New Dawn Breaking [2005] saw The Walls take a more performance-based approach. Recorded in Black Box Studios, France with producer Dave Odlum at the helm, the album is a real rush of blood to the head. It is both gutsy and tender, brimming with passion. It includes the hit single 'To the Bright and Shining Sun' and the gripping 'Drowning Pool' which was featured over the opening credits of the movie 'Begin Again' featuring Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley.

“The Walls have always possessed an organic aura that makes them so darn likeable and they’ve successfully imbued this glow into the making of the record giving it that homely Wilco feeling…an album full of hooks, catchy choruses and stomping tunes”. TOTALLY DUBLIN

“So at an important point in their career, The Walls have made a great album. Two guitarists, bass and drum’s - music just doesn’t get any better than this.” – SUBCULTURE MAGAZINE

“New Dawn Breaking should put this hard-working band back where they belong - bringing down the house, as well as holding up the ceiling. The Stunning? No way, this is more of a first time buyers' investment”. – ENTERTAINMENT.IE

“Super-charged with the idea of starting afresh, at its best 'New Dawn Breaking' has an urgency about it which proves infectious. The wait was worth it”. RTE.IE
