A Day To Remember Expand Their Sound on New Track, “Resentment”
A Day To Remember recently announced that their upcoming album has been pushed back, but that doesn’t mean that they are not releasing anything to tide over the masses. They just dropped a new track to give fans a taste of what to expect from the eventual 2020 album release.
“Resentment” is the second track we’re hearing off the new record, You’re Welcome. Following the release of “Degenerates”, it offers more insight into the musical direction that the band is heading in, illustrating that they are staying true to their roots while exploring some more modern influences. The track sees the band combine their patented pop-punk-meets-metalcore with some dynamic modern influences by experimenting with electronic elements that add a thrillingly energetic layer to the classic sound that we’ve come to associate with A Day To Remember. It’s a step in a new stylistic direction that seems organic, as A Day To Remember have always been known for their ability to interweave wildly different genres.
In an interview with Kerrang!, frontman Jerry Mckinnon explained:
“The whole point of this, for me, was like, ‘Let’s use the A Day To Remember formula – the same thing that everyone has always known and loved about us – but let’s take on modern influences.’ Let’s take on modern structure with the small chorus into the big drop part, and let’s do that as a band, instead of electronic stuff. Let’s use some of those elements to make cool sounding stuff as we go, but keep it that A Day To Remember sound here, and let’s mess around with new song structure, and a modern production take, but keep that heaviness that is us. It’s just crazy.”
You’re Welcome is dropping in early 2020 but the band hasn’t revealed its release date just yet. Listen to “Resentment” below. A Day to Remember have a few dates left of their currently in-progress U.S. tour; dates and tickets here.
