DARK NEW DAY
OFFERS BONUS TRACK WITH “˜NEW TRADITION’ ALBUM
DUE OUT FEBRUARY 28 ON GOOMBA MUSIC
February 14, 2012 — As previously announced, DARK NEW DAY–Clint Lowery (guitarist from Sevendust), Will Hunt (drummer from Evanescence), Troy McLawhorn (guitarist from Evanescence), Brett Hestla (lead singer/guitarist from Virgos Merlot) and Corey Lowery (bassist from Stereomud and Eye Empire)””will release their highly anticipated sophomore album,  NEW TRADITION, February 28 on Goomba Music (distributed by eOne Music).
To make the release extra special, the band is offering a bonus track to fans who buy the full album and send in a photo of themselves holding the CD or a digital photo of their purchase online.   A MP3 of Rising Sun” will be available for a limited time only (February 28 through March 6).   Photos can be e-mailed to  [email protected]  or mailed to Goomba Music, 6348 N. Milwaukee Ave., Suite 301, Chicago, IL 60646 (must be postmarked by March 6).   Goomba Music will then e-mail the song to the fans directly.
‘Rising Sun’ is a cool tune in the history of DND,” explains drummer Will Hunt.   We actually said before writing it, in not so many words, let’s write as basic a rock song as we can for the sake of doing it because we can.   It’s kinda getting back to our formidable “˜roots.’  It’s really just about getting in your car, crankin’ up some jams, and headin’ out to get rowdy with your friends.  Very different for us lyrically and stylistically.”
NEW TRADITION  is the follow-up to 2005’s debut album,  TWELVE YEAR SILENCE, which was released on Warner Bros. Records.   In 2006, the band released  THE BLACK PORCH ACOUSTIC SESSIONS  EP after being on tour for over a year with Chevelle, Seether, Crossfade, and many others.   After the EP’s release, they got to work on what would eventually be their second album, known at the time as  HAIL MARY.   Going through many employee and  management changes, Warner Bros. decided to release the band from their contract, leaving  the  HAIL MARY  album to be unreleased.   It was at this point that  DARK NEW DAY  went on a hiatus, with the members either returning to their  previous  bands or venturing out into new projects.
The fire for new  DARK NEW DAY  material continued to burn in both the band members and the  diehard fan base alike.  The band came together in  2011 to compile tracks fromHAIL MARY, along with newly written and recorded songs, for a special album  which will be  released  as a “Thank You” to all the loyal fans  that have continued to follow the band and request more material from the group.
