Daylight Dies to tour with Candlemass, new album imminent

Daylight Dies return with their latest epic doom opus, Lost To The Living. The record hits stores June 24, 2008 and will prove to the planet that this band is one of the best contemporary acts of their genre.

Their US tour with Candlemass begins this week and sweeps across the country, showcasing some material from the new album as well as their previous works.

Interviews are available with the band via email, phone or in-person along the tour, so get in touch with Earsplit now with all requests.
Mixed at Fascination Street Studios/Sweden by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia), Lost to the Living features nine new songs from this cherished, North Carolina-based doom metal band. Working with Travis Smith (Amon Amarth, Soilwork) for the album’s packaging, it promises to be another fan and critic favorite. “We all feel confident this is the strongest album we’ve made,” says drummer Jesse Haff. “The material is a mix of beautiful, melancholic leads and harsh dissonant rhythms; all the despair-driven hooks and dark atmosphere you’ve come to expect from us.”

Formed in 1996, Daylight Dies drummer Haff with guitarist Barre Gambling slowly crafted songs that would make their appearance on the band’s 2002 debut No Reply (Relapse). Their second album, the impressive Dismantling Devotion, was released March 2006 via Candlelight Records.  A US tour with Moonspell and friends Katatonia followed, and the band (including vocalist Nathan Ellis, bassist Egan O’Rourke, guitarist Charley Shackelford, together with Gambling and Haff) completed 2006 on an all-time high.
