Victory Records announces the signing of A Day To Remember and Beneath The Sky, two bands that promise to challenge the conventions of rock and expand the barriers of the cutting edge.
With an average age of 18.2, FloridaÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s A Day To Remember enter BostonÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s Zing Studios (Underoath, Killswitch Engage) in October to record their Victory debut. A Day To Remember formed in early 2003 and developed their distinct brand of melodic punk/metal, which came to fruition on an album released last year by Indianola Records. The album sold over 8,000 copies through word-of-mouth and the bandÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s rigorous road work of almost 200 shows in the last year. The quintet of singer Jeremy McKinnon, guitarists Neil Westfall and Tom Denney, bassist Joshua Woodard and drummer Bobby Scruggs are one in the same with the people that come to their shows. When asked about their shows Josh says Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”We have a really good live show and put off a good energetic vibe. You have the hardcore kids who want to dance and have a good time, and the girls and pop kids who want to sing all the catchier stuff.Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? The bandÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s dynamic, hybrid sound is often described as a mix between Fall Out Boy, Silverstein, New Found Glory and Underoath.
Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”A Day to Remember destroys the barriers between pit core and Saves the Day pop with intermittent and equal doses of furious and fast hardcore with vocals ranging from melodic to youth crew chants.Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Interpunk.com
Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”Beneath the Sky to us is more about just the way we live lifeÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã‚¦ We feel that we all have a very short existence Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã‹Å“beneath the skyÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢ and that life is worth living and fighting for and making it worthwhileÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã‚¦there are too many negative things going on in the world today to let it affect us and the younger generation. We just need to make the most of things and have fun while were all here,Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? says singer Joey Nelson.
CincinnatiÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s Beneath The Sky formed over two years ago and will enter the studio in September to record their debut album with Jason Suecof (Trivium, The Autumn Offering). The bandÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s brutal blend of metal intensity, catchy melodies, crushing breakdowns and impassioned vocals have an addictive quality that many hard music artists do not successfully capture. They have established themselves through constant touring across the Midwest and Eastern U.S. along with a fantastic following on the Internet that has led to virally infectious word of mouth.
Beneath The Sky are: Joey Nelson Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Vocals, Jeff Nelson Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Guitar, Chris Profitt- Guitar , Matt Jones- Keytar, Nick Scarberry – Bass and Brandon Sowder Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Drums.
