Days In December Biography
In a world as fickle as the modern UK rock scene, with already transient audiences continually bombarded by media hyperbole and countless Next Big Things, there are too few bands willing to stick to their guns; too few truly in it for the long haul. London’s Days In December are one of the few exceptions. Formed in January 2004, Days In December vocalist Daniel Leigh, guitarists Phil Kinman and Robb Wybrow, drummer Gary Tough, and bassist Rob Turnbridge have made considerable waves, their assured, accessible blend of metal, melody and rock n’ roll verve making a beeline for the hearts and minds of rock fans nationwide. Days In December have been no industry slouches, their aptly title debut E.P ‘Countless Hours Making Waves’ (released in 2004 on Mighty Atom) dubbed Kerrang’s single of the week, while the likes of Metal Hammer, Rock Sound, and Iron Maiden’s very own Bruce Dickinson have tipped the quintet for bigger and better things than the bubbling but limited UK underground. The E.P was also recently released in Germany and Japan, racking up sales in the thousands and it’s cerebral take on melody and aggression has got international mouths moving. Days In December have racked up tours alongside Funeral For A Friend (whose drummer Ryan Richards is such a fan that he lent his tonsils to the track ‘Last Chance Before The Storm’), Bullet For My Valentine (on the Kerrang most wanted tour), Tokyo Rose, Beloved, Dead Poetic, Armour For Sleep, as well as notching up stage time on the 2005 ‘Taste Of Chaos’ UK leg and at the 2006 Full Ponty and NASS events.
The next instalment in Days In December’s recorded legacy continued with the release of the mini album ‘Deleted Scenes’, which was released on the October 2nd 2006 via Deck Cheese Recordings. As much a taster for the bands forthcoming full length as a stand alone showcase of where Days In December are headed, ‘Deleted Scenes’ is an eclectic collection of metallic riffs and post hardcore swagger, perfectly iced with soaring melody, anthemic choruses and a mischievous tip of the hat to more classic rock sounds. The release has already received great press similar to that of the 'Countless Hours Making Waves', winning the Scuzz TV New Blood competition in December 2006 which resulted in their video for ‘Five Kings’ being added to the main play list on the channel; This coincided with a session at the prestigious BBC Maida Vale Studios where the band recorded four tracks which were aired on the Radio One Rock Show. Kerrang! Followed up its previous single of the week award with a glowing 4K review while Metal Hammer and Rocksound bestowed praise on the band with regards to the future, proclaiming the next full length release to be hotly anticipated. With the progress the band has made thus far, it’s an exciting time as they make major strides and push towards a future where the exception becomes the rule.
