A Day To Remember has become so successful over the last half decade that sometimes we forget that they started out as a little band from Ocala.
Fans and critics alike have described the band’s sound as “pop-mosh” and “popcore”. Frontman Jeremy McKinnon has said of the band’s heavy but catchy sound: “It’s weird. See it’s funny because we have been doing this for so long. When we started, this shit was not cool. EVERYONE told us mixing the two genres wouldn’t work. Hell, a lot of people still feel that way. We’ve just always played what we wanted to hear, and to be honest people weren’t doing it back then. We loved pop punk, we loved hardcore bands, and we couldn’t decide what to be. So we said fuck it. Let’s do them both.
The band has delivered such memorable modern rock hits as “All I Want,” “Have Faith in Me,” “The Downfall of Us All,” and is renowned the world over as a powerhouse live act.
