The Wake

Album: Found In Far Away Places (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • The first single from Found In Far Away Places finds August Burns Red starting off the record off with a bang. "This song is a real kick in the mouth," guitarist JB Brubaker told Billboard magazine. "It's fast and heavy while discussing how our planet is being destroyed by the gross misuse of our resources, and the general apathy of the human race when it comes to caring for the Earth."
