Dark New Day
American hard rockers Dark New Day formed in 2004 with a lineup consisting ofWill Hunt (Evanescence), Clint Lowery (Sevendust), Brett Hestla (Virgos Merlot), Troy McLawhorn (Evanescence), and Corey Lowery (Stereomud, Eye Empire). They were quickly snatched up by Warner Bros. Records and released their debut album Twelve Year Silence in 2005. Charting in the Billboard Top 200, the album went on to be extremely successful and build their ever-growing fan base.
The band continued with a rigorous touring schedule supporting acts such as Chevelle, Seether, and Crossfade. In 2006, the band released an EP entitled The Black Porch Acoustic Sessions after being on tour for over a calendar year. The band recorded their second full-length album entitled Hail Mary in 2006 for Warner Bros. Records. Going through many employee and management changes, Warner Bros. decided to release the band from their contract while leaving the Hail Mary album unreleased. It was at this point that Dark New Day went on a hiatus, with the members either returning to their previous bands or venturing out into new projects.
The fire for new Dark New Day material continued to burn in both the band members, and the diehard fan base alike. The band came together in 2011 to compile tracks for a special album to be released as a "thank you" to all the loyal fans that have continued to follow the band and request more material from the group.
On November 14, 2011 Dark New Day proudly announced a partnership with Chicago-based label, Goomba Music to release their new album.
The band’s sophomore album, New Tradition, will be released on February 28, 2012.
The new album features some of Dark New Day’s finest material to date.
Prepare for the rise of a Dark New Day.
