1. The Wake
Day Without Dawn was a band that existed from 2006-2007. It was formed by the remaining members of The Postman Syndrome, who in turn existed from 1996-2005. Those members were Jim Stang (Guitar, Vocals), Chris Alfano (Guitar, Vocals), Brett Bamberger (Bass), and Seth Rheam (Drums).
The Postman Syndrome (who also included Matt Lupo- Guitar, Vocals) released one LP, Terraforming, in 2002 on Now Or Never Records. A second album was written but never recorded or released after Now Or Never was acquired by Century Media Records.
Day Without Dawn (formed after Lupo's departure and a transition down to a four-piece lineup) self-released an EP, Day Without Dawn, in 2006. In June of 2007, when the new record, Understanding Consequences, was mostly completed, Stang left the band. Fortunately his parts were almost entirely recorded. Lupo returned to record vocals for the remaining track, "The Undertide," and Larry Chiswick from All Parallels filled in a few vocal gaps throughout the record. Other guest musicians on the record include Bruce Lamont (Yakuza) on saxophone, Jared Duncan (Fake Gimms) on electric piano, and Kevin Conway (East Of the Wall) on guitar.
Understanding Consequences was released in March 2008 by Forgotten Empire Records. The remaining members of Day Without Dawn: Bamberger, Alfano, and Rheam, have formed a new project, titled Biclops. Rounding out the lineup is new guitarist/vocalist Dan Brownridge. Biclops is currently on tour with All Parallels and have half an album completed. They plan to enter the studio by the end of the year.
