FADED SUN is the living breathing brainchild of heavy rock veteran TONY DEVITA, a former member of New York's INVASION who played in support of many of rock and metal's finest and most classic acts
Tony brought his vision and passion to Los Angeles during the heydey of the southland's metal scene, and took his band CARFAX ABBEY to new heights.
His powerful vocals caught the attention of Nuclear Blast recording artists NEW EDEN, and soon therafter, Tony and NEW EDEN were on the metal festival circuit.
Tony honed the experience in these other acts to forge an outfit in his own image: groove metal with power metal and progressive musicianship, soaring clean vocals with radio rock hooks; the blueprints for what became FADED SUN were lain.
The result has been compared favorably to GODSMACK, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, MEGADETH, BLACK SABBATH, OZZY, ALTER BRIDGE, DEFTONES, DISTURBED and more recently KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and MACHINE HEAD.
Tony's vocal prowess continued to gain him accolades, placing him 2nd overall in the National QUEENSRYCHE TAKE COVER contest where he sang duet with the great GEOFF TATE and QUEENSRYCHE at the Anaheim House of Blues and was invited to Sing in Seattle for the finals. Also Tony actively Participates in METAL JAM for Autism To sing with Jamming Musicians for a good cause!
Independent radio stations the world over have embraced the new direction, and FADED SUN continues to be on the top of the list to support National Acts that share the vision and continue to bring the goods to a hungry and loyal metal crowd.
Combined with the precise hammering and rock solid groove of drummer MIKE BROWN, and the fearless bombast of lead guitarist DAVID BALDWIN GAMBLE uitar FADED SUN will continue to deliver on the promise that earned them high profile support gigs.
2013 saw the release of Event Horizons, an EP that hints at the direction Faded Sun will be headed into 2014.
