DAWN FADES To Release Sophomore Album, ‘Ode’ September 10, 2021

on Metal Assault Records

New Music Video for Album Track “Taste” + Pre-orders Arrive June 25th

Los Angeles CA post-metal group DAWN FADES will release their sophomore album Ode, September 10, 2021. Ode will be available on vinyl, CD and all digital platforms via Metal Assault Records. The first single and music video “Taste” premieres June 25th, along with the pre-order launch of the album in all aforementioned formats.

Comprising six songs spanning ethereal experimentation and crushing heaviness, Ode shows a band unshaken by the pandemic induced time away from the stage. The new offering reveals DAWN FADES as now more resolute in their vision and execution. Mixed by heavy music mainstay Josh Newell (Intronaut, Anthrax, Linkin Park), Ode manages to be both more mature and more raw than the band’s critically acclaimed self-titled 2019 debut. While expertly retaining the core elements of their highly successful debut; DAWN FADES take their musical evolution to even greater heights on Ode, undoubtedly leaving an even stronger impression on listeners.

Frontman and songwriter Sam Sherwood says the album is “a picture of feelings about the trappings of the world we find ourselves in. I believe we are doing a thing that has its own life to it. There is darkness and screaming inner-torment and there are ear-worm hooks.”

LA Weekly describes DAWN FADES as “a mashup of Deftones and Neurosis, with hints of Eyehategod and Enslaved.” Ode will be available to pre-order June 25, 2021 with the official album release slated for September 10, 2021.”

1. Dearth (8:17)

2. Taste (5:11)
