In an era where it’s becoming harder to rack up album sales than ever before, any kind of Silver or Gold record is awfully impressive. 10 years ago with the release of their breakout third record Homesick, A Day To Remember certainly accomplished much with that record, which vaulted them to the top of the alternative scene at the time. It’s a metaphorical title they haven’t relinquished yet, with 3 more consistently good records to follow it.
Now, the band has officially been recognized with a gold record for one of the album’s biggest songs, “I’m Made Of Wax, Larry, What Are You Made Of?”, by the RIAA. This means that the single has sold more than 500,000 copies, which is awfully impressive in this day and age. While digital downloads and physical copies still play a major role in those certifications, the band – who just finished a headlining tour with Beartooth and I Prevail – should be applauded for their efforts, to be certain.
