Sydney quartet Fifth Dawn are set to bring their explosive brand of melodic metal across Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne for their ‘Closer’ February 2024 East Coast tour. Featuring exhilarating fretwork, vibrant synths, cinematic orchestral arrangements, and a groove-oriented rhythm section bolstering Sam Faul’s powerhouse vocals, the group delivers infectious melodies akin to Evanescence and Flyleaf.

Renowned for their introspective and emotionally charged compositions, Fifth Dawn have continued to captivate audiences globally since the release of their debut album ‘Duality’ (2018). The band’s resurgent popularity is undeniable, as evidenced by their recent single launch at the Oxford Art Factory, Sydney and their appearance at Thrashville Festival alongside Australian veterans COG and Mammal.Additionally, Fifth Dawn‘s music has found its place in editorial playlists on major streaming platforms such as Spotify with over 11 million+ streams, Apple Music, Amazon, and AWA
