A Day To Remember Songs Went From Thrash To Tom Petty

A Day To Remember

(TeamRock) A Day To Remember say they played around with some "super thrash songs" while working on latest album Bad Vibrations - but decided not to include them on the record.

The US outfit's sixth album was released today (September 2) and guitarist Kevin Skaff reveals they had so many songs, it was impossible to feature them all.

Skaff tells Chorus FM: "There were a few super thrash songs. We've never really gotten into thrash before, but they were thrashy. There were a few songs were I was like, 'We could sell this to My Chemical Romance.' Then there were a couple songs that had like a Tom Petty vibe. It was literally all over the place."

Skaff reports that Bad Vibrations is heavier than 2013's Common Courtesy - but says it wasn't a conscious decision. He adds: "We literally wrote two songs a day for 30 days, and then we democratically voted on 15 songs to record. Then there's 11 on the record and two deluxe.

"It just kind of happened naturally that the record is heavier. I don't know why that is or what triggered that. Subconsciously, it probably just happened.

"It could have been a ton of things. It could have been because we were finally all together in a room writing again and everyone's pissed off. Who knows? But it wasn't like we targeted that we need a heavy record. It just came together that way."

To mark the release of Bad Vibrations, A Day To Remember have issued a video for album track Naivety. Watch it here.
