In 2017 they shortened their name to ALAZKA, which better described their music style and personality. Soon after the band caught the attention of American label SharpTone Records, releasing their debut album »Phoenix« in September alongside German label Arising Empire in Europe.
Since the release of »Phoenix« the band has seen substantial growth. They co-headlined a near completely sold out European tour w/ We Came As Romans, as well as their first Japan headline tour and moved up the ranks on festival billing and support tours.
»Dead End« marks a new chapter for the band. “The song is about inevitable change and the way you can decide how you want to deal with it” says bassist Julian Englisch. “We all come to points in our lives where things need to happen and it’s up to us to run away from it or face it head on.”
