Screaming out our lungs with New Years Day


Opening up the show with Kill or Be Killed, the band came out with eccentric energy that had the crowd headbangin’ their necks numb. New Years Day came out with high level energy that bounced off of the crowd which practically shook the venue. As the night proceeds, two then three mosh pits start to form and most are pushed back for the circle to become wider and wider and with anticipation the of the breakdown. The crowd starts to move with the mosh pits and the intensity of the lyrics of the sing being played, allows courage within some concert-goers to climb above the crowd to crowd surf. Security escorted the crowd surfers back down off the crowd safely and protected the band members on the stage. As the band goes down the setlist of the night, the crowd becomes more hype dances for the rock gods with Ash Costello.

As the riff of ‘Scream’ starts to play through the crowds ear drums, the ladies closest to the barriers starts to sing the lyrics along with Ash Costello, the Lead singer. The band has a high end interacting energy that every fan loves with their favorite bands. During New Years Day set, the lead guitar and bassist, Austin Ingerman and Nikki Misery went out in to the crowd and rocked out with fans within the sides of the venue, as Ash Costello sung her heart out. For the Final Song, Defame Me was a highly intense crowd interacting song, which the chorus was sung loud and proud with Ash Costello. New Years Day is a band that does not disappoints when it comes to a studio and live version of their songs. New Years Day knows how to get the crowd moving and rocking out with the band. After their set ended, they announced to the crowd they were going to be on the side of the venue having a meet and greet with each and every fan that was interested with having a photo, signed merch or a simple chat with the band. The way the Band interacts with their fanbase is inspiring and no matter how well-known their reputation become, they will remain humble and always interact with their fans.

Formed in 2005,  New Years Day has a mix of Alternative metal, post Hardcore and power pop-mix. The band last album, Malevolence peaked to number 45 on the Billboard 200, in 2015. The bands new released Single “Skeleton” from their upcoming 2019 album, which was a banger for New Years Day fans who has been looking for new music from the band. New Years Day has a kick ass line up from having one of the baddest rock female lead singer right after Maria Brink from In This Moment. To the baddest guitar riffs from Nikki Misery and Autin Ingerman as lead guitar, Frankie Sil as the bassist and  headbanding drums from drummer James Renshaw.
