After teasing a national tour for what seems like forever, Australian pop-rockers Awaken I Am have finally graced us with the details.

Not only is the band set to tour sophomore LP Blind Love through seven major cities and towns, they’re bringing along American friends Picturesque for a co-headline tour.

Picturesque recently finished up on the final Vans Warped tour and have planned to spend the next few weeks in writing-mode before this debut Australian tour.

If you’re not familiar with Picturesque, check out their track ‘New Face’ below, lifted from their debut album Beautiful Human.

The Australian tour also marks the first jaunt for Awaken I Am without their guitarist Connor Verner Oakley. Connor was tragically killed in a car accident in May.

At the time of the horrific accident, the Brisbane band released a statement, which partly read:

As broken as we feel, to not continue is not an option. Music was Connor’s dream, we shared that dream with him and we hope to make him proud by keeping that dream alive. Dissolution was the last track we had the privilege of recording with Connor, he was so proud of it.”
