DAYS DIFFERENCE will be joining All Time Low on a short U.S. tour starting July 9th in Richmond, VA. The pop rock quartet recently signed with Universal Motown who fell for the band’s infectious material which has listeners comparing them to the likes of The Fray and Something Corporate. Originally formed in 2004, Days Difference spent several years honing their propulsive pop sound by opening for artists such as Paramore, Lifehouse, Third Eye Blind, Jack’s Mannequin, and Yellowcard when those artists came through Virginia Beach. In 2007, they released an independent album, Numbers, then embarked on a nationwide tour, in which everything that could have gone wrong did: a tire on their trailer fell off, a show was canceled when the promoter got hit by a car, Jonathan got a concussion playing soccer, Micah broke his collarbone playing football, they received a $500 parking ticket, and to top it all off, the owner of the club where the band were to play one of their final dates died on the day of the show. “I never really believed the whole ‘earn your keep’ thing, but we’ve really paid our dues,” Jeremy says. The tour may have been grueling, but “it taught us a lot,” Jeremy says. “We really grew as a band and as friends. We had some tough times, but we never doubted ourselves.” You can hear that confidence and camaraderie in the songs on their debut album, an all-killer, no filler set that brims with fresh-faced enthusiasm and the wide-ranging talent of this young group of musicians. To help bring out their best, the band’s team enlisted the talents of several veteran co-writers and producers, including Wayne Wilkins (Beyoncé, Natasha Bedingfield), Andrew Frampton (Natasha Bedingfield, Kylie Minogue), Stefanie Ridel Fair (Fergie, Pussycat Dolls), Michael Smidi Smith (Pussycat Dolls, Tupac), and Tim Myers, former bassist for OneRepublic. Myers and Jeremy co-wrote four key tracks: the irresistible first single “Radio Song,” the touching ballad “Imperfections,” and the radio-ready “Falling Into You” and “Magnetized.”
The band just released “Radio Song,” their first single since being signed which they’ll be filming a video for later this week.
Days Difference will be released in fall 2009 on Universal Motown Records.
