‘Waiting for Apophis’ Is a Concept Album that Encapsulates a Myriad of Emotions in an Innovative and Creative Way.
Parker, CO — March 14th, 2022- Dark Water Collective has released a much-awaited modern rock album titled ‘Waiting for Apophis’ that follows the tumultuous journey of a protagonist as he navigates through life. This is a concept album which explores the journey of the main character through a creative display of emotions. Through these tunes we hear the main character feel stuck in a rut, become inspired and driven, set goals, experience setbacks, and ultimately finds a deeper connection with his fellow men.
The eclectic artists capture the full depth of these ups and downs beautifully, and hope that listeners find inspiration in this music. Dark Water Collective’s work stands in contrast to other compositions because of its lyrical genius as well as conceptual depth. The title track “Waiting for Apophis” is inspired by news of the near-Earth pass of the Apophis asteroid which is supposed to occur in the not-so-distant future.
The new release is specifically titled after the asteroid since the tracks focus on the unpredictability of life as well as the different challenges in life that make one who they are. In this way it functions to show us both the futility of the human endeavor as well as admiralty of human agency in simply fighting against all odds with patience.
The track provides strength to those who need it most. Apart from the already existing tracks which include “Pillars of Creation”, “Insomnia”, and “From the Ashes” among others, the talented musical collective is also set to release an EP later in the year.
