Saves the Day Return to Equal Vision for New Album

BY Gregory AdamsPublished Jul 29, 2013

Fifteen years after Saves the Day issued their speedy, melodic hardcore debut Can't Slow Down through Equal Vision Records, the New Jersey-bred band have announced they've rejoined the label to release their upcoming self-titled LP.

A press release confirms that the band's eighth long-player drops September 17 through Equal Vision and side-label Rory Records, run by Say Anything member Max Bemis. As previously reported, the band started working on the LP earlier this year at Michigan's Rancho Recordo, and the record was partially funded by a successful crowd-sourcing campaign. Portions of the proceeds are also being offered to the Occupy Sandy foundation.

The 11-song LP is Saves the Day's first with new drummer Dennis Wilson (Every Avenue, This Is Hell) and was produced by the band, engineered by Marc Hudson and mixed by Rob Schnapf. It's the first time the unit have worked with Schnapf since 2003's In Reverie and the first LP for Equal Vision since their 1999 sophomore effort Through Being Cool.

"Hard to believe it's been 15 years since we put out the debut Saves The Day album on Equal Vision Records. Back then, I was just a kid, 17 years old and still in high school," frontman Chris Conley said in a statement, praising the label for taking a chance on them back in the '90s. "After all these years, I still hold holy gratitude in my heart for [Equal Vision founder Steve Reddy] and his faith in our music. Signing back to Equal Vision feels like coming home."  

As previously reported, Saves the Day will support the LP this fall on a North American tour that has them hitting up Vancouver and Toronto along the way. You can get the show specifics beneath the LP's tracklisting, plus listen to the previously premiered single "Remember."
