From a press release:

Today, Lehighton-based hard rock band Another Day Dawns debuted at No. 39 on the Mediabase Active Rock Chart with their latest single, “Forget Me Not.”

This is the second time they cracked the Mediabase Active Rock Chart in less than four months during the pandemic and without the assistance of touring this year.

Historically, they are the first rock band from the state of Pennsylvania to chart on the Mediabase Active Rock Top 40 as an unsigned act without any major or indie label representation, and now they’ve done it twice with songs from their new EP, “Stranger,” which was released to all major streaming platforms on Jan. 31.

The young band has also signed with Artist Group International and is now represented by booking agent Nick Storch. Storch currently represents noteworthy acts such as Ghost, Nothing More, Starset, Falling in Reverse, Underoath, and Blue October.

The first single from “Stranger” called “Taste of Heaven” was co-written with Grammy Hall of Fame Songwriter Desmond Child (Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, KISS) with bass performances by Aaron Bruch (Breaking Benjamin); it was produced by Joe Rickard (Starset, Joyous Wolf, Red, Diamante). “Taste of Heaven” also charted at its peak of No. 28 on BDS/Billboard radio charts and No. 40 on the Medibase Active Rock Chart on April 27.

The music video for “Taste of Heaven” was released on YouTube on Jan. 31 and debuted by Live Nation-owned marketing medium “The Noise,” reaching over 118,000 streams on YouTube and over 360,000 on Spotify. Their next video for “Beautiful Suicide” has amassed over 250,000 views and is still climbing, while the “Forget Me Not” video has over 114,000 views.

Formed in 2010 in the Lehigh Valley, Another Day Dawns continues to be the most talked about up-and-coming rock act in the Northeast to Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. The band, which features lead singer Dakota Sean, guitarist Tyler Ritter, bassist Jerome Betz, and drummer Nick McGeehan, hit No. 10 on Billboard’s Northeast Heatseekers chart with their debut EP, “A Different Life,” only four months after it was released last year, solidifying their foundation in the active rock market.

Hitting the road in 2019 with bands such as Hinder, Issues, Cold, and Buckcherry, ADD has created an established following nationally and internationally through smart digital strategy. Over the last two years, the band has performed in multiple venues with 400-1200 capacity, filling hundreds of seats, and grossing over 20,000 in followers on their social media accounts and hundreds of thousands of streams.
