Bad Vibrations pre-orders online now:
“Chainsaw guitars, fierce growls juxtaposed with soaring choruses and thrashing breakdowns” – Alter The Press
“Demolishes everything else in it’s radius” – Zane Lowe, Beats 1
Worldwide hardcore phenomenon A Day To Remember have today announced their highly-anticipated sixth studio album Bad Vibrations, led by the video for the huge title-track. The Floridian five-piece have spent the three years since their critically acclaimed Common Courtesy (2013) touring relentlessly around the globe, including the recent Big Ass Tour Australian tour, and will drop their latest blazing effort on August 19, 2016 via ADTR Records/Epitaph.
Pre-orders for Bad Vibrations are available via iTunes or bundles via smarturl.it/ADTRAus, and include instant downloads for ‘Bad Vibrations’ and ‘Paranoia’. Watch the video for ‘Bad Vibrations’ here.
Anthemic album opener and new single ‘Bad Vibrations’ is fierce and rousing, complete with the punchy riffs, infectious hooks and brutal breakdowns synonymous with the group. The track follows the “ferocious” lead single ‘Paranoia’, as declared by Rock Sound, which was praised and premiered by Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 Radio Show in March. Closer to home, ‘Paranoia’ was added to full rotation on triple j and has dominated the airwaves over the past few months, while the track has gone on to exceed 8 million global streams.
A Day To Remember unapologetically remain true to their blend of pop-punk and hardcore throughout Bad Vibrations, delivering a gutsy and commanding 11 tracks with blistering rhythms, catchy choruses, gang vocals and aggressive mosh moments. On the recording process, which involved legendary Bill Stevenson of The Descendents, and Jason Livermore (Rise Against, NOFX), front man Jeremy McKinnon explained, “We completely changed the way we wrote, recorded and mixed this album. It was one of the most unique recording experiences we’ve ever had. We rented a cabin in the mountains 30 minutes outside of town and just wrote together in a room, which was the polar opposite of the last three albums we’ve made. And working with Bill was an awesome experience. He was a bit hard to read at first, so I think we subconsciously pushed ourselves harder to try to impress him. As a result, we gave this album everything we had.”
Named Alternative Press’ “Best Live Band of 2015,” A Day To Remember (comprised of vocalist Jeremy McKinnon, guitarists Kevin Skaff and Neil Westfall, bassist Joshua Woodard and drummer Alex Shelnutt) have become a global force to be reckoned with – the past few years has seen the quintet headline festivals internationally, clock up #1s on the Billboard Rock, Indie and Alternative Charts, sell over a million units and rack up over 900 million streams globally. Renowned for their rigorous touring schedule and hard-working ethic, the quintet is set to embark on a massive 46-date tour with Blink-182 in July, performing at arenas across the U.S. and Canada. Their latest album, the self-released Common Courtesy (2013) debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hard Rock Charts and #13 on the ARIA Albums Chart, while What Separates Me From You (2010) and Homesick (2009) were recently certified Gold in the U.S.
