Good news for all the fans of Dark New Day. Earlier this year, the band released its new long-awaited album, New Tradition. Years had passed between the release of that album, and the band’s previous release. There was even a much talked about long lost album that never did see the light of day for a variety of reasons. Now thanks to a deal with Pavement Music, Dark New Day’s album, Hail Mary will finally see the light of day.
Drummer Will Hunt commented on this new development. He said of the announcement, “We in Dark New Day are excited that our “lost” album is finally going to get proper release and treatment it deserves. We’re excited for fans to hear what two years of writing, struggle, and growth did for us. You’ll hear a band that wasn’t afraid to embrace experimentation and forge new sonic territory. You’ll also hear a band at times grind out some of the darkest, heaviest, lyrically intense music of its career. This record is sonically amazing, and we’re very proud of it. We hope that this is just a stepping stone to another record in the very near future. Enjoy!”
Pavement A&R Director Tim King also commented on this new deal between Dark New Day and Pavement Music. He said, “I’ve been a fan of Dark New Day ever since I bought the debut at Best Buy back in 2005 (yes I supported my friends and bought the album!!). As their A&R guy I’m thrilled to be able to work Hail Mary but as a fan, I’m even more excited to let everyone finally hear this amazing album!”
Hail Mary will be released via Pavement Music and MRI/Red on February 19th in the United States. It will be released via SPV in Europe.
