Original Days Of The New Line-Up Re-Unite: Coming To Poughkeepsie
The original line-up of Days Of The New are getting back together for a new EP and tour! Their debut album went plantinum after they burst onto the scene in 1997.
However, the success was short lived as the band fell apart after a ’98 tour with Metallica and Jerry Cantrell. The entire band split, leaving lead singer Travis Meeks to continue on with new musicians under the Days Of The New moniker. Bassist Jesse Vest, guitarist Todd Whitener and drummer Matt Taul went on to form the band Tantric.
When the tour kicks off June 27th in Illinois, the band will have not taken the stage together in 16 years. Work continues on a new EP and they’ll be road testing material this summer.
