ROCK BAND UNTIL I WAKE OFFER THEIR SPIN ON MARIAH CAREY’S HOLIDAY CLASSIC “ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU” — WATCH + LISTEN
Buffalo quartet Until I Wake — vocalist Cody Johnson, bassist Ryan Ridley, guitarist August Geitner, and drummer Alex Curtin — are offering their fun, festive, and thoroughly hard rock take on Mariah Carey’s modern holiday anthem “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” Watch + listen here.
“We wanted to take what is probably the most well-known, overplayed, and cheerful Christmas song, and twist it into something a little more dark and sinister-sounding,” says Johnson. “We wanted to give fans a break from hearing that version of the song and give them the option to play our version at family parties this holiday season.”
The spirited cover of the Christmas classic follows the band’s recent video for the new single “Octane.” Watch the video, which finds the band in performance mode from multiple perspectives, here.
Until I Wake, who announced their signing to Fearless Records this past summer, will hit the road in 2022 with Attack Attack! and Conquer Divide. All dates are below. Get tickets here.
Until I Wake have been steadily bubbling under in the hard rock scene since their formation in 2019. Thanks to its crunchy, guitar-driven anthems, the band has already tallied 5 million global streams to date and found itself on Spotify’s New Core, New Metal Tracks, and New Blood playlists, in addition to the song “Mixed Signals” being featured in SiriusXM Octane’s Test Drive. With early believers on board at tastemaker publications like Alternative Press and Kerrang!, Until I Wake are posted to take a leap forward into the rock stratosphere now that they have signed with Fearless Records.
