Waking April is a Christian Metal band from Phoenix Arizona. The band formed in 2010. Our influences are As I Lay Dying, Unearth, August Burns Red, We Came as Romans. Our songs blend hard and heavy riffs with resolved melodic choruses. We aim to write songs with a positive message of hope and relief. Our lyrics talk about real life experiences and hardship (heavy riffs with screaming vocals)and how we choose to deal with them, solve and learn from these experiences through faith and determination to continue life’s journey of ups and downs always with our heads up high (melodic choruses).
