A Red Dawn Announces New Lineup

Australian metal band A Red Dawn has issued the following update regarding their recent lineup changes:

"So, as you should already know, since Adam and Greg left A Red Dawn we haven't really played a lot of shows with our new line up. And with good reason."

"Picking up the pieces where Adam and Greg left off was not an easy task as it is not exactly easy to replace musicians of that calibre.
