“Fuckin’ News Years Day man, best band ever. New Years Day!”

New Years Day is an American rock band formed in Anaheim, California in 2005. 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.

Last year, New Years Day hit a career milestone and performed at the 2017 Alternative Press Music Awards (APMAs) with guest vocalist Lzzy Hale. The band also headlined the 2017 Vans Warped Tour alongside other main stage acts like Bowling for Soup, Falling in Reverse and CKY. On June 1, 2017 it was announced they would be included in the seventh installment of the Fearless Records compilation Punk Goes Pop, covering Kehlani’s “Gangsta” from the movie Suicide Squad. The album was released on July 14, 2017. After completing a month-long festival run with Halestorm on the 2017 “Halloween Scream Tour”, both Valentyne and Ingram quietly parted ways with the band. New Years Day went on the the 2018 “Witching Hour Tour” in support of In This Moment alongside special guest, P.O.D., this year.
