On Saturday, November 6, 2021, The St. Augustine Amphitheatre will welcome metalcore group A Day to Remember with special guests Asking Alexandria and Point North. Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 6 at 10:00am at The St. Augustine Amphitheatre Box Office and online at Ticketmaster.com.
A metalcore group based out of Florida, A Day to Rememberemerged in 2003 with a sound that draws from a wide array of genres including emo, pop-punk, hardcore, and heavy metal — affectionately referred to by their fans as “pop mosh.” Debuting in 2005 with And Their Name Was Treason, the band caught fire with the releases of Homesick (2009) and What Separates Me from You (2010), both of which were certified gold. Despite enduring myriad changes in personnel and label woes, they continued to hone their signature “easycore” sound on the Top Five release Bad Vibrations (2016) and You’re Welcome (2021).
After a very brief period of identity crisis and vocalist turmoil, the members of Asking Alexandria reintroduced themselves with prodigal frontman Danny Worsnop on the band’s fifth full-length, Asking Alexandria. Produced by Matt Good (From First To Last), this eponymous return is the group’s most polished effort to date, less raw and muscular than past albums. While this evolution might prove divisive to longtime fans, Asking Alexandria remains highly enjoyable, a triumphant offering that benefits as much from familiarity as it does from pure power and Worsnop’s inimitable presence.
