Guitarist Rob LaChance shares his thoughts:
“We’re thrilled to join our friends in Khemmis and crushers Conjurer for the Deceiver North America Tour 2023. I cannot think of a tour that we’ve done with a more diverse, unique, and riff-centric package than this one. Show up; bang that head, and have your skull caved in by a metric ton of heavy riffs!”
Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 16 at 10:00 a.m. local time. See all confirmed dates below.

Wake released their Thought Form Descent full-length in June via Metal Blade Records. Never a band interested in repeating themselves, Wake has evolved with every release. 2020’s Devouring Ruin made this clearer than ever, hammering the point home with the Confluence EP that same year, and now they return with Thought Form Descent—their most dynamic, diverse, and emotional release to date. The record boasts eight nuanced tracks that run the gamut from relentlessly heavy to exquisitely beautiful—often simultaneously—and instantly grab hold of the listener, demanding their full attention.
However, at the same time, they are lushly textured and densely layered and offer more with every subsequent exposure, unfurling to show hidden depths, and taking Wake to a whole new level.
To track the album, the band once again collaborated with Dave Otero (Allegaeon, Cattle Decapitation) at Flatline Audio in Denver, Colorado. Kevin Hufnagel of Gorguts and Vaura also makes an appearance, playing guitar on “Pareidolia” and “Observer To Master,” the latter track one of the most melodic on the record. Preview and purchase the record here.
Additionally, Wake recently released “Vast And Infinite,” remixed by Justin Broadrick of Jesu. The track was originally recorded in 2020 and was remixed in 2022. Fans can stream and purchase the track through Bandcamp here.
