Last week it was Asking Alexandria, this week it’s A Day To Remember – this autumn really is packed to the guts with bands consolidating their status at the top of the Kerrangcore tree with some of the biggest tours they’ve ever mounted. ADTR are even big enough to bring Radio 1-playlist botherers, Lower Than Atlantis, along as their main support. We made sure our man in Brighton, Mike Burnell, was there to photograph the both of them.
A Day To Remember
A Day to Remember is a band from Ocala, Florida, founded in 2003 by guitarist Tom Denney and drummer Bobby Scruggs. They are mainly known for their unusual amalgamation of metalcore and pop punk as a musical style, as well as playing other styles. The band consists of vocalist Jeremy McKinnon, rhythm guitarist and backing vocalist Neil Westfall, bassist Joshua Woodard, percussion and drummer Alex Shelnutt and lead guitarist Kevin Skaff.

A Day To Remember on Thrash Hits
August 10th, 2014
Bloody hell, there’s an awful lot of nonsense on the Reading and Leeds 2014 festival line-up, isn’t there? I mean, we know this isn’t a bona fide heavy music festival like Download and Sonisphere, but sweet flippin’ Jesus is there some pony stinking up the bill this year. That’s because it’s enormous – literally 100s of bands – but, as such, there are also a whole load of bloody excellent bands and this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist cuts through all that and brings you the very best of the heavy stuff that you can find if you sniff around the schedule a little bit.

Hardcore shows are meant to be in a grotty little room under a pub. Add a bit of pop-punk, however, and you get to the Brixton Academy. That’s what A Day To Remember have done, so we went down to see what all the fuss is about.

A Day to Remember
Attack of the Killer B-Sides
25 May 2010
by Tomas Doyle
The first thing to note about Attack of the Killer B-sides is how lightweight it appears to be as a release. Of the four tracks here two are cover versions (both of which have appeared on previous releases) and another is just an acoustic version of a previously-released song. As a result there is only one song that fans of A Day To Remember probably haven’t already heard and you can’t help but wonder what value for money this represents as a purely musical proposition.

So what have all these bands got in common? They’ve all been “officially” announce for Donwload 2010? Hurrah! (Please remember to divide your excitement by how much you’ve been paying attention to the rumour mill). ETC ETC. What? You want the actual band names? Then you better check after the jump then, shouldn’t you?
