Taking Dawn announce UK tour

Las Vegas rockers, Taking Dawn have announced a return to the UK in February 2011.

After an exciting start to 2010, supporting label mates Airbourne on their sold-out UK run, but also rock legends KISS on their massive UK arena tour, the band were last seen here opening the main stage at this summer’s Download Festival.   Since then they’ve also gone on to do shows with Murderdolls and Slash in the US, and their video for ‘The Chain’ has been all over Scuzz TV, Kerrang! TV and Lava’s music channel in the UK.   A timely return to Blighty seemed only appropriate.

Frontman Chris Babbitt is excited for the band’s return to these shores, enthusing; “If it wasn’t for the UK fans I’d be at the end of my rope, making swing music.  We LOVE you fuckers and it’s about time we made it back across the pond to sex you up!  B SHRED OR B DEAD!  See ya soon!”
