A Day To Remember Explain Why Their New Album Has Been Pushed Back
When A Day To Remember first announced that the release date of their new album You’re Welcome was moving, the Ocala titans vaguely stated that, “It’s taken a little longer than expected and we just aren’t done with it yet.” Now, in a new interview with WSOU, guitarist Kevin Skaff has explained more behind the reasoning for this decision.
“It got pushed back because the art for the record isn’t done yet,” he says. “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.”
Kevin also adds that there are “a couple of songs that are still getting mixed” and that the band “just need to find the right mixer”.
“It’s only getting pushed back – what? – two, two and a half months, so it’s not too bad,” he continues. “It’s not like a Kanye [West] thing where it’s never gonna come out.”

To tide fans over until the release of You’re Welcome in 2020 via Fueled By Ramen, A Day To Remember recently unveiled a new single, Resentment.
Chatting to Kerrang! about the sound of A Day To Remember’s new effort – and the balance of sticking with their ‘classic’ style to expanding with more electronic influences – frontman Jeremy 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.”
