Taking Dawn (now Devils Run)[1] are a heavy metal band from Las Vegas, Nevada.


The band was originally named 7th Son in tribute to the iconic Iron Maiden album Seventh Son of a Seventh Son before calling themselves Taking Dawn.[2]

The band signed to major American record label Roadrunner Records in 2009. Taking Dawn toured throughout 2010 and performed alongside Airbourne, Kiss, Slash, Trivium, All That Remains, Halestorm, DragonForce and Theory of a Deadman among others. Taking Dawn also performed at many festivals including Download in Europe and Soundwave in Australia.

In late 2010 drummer Alan Doucette left the band due to trouble on the road and was replaced by Carlo Mazzone. In 2013, guitarist Mikey Cross announced on his personal Facebook account that the band was finished and its members were all pursuing different musical ventures, however this was not acknowledged nor corroborated by the rest of the band.[3]

Taking Dawn has since re-branded themselves under the new moniker Devils Run[4] and released a number of new songs including "Burn the Night Out" and "Secrets".[5]
