A Day To Remember is one of those bands that always seem to be on the road. Having taken the entire month of September off from performing, the band has resumed their relentless schedule in October.
Starting the much anticipated Just Some More Shows Tour in their home state of Florida, the band will conclude the string of dates in Irvine on October 28th at FivePoint Amphitheatre. This will be A Day To Remember’s first show back in Irvine since 2016 when they performed at the now defunct Irvine Meadows with Blink-182.
It’s hard to ignore the amazing list of openers that have been named for this tour. The Irvine date should expect to see The Ghost Inside, Movements, and Magnolia Park as supporting acts. Each of these bands could be selling out their own shows elsewhere, however Orange County is lucky enough to get this lineup bundled into one amazing show. The Ghost Inside’s last Orange County show came to us over seven years ago at Anaheim’s own Chain Reaction, and I suspect many fans of the band will be in attendance and have already purchased tickets.
A Day To Remember’s first Orange County show in six years is in support of their latest full-length album, “You’re Welcome.” Released in March of 2021, “You’re Welcome” is the band’s seventh studio album and is home to some of the band’s most popular tracks like “Resentment,” “Brick Wall,” and “Mindreader.”
The band recently released a song and accompanying music video for the single “Miracle.” “Miracle,” on its surface, feels like an elaboration of the songs we’ve come to love off “You’re Welcome,” however after only a few listens, I’ve concluded that this is the band’s best work yet. With the release of this newest single, my excitement has reached a boiling point and I am beyond hopeful that I hear more new material on this tour.
Once described as metalcore meets pop punk, A Day To Remember has come a long way since their 2003 debut album, “And Their Name Was Treason.” With their jaw-dropping performance and stage antics, it’s no wonder how the band has racked up over a billion YouTube views and continues to gain momentum. Since their departure from Victory Records in 2011 and the famous lawsuit that followed, the band has released three critically acclaimed albums from which they will be drawing material for this upcoming tour.
Before the expensive lawsuit between the label and band, A Day To Remember saw success with cult classic albums “And Their Name Was Treason,” “For Those Who Have Heart,” and the groundbreaking album that changed everything, “Homesick.” With such an extensive catalogue of songs to choose from, you likely won’t be hearing every single one of your favorite songs, but I’m willing to bet they’ll be peppering in songs from each era, going back to “For Those Who Have Heart.”
Tickets are on sale now and I suggest you do not delay in purchasing yours for this amazing bill.
