so ive recently discovered Days of the New, who's singer, Travis Meeks, auditioned for Velvet Revolver in the early days....for those of you that dont know them theyre described as "Post-Grunge Alternative Rock"

 

its all acoustic stuff, but pretty rockin acoustic stuff IMO!! heres some of the tunes ive been listening to the most:

 

The hits:

 

Touch, Peel and Stand:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sY57T9kbLBo...127&index=0

 

The Downtown (my fave out of these three):

 

Shelf In The Room:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcPVhKszXjY...127&index=1

 

this one involves putting a captcha in and its only audio but its by far my fave song by them, its also the most driving!

 

Best of Life:

its not gonna be everyones cup of tea, for fans of Alice In Chains and Pearl Jam i'd say (the good grunge bands basically!)

I had the debut on cd back when it came out.

Radio stations in the US played the living hell out of "Touch, Peel and Stand" and "Shelf in the Room". They also played the first single from the follow up disc(which was just Travis Meeks after firing the rest of the band and they went and started Tantric), I think the song was called "Enemy". Days of the New to me and most of the media were an acoustic Alice in Chains sounding band. They were a good band and I think they/Travis recorded 3 cds back then but then I think he had some type of drug problem if memory serves. I believe Travis was originally from Indiana but the band had moved to Lexington Kentucky I think and that's where they broke out of. As mentioned above though the rest of the band only lasted for the first disc before Travis fired them. They did open for Metallica on thee Re-Load" tour in 1998 opening before Jerry Cantrell's solo band(which featured Queensryche's Chris Degarmo after leaving 'Ryche) and 'Tallica. I saw that tour but missed DOTN and only got to see Cantrell and Metallica. DOTN were pretty big over here though on that first release.

i know they released 3 albums (yellow, Green and Red i think??) i just ordered the first one because of "The Downtown"

 

tbh, i wasnt sure how big they were because i discovered them from the Crow TV series which, like the movie, had a reputation for using underground music in it....so i wasnt sure how mainstream they were :P

 

but im really digging it for some reason, i sorta switch between 80s rocker mode and 90s grunge/alternative mode, i loev both eras tbh :D

I know you're an AIC fan but do you have the new disc yet? Good stuff IMO.

not yet, i liked Check my Brain but got bored of Looking in View....although someone sent it to me as mp3s, im gonna get round to buying it eventually but the new Kiss album actually takes priority :P

 

but saying that, i feel like ditching my cowboy boots, cutting my hair and start wearing more long sleeve shirts :P

I own the debut cd and it is pretty decent. Nice change of pace. I never got real excited about it enough to buy any more of them and I've seen a few in the pawn shops from time to time.
