New Years Day cover Pantera & Linkin Park on new EP

I hear you saying, who are they?

Well, taken from Wikipedia:

New Years Day are an American rock band formed in 2005 in Anaheim, California. After building a reputation strictly through promotion on the social networking website MySpace, the band released its debut self-titled EP in 2006 and their first full-length album My Dear in 2007. Six years after their initial debut, Victim to Villain was finally released, shortly followed by Malevolence in 2015. Malevolence peaked at No. 45 on the Billboard 200, the band’s highest charting thus far.

Their music is self-proclaimed as “Hauntedmansioncore”, a genre categorized by eerie haunted mansion sounds mixed with hard rock music.

Vocalist, Ash Costello.

Now you have had a quick lesson as to who they are, now the news.

Taken from Team Rock.

The group will release six track EP titled ‘Diary Of A Creep’,later this month, featuring five covers and a new recording.

The EP will arrive on January 26 via Red Music/Century Media.

It’ll feature their brand new track Disgust Me, along with covers of Linkin Park’s Crawling, Pantera’s F*cking Hostile, No Doubt’s Don’t Speak, New Order’s Bizarre Love Triangle and Only Happy When It Rains by Garbage, which features a guest appearance from Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale.

Vocalist Ash Costello says: “I want to start by saying that it was incredibly difficult to narrow this down to the five songs I wanted to cover the most. Narrowing it down to 20 songs was hard! Let alone just five.

“It felt very important to me to not only pay tribute to the artists that shaped who I am today, but to share it with all of you.

“It’s easy to dismiss where an artist has come from if you have no clue who they worshiped when they were just kids in school, dreaming of being a real musician someday.”

The band are also working on what will be their fourth studio album – the follow-up to 2015’s Malevolence.

New Years Day will head out on tour with In This Moment across North America later this month.
