2 A.M. Wakeup Call is the second album from the band Tweaker. Opposed to The Attraction to All Things Uncertain, this album captures emotional, human performances and instrumentation - notably live drums, acoustic guitar, piano and glockenspiels. It's a nighttime record about dreams, nightmares, and insomnia—things that keep us up at night.

2 a.m. Wakeup Call was subsequently released in 5.1 Surround Sound.

The track It's Still Happening was offered to the ACIDplanet community for remixing as a part of the Tweaker 2 Remix contest.
