We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of HAWKING’s new album Diverge (listen below), which is scheduled to be officially released tomorrow, April 7th. You can purchase the album on iTunes now.

HAWKING vocalist/guitarist Tom Vanderkam comments on the new release:

“This record is really just us trying to make the type of music we wish there were more of. It’s the culmination of being frustrated with the lack of middle ground between the Heavy/Progressive and Rock/Alternative scenes. We’ve never been accepted by the musical in-crowd or been cool with playing anyone else’s game. We’re music nerds who dig technical genres, but strong hooks and general pop sensibility are huge for us, so here we are determined to be aggressively original in the most listenable way possible.”

About the band:

Since their inception in 2014, alternative rockers HAWKING have gone about combining powerful, melodic vocals with surgically tight, interlocking guitar work and syncopated rhythms to yield a sound as viscerally impactful as it is highly addictive.

Despite their unwavering DIY ethic and reputation for being one of Canada’s hardest-touring alternative rock bands, HAWKING’s production – both on record and at their notoriously intense and dramatic live shows – are far from amateur. Aided by an elaborate light show, HAWKING exude the confidence and delivery akin to that of many of their more experienced contemporaries.

Underpinned by their passionate and honest approach to songwriting, HAWKING’s latest release, Diverge, is at the forefront of the band’s arsenal as they continue to conquer international shores with their ambitious and appealing brand of rock.
