about

The story of “Awaken” officially began in late 2010, heralding the arrival of Nostics’ unique sound on the Australian music scene. Born from a desire of guitarist Apache to create hard organic sounds with provocative lyrical content, close friend and lead guitarist Pilot was summoned and the ground themes were recorded. Now the search was on for the singer that would interpret the raw instrumentals and compliment them with a lyrical and melodic soundscape. A chance meeting on a Melbourne music video shoot between Apache and lead singer Chase and a merging of ideas ultimately let to a creative musical collaboration.

Drummer, Fox (of Lady Strangelove) and Bassist, El Pat (of Ice On Mercury) were invited as guest artists in prerecording sessions in an atmospheric 1800’s mansion on the coast of South Australia. What began as a musical experiment turned into an all-out intensive writing and recording session over 10 days, breathing life into 10 tracks which evolved into the base for Nostics’ debut LP. With greatly varied influences from the likes of Faith No More, The Doors, Linkin Park, Rage Against The Machine, System Of A Down, Pearl Jam, Incubus, Tool, and more, there were plenty of ideas flying around that set the stage for the album “Awaken” to come to be.

2011 saw the current band lineup coming together: Chase (lead vocals), Apache (guitar), Pilot (lead guitar), Sandro (drums), and El Pat (bass). A creative medley of five individuals born in five different countries now sees the Nostics lineup completed. This year also brought a massive amount of pre recording and travel interstate to bring all the guys together to fine tune the music before hitting the studio. That time eventually came and they spent just over 5 weeks straight at Studio 52 in Melbourne recording the 14 tracks that have become “Awaken“.

2012 launches their debut LP after much anticipation and with tracks already sourced for various media, ripples have caused disturbance in the water!

This is just the beginning for Nostics, their debut video, Creature, by cinematographer Nima Nabilirad is out now and receiving screening on music programs nationwide. The single is available now through Bandcamp and iTunes.

The bands gig schedule has amped up and they are headlining numerous nights and events on the local circuit with word spreading and interest coming from interstate and internationally. The guys are already back in the studio working on some epic new tracks with a serious resonance of some true legends, yet permeating a unique palette. Momentum has taken hold, we invite you to open your mind and your ears, kick back and be swept up with the Nostics ride.

Track Name: Broken Down
Broken Down…
On the side
On the road of your life…


Somebody help me, anyone help me
Somebody teach me what I need
Education, Tribulation
We’re never taught the way to be
More than that, we lost ourselves
Those honest words are sobering


I won’t let go of anything
Or what I know anymore
Truth is my only desire


Don’t feed me lies, Don’t feed me lies
It feels so right, feels so right
Angels gaze, upon this place
With a blank curiosity
There they go, 6 billion souls
Blinded by hypocrisy


Philosophize, tell me
Conceptualize, show me
What it is your world is made of


Education, Tribulation
We’re never taught the way to be
More than that, we lost ourselves
Those honest words are sobering
Those honest words are sobering
Those honest words are sobering
Track Name: Clarity
Take us away out of this so called world
No longer afraid listen to your whole hearts word
I want to enlighten our consciousness
Being truly alive is what we sometimes miss

Saints, Sinners, Prophets, Losers Winners
We are all of these, Lets break this endless mystery
Don’t believe what they said
Don’t let those lies stay in your head

And we will break free
From these chains of society
We won’t do what we’re supposed to
Don’t believe us well we’ll show you

And we’ll give away, all those things of yesterday
The truth is such a rarity, don’t let your life be a parody
And we’ll give away, all those things of yesterday
The truth is such a rarity, don’t let your life be a parody
Keep searching for some clarity

Take us away out of this so called world
No longer afraid listen to your whole hearts word
I want to enlighten our consciousness
Being truly alive is what we sometimes miss

Who’s a prophet but a mad man
No one listens but the sad man
Prisoner, set your mind free
Please take my hand to clarity

Come with me

Saints, Sinners, Prophets, Losers Winners
We are all of these, Lets break this endless mystery
Don’t believe what they said
Don’t let those lies stay in your head

And we will break free
From these chains of society
We won’t do what we’re supposed to
Don’t believe us well we’ll show you

