A Day To Remember: A Day to Remember took a while to reach acclaim and headlining tour dates, mostly because the band is a true DIY success story. The band worked tirelessly to promote themselves and beg to play concert dates before hitting it big, but all the hard work paid off for this metalcore/pop punk band. "Metalcore slash pop punk?" you may cry. While many bands blend elements of the two into their music, A Day to Remember has both hard, screaming metal songs as well as melodic pop punk songs, all on the same album! After years of playing small concert dates that they painstakingly set up themselves, A Day to Remember is headlining a number of tour dates in 2011, including concert dates with Bring Me the Horizon and a headlining spot on Warped Tour dates in 2011.

The band was formed in 2003 in Ocala, Florida, by Neil Westfall (rhythm guitar), Tom Denney (lead guitar), Joshua Woodard (bass), and Bobby Scruggs (drums), after all being in separate local bands. The group scraped together some songs and embarked on a 200-concert date DIY tour. The band was soon signed to Indianola Records and their debut album, And Their Name Was Treason, was released in 2005.

Shortly after signing with Victory, the band replaced drummer Bobby Scruggs with Alex Shellnutt and headed to the studios to record For Those Who Have Heart. The album was released in January 2007 and broke into indie and newcomer charts almost immediately. With the success of the album, A Day to Remember embarked on a number of mainstream tour dates, including performances at Bamboozle Left and Right in 2008 and concert dates on the 2008 Warped Tour. In 2008, A Day to Remember embarked on a series of concert dates across Australia with Parkway Drive, both bands enjoying the success that hardcore music was bringing them. Even with constant concert dates, the group found time to record their third album, Homesick, released at the end of 2008.

In June 2009, lead guitarist Tom Denney left the band to focus on his family and his burgeoning recording career. Despite being replaced by Kevin Skaff (formerly of label-mate Four Letter Lie), Denney has contributed to A Day to Remember's new material as a writer. Following Denney's departure, A Day to Remember played their first headlining tour dates in September, 2009, joining up with Parkway Drive again on The Pulling Your Pud Tour. A Day to Remember's latest album is What Separates Me From You, released in 2010, which has brought the band even more mainstream success.

After extensively touring in promotion of the album, A Day to Remember performed even more tour dates in 2011 for their What Separates Me From You Tour. A Day to Remember also has a number of concert dates planned for South America starting June 7 and ending on June 12, right before they head back stateside. A Day to Remember will canvass the US with concert dates yet again before ending their 2011 tour dates. With so many chances to catch A Day to Remember with other great metal acts, fans should check Eventful's schedule to see when the band is coming to their area.
