EDITORS’ NOTES

A Day to Remember draw their power from harnessing diverse strains of uncompromising rock and punk, and Bad Vibrations displays this hybrid sound in full force. The title track boasts a rumbling chorus straight out of the nu-metal playbook, while "Paranoia" whips itself into a punishing hardcore hurricane. But ADTR never forget their roots: "We Got This" is a buoyant pop-punk track with flypaper-sticky hooks and jovial piano, while "Exposed" emphasizes growling vocals and obliterating metalcore riffs.

Never The Same, Never Worse

A Band To Remember

The sound I'm hearing is so RAW I love it. EVERY album by them is amazing. Tells its own story, I can't wait to see what this story tells. ADTR never disappoints. The next big step. Do yourself a favor.
If your new to the family; 1. Buy ALL their previous albums. 2. preorder this.
The fans, you already did the second thing. 🎶👌🏻

Another amazing album, read below if you don't believe me.

So, let me start off by saying, I read the other reviews, and while I respect their opinions, I hate to say they are completely wrong. Basing an album off a hand full of singles is completely ludicrous. However, unlike the previous bunch I have heard the entire album. And trust me, it's amazing.

The vocal style is a departure from normal ADTR style for the most part, but it's an innovative risk taking venture that pays off. At some points I found myself curious if I was still listening to ADTR. It's true this CAN be a bad thing, but in the case of this album it keeps things fresh and interesting. The band brings in new aspects and sides to their musical talents that haven't been put into play on previous albums to keep things fresh. If you're looking for standard ADTR then this (for the most part) isn't it. But none the less, it's still catchy as hell. In fact the singles just don't do it justice.

We've all heard the singles, but Reassemble is resemblant of a metal anthem of epic proportions.

Justified reminds me of older ADTR pre Homecoming.

Same about you's solo is great and the breakdown is one of the best to date.

Exposed is likely the heaviest ADTR song to date, and Jeremy's unclean vocals really shine through on this track in particular.

Turn off the radio is a solid track, with some of the highest vocals I've ever heard on an ADTR album.

Forgive and forget, likely the ONLY softer song on the whole album (haven't heard the 2 additional tracks on the deluxe edition) is superb. You can feel the melody and relate on another level if you've ever been in a situation where you feel hopeless.

Truly this album is innovation on every aspect of the bands musical talents. It showcases their journey. Their talent. And their devotion to their fans to avoid pulling a cash grab maneuver by offering up 12 tracks that sound exactly the same as the last 3 albums like some bands do in today's world.

In my opinion this album feels a lot like a cross between for those who have heart and Homecoming. If feels like ADTR returning to their roots, but not forgetting their journey.

As a long time fan of the band, I LOVE this album. This is a great album. I can't recommend it enough. I implore those of you who are skeptics, or judged the album by its singles, give it another go.

Pop your headphones in and go on a journey. And see if the album as a whole changes your opinion. I'm willing to bet it will.

About A Day to Remember

A Day to Remember were formed in 2003 and mix emo, hardcore, and metal into a blend affectionately referred to by their fans as "pop mosh." Hailing from Ocala, Florida, vocalist Jeremy McKinnon, guitarists Neil Westfall and Tom Denney, bassist Joshua Woodard, and drummer Bobby Scruggs financed their first EP themselves, then signed with Indianola Records for the release of their full-length And Their Name Was Treason in spring 2005. The record went on to sell over 8,000 copies through word of mouth alone, and a year later the guys were signed to Chicago powerhouse Victory Records. Work quickly began on their label debut; For Those Who Have Heart appeared in January 2007, featuring new drummer Alex Shelnutt. Homesick, the band's sophomore release, arrived in October 2009. After Homesick, Tom Denney left the band (although he remained a part of the writing process) while Kevin Skaff (from Four Letter Lie) assumed the guitar duties. The group's fourth studio album, What Separates Me from You, was released the following year. In 2011, the bandmembers found themselves involved in a dispute with Victory that would eventually lead to a lawsuit, the result of which allowed A Day to Remember to self-release their fifth full-length, Common Courtesy, in 2013. The album peaked at number 37 on the Billboard 200, and charted internationally, earning near universal accolades from both fans and critics. Bad Vibrations, the band's much anticipated follow-up, dropped in 2016. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia
