The foundation of A DAY TO REMEMBER was built on a drive to reinvent a genre that was desperately seeking creativity. The music and lyrics performed by vocalist Jeremy McKinnion, guitarists Neil Westfall and Kevin Skaff, bassist Joshua Woodard and drummer Alex Shelnutt are based off true, deep-seeded emotion. Jeremy explains as his most honest and personal writings to date, “I know what the lyrics mean to me, but my hope is our fans take away their own interpretation.” ADTR masks over the genres, with a wingspan stretching from the pop-punk genre to metal core, without settling on one single interpretation. Instead of shooting for one, shoot for it all. By doing it all, ROCKSOUND praised that “ADTR are the poster boys of a genre on the cusp of a new revolution.”
After crashing the parties in mainstream circuits with their 2009 album Homesick, they began work on their new album. Both “I’m made of Wax, Larry , What Are You Made of?” and “Have Faith in Me” premiered on MTV2 and MTVu . “Have Faith in Me” was the Most Requested song on KROQ five weeks standing while receiving 7000+spins at Active Rock and Alternative radio stations across the U.S. The momentum surrounding ADTR was heightened with the band’s appearance at X Games, Krock-athon and on Loveline with Dr. Drew. Along with “The Downfall of Us All” on Rockband and “NJ Legion Iced Tea” on Guitar Hero was released.
