DARK NEW DAY guitarist Clint Lowery, who has spent most of this year fulfilling his touring duties with KORN, has issued the following update:
"I'm so excited about going into the studio with the [DARK NEW DAY] guys. I'm having fun on the KORN tour but my heart is with DARK NEW DAY. The songs you hear on [the DARK NEW DAY MySpace page] that are new are demos we've done. The actual songs well do in September will be amazing. Some of the demo songs you've heard may show up on the record but it's gonna be an amazing record. [Producer] Dave Bendeth is gonna pull out stuff from us we didn't know existed. It's been awhile since we've been been gone but we're coming back with some serious shit to prove. Excuse my French. But we won't walk out of that studio until we have a serious DARK NEW DAY record. Not long now."
In addition to Clint, DARK NEW DAY features Brett Hestla (ex-CREED, VIRGOS MERLOT) on vocals, Will Hunt (EVANESCENCE, ex-SKRAPE, TOMMY LEE) on drums, Clint's brother Corey Lowery (ex-STEREOMUD, STUCK MOJO) on bass, and Troy McLawhorn (EVANESCENCE, ex-DOUBLE DRIVE) on guitar.
DARK NEW DAY released its debut album, "Twelve Year Silence", in June of 2005. The disc featured the single "Brother".
Clint Lowery was arrested on July 5 at the Hodokvas Festival in Piestany, Slovakia after a "wild, drunken night" at the event, which ended with the guitarist trashing his room. Lowery was released the following afternoon from police custody after apologizing and paying for the damages.
