Melbourne melodic metal crew The Last Martyr have just revealed their brand new track Stay Awake! We were able to get first dibs on it, so take a listen to it here first and let us know what you think.
"The song speaks of the doubts we all face in pursuit of our goals and in particular, the inner battle we have with ourselves often right before that goal is achieved, when we feel like giving up because we can’t see what lies ahead" says vocalist Monica Strut. "Stay Awake is about the moment, right before you hit a massive goal - where you consider giving up. For me, most of the lyrics were written right before I found my now bandmates. I was trying to convince myself to hang in a little longer and keep my game face on. I believe when this happens, it’s the universe’s way of testing us to see how bad we want something."
Into The Black EP
Stay Awake is the second track from the band's debut EP Into The Black, due out February 1, 2019. The EP was Mixed and mastered by Ted Furuhashi of Melbourne's Circles and will be available for pre-order soon.
