It's not really a debate that last Christmas I has some amazing presents. I got some coloured Judas Priest vinyl, some Rise Against, Nikki Sixx's photography book and lots of chocolate. But one thing I hadn't realised was that this year I would have a late present. Wake Up Hate officially became a band and released their debut single 'The Cycle' on Christmas Eve, but I'd been too caught up in the festivities to hear it. When I did hear it, it changed a lot of things, namely my perception of debut singles. These guys hadn't just hashed out a first song to get there name out there. They were shooting for the stars from the get go.
