Last week A Day To Remember dropped a new song on an unsuspecting audience. Titled “Paranoia,” the hard rock track was followed a day after with a video that garnered nearly 800 thousand views in just four days.
According to Jeremy McKinnon, ADTR’s frontman, the song came together organically. “We took some time to get together and write with no real expectations,” says the singer. The band took a trek up to Fort Collins, CO where they’d collaborate with Descendants’ Bill Stevenson and recording engineer Jason Livermore. “That song just kind of came out of nowhere one day—and we were all really pumped on it. We went to New York and had Andy Wallace mix it. If people aren’t familiar with who he is, he’s one of the best mixers of all time if not the best mixer of all time.”
Fans immediately theorized that a new album must be imminent, especially since the band would be heading out on tour with Parkway Drive and State Champs this May. Naturally, they must be touring new music, right?
“Paranoia,” says Jeremy McKinnon, is just a one-off. “We wanted to get together and work out some stuff that we’d been tossing around. We have no plans on releasing an album any time soon. There’s nothing really set in stone. That’s really it. I guess we’ll know more as it comes.”
A Day To Remember will headline their own Self Help Festival this Saturday, March 19. Tickets are available here.
