about

A New Day had been touring their arses off across the UK & Europe for years and had already released their well recieved debut EP 'Perfect Passion' on Lockjaw Records.

We had been following the boys exploits ever since their UK tour with Haddonfield in 2007 and had been chasing them for a release ever since.

The opportunity arose when they suggested a split with the US band Giving Chase, whom they were to tour with across Europe for 4 weeks.

The release was another huge learning curve as, for the first time, we pressed the vinyl in the US at the no.1 vinyl pressing plant in Tennessee on 3 different colours. Only 300 copies would be pressed.

The Plan:
To get the vinyl pressed & shipped to Giving Chase's label, Jumpstart Records, in the US and then they would bring 200 copies over with them ready for the tour. 100 copies would be left in the US.
The covers would be hand screen printed by Jeff at Jumpstart & everything would be put together DIY style when they got to the UK.

The Reality:
The master tracks were sent off to the press with all the artwork and completed paperwork and the covers were printed.

Over a period of 2 months, the pressing plant (URP in Nashville) arsed us around constantly and after completely ripping us off, the vinyl missed it's delivery deadline by 2 weeks, meaning that the UK dates on the tour had already been completed, and the bands were now halfway around Europe.

The vinyl sold considerably well after the tour as A New Day continued to force their battered van around Europe. All the US copies sold out at Giving Chase's headline show at Fest 8.

There are still a few copies left, in various colours.

A New Day originally split in 2010 with a sold out farewell show in their hometown of Bridgend with longtime friends A Wilhelm Scream and The Fallthrough.

A one off impromptu reunion show was played in the summer of 2011 when all the former members played a show together in their new bands Hell Money & Hunger Artist. The show also contained their German friends Stand Fast and labelmates Without Fire.

Another reunion show is highly unlikely.
