New Dawn

A Burntwood band has joined acts from across Europe in the shortlist for a competition to find the best unsigned group.

Melodic metal outfit New Dawn are among 35 finalists for the i-Mego TopTrakz Challenge.

The band have already seen off hundreds of other entries from a variety of musical genres in pursuit of the top prize, and a spokesperson for the band admitted their unique offering would be key to their success.

He said:

“We want to show the UK metal scene something they have not seen or heard before.”

The final decision will be made through a combination of public votes and a panel of judges. To vote for New Dawn visit through the Vote4Bands tab.

Judging will end on October 29 with the winning group earning a professional studio day
