Album Notes
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.

NS - Punk Planet

DC-influenced post-hardcore
A two-man instrumental wrecking machine. Great late '80s, DC-influenced post-hardcore a la Ignition, Rites of Spring or early Jawbox. Fitting that Inner Ear impresario Don Zientara [helped] mixed these songs; the semi-roughness of the recording gives it that genuine sound. Another great instrumental band where I wish there was a vocalist.

Sarah Zachrich

Sounds Pressed into Texture is a quick and impressive assault
"ANDF experiment with sound, putting sections of songs through filters and abruptly cutting off notes with effects. It's all quite judiciously used, though, so it sounds like Sykes actually had a certain result in mind rather than a consuming urge to try out his newest effects pedal."

Alex Baia

Sounds Pressed into Texture an ambient garage rock album
"Eventually, you tend to stop paying complete attention to Sounds Pressed into Texture and just sort of lose yourself in the music. The whole album starts to feel like a wave washing over you and engulfing you. At only seventeen minutes, it's quite easy to let this one play on repeat many, many times and never tire of it. I know I did. And at some point, I suppose you start realize that this album isn't all that typical after all."
