New Years Day To Release Special EP Later This Year


In a new interview with the Rock Sound Podcast, New Years Day frontwoman Ash Costello shared that the band had actually finished a new record right before Vans Warped Tour, but scrapped the entire thing, as they weren't quite happy with the direction the music written had taken.

To give the fans a little something to close the gap between the last record (Malevolence, 2015) and the next one, which could be a while, the band is releasing a special EP somewhere in November, Costello shares. ​

Here's what she shared on the Rock Sound podcast:

"We actually, right before Warped, spent three, almost four weeks in the studio and we wrote nearly 20 songs and when we were done - we scrapped all of them!

We were just not feeling it, it wasn't what we wanted, man even looking back I'm like, 'I can't believe we decided to do that' because even though it didn't turn out the way we wanted it, we put in a lot of hard work... and that was right before Warped Tour and we didn't have time to do anything else.

So we get home from Warped Tour and we go, 'Okay, it's going to be a while until this next album comes out because we're definitely feeling the pressure on this one'... This time we all agreed we're going to let the album tell us when it's done.

So in the meantime we did an EP that we're going to release next month just to hold everyone over... of our favourite songs that we covered, which I'm actually really excited about.

It's five covers, one original song... it's one of the ones we really loved and we played it at Warped Tour, it's called 'Disgust Me'.

We decided to cover 'Fucking Hostile' by Pantera... I just really wanted people to see a girl could do it just fine, because when I first pitched it they go, 'Ooooh, it's really hard, think you can?' and I was like, 'Are you fucking kidding me? Give me the fucking song! Let me show you' and it came out brilliant."

Are you excited to hear New Years Day's (mostly) cover EP?
