Formed in January of 2009 in Berkeley, California, STRETFORD END quickly built up a strong local following with their explosively intense live performances and were soon selling out shows in Berkeley and San Francisco, CA. In March 2009, the band relocated to Hollywood, California and just a few short weeks later, found themselves playing at legendary venues The Roxy, The Viper Room, The Knitting Factory and The Troubadour.
They also caught the attention of producer Gus Cryns (The Academy Is, Panic! At The Disco) who helped produce and record their next EP, "Prelude", which was released on iTunes Worldwide, Rhapsody, Amazon, Napster and eMusic in May 2010.
"Stay Awake" is a heavy ballad, and the third track on their "Prelude" EP.
