Predawn Hour

Predawn Hour


Midwest rock band that has used raw emotion to write and perform original music for the better part of a decade. We are arena ready, but have a lyrically intimate feel. We have been compared live to Candlebox and Alice In Chains.


We are known for our lyrics and raw emotion on stage, because we've seen real personal tragedy in our band and used our music to deal with it. This is not to say all of our music is depressing, just that the Nirvana vein running through is apparent. Our pronounced Seattle sound is coupled with a maturity that only a decade of playing in everything from dirty small town bars to packed auditoriums can produce.

Our music education has included national tours, member changes, including the death of our lead-guitarist, and several recordings. It is safe to say that we will not quit. Music is our true path in life.

Lyrically, we've been compared to Blind Melon and Tool, however, execution-wise it's more Fuel meets Pantera. As genre's go we are true rock music with the substance of a singer/songwriter. Our music can be blared through the loudest system in an arena, while the next day boiled down to an acoustic show at the local coffee shop and get a great reaction at both.

Crowd interaction is what we aim for and our fans sing every word. With the release of our latest EP "Echo of October" in December 2008 we look forward to gaining new fans and giving our loyal ones more to love.
