The ability to evolve and push boundaries has never been more important than it is now. While the mainstream becomessafer,the dynamic,genre-bending acts are driven underground, to be discovered by a whole new generation of music fansnotcontent with the identikit bands pushedat themthrough the major media. It is this hallowed place that A DAY TOREMEMBERhas not-so-subtly been taking over, from stereos to moshpits across theworld. While the music industry scramblesto discoverthe next big thing, A DAY TO REMEMBER has been becoming it, showing that withthe rightamount of hard work,strong songs,an unfaltering self-belief, and that indefinable spark of something really special, anything is possible.

Rising from the punk rock hotbed of Florida in 2003, Josh Woodard (bass), Alex Shellnutt (drums), Neil Westfall (guitar),JeremyMcKinnon(vocals) andTom Denney (guitar) formed A DAY TO REMEMBER, crafting a blend of the music they loved intoa nicheof their own. Their sound combinedthe punk-popof BLINK-182 and NEW FOUND GLORY with brutal hardcorebeatdowns,sending shudders through the underground. Their debut onIndianola recordssold 8,000 copies with littlepromotion, andattracted the attention of Victory Records, who signed them in 2006. “When we first got signed,ourgoalwasn't to blow up oreven sell a ton of records,” recalls bassist Josh Woodward. “All we wanted to do was stay on tour,and play to as manykidsaspossible.” The result exceeded even their expectations, as the infectious, explosive energy of theirlive shows helped themorganically growa fanbase thatmultiplied each time they played.

With the release of their breakthrough album For Those Who Have Heart, A DAY TO REMEMBER went global. In the twoshortyears after itsrelease in early2007, the band grew from a small band with a dedicated local fan-base into aworldwidephenomenon, gaining the respect and adoration fromtheir peersas much as their fans. This is no overnight success– the bandhas worked hard to win over every fan they make. But the ‘perfect storm’ oftheirdedication, rapidly. spreading buzzandundeniable musical abilities have made this young band one of the most talked about bands in rock,gainingthemselvesacoveted slot in Alternative Press’ Most Anticipated Albums 2009 issue.

Selling out tours worldwide, their lyrics “Mark my words: we’re taking over the world” became a self-fulfilling prophecy, astheband hit theroad with bandsthey grew up listening to like New Found Glory and Silverstein, and had a full summer on theVansWarped Tour. Embraced by the media, ADAY TOREMEMBER made it on to “Ones To Watch” lists internationally, pickingup aKerrang! Award nomination for Best International Newcomer;the video fortheir rocked-up cover of Kelly Clarkson’s “SinceUBeen Gone” unshakable from music television over summer 2008.Their new album Homesick sees them using their ascensionasa springboard, ready to launch them into the big time. “Homesick is aculmination of 2 1/2years of being gone on theroad,”Woodard notes. “It represents what we've been through, what's ahead of us, and the lessons we've learnedinbetween.It'sthe heaviest and catchiest record we've ever written, and we couldn't be more excited for people to hear it.We're all soproud of what wejust made,and think it really sets us up to jump to that next level..

In an industry where you have to evolve to stay ahead, A DAY TO REMEMBER is standing defiant, leading the genre. straddling pack in abattle cry, readyfor the fight of their lives. Grab your friends, “disrespect your surroundings”, and watchADAY TO REMEMBER set the world alight. Themainstream won’tknow what hit it.
