Having just returned from an overseas tour with KISS, Las Vegas’ Taking Dawn are excited to announce a string of tour dates with legendary rock icon Slash

With a sound that is both fast and fresh, Taking Dawn successfully uses the 80’s sound to create a foundation for their thoroughly modern take on the genre: shredding, soloing and incorporating sophisticated melody into their metal.  Time to Burn is an artful fusion of their bygone influences with contemporary skill and playful “screw you” attitude. 

The band recently shot a video for their unique take on Fleetwood Mac’s classic, “The Chain,” with director Ramon Boutviseth (Trivium, Dream Theater) in Las Vegas.

Tour dates are below:

8/29 @ The Warfield Theatre, San Francisco CA

8/31 @ Belly Up, Aspen CO

9/1 @ Ogden Theatre, Denver CO

9/2 @ Voodoo Lounge, Kansas City MO

9/5 @ Pabst Theater, Milwaukee WI

9/6 @ Surf Ballroom, Surf Lake IA


These dates will be followed by another tour that will be announces shortly.

“An incendiary cauldron of fist-pumping, fiery heavy metal that could be the perfect middle ground between early Metallica's thrash vitriol and Rush's melodic power-prog.” - ARTISTdirect

“The quartet have a big, bold, seemingly unstoppable sound that mines Guns N’ Roses, Avenged Sevenfold, Skid Row and Pantera without resorting to mimicry.” -Metal Hammer

“Arena-rock anthems…tailor made for those who keep a steady flow of commercial rock radio flowing into their ears and can't help but to sing along to each song.” -- Blabbermouth.net
