I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve listened to [lastfm]A Day To Remember[/lastfm]‘s last album, Homesick, a million times now (along with their other albums) and I’m ready for their new music. With the release of their next full-length album, What Separates Me From You, due out November 16th, new full tracks are inevitably going to be released soon. A small snippet of a track was released this morning, but a minute preview just doesn’t cut it for me.

“We actually just finished tracking it (WSMFY) the other day, and I completely lost my voice while doing it,” said singer Jeremy McKinnon.

For weeks we’ve been hassling our friends at Victory Records to let us get our hands on the band’s newest single, “All I Want,” and they pulled through in a big way. Check out the world premiere of “All I Want,” take a look at the album art for WSMFY, and scope out all the ADTR coverage from Epicenter Twenty-Ten.

You’re welcome.


“All I Want” is now available at the iTunes store here!

Song a little soft for some of you older ADTR fans? Have no fear, the band released a preview of another track “2nd Sucks” earlier today and it’s anything BUT soft. Check it out here.

We went on really crappy tours where we played to 30 kids a night and it was always a slow, growing thing that just kept happening for us over the years. That’s happened with every record, and we just kept touring and working at it and here we are today.”

Bassist Josh Woodard had this advice for up and coming bands: “Just do what you do. Continue to write songs and play as many shows as you can. That’s what we did. We sucked when we started but you gotta just keep pushing. And if you want it bad enough, things happen to people who work hard.”

When asked if they got their band name from the movies titled A Day To Remember, McKinnon shuffled the mic over to drummer Alex Shelnutt. “I dont know why I’m answering this question because I wasn’t in the band, but… I know the story. Pretty much the Cliffnotes version is it was called something else. I don’t remember what it was called.” McKinnon chimed in and said “‘End Of An Era’…for one day.” Shelnutt added “Thats what the band was called. Then a guy joined the band, his girlfriend made up the band name and he sucked, so he got kicked out but the band name stayed.” McKinnon also added, “And when it comes to the movies, none of us have actually seen the movies. Maybe we should see them since we’re kind of represented by that now.”

[pullquote quote="We've always just kind of done what we wanted to do and kids just responded to it" credit="Jeremy McKinnon - ADTR"]When asked to describe what kind of band they are, Shelnutt said,”We’re just fun.” McKinnon said, “We just kind of do what we want. We’re kind of like a mixture of four bands in one. We’ve always just kind of done what we wanted to do and kids just responded to it.” The mic made it’s way over to Woodard, who also added “That’s it. We just wrote music that we wanted to hear and wanted to be a part of and whatever it came out as is what we were and it’s kind of what we’ve just been doin’. Just whatever we want to do.”

The band came in the studio and performed “Have Faith In Me,” “Homesick,” and “Monument” acoustic a few months ago, check the videos out here.
