Rwake remained pretty consistent with their releases between 1999 and 2011, but save for their 2015 live album A Stone, A Leaf, An Unfound Door and a reissue of their original demo, the band hasn't done much. Or at least that's how it looks from the outside. According to vocalist Christopher Terry in an interview with Doomed & Stoned, Rwake has an entire album demoed and are shooting to get it all done in 2020.
What are some other projects you’re involved with at the moment, besides Mutant Of The Monster?
I do a radio show and make compilations of all the local stuff. I play in another band, Iron Tongue, but we don’t play that much either. It’s like most of the stuff I do, I don’t do it that much. I could say I play in a lot of bands, but it’s stuff that doesn’t happen that often. Rwake played last year at the Mutants fest and that was a really cool thing. It was cool to get together and play a new song – that was really cool! Rwake, we have a whole album written, recorded basically. Not recorded to put out, but like a demo.
You know, we have to figure out how we’re going to do it as a band. Reid [Raley] is busy all the time. If he’s not touring in his other bands, which they tour a lot, he is constantly on the road. He’s a real busy dude! Our other guitarist, John, lives in Nashville, Tennessee or Murphysboro. So it’s tough for Rwake to get it going, but it’s there when we can figure it out. We’ve all put it on our radar for 2020.
Definitely check out the entire interview. Terry talks about everything from the first new Deadbird album in 10 years to a new festival Mutants Of The Monster.
