Dawn of Desolation Working On New Material

Dawn of Desolation is now writing new material and has issued an update about it:

"I just want to take a second to let everyone know of our whereabouts and future plans. After releasing our self-recorded Free EP (TEOAGE) a few months ago, and playing it out for quite a while now, we've arrived at the next point writing-wise.

"Our music is changing and fast (we are already playing material that is in-the-works for the next release)! Influences are now coming through in a manner that allows us be ourselves a little bit more. This is an awesome thing for us due to everyone in the group having such a wide taste in music.

"We plan to 'lighten up' on the shows for a little while as we have begun the writing process once more and want to dedicate all our time and focus to that. When back, we plan to venture further out and tour in the near future.
We'd also love to say 'THANK YOU' to anyone and everyone who comes out to shows, enjoys and/or hates the music, as well as to the GREAT GREAT bands we've shared stages with! It is because of all these things that we are putting so much effort in; time-wise, financially, and artistically."
