From: Manitoba ,Canada
Formed 2003, in the icy grip and hard terrain of Northern Canada, the founding members packed up their lives and ventured to the
nearest Urban center (and conveniently the Geographical Center of Canada): Winnipeg Manitoba. Upon arrival, Dreadnaut kicked
off their live debut with a bang. Performing at the legendary live venue The Zoo Cabaret, Dreadnaut's hometown popularity
immediately began to grow. Legions of metal fans began attending Dreadnaut shows due to the chaotic, high energy live assault,
and non stop mosh pit that ensues at every show.
Dreadnaut wasted no time in producing a product. By the summer of 2004 the band released their debut 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.
A year of sold out shows in Central Canada found Dreadnaut performing 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 1st
full-length album titled 'A New Design'. The album was quick to be picked up by Central Canadian Rock Stations and to this day
remains one of the top requests on Freq 107. The regional success of 'A New Design' grew the bands fan base even more and led
to them selling out larger concerts such as the 700+ concert theaters and all ages venues in their home town.
With no official distribution, Dreadnaut managed to sell in excess of 1000 copies of their EP and 3000 copies of their debut full
length CD off stage as well as hundreds of merch items ranging from stickers, baby Ts, T-shirts, hoodies, posters etc..!! In
addition the band has enjoyed increasing popularity on line, and as a result their public forum: www.myspace.com/dreadnaut has
received over 255,000 plays to date with a growing number of 200+ plays each day. As well the site has drawn fans, promoters
and industry inquires as far as Europe, Asia and the United States.
On July 15th 2008 Dreadnaut released their second full length album "A Taste of What's to Come". They wasted no time hitting the
road but were put on hold for a few months when Bassist Randy Goshey left the band due to personal issues. After a month or two
of tryouts, a friend of the band Mike Wagner stepped in to fill the low end. Within a few weeks they were playing shows and were
back on the road. As of November 2008 Dreadnaut has become one of 30 Official Canadian Jagermeister Bands. Dreadnaut's new
album has sold thousands and continues to sell.
In 2009 Dreadnaut's album "A taste of What's to come" was again voted a 'Top 3 local album of the year' in Uptown Magazine.
They also won the 'Rockin' the 204' contest, which includes Radio air play on Winnipeg's rock station Power 97. Through the help
of C12 records "A Taste of What's to Come" is now being distributed by EMI. The boys continue to tour on their sophmore album
and have already started work on the next album.
