A Day to Remember (abb. ADTR) is a rock band formed in 2003 in Ocala, Florida. They are said to have influences in many different genres, including pop punk, metalcore, emo and even death metal. The band’s music has been described as “a mixture of death metal grunts and the cheesy tunes from pop punk” and as a cross between “lively pop punk and tough metalcore”.
ADTR – The Beginnings
After playing in various bands in their hometown Ocala, this modern metal music band formed in 2003 with singer Jeremy McKinnon, guitarists Tom Denney and Neil Westfall, drummer Bobby Scruggs and bassist Joshua Woodard. Early, after the group’s formation, the rock music band went on their own tour in which they performed over 200 shows, thus making a name for themselves. They signed with Indianola Records and recorded their debut album titled ‘And Their Name Was Treason’ in May 2005.
Contract With Victory Records
A year later. this rock music band signed a contract with Victory Records and quickly started working on their second album, entitled For Those Who Have Heart , with new drummer Alex Shellnutt. In 2008, they released the Deluxe version of For Those Who Have Heart , their first DVD recorded in their hometown (Ocala), with different versions of the songs. In 2009, they released their third studio album, Homesick.
The Final Work
In July 2010, the band started recording their fourth album, called What Separates Me From You, which was released on November 16 of the same year. On December 21, 2012, two years after the release of the last album, the band released the song “Violence (Enough Is Enough)”, which, the following year, appeared on the tracklist of their fifth studio work, “Common Courtesy”. The band’s last album, entitled “Bad Vibrations”, was released on August 19, 2016.
