Dreadnaut is a Canadian nu metal band that formed in 2003 in Thompson.


Dreadnaut was formed in 2003 in Thompson, Manitoba and soon moved to Winnipeg, where they made their live debut at the The Zoo Cabaret. By the summer of 2004, the band had released a self-titled six song E.P. that was voted Top 3 local albums of the year in the Best of Winnipeg edition of weekly entertainment magazine The Uptown.[1][2]

The band performed a series of sold out shows in Central Canada on high profile bills such as Junofest in 2005, and headlining the Manitoba Rocks outdoor festival organized by modern rock radio station Freq 107. In 2005 Dreadnaut released their first full-length album titled A New Design, The regional success of A New Design enlarged the band's fan base and led to higher exposure concerts venues such as 700+ concert theaters and the out door music festival perplexapalooza.

Dreadnaut sold over 1000 copies of the EP, and 2000 of their debut album "A New Design" and over 3000 copies of 2nd full length album, "A Taste Of What's To Come", without official distribution.

They are currently working on their follow up to A Taste of What's to Come, slated for 2012.