And we’ll give away, all those things of yesterday
The truth is such a rarity, don’t let your life be a parody
And we’ll give away, all those things of yesterday
The truth is such a rarity, don’t let your life be a parody
Keep searching for some clarity
Track Name: Creature
Can you, feel me
Floating through, like a ghost
I’m not, the one
That you thought I was

Looking through myself in the mirror
I can see her pain I can hear her
Was it fate that set her free
Or was it me

Like a creature crawling to its den
I’m weak and weary, I’m broke again
I feel empty crying with the ghosts
Where’s the light here come shadows

She’s gone away, now she’s ascending
Please break me from this endless sleep

Like a creature crawling to its den
I’m weak and weary, I’m broke again
I feel empty crying with the ghosts
Where’s the light here come shadows

Here they come, Cover me
Cover me, Cover me…

Please break me from this endless sleep

Like a creature crawling to its den
I’m weak and weary, I’m broke again
I feel empty crying with the ghosts
Where’s the light here come shadows
Like a creature (4x)

Break me, shake me
Break me, shake me
Pray for me, Pray for me
From this endless sleep
This nightmare, this nightmare
Track Name: Prophecy
Huah, Come on Maggots!
Get in Line, You got it!

One, two, one two three
One, two, one two three
One, two, one two three

Here we go! Moving In!

Look at yourself, you’ve been decepted
Follow our lead and you’ll be corrected
Undeniable nature of this beast
Follow my words and hear our prophecy

March, March, March,
March, March, March,
Get on your feet and break these chains!
This shit’s not ok, come and break these chains!

You got it
Come on now, follow me!

So much greed and so much hate
So much fear and so much shame
A senseless fight with no aim
What are we doing, this shit’s insane!

Look at yourself, you’ve been decepted
Follow our lead and you’ll be corrected
Undeniable nature of this beast
Follow my words and hear our prophecy

March, March, March,
March, March, March,

This shit’s not ok, come and break these chains!

Alright, keep moving, this is the real deal!

Left, Left, Left Right Left
Left, Left, Left Right Left
Left, Left, Left Right Left

Give me a reason to live, reason to fight
Now lace up those boots cause you know it’s time
Like lambs to the slaughter they harvest our minds
Never lay down and keep on marching through the Night!

Look at yourself, you’ve been decepted
Follow our lead and you’ll be corrected
Undeniable nature of this beast
Follow my words and hear our prophecy

March, March, March,
March, March, March,
Get on your feet and break these chains!
This shit’s not ok, come and break these chains!
Track Name: Take A Chance
I can hear you shout
All alone in the dark
You cry away the hours
I go, And I go

What do you think I can do
What do you think I can say
To help you ease the pain
It’s yours, It’s yours

And you roll away lost in a daze
standing in the rain
Clench you teeth and shut your eyes
wishing for some better days
And broken beauty’s all that’s left
and you pretend it’s all ok
Come and breathe deep and let the
water wash over your pretty face

And I, have to go
And you, you have control

I can hear you shout
All alone in the dark
You cry away the hours
I go, And I go

What do you think I can do
What do you think I can say
To help you ease the pain
It’s yours, It’s yours

In the Silence of the night you can
dry your tears
Pick your head back up and let go
of all those years
Don’t be afraid of living life or what
we call death
Let your hearts desires run wild and then
Take a chance
Just Take A Chance
Track Name: Peter Pann
Well I’m not Peter Pann
And I ain’t gonna take you to Neverland
But follow my words if you think you can
And prepare to receive the master plan

Don’t walk aimlessly
You’re another piece of history
Another 1,000 years ain’t shit to me
Just another chance for these eyes to see

They want to kick me, They want to kiss me
They won’t believe, Someday they’ll miss me
I’m running round, This evil town
Don’t be amazed When I Burn It Down
Burn it down now, burn it down, burn it down

Well this ain’t a fantasy
You gotta show me something that’s real to me
Your minds stuck in a world of false reality
Bring down the walls and get a little BREAK FREE

I’m in a new dimension
No more mother fuckers looking for attention
Light speed thinking brings a new perception
Ten thousand miles to God’s reception

They want to kick me, They want to kiss me
They won’t believe, Someday they’ll miss me
They’re dirty games, You’re dirty games
That shit is driving me INSANE!
And I will drive, Away from here
Make this shit Disappear

They will knock you down, ya get back up
They will knock me down, I get back up
They will knock you down, ya get back up
They will knock me down, I get back up
They will knock you down, ya get back up
And WE WILL NOT STAY DOWN!

