A Fight At Daybreak

A Fight At Daybreak

Genres: Hardcore, Metal, Screamo
Web site:

Coming together as a bunch of friends just trying to have fun in '08, the project took a professional turn in ‘09 and A Fight At Daybreak emerged onto the local scene. Mixing the mainstream post-hardcore sound with their own touch, screaming solos and catchy choruses, AFAD brings a new and yet reminiscent metal sound to the Vegas scene. Formed by singer Shea Carpenter-Lord, guitarist Michael Mutzhaus, and former members Shane Evans (bassist, current- Jillian Danae) and Jake Padilla (guitar), the band worked its way through the typical struggles and obstacles facing a band until it found its current powerhouse of a line-up with Kevin Torres on bass, Austin Rooney on drums and Oscar Frias on guitar. After recording four songs at Love Juice Labs in December 2009, attention came its way, earning it a much coveted spot on the Extreme Thing 2010 local stage, a spot over 100 bands signed up for. They plan to push it even farther in 2010.
