The Canadian melodic rock band formerly known solely as Slyde have returned, now as THE SLYDE, and with their first full-length album, “Awakening“.
The album came alive this past Friday, May 18th, and is now being shared via a Soundcloud stream. The album contains upbeat, uplifting contents that possess elements of progressive rock and melodic metal. With synths and other dynamic enhancements playing a role in the music, the “feel good” ratio here runs pretty high.
THE SLYDE “Awakening” is available for purchase now at THIS LOCATION. The band will launch their Canadian album release tour next week, you can find the itinerary below.
Nathan Da Silva – voice/guitar
Sarah Westbrook – keyboards/synthesizer/samples
