Hope Awakened, the newest addition to the Infamous Empire management roster, recently released their debut full length entitled On The Horizon at the end of October. The Charlotte, NC based alternative rockers was birthed in the mind of Rick Lewis. After writing, recording, and playing for various other bands Rich decided to form Hope Awakened. He took a Trent Reznor style approach with the On The Horizon in which he wrote, recorded, produced, and performed all of the instruments and vocals before recently recruiting Mike Giguere and Adam Wilson after the release.
Hope Awakened is an alternative rock band from Charlotte, NC featuring up and coming musician Rick Lewis. Rick has been writing, recording, and playing for local bands for the past three years. Rick formed Hope Awakened in early 2012. Rick then took a Trent Reznor style approach with Hope Awakened’s debut On The Horizon, in which he wrote, recorded, produced, and performed all of the instruments and vocals. Recently recruiting Mike Giguere and Adam Wilson, Hope Awakened’s live performance has the raw energy and sonic prowess you will not soon forget. Hope Awakened is strongly musically influenced by Rise Against, Paramore, Anberlin, Saosin, and Evans Blue while still maintaining a uniqueness to their sound, combining melodic, powerful guitars with soaring vocals. One thing the band hopes the listener will take from their music is that no matter what happens in life there is always “Hope.”
