Bio

Fifth Dawn was formed in November 2014. The members all hailing from Performing Arts High Schools representing Nepean Creative & Performing Arts High School (Ethan, Mark & Jamie) and Newtown High School of the Performing Arts (Samantha).

They began experimenting with different sounds and combining their individual influences into their writing which allowed them to create a unique and innovative heavy alternative rock/metal sound (for fans of Flyleaf, Evanescence & Paramore). In the early stages the band collaborated with Richie Newman of Buried In Verona who produced their debut EP 'The Horizon' in April 2015.

In 2015, Fifth Dawn were Triple J Unearthed High Finalists following the release of their debut single 'Turbulence'. 'Turbulence' had sold more than 5000 copies in the second half of 2015 after making its radio debut on Triple J. During this time the band had opened for Hands Like Houses, Columbus and Far Away Stables playing shows in Melbourne and Sydney. 'The Horizon' generated over 500,000 plays on Spotify.

In September 2017, Fifth Dawn released 'Pressure' in announcement of an album to come. 'Pressure' was added to rotation on Triple J Unearthed and had seen its time on Triple J. 'Pressure' was well received by the YouTube Community and with various AMV versions created by anonymous fans - received huge play counts pushing the track worldwide.

The second single 'Defying Symmetry' from their debut album 'Duality' was released with the bands first ever music video on March 30 2018.

'Duality' was released on April 27 2018 with its third single release 'It's Cold Outside'.

BIG BIG BIG BIG BIG. Some clever dynamics and some moments where you pull it back but when you go... you really go. Hope you're as good live as you are on this record because there's gonna be some kids at your shows with high hopes now!
