ABOUT

The Dawn Chose Orion are looking for some new bandmates and/or fill-ins to get back to shows this summer!

TDCO used to play a lot of shows (plus 3 tours) from 2011-2016 but went on hiatus from 2017 until our recent "comeback show" this year. Long story short, my partner has been extremely sick since 2014 and had made it hard to commit to being an active band. However, her health is improving, we recently headlined at Moe's BBQ on 2/12/22, and we have a new album almost completely recorded! Now, we're looking to get back to playing more shows and most importantly... to get back to touring again! That's maybe our biggest thing we're looking for is people who want to play shows and/or go on tour! Currently, we're a 2 piece with myself singing/songwriting/producing and our drummer who also is producing this album. We're looking for 1-2 guitarists, a bassist, and/or maybe even a keyboardist/DJ. At the moment, we currently have rhythm guitars (1 set), bass, and all the EDM/Hip Hop stuff on backing tracks. We need at least 1 guitarist minimum to get "show ready" and would like to try to play summer shows as soon as possible!

Our newer stuff is still our signature "Prog Metal/EDM" sound but modernized with trap/hip hop, djent, and other newer underground EDM genres. Our older stuff was thrashier, more "shreddy", and had a lot more screaming/growling. However, we're toning down a lot of that stuff to be more groove oriented, melodic, and catchy. Also, myself being Asian and Pacific Islander mixed... I've been throwing in a lot of modern and traditional Asian influences into the mix as well!

Also, we're a futuristic concept band. So, our "story", lyrics, and artwork is all sci-fi and anime/manga influenced.

We currently practice in my basement in Aurora on Monday and Friday in the evenings. We have a full PA system w/ mixing board, backing track Zoom R16, drum kit with the kick triggered, and my Shure microphone for my vocals. We also have t-shirts, business cards, stickers, pins, and koozies for merch. Definitely sold A LOT of merch for our comeback show on 2/12!

I have both guitar tabs and bass tabs to help speed up the "getting back to playing live" process. lol You might need a free app called TuxGuitar to use it but it might work on Guitar Pro as well. Just lemme know what you need to help you learn the songs.
