Founder and Lead Vocalist of the Wake, Troy Payne

Perfumes and Fripperies is the latest full length album by the Wake in nearly 25 years.

Recorded over many months in different locations and various circumstances, the album will not disappoint long time fans and new fans.  Perfumes and Fripperies  has been called “both their best album to date” while also honoring their legacy  with themes like isolation, unrequited love, madness, multiple personality disorder, purgatory, loss, and regret – the album’s lyrical content is decidedly dark and introspective and diverse.
