Daze of Dawn is superb, original rock music – funky grooves of rock, grunge, metal, folk-rock and blues. It hits you like a raging tsunami, only to soothe you like your mother’s milk.
They are also the Grand Prize Winners of Sona La Dipu Pop-Rock contest 2012….which has been getting them a lot of attention.
Based in Valencia Spain, this “Canadian”, alternative, retro-rock band has been stunning audiences for over a decade with their legendary live shows and breath of originality. ¨Canadian¨ because the singer and guitarist (Claude Robillard) is from Canada and so sings in ¨real¨ English, giving the band a distinctly north-american sound. Formed when Claude (or Klyde) arrived in Spain in 2001, after some years living and performing in Japan, DOD have toured throughout Spain, and Europe and continue to take over the world one audience at a time.
Daze of Dawn´s lively arrangements, subtle details and continued growth on their 4 previous releases – Shinjuku In June (2001), Puppet Heads (2003), Drug Testing (2006) and Yeti Nation (2008) – have won the band continuous accolades from the media and critics alike, including winning them spots in major international festivals (Festimad, Viñarock) and national Spanish radio (RNE3) and television (TVE Los conciertos de Radio 3). Most recently DOD were finalists in MTV Winter Valencia 2011 and grand prize winners of Sona La Dipu 2012, a major Spanish rock contest. 2013 heralds the much anticipated release of the new album SOFA KING COOL and festival slots like the LOW COST FESTIVAL in Benidrom Spain.
