                       "are based out of the island paradise of Sardinia and play a killer style of modern metal that is sure to elevate the genre once the world hears it."



Awake for Days is an alternative metal band of pure heart, unwavering talent, and unrelenting drive on the bleeding edge of creativity and performance in the genre. Based off the coast of Italy on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia, they bring a positivity and strength to songwriting that is desperately missing in modern metal.

After founding in 2013, Awake for Days released their inaugural album, Magnificent Disorder, to universal acclaim. The sleepless weeks spent producing and promoting the album became the inspiration for the band’s name, and a testament to the effort behind the project

Awake for Days has toured through Italy, the United Kingdom, Belgium, and the United States. They’ve opened for major acts such as Testament and Exodus and have had their songs played on the radio.
