Dante are pleased to announce the free download of their single, Wake, out now via Stitch Records.

Stream and download the single Wake for free via the ABoF SoundCloud page.

Wake is the title track taken from the critically acclaimed album of the same name, released earlier this year, and showcases the band’s ability to instinctively span genres with a flair and panache many of their contemporaries would be proud of. On Wake the band illustrate their capacity to create traditional Celtic tunes that fit into a modern landscape. Beautifully picked guitars are complemented by the sweeping sound of fiddle and a snappy drum beat, all brought together seamlessly by stirring harmonies as the track builds to a thunderous conclusion.

The album Wake, which was produced and recorded by Frightened Rabbit’s Andy Monaghan, was Dante’s first full length offering, picking up wide ranging support from the likes of Beat Surrender, Artrocker Magazine, God Is In The TV, The Scottish Sun, Rock N Reel and was named in The Herald’s Top 50 Albums of 2013.
