With an idea to do something distinctly different, A Day to Remember assembled six years ago from the ashes of a variety of other bands in the flourishing Metal/Punk scene around Ocala, Fla. Utilizing influences that ranged from Post Hardcore to Pop/Punk to Death Metal, ADTR crafted their 2005 debut, And Their Name was Treason, in the tension between Jimmy Eat World’s Emo Pop bounce and As I Lay Dying’s Metal brutality and came up with an album that ultimately sold nearly 10,000 copies on word of mouth alone.

On paper, it seems hard to reconcile ADTR’s blend of Blink-182’s Pop effervescence and A Static Lullaby’s guttural roar, but clearly their fans approve of their sonic hybrid. If you’re not doing anything this Friday, meet A Day to Remember down at the corner of Melody and Mayhem. They play Bogart's with The Devil Wears Prada, Sky Eats Airplane and more.
