Awake By Design由主唱Adrian Powell和吉他手Toby Stewart共同创立。乐队发行了两张完整的录音室专辑，分别在BBC，kerrang和Metal Hammer上演奏单曲。乐队支持并巡回了许多不同类型的金属和岩石乐队，例如：叶眼，救恩之痛，我垂死的新娘，阿纳瑟玛，天启，钻石头，奏鸣曲，昆塔斯切奇，泛汤加·蒂格斯，La亵狂，弯曲空中，铁砧，力量探索，魔幻，永恒之宝等等。从上述演唱会和巡回演出中获得的经验，最终在2013年夏天的“血腥音乐节”上进行了Awake By Design的演出。从2010年开始，这一盛大的曝光使Awake By Design成为2011年中部地区摇滚评论家“ Claire Frays”的顶级乐队。
