About Savage After Midnight.
Dogged perseverance and unyielding determination are
qualities shared by countless bands struggling to break out from their hometown
club scene and onto the arena stage.
Memphis, Tennessee quintet Savage After Midnight have exhibited far more
patience and dedication than most as they’ve geared up for their debut EP
release, “11:59” on RED Music/The Century Family on March 8th, 2019.
Since the band members formed in 2009, Savage After Midnight
have been sidetracked by an obligatory name change, a studio fire, scrapped
recordings from different producers, a crippling lawsuit they had nothing to do
with and an 11th hour record label change.
We’ve been put through the wringer, man,” says vocalist Shi. “We’ve
totally been fed through it. If it’s true that what doesn’t kill us makes us
stronger than we must be the strongest band in the world.”
The years of trial and error, and even more years of being
uprooted and returning to square one made Savage After Midnight a more
professional band, improving their chemistry and allowing them to fine tune
their presentation both live and in the studio. The band connected with
producer John Falls (Egypt Central) and recorded what would become the “11:59”
EP. The band’s “work-hard-by-day, rock-harder-by-night” ethos is poured into a
collection of songs that are an energized, emotional introduction to musicians
that desperately want to make a mark, but only on their own terms. S.A.M. music
is aggressive, but still has pop sensibilities. The tracks are colored by
galvanic hard rock passages, a contrast of screamed melodies and soaring hooks,
and it’s augmented by electronic segments that give the band a modern edge.
“10 Feet Tall,” the first single and video release from the
EP is already making inroads at SiriusXm Octane and Music Choice. It’s anthemic and energizing, building from a
melodic verse, through a propulsive bridge and into an unforgettable chorus.
“Unleash,” the opening cut on the EP, is a message of empowerment in the face of
adversity, driven forward by steady backbeats, chugging guitars and electronic
effects. “Heartless Machine” is an intense song about soldiers who are sent to
war and desensitized, trained so that they will obey commands that civilians
never have to contemplate.
Savage After Midnight has toured with Shinedown, Sick
Puppies, and Story of the Year. They are
setting up the release of “11:59” with a leg of East Coast dates opening for
Pop Evil. More tour dates are being
confirmed, and the band also has additional songs recorded for another EP to be
released in late 2019 or early 2020.
Living up to the band’s name, leader Shi admits: “We all
like to get wild. There’s something
savage about us when it comes to throwing down and partying – it’s just who we
are. We work really hard, but at the end of the day we’re down for a good time.
We’ll put on whatever work hat we have to, but once it strikes midnight it’s
our time and it’s time to tear it up.” 2019 will be the year that Savage After
Midnight tears through the rock world and at long last, makes it mark.
About Taking Dawn.
The band was originally named 7th Son in tribute to the
iconic Iron Maiden album Seventh Son of a Seventh Son before calling themselves
The band signed to major American record label Roadrunner
Records in 2009. Taking Dawn toured throughout 2010 and performed alongside
Airbourne, Kiss, Slash, Trivium, All That Remains, Halestorm, DragonForce and
Theory of a Deadman among others. Taking Dawn also performed at many festivals
including Download in Europe and Soundwave in Australia.
In late 2010 drummer Alan Doucette left the band due to
trouble on the road and was replaced by Carlo Mazzone. In 2013, guitarist Mikey
Cross announced on his personal Facebook account that the band was finished and
its members were all pursuing different musical ventures, however this was not
acknowledged nor corroborated by the rest of the band.
Taking Dawn has since re-branded themselves under the new
moniker Devils Run and released a number of new songs including "Burn the
Night Out" and "Secrets".
