|The Awakening chronology|
Request is the second album by South African Gothic rock band The Awakening released during April 1998. Taking a step towards the New Romantic sound, Request brought the band more exposure and club rotation with three singles as well as their first music video for "Rain."
A calmer, mellower and darker album than its predecessor, Request's singles "Maree", "Rain" and "Before I Leap" saw much success with radio and club rotation. A music video was shot for "Rain" by director Katinka Harrod. In March 1999, the album was re-released on Intervention Arts with the bonus track "The Safety Dance," a cover of the hit by the 1980s synthpop band Men Without Hats.
