Before Dawn

2nd Wave Post-Punk / Synth Rock

Before Dawn is an Appleton-based, high-energy, synth-rock duo. Both theater majors, Rob and Kate met at a party in college. They bonded over music, comedy, and a love of road trips and swimming holes. They formed their second-wave post-punk project, Before Dawn, during the decade they lived in Austin, TX, with a mission to create a live show that provides an entire cathartic stadium-rock experience for their audiences in spite of being a duo. Before Dawn’s discography spans approximately fifteen years and currently includes two full-length albums, two EPs, and a handful of singles. They have been described as, “A hook and synth-laden wall of sound decorated with memorabilia from 70s punk rock, 80s new wave, 90s club music and, well, just about anything else you can think of! With timeless showmanship and a knack for comedic timing, this two-person outfit is guaranteed to start a full-on dance party with or without you.” – Shawn Petsche, Music Festival Promoter
