Massachusetts Melodic Deathcore 5-piece A Wanted Awakening announce the addition of guitarist Mat Woodard of Charlton, Massachusetts to the band. Mat was formerly a member of Still Silent and Our Name is Legion. He is a longtime friend of the band and AWA looks forward to writing new music with him.
STATEMENT FROM MAT WOODARD:
“It is an absolute honor to be a part of this band, I’ve been a fan and friend of these guys for a very long time and the transition into the lineup felt natural and familiar. I’m excited to be able to shred next to some of my best friends and help achieve the goals A Wanted Awakening desires. Everyone has been awesome at welcoming me into the AWA family and I know I’ll do the fans proud by filling some very big shoes that Derek left behind.”
A WANTED AWAKENING released Catharsis on June 24th, 2012. Catharsis is a culmination of years of hard work and dedication by AWA to put forth their best work yet. The album consists of 10 songs that range from the trendy djent style, to epic power metal, to straight deathcore and anywhere in between.
