Cry Before Dawn
Cry Before Dawn first formed in 1982, and fuse guitar driven rock with traditional Irish pipes and whistles to create a uniquely powerful and dynamic sound
The band has 2 Double Platinum selling albums to their name as well as prestigious national awards. These include “Best Newcomer” in 1987 and “Irelands Best Band” in 1989, reflecting the huge popularity of the band across the country
Their reputation for passionate and driven performances grew through their extensive live work in Ireland, the UK and the USA, and saw them sell out Irelands National Stadium on two occasions.
Having parted company for many years, Cry Before Dawn reformed in 2011 which coincided with the release of a “best of” CD, followed by a new single “Is This what you Waited For” and a new live album, “Live at the Opera House” as well as tours of Ireland and the UK
2017 saw the reformation of the original band, with Tony Hall re-joining on guitar. The newly enthused band played a series of festivals and shows over the summer of 2017, culminating in a packed homecoming gig at the Wexford Spiegeltent
The band are currently rehearsing and working on new material for a 2019 release and are finalising details for their live scheduleFor updates on what CRY BEFORE DAWN are up to , follow us on Facebook: www.facebook.com/CryBeforeDawn or Twitter: @CryBeforeDawn
