“…soars with huge breakdowns, numbing riffs, and the type of infectious hooks that made us fall head over heels” – BLUNT Magazine
“…grabs you by the scruff of the neck and gives you no choice but to headbang violently”
International hardcore heavyweights A Day To Remember have released their brand new single ‘Bullfight‘, taken from their highly-anticipated forthcoming album Bad Vibrations. Now set for a September 2 release, the band’s sixth studio album will be released via their own ADTR Records/Epitaph.
Pre-orders for Bad Vibrations are available via iTunes or bundles via smarturl.it/adtr-preorder, and include instant downloads for ‘Bullfight’, ‘Bad Vibrations’ and ‘Paranoia’. Listen to ‘Bullfight’ here.
‘Bullfight’ follows the release of the album’s title track ‘Bad Vibrations’ and lead single ‘Paranoia‘, both shooting to #2 on the iTunes Rock Chart and the latter of which premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio Show and has gone on to amass more than 6.6 million Spotify streams and 5 million YouTube views.
Recorded at Bill Stevenson’s (Descendents, Black Flag) Fort Collins-based Blasting Room Studios, Bad Vibrations masterfully channels the kinetic energy that found A Day To Remember being named “the best live band of 2015” by Alternative Press. The album sees the group (vocalist Jeremy McKinnon, guitarists Kevin Skaff and Neil Westfall, bassist Joshua Woodard and drummer Alex Shelnutt) forgoing trendy digitally driven production to focus on live recording. “These days it seems like a lot of heavy sounding music is heading more and more in a digital direction,” says McKinnon. “That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but we wanted to go the opposite way and make something that’s aggressive but has more of a natural flow and feel to it.”
Named Alternative Press’ “Best Live Band of 2015,” A Day To Remember 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 currently on the road with Blink-182 for a massive arena tour across the U.S. and Canada, then will head to Australia in December for string of headline shows with support from Of Mice & Men. 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.
