Dawn Ray’d have announced details of their new album To Know The Light.

The trio’s upcoming third record will arrive on March 24, 2023 via Prosthetic, with its lead single dropping in January.

Says frontman Simon Barr of what’s to come: “This record has been transformative for us, it is Dawn Ray’d, black metal and protest music entirely reimagined. Writing these songs has helped us process the times we are living through, the chaos that swirls around us, and has given us new resolve and a clearer perspective on how we continue to find love and joy in disordered times. We cannot wait to share that catharsis with the world, we will be a poison if we cannot be a cure!”
