP later this winter, we have enough songs down, just a matter of funding the recordings.

Q: Will there be any major differences between the singles released and the future album?

Definitely, we try not to have one sound for every song, so every song is something a little bit different.

Q: What one band was the most influential for you?

It’s hard to say, but I’d go with Wretched. Derek’s is The Faceless. David’s is also The Faceless and Dying Fetus. Nate is Born of Osiris, and August Burns Red. Zach’s is All Shall Perish.

Q: Favorite band that is not within the heavier styled genres?

Incubus or Pink Floyd for me. David also likes Pink Floyd. Derek’s favorite is probably Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Q: Any shout outs you would like to give?

I’d like to give a shout out to our good friends over at In Hell and Fury, they’re like our big brother band, and have really helped push us in the music scene. Also Blazoned Reverie, they’re just a badass band that works hard. Also a shout out to Josh Bodnar over at Euphony Recordings for doing such a great job on our single “The Void Terminal”.
