The original lineup of the German metal band DARK AT DAWN has reformed. On October 1, the group will release a new EP in digital form, as well as a very limited amount of physical copies, to be sold at their upcoming shows.
In 2013, DARK AT DAWN will celebrate its 20th anniversary with a new full-length album and a number of festival appearances.
DARK AT DAWN disbanded in 2007 after 14 years and five albums. It was too difficult for the members to handle the band as well as their day jobs. After several setbacks, including lineup changes and business problems, they lost the motivation to continue as band.
In the beginning of the 21th century, the Harz-Mountain-based band was called one of the most promising newcomer of the German scene. Shows at Wacken Open Air, Summer Breeze and the Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig raised their profile and their debut record, “Baneful Skies”, won praise from the print media. They managed to mix up traditional and modern metal sounds with a unique touch melancholy.
Now, five years after their disbanding, the five musicians decided that the time has come to get back together with new energy and dozens of new ideas.
