EVERDAWN was originally created in March 2014 under the moniker Midnight Eternal, when Richard Fischer and Boris Zaks (both of Operatika) invited Daniel Prestup (Rivera Bomma, Spider Rockets) and Mike LePond (Symphony X) to record a two-song single.
In early 2016 Midnight Eternal signed deals with Intromental Management and Marquee/Avalon (Asia) and Inner Wound Recordings (Europe/North America) for the release of their self-titled debut album. The band embarked on a North American tour, as support of the amazing prog-veterans Queensryche and also toured Europe as support for the avantgarde masters Therion.
Fast forward to 2019, EVERDAWN welcomed talented Russian-born Canadian singer Alina Gavrilenko, who brought a full-blown energetic vocal approach into the new songs while retaining respect to the band's ultra-melodic metal. Also returning to the restructured lineup is Mike LePond, who once again brings his amazing skills to the ranks of EVERDAWN.
In the spring of 2020, EVERDAWN inked a worldwide deal with New Jersey-based record label Sensory Records - a division of The Laser's Edge - for the release of the band's now completed second album, Cleopatra. The new album was recorded during 2019, after which it was mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö (Opeth, Evergrey, Oddland, Omnium Gatherum). Promising to be a huge new step for the band, Cleopatra is now being finalized for release in the second half of 2020.
