The good people at Noise Cartel are spoiling us today. Hot on the heels of the announcement that Enter Shikari have added London’s Arcane Roots to the bill of their Alexandra Palace headline show later this month we are now sent the news that new Years day have launched a new video.
Without doubt new Years Day were one of my favorite new finds from last years festival season. I saw new Years Day at Download festival and was totally blown away by the sheer energy and intensity of their live performance. I also had the pleasure of interviewing the and photographing New Years Day so if you missed it you can catch up here.
New Years Day have certainly caught the energy of their live performance in the newly launched video for the track “I’m About To Break You” from the stunningly excellent Malevolence album.
Vocalist Ash Costello states, “This video was so much fun to make! We are big fans of Mad-Max and have always wanted to make a post-apocolyptic style video so i’m glad we pulled it out for “I’m About to Break You.” The location we filmed at was a few hours away from Los Angeles and they put on a festival every year called ‘Wasteland Weekend’ that is dedicated to the post-apocolyptic lifestyle. We had a blast making props and riding around in those amazing cars. Having fans and friends join us as extras made it icing on the cake.”
NEW YEARS DAY who are currently on the ‘Hate Me’ tour with Escape The Fate & label mates Like A Storm, have released their third full length studio album ‘Malevolence’ in October 2015, which scored them their highest first week sales and Billboard Top 200 at #45. ‘Malevolence’ was produced by Erik Ron (Motionless In White, Issues) and is the band’s first release on Another Century Records.
