Caught The Vultures Sleeping is Dreadnaught's first album since their self titled release in 2009 and their first album pressed on vinyl!

The pre-sale Pozible campaign to raise recording funds exceeded its target by 10%!

Dreadnaught have welcomed the addition of a new guitarist to their ranks! Neil Flavelle replaces long time member, Damon Alcock, who has left the band to focus on other aspects of life.

The band states 
As you may know our longstanding guitarist of nearly 25 years, Damon Alcock has decided to leave the band to pursue other endeavours. Damon has a long history with Dreadnaught and his contribution over the years has been a core part of the formation of the band’s music today. We would like to thank him for all the hard work, laughsand hangovers, and wish our brother-in-metal all the best for the future.

After Damon’s decision to depart in December 2016 we closed out the year’s gigging commitments with Neil filling in on lead and rhythm guitar. Neil gelled with band very quickly and his writing and playing ability made our decision to offer the position very easy. His past work with StarArk and The Implicate Order shows Neil as a superb player and quality songwriter who will bring a new era of diversity to Dreadnaught.

“Neil has been a fan of the band since the beginning, sending a guitar transcription of most of our first LP, Body.Blood.Skin.Mind LP way back in 1996! We are honoured to have such a dedicated fan of the band and great guitar player in our ranks."

 Formed in 1992 the Melbourne five-piece have been a cornerstone of the Australian heavy music scene for a quarter of a century. Continually evolving and re-inventing themselves, their unique sound has kept their fans captivated since their first self released album, 1996’s Body.Blood.Skin.Mind. They released the Idiosyncrasy EP two years later in 1998, which drew the attention of Roadrunner Records who signed the band in 1999 and released Down To Zero that same year which achieved UK, Euro and US airplay and received critical acclaim. 

The One Piece Missing EP was released in 2002, followed by Dirty Music in 2006 which was released as a double disc containing videos and a compilation of older material and previously unreleased tracks. The 2009 release of Dreadnaught saw the band transition from the more rock oriented style they had adapted on recent releases to a crossover/thrash style more akin to their early years.

 While there’s been some time between releases, the band have never stopped touring. Averaging up to 15 shows around the country per year and over their long career, Dreadnaught have notched up some notable supports with the likes of Testament, Strapping Young Lad, Nevermore, Paradise Lost, Nickelback, Pitchshifter, Prong and Cathedral to name a few. As well as being regulars on festivals such as Metal United Downunder, Higgos Heavy Cherry, Dead Of Winter Fest, The New Dead Fest, Trendkill Fest and Sonic Forge. Dreadnaught have shared the stage with some great Australian metal bands such as Mortal Sin, Alchemist, King Parrot, Desecrator, Lord, Frankenbok and many more.

In 2013, the band celebrated their 21st Birthday with a mini festival at the Reverance Hotel in Melbourne. The packed out event featured 17 of Australia’s current heavy bands and some old favourites.
