The album was released on the Gooom label in Europe and on the Mute label in the United States. It was the first album from M83 following the departure of founding member Nicolas Fromageau.
M83’s first album without Nicolas Fromageau, Before the Dawn Heals Us leaves Anthony Gonzalez as M83’s sole constant member and creative force. Gonzalez used this freedom to diversify M83’s soundscape and instrumentation, whilst somehow crafting an album much more focused and urgent than its predecessor Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts. Before the Dawn Heals Us is a loose concept album revolving around a car crash. Before the Dawn Heals Us Q&A.

M83 Anthony Gonzales - Vocals, Production and Instrumentation. Before The Dawn Heals Us features a guest bassist, drummer and a range of guest vocalists. Before The Dawn Heals Us is a much different album from Dead Cities, Red Seas and Lost Ghosts. With Anthony Gonzales taking the controls for himself, Before The Dawn Heals Us may just be the first step in the new direction for M83. The electronic post-rock of Dead Cities was an excellent sound for just two guys with two keyboards. The problem, of course was that it often drifted into boredom territory
Although M83 has undergone some personnel changes - adding in more live instruments and vocals while losing co-member Nicolas Fromageau - the tendency to overegg the pudding remains. For every breathtaking melodic rush like Don't Save Us From the Flames, with its guitars whizzing and whooshing like fireworks, there is a piece of portentous tosh like Moonchild, which calls to mind Spinal Tap and a scale model of Stonehenge. Gonzalez achieves his best results when his touch is light.
