Of the track, Jacky says, “This is my new single entitled ‘Awakener’ from my upcoming album ‘Life Imitating Art’! My first solo release in 5 years. I had a blast crossing Metal, Electronic, neo-classical and fusion styles all into one track! Share/repost this track, tag all your friends and crank it up!
In anticipation of the album’s release, Jacky will embark on his first solo US Tour, which kicks off on September 4 in Oklahoma City. See dates below.

Vincent’s unbelievable, outrageous and over the top guitar style was on full display as a former member of Falling In Reverse (Epitaph Rcords) from 2009-2015. Chart-topping releases such as ‘The Drug In Me Is You’, ‘Fashionably Late’ and ‘Just Like You’ shot Vincent into the mainstream and he was quickly heralded as one of today’s top young super shredders.
Legendary Shrapnel Records (responsible for the rise of guitar gods Yngwie Malmsteen, Paul Gilbert and Jason Becker to name a few) named Jacky “one of the worlds greatest new technicians” and released his debut guitar album ‘Star X Speed Story’ in 2013.
With accolades such as AP Magazine’s Guitar Player of the Year 2012, Guitar World’s 3rd Best Shredder/Shred Album 2013 and his own Dean signature series guitar under his belt, Vincent moved on to form the metal group Cry Venom.
The virtuosic metal entourage have since released their debut album ‘Vanquish The Demon’ and kicked off the Loudpark Festival playing the Saitama Super Arena in Japan, warming the stage for metal and rock heavyweights such as Alice Cooper, Meshuggah and Devin Townsend.
With the upcoming release of his sophomore solo album, Jacky shows no signs of slowing down. Catch him live on tour this year, an awe-inspiring show you will not want to miss!
