New Dawn Fades is the new Philadelphia based project from current Ritual Earth vocalist and ex-Halo Of Snakes guitarist, George Chamberlin aka GFA, which is being described as heavy psych riff rock. The band combines elements of doom, hard rock, grunge, and punk and cites bands such as Kyuss, Soundgarden, Danzig, The Cult, Black Flag, Mötley Crüe, and Goatsnake amongst others as influences. Since the bands inception, New Dawn Fades has added guitarist Corey Pettingill (Blackhand, Cobra Whip) on guitar and Rob Avery (Boy Sets Fire, Son & Heir) on bass, with a full time drummer to named later.
“While the band name and cover art might have you conjuring visions of Joy Division-influenced post-punk of some sort, in fact you’ll be greeted by a brand of sludgy-yet-propulsive “stoner rock” that very much brings to mind »Deliverance« era C.O.C. I mean, if you can’t imagine Pepper Keenan belting out the chorus of »True Till Death«, I don’t know what the hell you’re listening to! Very strong writing all around: great riffs, forceful builds into memorable choruses, and relatively straightforward and to-the-point without being overly simplistic. I had been following this undertaking on Instagram and was curious, but I have to confess this is even better than I might have anticipated.” – Aversion Online
