New Noise Magazine is happy to bring forth the gigantic and doom bending record Awaken by Confusion Master. The record’s focus representing the band’s attitude: condensation and reduction to what is really important and, musically, creates a well-focused sound: existentialism and escapism – manifesting the personal horrors in tone drawing from these inspirations. Awaken features four tracks delivered over forty minutes. The LP will contain a CD version of these tracks and three additional bonus songs which will later be released on vinyl as limited edition split records with other bands to keep the band’s release politics an ongoing venture.
The thundering, towering presence of the band’s sound is felt across each track. The Awaken LP/CD pack and digital release will be brought to life by Exile On Mainstream on April 27th, in close connection with Japanese label Bonten Records who will release a CD only-version on their own.
In support of Awaken, Confusion Master will tour across Europe and beyond, leading with a hometown record release show on May 5th. This will be followed by a run of tour dates in Japan scheduled for May 21st through 26th, with shows in Tokyo, Fujisawa, Gifu, Nagano, Niigata, and Tokyo. Stand by for additional dates to be announced.
