A Day To Remember Are Teasing Something

Is A Day To Remember's new album You're Welcome finally on the way?

A Day To Remember Are Teasing Something

While A Day To Remember will no longer be returning to the UK and Europe this May due to coronavirus, it looks like the band have some good news on the way.

There's been an agonising wait for fans to find out when the Ocala pop-punk-meets-metalcore titans' new album You're Welcome is finally getting a release date (having been delayed back in November last year), and this could be the biggest sign yet that the band are gearing up to, er, welcome it into the world.

Taking to social media to post a cryptic cartoon photo of a pair of eyes looking out through the rain, the internet is now speculating whether this means there's a new single coming, or this might even be the artwork for You're Welcome – meaning that the LP is finally finished, and we'll be finding out when it's getting released very soon.

It would be interesting if this image is in fact part of the album cover – especially given the fact that the artwork has been the predominant reason for the release's delay in the first place.

“It got pushed back because the art for the record isn’t done yet,” revealed guitarist Kevin Skaff in November. “We still can’t find a good cover for the record. I know it doesn’t really matter nowadays, with streaming and everything, but we just want everything to be perfect before it comes out.”

He also added at the time that there were “a couple of songs that are still getting mixed” and that the band “just need to find the right mixer”.

Anyway, check out A Day To Remember's curious new teaser below.

Discussing the sound of You're Welcome with Kerrang! last year, frontman Jeremy McKinnon teased: “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.”

When asked about why now was the time to take this approach, he explained, “It wasn’t on purpose, you know. I wanted to collaborate with as many people as I possibly could. There was just something about that, and I just wanted to start writing. That’s a world I want to get into more: writing for other people, writing for other genres, whatever. I just love the process of actually making new material. And in the process of that, working with a lot of very fucking cool, creative people, we would get in a room and it was like there was no rule book. It’s just, ‘Let’s write what we’re inspired to write today, and we’ll worry about what we’re going to use it for later.’ Whether it was for A Day To Remember, or something else, the goal was to just write good songs. That’s where everything started, and we ended up with something like 42 demos, fully fleshed out, that all sounded great. For the first time in our lives, we were actually prepared to go in and track a new record! And then the real hard part – and still to this day – is what actually makes the cut. It’s very painful to make some of these cuts because of how far along they were, and how strong the material feels. We’ll see what happens! But it was a very creative and inspiring record.”
