After releasing his critical acclaimed debut LP in last summer, TOMIKA is back for 2015 with something special.

This release includes two new songs, written at the end of 2014 after TOMIKA got back from a summer spent in North Africa. Inspired by the beauty of the people he met while traveling Tom directly started writing new music when back home, always having in mind the latest events of arab spring and the contrast dividing this continent. These two songs are a part of a concept, including several more releases, videos, remixes and information - as well a new live show starting in summer 2015.

EVERYTHING THAT RISES is the name of this idea, a plan spanning over several releases strongly linked to the intense experience of traveling through North Africa and the spirit of revolution and a new beginning.

I CAN'T GO BACK HOME AGAIN is telling the story of someone who has lost everything in life except his loved ones - but he finds himself unable to face them and bear the consequences of his actions. In the end he decides to better run away instead of showing a sense of responsibility.

SUMMER SONG continues directly from where the former song ended with the narrator starting to blame his loved ones for his suffering and his loss and sets about ending everything with a final confession..

Track Name: I Can't Go Back Home Again
this is how the men get separated by glory
and this is how i ever tried again
harder than the others to find my way back for you
longing for your hands to hold my chin

i can't deny what i've done to you
if i ever go back home again
back home to you and i fight it through
if i ever go

if ever one would sing about the one's been blasted
songs about all glory have been sung
but this one's written for all of you fighting in troubles
making sure the hardest part of your way has begun

and so i cover my eyes from the light of the morning sun
a cold-blooded daylight keeps striking my head
and when i try to get back onto my feet it's breaking my neck
and again i go down to see that

i can't deny what i've come to do
if i ever go back home again
back home to you and i fight it trough
if i ever go

back home again
Track Name: Summer Song
come again every night
heat wave, summer time
dusk and dawn
dust flies
i hope you'd be fine
in the end i see
you get what you need
can't stay with me
make believe you're sorry

come again every night
heat, hate, summer time
dusk and dawn
dust flies
i wish i could die
but in the end i agree
you're all that i need
but you can't stand me
don't make believe you're sorry

it's not like i wait for the end of july
i never think about, don't speak about
it's all just a lie
and i can still die for myself
with no reason in hell
for this treason i tell
