Bangkok based melodic hardcore punk band Stay Awake have released their debut EP ‘One Stone Away’ on all major streaming services. Recorded at Bangkok’s Vintage Studio, the bands debut is hot and heavy, packed with driving riffs, passionate vocals and pulsing energy. The band have gone old school with the use of samples reflecting the attitude of their message. With positivity in the lyrics, Stay Awake want you to go and make something of yourself, disassociating with negativity.
Running in at just under 25 minutes, the EP is fast paced and doesn’t let up. With a few punkier tracks (Gimme Reason and Weighted Dice) to the more grandiose ‘(We Don’t Need) California’. Title track ‘One Stone Away’ is the heaviest on the EP, bordering on a metal vibe, circa 2005. Have a listen, open your ears and eyes and Stay Awake.
