ALAZKA – release new single ’Phoenix’ and start pre-order for the new album

Recklinghausen, Germany-based post-hardcore act, ALAZKA have released the music video for their brand new song ‘Phoenix’. The song comes off the upcoming debut album, »Phoenix«, which will be released on the 25th of August via Arising Empire & SharpTone Records. The new record can be pre-ordered now.

The band commented: “We chose Phoenix as the title track because it describes the overall message of the album. Life isn’t easy. It leaves its marks and scars upon us but these scars are what makes a life worth living. They shape our identity and tell our story when it’s all over. Everyone of us is striving for something and in doing so we all make mistakes and fail from time to time. In the end we can rise over the pain like a phoenix rising from his ashes.”
