WAKE ME have been swinging out of the gates since working with Platinum Super Producer Erik Ron (Godsmack, Staind, Bush) in 2018 and have been invited to share the stage with some of Rock's biggest names including Avenged Sevenfold, Shinedown, Kim Dracula, Five Finger Death Punch, Pop Evil, From Ashes To New, Skillet, Of Mice and Men, Puddle of Mudd, Sevendust, August Burns Red, 10 Years and more. In that same timeframe, the band has accumulated over 15 Million streams on Spotify alone and has been featured on multiple Rock and Metal Editorial Playlists. Their early-band rock/metal cover of Seal's "Kiss from a Rose" has garnered over 7 Million streams and named as one of the "greatest rock covers of the last two decades" by GUITAR WORLD MAGAZINE.
...ALL OF THIS AS AN INDEPENDENT BAND
Their hook-filled blend of hard rock, pop, and an unmistakable foundation of metal and skate punk has established WAKE ME as a band that is continuing to evolve and expand their sound while turning the heads of fans of all genres.
The quartet now features the explosive Lead Vocals and guitars of Collin Sanford with original frontman Justin Ray stepping into lead guitar/backup vocal duty while the rhythm section is dominated by Travis "Tricky" Authier (Drums) and the mighty Carlos Martin (Bass).
WAKE ME has been carefully curating singles over the past 5 years with established and on-the-rise producers such as Erik Ron (Godsmack, Staind, Bush), Andrew Baylis (Jellyroll, VRSTY), Joey Bradford (The Used, Letterkills), and Hiram Hernandez (AILD, Word Alive).
WAKE ME is currently working with the legendary Joey Bradford of The Used on a new batch of material. 2024 tour dates to be announced soon...
