A Wanted Awakening is a progressive melodic deathcore band based out of the city of Lowell, Massachusetts which includes vocalist Rick Hardy, Jason York (bass), John Tree (guitar), Derek St. Martin (guitar) and Andre Bedard (drums). Following the June release of ‘Catharsis’, A Wanted Awakening has garnered the support of the booking agency Hard Attack Entertainment. With this new support the band is currently booking a 30 day tour across the US.

This is A Wanted Awakening’s first official tour and the band is extremely excited to get the music in front of as many new fans as possible. The band is arming themselves with some new merchandise and of course copies of ‘Catharsis’. A Wanted Awakening has been waiting until they had a solid product and a successful game plan to embark on their first tour, so this is a very exciting time for AWA.