Ha, ha! Come on, come on!
Can you..feel me?! Well I told you!

Well I’m not Peter Pann
And I ain’t gonna take you to Neverland
But follow my words if you think you can
And prepare to receive the master plan

Don’t walk aimlessly
You’re another piece of history
Another 1,000 years ain’t shit to me
Just another chance for these eyes to see

They want to kick me, They want to kiss me
They won’t believe, Someday they’ll miss me
I’m running round, This evil town…..

They will knock you down, ya get back up
They will knock me down, I get back up
They will knock you down, ya get back up
They will knock me down, I get back up
They will knock you down, ya get back up
And WE WILL NOT STAY DOWN!
Track Name: Iscariot
Iscariot, Iscariot
Here’s the burden, Please carry it
From this prison, You’ll release us
Now go and bring me Pontius

We are a minority, In a
Market of antiquities, only
Humble uncertainty, as this
World remains a mystery

Iscariot, Iscariot
Here’s the burden, Please carry it
From this prison, You’ll release us
Now go and bring me Pontius


And we, need you
To release, and see through
Generations, of Blindness
And resurrect your consciousness


Justify to Crucify
I’m here for the sacrifice
Take the only man that clothes me
And your story will stay fast asleep

Iscariot, Iscariot
Here’s the burden, Please carry it
From this prison, You’ll release us
Now go and bring me Pontius

Thousands of years later, your Words will suddenly appear, after
Irenaeus tried save, their
Preservation of Blind Faith

Save me, Betray me
You’ll go down in history
Is that the way it’s supposed to be, well the
Only one who knows is He
Track Name: Galileo (feat. Mary)
Halo, are you sure
The stars don’t lie but mirrors do
Mirrors do

Look out, you are here
Embrace, Embrace

So anxious, So anxious
This place, in the vastness
Who’s wrong, who’s righteous
No one, and Everyone
So anxious

Galileo, Galileo, Galileo
Can you tell me now what we’ve won
Another day, another life, another way
Another one around the sun
Galileo, Galileo, Galileo

Listen to the madness, as it knocks on your door
And deny it again, until it is no more
Every corrupt one, and every saint
You aren’t too far away, you aren’t too far away

Now what, So what,
Now what, So what,
Now what, So So what

Galileo, Galileo, Galileo
Track Name: The Light
We are, we are, we are the ones
Who they, who they, will point the guns
Get in your place and shut your mouth

What will come out
They are afraid of what will come out
They are afraid of what will come out
They are afraid
The Light is Inside

The Light is Inside (3x)

I won’t go away
Won’t give over control
Over medicate
Yea I don’t think so

And you can shove it up your ass!
And you will not hijack
This body or this mind
Yea this is not your time
The systems gonna die
This is not your time
Look for the light

The Light is Inside (3x)


And you can shove it up your ass!
And you will not hijack

And you think you know me now
You don’t even know yourself somehow
Gotta find the light

We are, we are, we are the ones
Who they, who they, will point the guns
Get in your place and shut your mouth!

I won’t go away
Won’t give over control
Over medicate
Yea I don’t think so!

The Light is Inside (3x)
Track Name: System
And I bust a move
Everybody look when I say fuck you
Systematic Hypnotization
Just another drug from their creation

They must be out their minds
If they think my verbal attacks aren’t far behind
Bet cha think I was gonna forget
But I guarantee you ain’t seen nothing yet

I can’t stand this shit
It makes me so sick
So sick, ha
Can’t stand this shhh…

And I will wait
Atop this place
Let me move
All over you

It’s all about control, come on!
Everybody, everybody, everybody knows
Slanted politician
Soon realize your time is time is ticking

Thanks a lot for my pittance
While I’m organizing the mass resistance
And I’m done today?!
My time is over, no future no pay?! What?!

