#liveformusic – A Day To Remember
POSTED 18.07.14 IN NEWS
It may have been almost a year since the release of their fifth full length album Common Courtesy, but A Day To Remember are still on the road!
After a headline tour over on UK soil earlier this year – which boasted three stellar support slots thanks to The Story So Far, Every Time I Die and Mallory Knox – could it be time for A Day To Remember to head back into the studio? Whilst we may be getting ahead of ourselves, a new release may not be so farfetched; their headline show at London’s Alexandra Palace was filmed – and can you blame them, with so many pyrotechnics and a stage setup that included an actual house – and frontman Jeremy McKinnon has spoken about his hopes for a live album.
The band are back on the American road in September for their Parks and Devastation tour. With a handful of festivals amongst a sea of shows, the Florida five piece will be joined by Chiodos and Bring Me The Horizon, how’s that for a line up? Hey guys, we’d really like that tour over here in the UK, just saying…
The critically acclaimed Common Courtesy is still doing the guys proud, and their latest single End Of Me dropped earlier this month. Speaking to Kerrang! magazine ahead of the albums release, McKinnon said that the album was a “reflection on our history, on how small-town kids playing music that doesn’t really make sense to the world ended up on the main stages of some of the biggest festivals around the world.” Humble words from the front man, the band are certainly doing something right.
And speaking of festivals, with a slot at this years Reading and Leeds festival (and the rescheduled Cardiff date), we still get our ADTR fix before they head back to their home land for even more extensive touring. Not afraid of hard work, it’s no wonder A Day To Remember are going from strength to strength with a fanbase that spans the world over. Whether it’s singalong choruses or some good old fashioned PMA from the likes of Right Back At It Again, there’s no denying A Day To Remember are on to a winner. We dare you not to sing along and partake in a little fist pumping to The Downfall Of Us All, we DOUBLE dare you.
Common Courtesy is out now.
