Florida punk-pop/metalcore quintet A Day to Remember have already shown us they can stand up to bullies, but as their MTV PUSH Artist of the Week videos below demonstrate, there’s much more to A Day To Remember than just courage. After releasing their debut album, And Their Name Was Treason, independently in 2005, the group was quickly scooped up by emo/hard-core label Victory Records, who released the band’s subsequent albums. Last year’s What Separates Me From You, the group’s fourth album, deftly blended emo, metalcore and punk. The result was their highest-charting album to date, positioning the group as leaders in the metalcore movement.
We’ve got a ton of videos to keep you updated on the group, including exclusive behind-the-scenes clips from their new video “All Signs Point to Lauderdale” and footage of the band’s recent trip to Australia. A Day To Remember already told us all about their die-hard fans, but now we have the video proof. “We have 4,000 people… in Atlanta, and it’s going to rain and hail all over,” guitarist Neil Westfall says in the first video shot before a recent gig. A minor onstage flood does nothing to deter both the band’s and crowd’s energy. “That was one of the most fun shows I’ve ever played in my entire life,” says singer Jeremy McKinnon. “We broke amps. We got electrocuted.”
After you watch the band hang out with koalas in Adelaide, Australia, check out some behind-the-scenes footage from the group’s latest video “All Signs Point to Lauderdale.” You can find out where the video was shot, see alternate angles of McKinnon getting (fake) beat up and learn which band member was glad he wore underwear that day. Ummm, it all makes sense in the video.
Finally, we’ve got a live version of “Lauderdale” involving audience sing-alongs and lots and lots of toilet paper. Young bands, take note: That’s how you put on a show.
Watch exclusive behind-the-scenes videos of A Day To Remember on tour, watch A Day To Remember in the studio in Ocala back in December, when they recorded the 7” vinyl acoustic version of “All I Want” for Record Store Day, and watch MTV’s “The Truth Below” on Thursday, June 16 at 10/9c to hear “If I Leave” and “Sticks And Bricks.”
