Stay Awake has already been featured on BBC Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter, as well as in Kerrang Magazine and Kerrang Radio with Alex Baker, while according to Metal Hammer Germany and Kerrang Magazine, Fixation are regarded as one of the most promising international newcomers! More singles and debut album coming in 2022.
With an exceptional vocal performance from Jonas Hansen combined with heavy guitar riffs, drums and electronic elements, Stay Awake truly captures their listeners in a wonderful mixture of the raw, beautiful and heavy.
“Stay Awake is a dark and mysterious song with tons of energy and rage, but at the same time, it has a longing and melancholy character”, Guitarist Martin Selen states about the track.
The lyrics to Stay Awake arose after the storming of the congress in America, where Fixation felt a need to express their thought around the event. The song evolved to speak up against ignorance, hate and injustice, and with this Fixation wish to bring more attention to double standards that contribute to an unsafe and divided world.
“Stay Awake speaks up against the hypocritical way some people view today’s society. A lot of people choose to be blind to situations they don’t want to face. While turning away from injustice, they focus instead on what’s most beneficial for themselves. It also brings up how a lot of people fight a revolution that they really don’t know what’s about.” Vocalist Jonas Hansen says.

Fixation is a brand-new melodic metalcore band from Norway who freely combine electronic elements with stadium rock and metal. Catchy riffs, dynamic melodious synthesizers, heavy bass, and drum rhythms make them a roller coaster of melancholic aggression. With earnest lyrics and a refreshing take on social criticism they convey an interpretation of current affairs in their writing. Whenever the music reaches the depths of it’s beautiful and soft vulnerability, you’re abruptly hurled back up again by aggressive riffs and bass lines. The result is compelling and massive music that appeals to a generation rather than to fans of one specific genre.
Their debut EP Global Suicide was released fall of 2020 and has received an impressive international response in both the press and the streaming services. “…simply an impressive debut! If this had been a full-fledged album, it would very much have reached Album of the Year lists.” - Norway Rock Magazine. Metal Hammer Norway were also very much impressed and stated; “Sounds like a million dollars. There is so much talent here that it is almost touching, and what an amazing vocalist this band has in Jonas Hansen! It is simply a revelation. Wow !!”
