Opening the main stage on Saturday, June 12th at this year's Download Festival was Roadrunner newcomers Taking Dawn. Unleashing their hard and heavy tirade at 11am, warming and waking up a very hungover crowd, the energetic quartet successfully rocked Donington Park.

In the aftermath, Roadrunner caught up with guitarist Mikey Cross sidestage to hear all about the experience. Watch the video clip below to see some footage of the performance, and of course what Mikey had to say.
