Dark New Day Return With New Album
Dark New Day features Clint Lowery (guitarist from Sevendust), Will Hunt (drummer from Evanescence), Troy McLawhorn (guitarist from Evanescence), Brett Hestla (lead singer/guitarist from Virgos Merlot) and Corey Lowery (bassist from Stereomud and Eye Empire).
The album's first single and title track is currently at radio. New Tradition is the follow-up to 2005's debut album, Twelve Year Silence, which was released on Warner Bros. Records.
In 2006, the band released The Black Porch Acoustic Sessions EP after being on tour for over a year with Chevelle, Seether, Crossfade, and many others. After the EP's release, they got to work on what would eventually be their second album, known at the time as Hail Mary.
Going through many employee and management changes, Warner Bros. decided to release the band from their contract, leaving the Hail Mary album to be 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 from Hail Mary, along with newly written and recorded songs, for a special album which will 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.
