Las Vegas rockers Taking Dawn have returned to the US after a long trek throgh Europe where they hit the festival circuit following an arena run with KISS and are getting back to business.

Having just released their debut album Time to Burn this winter, these young metal-loving dudes know a thing or two about being in the studio, so guitarist Mikey Cross is taking his turn in the producer's chair "coaching" and "nurturing" aspiring musicians.

Head to takingdawn.com to see what we ever so sarcastically mean as Uncle Mikey's hilarious temper flairs during an otherwise simple session of recording Alice in Chains' "We Die Young" with the singer of Vegas area band Saint Rose.
