- "Um, what day is it?"
From the very start, a Day to Remember have blazed a sonic trail by combining metal and hardcore’s visceral shred with pop-punk’s melodic punch. The band formed seven years ago in Florida and immediately hit the road, establishing a reputation as relentless road dogs. Their first album, 2005’s And Their Name Was Treason, sold nearly 9,000 copies. Their next two records, 2007’s For Those Who Have Heart and last year’s Homesick, sold well too. But a Day to Remember have made their name touring, opening for New Found Glory, playing the Warped Tour, and showing up at the Bamboozle and Download festivals. Their hard work and tenacity have paid off: The group headlines a tour that comes to House of Blues at 6:45 p.m. August Burns Red, Silverstein, Enter Shikari and Veara open. Tickets: $20 advance, $23 day of show. —Brian Baker
