Aawks Release New Single "1831"

Psychedelic outfit AAWKS have released "1831" from their upcoming split with AIWASS. The collaboration officially drops on August 25th via Black Throne Productions.

"We're excited to be able to share our song "1831" with you," the band shares. "This is definitely one of the most ambitious and heavy songs we've written to date. Our bassist/guitarist Roberto Paraíso added some super cool, atmospheric violins to the track and we were stoked to be able to collaborate with the amazing COLONIZER on this track. COLONIZER added some killer, ethereal elements to the track alongside his monstrous vocals in the verse."

“We are honored to be able to present The Eastern Scrolls to you with the our good friends in AIWASS,” AAWKS elaborates on the album. “There have been many mysterious and odd synchronistic and coincidental events related to Madame Helena Blavatsky and AAWKS and we believe that there may even be a possibility that she’s channeling her otherworldly self into the sounds of this release.”

“We hope that you enjoy what we’ve collectively put forth and, if you’re so inclined, to do some reading about this mysterious, interesting and controversial woman and all of the truly spectacular things she did or may have done.”

“This project has been an experience I didn't see hitting me the way it has.” further adds AAWKS’ Randy Babic. “Delving into her life and works, hearing naysayers and followers gave me energy and enthusiasm.”

“Thinking about what she did in her time and what she introduced to the world was an overwhelming feeling of wonder and pride for women. She resisted the norm, fought for her beliefs and mystically took on everything in front of her. Near death experiences, haters and husbands couldn't tie her down from her true calling. Blessed to have had the challenge to create something in honor of her life.”

“Madame Blavatsky was in search of a universal religion - we’re in search of a universal sound that reflects her beliefs. These songs were inspired not just by what Blavatsky said, but what she might well have done. I’m beyond thrilled to be a part of this and go through the journey of listenership with my compatriots in AAWKS and our listeners.”
