Kicking off 2018 in style, New Years Day are currently on tour with In This Moment and to tide fans over while they’re working on a new album, released Diary Of A Creep in January. The EP sees New Years Day put their spin on 5 tracks that they adore, much along the lines of Metallica‘s Garage Days.
Frontwoman Ash Costello says; “I want to start by saying, it was incredibly difficult to narrow this down to the 5 songs I wanted to cover the most. Narrowing it down to 20 songs was hard! Let alone just 5. 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 worshipped when they were just kids in school, dreaming of being a real musician someday. Honestly, everyday, I cant believe how far I’ve come and how absolutely happy I am that I get to share my music with whoever wants to listen, and these are just a few of the songs that helped me and shaped me along the way. When I was just a middle schooler, trying to get thru those horrible teenage years, I wish I had known then, that someday I would become of the heroes I looked up to, and it would be all thanks to YOU. I am grateful to you for listening and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.”
The EP sees the band link up with Lzzy Hale of Halestorm on Only Happy When It Rains (originally by Garbage), an emotionally charged and powerful rendition of Linkin Park‘s Crawling, Don’t Speak by No Doubt, New Order‘s Bizarre Love Triangle and Pantera‘s Fucking Hostile.
