    Saves the Day

    Punk

    Daybreak. It’s a fitting title for Saves The Day’s upcoming record, the third part of a trilogy that began with 2006’s Sound the Alarm and continued with Under The Boards in 2007. "Sound The Alarm is an expression of discontent. Under The Boards is reflection and remorse. Daybreak is acceptance," explains singer-guitarist and chief songwriter Chris Conley. “Daybreak wraps up all the turmoil and misery of the previous two albums and transcends the pain by facing the fear and angst that comes in this Life and turning it into growth and positive change.”

    Positive change makes sense for a band that has always had a penchant for evolution. After forming in Princeton, New Jersey in 1997, Saves The Day released its debut album, Can’t Slow Down, in 1998. The band followed it up with the genre-defining Through Being Cool one year later. 2001’s Stay What You Are elevated Saves The Day to an even greater level of success and critical recognition, followed soon after by 2003’s In Reverie. In Reverie took an exciting sonic leap from Stay What You Are, which itself was a stylistic departure from Through Being Cool. Each album the band has released has its own distinct style and flair, though they are all undoubtedly Saves The Day through and through.

    Fast-forward to 2010, and Saves The Day is evolving once again. After the departure of long time member David Soloway in 2008, along with Mannuel Cerrero and Durijah Lang in 2009 (who left the band to focus on former group Glassjaw), Saves The Day hit the road rocking all their classic tunes with a brand new look. Arun Bali, Rodrigo Palma and Claudio Rivera, now join Conley to round out the Saves The Day lineup. It is with these new members that the band will record Daybreak. As Conley explains, “it makes sense that Daybreak features a new lineup, as thematically the album deals with coming back to Life with a renewed appreciation and attitude of perseverance and acceptance.”

    Now, with the band ready to release the long-anticipated third part to the trilogy, you get the feeling that a new day is truly breaking for Saves The Day. “Daybreak is both an ending and a new beginning,” says Conley. “Daybreak comes back to Life to say, ‘we are here together and we can make it through.’"

  • Into It. Over It.

    Into It. Over It.

    Pop

    Since 2001 I had played, written, recorded and performed in bands. The Progress, Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Start, Map The Growth and Stay Ahead Of The Weather have been a few. In 2007, I wrote, recorded and released a new song every week for an entire year. The free download project was called 52 Weeks. 

    The following year (2009/2010), I wrote and recorded 12 songs about stories and experienced I'd had in 12 different towns. These songs were spread across 6 split 7" records that I shared with the bands CSTVT, Everyone Everywhere, Such Gold, Pswingset, Empire! Empire! and Bob Nanna / Lauren Lo. The collection of all 12 songs is called "Twelve Towns" and is now available through Topshelf Records on one CD/LP collection. During the Summer of 2010, I recorded 5 songs about my experiences in 5 Chicago neighborhoods which appeared on a split CD/LP with my good friend KOJI. That same Summer, some friends and I banded together to write and record 5 songs for a 7" record under the moniker Stay Ahead Of The Weather. It was released in December 2010 by No Sleep Records.

    In July 2011, I recorded 12 brand new songs with the help of Ed Rose at Blacklodge Studios in Eudora, KS. These songs were to be released the following September by No Sleep Records on CD & LP. The album is called "Proper".

  • Hostage Calm

    Hostage Calm

    Heavy Metal

    Please Remain Calm is the punk album of the Great Recession. The Connecticut five-piece has crafted an album that captures the defeat, the heartache--what it feels like to be young in the American Decline. Following up 2010's critically acclaimed self-titled LP, Please Remain Calm combines elements of Springsteen-esque heartland rock with the band's signature blend of 60s pop melody, 70s punk energy and 80s new wave panache. 

    But Please Remain Calm is more than Hostage Calm's opus: it's their manifesto. Like how London Calling captured the gray and grinding Britain of 1979, this album calls to mind the hopeless college student moving back in with her parents, the bank boarding up the house next door, and the impossibility of love in a time where nothing moves forward. Pushing musical boundaries at every turn, Please Remain Calm never loses its feeling of timelessness.
