A Day To Remember 1

Official press release:

It’s official — platinum-selling rockers A Day To Remember will lead the 2016 Journeys Alternative Press Music Awards, fueled by Monster Energy as headliners! ADTR join additional supporters Good Charlotte, Yellowcard, Of Mice & Men, Papa Roach, BABYMETAL, Issues, The Maine, Mayday Parade and Beartooth, with more performers still to be announced.

This year’s APMAs, hosted by Alex Gaskarth and Jack Barakat of eight-time AP cover stars All Time Low, will broadcast live the evening of July 18 from the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio. This year, the APMAs are offering a “punk-rock convention” as an alternative to the Republican National Convention taking place in the magazine’s hometown of Cleveland that night.

A Day To Remember guitarist and Best Guitarist award nominee Kevin Skaff states:

“We’re really excited to be playing at this year’s APMAs. Also, do I get an award for perfect attendance or nah? And thank you for nominating me for ‘Best Guitarist’. It’s an honor!”

In addition to performing at this year’s APMAs, A Day To Remember — featuring vocalist Jeremy McKinnon, guitarists Kevin Skaff and Neil Westfall, bassist Joshua Woodard and drummer Alex Shelnutt — is hitting the road with Blink-182 for a summer arena tour set to kick off July 22 at Viejas Arena in San Diego, CA. News of the tour follows the recent Zane Lowe/Beats 1 Radio Show premiere of A Day To Remember’s new single and video, “Paranoia”, which has already amassed more than 3 million Spotify streams and 2.5 million YouTube views – click HERE to watch. Recorded with producer Bill Stevenson (Descendants, Black Flag) and mixed by Grammy winner Andy Wallace (Foo Fighters, Slayer), “Paranoia” is the band’s first new music since 2013’s Common Courtesy. Over the course of the past several years, each of ADTR’s releases have hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock, Indie and/or Alternative Charts, they’ve sold more than a million units, racked up over 400 million Spotify streams and 500 million YouTube views, racked up two gold-selling albums and singles (and one silver album in the UK) and sold out entire continental tours, amassing a global fanbase whose members number in the millions. All of which explains why Rolling Stone called them “An Artist You Need To Know.”
