The Awakening has just released a brand-new video for “Back To Wonderland”, off their most recent album, “Chasm” (Intervention Arts). Ashton Nyte, the man behind The Awakening has said that he chose excerpts from the iconic German Expressionist movie “Metropolis” to help illustrate the subject matter and message of the song. The “Back To Wonderland” video features Ashton Nyte and Rose Mortem of The Awakening, filmed by Ashton Nyte and Damin Smit and edited by Nyte.
“Lyrically, Back To Wonderland is essentially about our tendency to rather amuse ourselves than deal with, or even acknowledge the awful things taking place in the world at any given moment. I believe every one of us could make a difference, if we could put other people above our own selfishness and our insatiable desire to be entertained,” says Nyte.
