Though it’s been 3 years since their most recent album Bad Vibrations was released, it’s time for A Day To Remember fans to get excited. After releasing their newest single “Rescue Me” earlier this year, a new era of A Day To Remember music has emerged with both a new tour (featuring I Prevail and Beartooth as support), as well as a brand new single, “Degenerates”. The new song coincides with the band’s just-announced signing to Fueled By Ramen.
The last couple years have seen a lot of change for Las Vegas’ sonically eclectic Amarionette. After undergoing a significant sound change, parting ways with their original vocalist, and recently seeing the departure of their longtime drummer, the band has continued to persevere with the release of their new “Evolution” EP, out on Friday, August 23. I spoke in-depth with guitarist Nick Raya about the band’s creative process, some of the new songs, and where they hope to go next.
The Pure Noise Records Tour brought some of the best bands hardcore has to offer right now, from young rising bands like Sanction and Year Of The Knife, to veterans Stick To Your Guns and Counterparts.

Love them or hate them, there is no denying that Knocked Loose have made quite an impact on the music scene ever since their 2014 EP Pop Culture. Only continuing to grow with Laugh Tracks in 2016, this debut led the band to become even more talked about in both a positive and negative aspect causing a major division between people who either loved this style of hardcore with its extremely unique take on vocals, its bare-bone riffs or even the lyricism overall, to those who can’t stand it. The underlying question here is: did the band cater to the nay-sayers and change their sound up for their sophomore album? Within the first 10 seconds of Belleview that’s answered with a resounding “hell no”.
