Artist: New Years Day Title: “Diary Of A Creep” Label: Century Media Records Release Date: 2/23/2018 Genre: Alternative Hard Rock Rating: 4/5
It’s been a minute since I’ve looked into the doings and brewing’s of the band New Years Day, so I was rather excited to dig into this new EP offering called “Diary Of A Creep”. The extended play comes care of the Century Media Records label and is one brand-new original song along with five covers. Generally speaking, the idea of cover albums has grown boring for me, but I’ve opened up on them a little more of late since they are not coming out as often as they used to. There was a time a few short years ago where almost every artist was dishing out a covers album and too much just makes a unique idea stale. The new track is called “Disgust Me” and I loved the overall groove of this one and had to say that there were points when Ash reminded me of Maria Brink of In This Moment. With that band no longer on CMR, perhaps NYD will rise in the ranks to be that sort of band for their roster. Continue reading “Diary Of A Creep” by New Years Day→

Leave it to The Fronz and his maniacal mates of Attila to come up with a tour called “Let’s Get Abducted”. I can just see the faces that the parents of the younger set of show fans will be making when they catch wind of this one LOL. That being said check out the announcement that just hit our Metal Media HQ.

The band will be joined by New Year’s Day, Bad Omens, and Cane Hill on the trek, which kicks off on Valentine’s Day in Memphis and runs through March 12 in Greensboro, N.C.
