Having sold out a small stack of 7” releases and CDEPs on their own Cherub Records, Richmond’s A NEW DAWN FADES is set to release their album, I See the Nightbirds, on the Alone and NFI imprints this fall. The instrumental Richmond duo has been known for sticking hard to the road, where they’ve gained a reputation for wowing audiences with their improvisational and experimental performances. No stiff limbed scarecrows on stage, the band forces the audience to take an interactive part in the music, throwing out makeshift instruments like pots, bits of sheet metal or car parts, the clamor of which, in no small way, influences the direction of the band’s improvisational pieces. The boundaries between the performer and the audience are further blurred as both musicians often walk among the crowd, playing along with, and conducting the makeshift orchestra. Be warned: at an A NEW DAWN FADES show no unwitting audience member is safe from direct involvement in the performance.
