Progressive/Alt-Metal group Ascending Dawn has released their newest track All In Now! The single is off their upcoming nine-track album Coalesce which drops on December 1st. The new EP was co-produced, mixed and mastered by Jochem Jacobs (ex-Textures) at Split Second Sound in Amsterdam. This New York/London-based music project consists of Marlain Angelides (vocals/songwriter), Owen Rees (guitar), Mark Weatherley (drummer/composer) and Jen “Connie” Fletcher (bass). Angelides was previously the lead vocalist of top-charting Greek pop band Hi-5, and is currently the lead singer of the New York-based all-girls Led Zeppelin band, LEZ ZEPPELIN. A graduate of London’s Royal Academy of Music, Angelides is an accomplished West End performer, global touring backup vocalist, and represented Cyprus in the Eurovision Song Contest.
The group began in 2013 when Rees met Angelides in London through his band, Enteric, as they were seeking a new vocalist. Angelides flew from Greece to join the group, but a year later, they disbanded due to logistics. Weatherley, then a member of another band, also endured a band split and created a new side project with Rees and Fletcher. Angelides was reunited with the new project in London, and Ascending Dawn was born. The group found their way quickly, with the new EP written in three weeks and launched into production. Although Fletcher is no longer with the project, she leaves as a major contributor to the debut album’s mix of metal, progressive and melodic hard rock. Rees and Weatherley remain in London, contributing their writing and production of Ascending Dawn from afar as Angelides paves the way in the States.
