In the summer of 2004, friend of the band and occasional guest vocalist Laurie Johnson was invited to fill the role of lead singer on a permanent basis. Not long after, the line-up was complete, with Carlin being re-instated (after a long period spent away with his own band, the now split-up Zulu) in place of an interim guitarist after it became apparent she no longer wanted to carry on. A few months later, what with all the changes being rung, the dawn of a new, more settled era was signalled with the eventual decision on the name Red Dawn.
The quartet draw on a number of musical influences. From artists such as Guns N’ Roses, Queen, Red Hot Chili Peppers and more recently The Who and Pink Floyd, they combine these styles to create songs that should appeal to people with similar tastes in music to theirs.
Original lyrics and skillfull bass riffs are the cornerstone of their sound, with impressive guitar and drum work complimenting these to great effect.
The band were on something of a hiatus at due to University commitments, a hiatus which can now be said to be indefinite.
There have been mini-reunions since. An open mic slot in March 2010 saw the band (minus Glover on drums) perform 3 of their songs acoustically in Vodka Revolution in Bath.
Later that year in October, the band (plus Chris Hootton on 2nd guitar) reunited to play a set comprised of 20 covers at the same venue at the request of the Bath Chinese Society.
They returned to Bath in 2012 to repeat the performance, this time with Ben Riseborough replacing Hootton on guitar.
