Cape Town’s With Dawn have been garnering a growing momentum of respect from their local metal community for their very different approach towards the metal genre, which, at first seemed to behold a very death and thrash orientated scene rather confused. The band has spent the last three months at 7 String Studios in Durbanville recording their debut full-length titled Infinity, which follows in the wake of an earlier EP in 2012, Came The Gulls. ‘The Fool’, now released as preview track, offers fans and critics a taste of what is to come when the full album is launched on 07 November.
“Infinity will include re-recorded tracks that were previously available on Came the Gulls, but will host quite a few previously unrecorded tracks, and ‘The Fool’ is one of those. This album is full of everything fans have come to expect from With Dawn. We felt that ‘The Fool’ is a good song to showcase all the dips and dives consistent with how we approach song-writing, and that’s why we decided to release it first.” ~ Kevin Rule (vocals and guitar, With Dawn)
The album launch on 07 November will take place at Mercury Live with support from OhGod, an instrumental progressive rock band whose live sound is surprisingly heavy and quite ethereal. See the facebook event page for full details, and you can also follow With Dawn at their own facebook page.
