CRAVITY The Awakening

Marking a new phase for the group following three previous releases since debuting, this full-length album is meant to showcase the trajectory of their artistic strengths in performance and songwriting as they mature, going beyond that of their “super rookie” title.

With each body of work CRAVITY releases, they’ve portrayed their journey to overcoming hardships and pain while uniting together as one in the “new world” they’ve created. This is also a depiction of how the boys understand and accept the differences amongst themselves while finding their fate together as a group.

Throughout [The Awakening: Written In The Stars], the theme of the “stars” implies the strong bond between the members and their fans that they can rely on during difficult times. It contains the message of going forward without stopping, overcoming the external oppression and insurmountable walls.

Celebrate CRAVITY’s impressive achievement by watching their music video for “Gas Pedal”!