I can’t stand this shit
It makes me so sick
So sick, ha
Can’t stand this shhh…

And I will wait
Atop this place

Well I got to go
Giving you the word but you said “I know”
Ohh hey a law degree
White picket fence, happy happy family

Let me move
All over you

Well if you think you can
Throw away your back up plan
Grab this blue pill from my hand
And come join me on our last stand

This…is…your last chance
Be..lieve…come with me
Come with me
This is yours
Now come and get it
We are here
we are here, It’s our time
This is it, It’s our time
Wake up out, Of your dream
Come with me, To my Reality
Track Name: Journey Man
Wherever you may go, well
They will always know, and
You will not be fine
Till you read between the lines
(Repeat)

I am, Knowing
Journey Man, Trying to Be

I was lifeless
Born into this eternal abyss
Can you caress my soul
Traveling to some points unknown
Heya, Where you going now
Winds of change
Keep falling down (3x)

They won’t let go
Powers in their eyes
They won’t let go
Never let go

I…..get….lost…another way
I…..get….lost….another day
Don’t…..tell me

Wherever you may go, well
They will always know, and
You will not be fine
Till you read between the lines
(Repeat)

Despair’s just a passing dream
Who knows what the future will bring
Wizard of my heart, come speak to me
And lead me where I’m supposed to be
Seek, You shall find
Listen, To the memory

They won’t let go
Powers in their eyes
They won’t let go
Never let go

I….get…lost…another way CHORUS
I….get…lost…another day
Don’t…tell me (3x)
Track Name: Drunken Ambition
Take it away
Out of my hands
I cannot live
I’m just one man

Pinned against the wall
And I am falling down
I cannot help myself again
Now I will crawl back up
Out of this lonely mud
This river pulls me back again

Take it away
Out of my hands
I wanna live

Pinned against the wall
And I am falling down
I cannot help myself again
Now I will crawl back up
Out of this lonely mud
This river pulls me back again

Take it away
Out of my hands
I wanna live

Pinned against the wall
And I am falling down
I cannot help myself again
Now I will crawl back up
Out of this lonely mud
This river pulls me back again


Pinned against the wall
And I am falling down
I cannot help myself again
Now I will crawl back up
Out of this lonely mud
This river pulls me back again
Track Name: I Go Blind
Here we go on a journey of our souls
Walking through the valley of death I become whole
Looking forward I see the light
And I go Blind

Confusion, Dilution, Disaster, is our master
This is the state of the 21st Century
How can it be…
This is not me

I come around and I go back again
Searching for truth, in the darkness I get frightened
I hear the echoes of my past…
But they won’t last

I am here, I am there
I am nearly everywhere
My mind runs, it runs so fast
Has so many things to ask
What we’re doing, what we’re told
Is it truth, no, it’s getting old
I can’t take this anymore
Wanna put them on the floor
On their ass, on their face
Doesn’t matter just get outa place
This is coming just in time
Knock em down and free your mind
Ecstasy, Enlighten me
Give me, Immortality

Here we go on a journey of our souls
Walking through the valley of death I become whole
Looking forward I see the light
And I go Blind

I go Blind
Close your eyes
Open your mind
Track Name: Take A Chance Revamped
I can hear you shout
All alone in the dark
You cry away the hours
I go, And I go

What do you think I can do
What do you think I can say
To help you ease the pain
It’s yours, It’s yours

And you roll away lost in a daze
standing in the rain
Clench you teeth and shut your eyes
wishing for some better days
And broken beauty’s all that’s left
and you pretend it’s all ok
Come and breathe deep and let the
water wash over your pretty face

And I, have to go
And you, you have control

I can hear you shout
All alone in the dark
You cry away the hours
I go, And I go

What do you think I can do
What do you think I can say
To help you ease the pain
It’s yours, It’s yours

In the Silence of the night you can
dry your tears
Pick your head back up and let go
of all those years
Don’t be afraid of living life or what
we call death
Let your hearts desires run wild and then
Take a chance
Just Take A Chance
