Light It Up
A Rock and A Hard Place is AKOG's debut album. AKOG's sound rings loud across the tracks of the album, all of which meet at the crossroads of rock, punk and pop. The album's name "A Rock and a Hard Place" takes from the songs being connected by an overarching theme of facing choices, those that you face on a journey towards something worth achieving. A significant part of being human is the struggle of making difficult choices about love, as in the 2nd track 'circles', about fighting for dreams, as in the album closer 'Light It Up', or about choosing and standing by your beliefs, in 'Monkey (In The Middle)'. A Rock and a Hard Place is about dilemmas, and it is the musical navigation of our own choices which have led to us reaching where we are now.
