Both East of the Wall and Day Without Dawn were both spiritual successors to The Postman Syndrome. Day Without Dawn existed from 2005 - 2008, when they disbanded and all remaining members moved on to East of the Wall.
The band released two albums, a self-titled EP in 2006 and the posthumous Understanding Consequences LP in 2008. The recording of Understanding Consequences was never originally intended to be released. It was the writing demo sessions, remixed posthumously.
The East of the Wall song "A Wisp of Tow" was originally written by Day Without Dawn, and intended for that band's full-length, but it was saved for the upcoming East of the Wall album "Ressentiment". "After the Banquet" was originally written by The Postman Syndrome for inclusion on the band's second record - it was the second of two interconnected songs (actually, it was parts 2 and 3). The unused first half went on a bonus disc that was included with preorders of the Postman album.
