Imminence Records had to fight off harmless diamondbacks, but they have welcomed Arizona’s metalcore outfit Dreaming Awake to the family. In preparation for their eleven track barrage on the ears in the form of Friction Lives, the band has released the lead single entitled “Friction.” The single also features guest vocals from Sycamour’s Jeremy Gilmore, whom is joined by Dillon Jones of Incredible Me as guest vocalists on the album.
““Friction” is the title track off the album, essentially the light at the end of the tunnel in regards to the underlying theme of the album, which is conflict, push and pull, giving and taking, and all that is the friction in our lives. It shows someone trapped within the conflicts of their lives, searching for a way out from their demons and struggles, reliving it over and over, until they let go and move with their friction and not against it.” – Vaughn Bell (Screamer)
