Indianapolis favorite HASTE THE DAY is set to release its third album, "Pressure The Hinges", on March 20 via Solid State Records. Produced by GGGarth Richardson (RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, CHEVELLE), "Pressure The Hinges" "builds dramatically" upon the success of previous efforts "Burning Bridges" (2004) and "When Everything Falls Apart" (2005), which sold over 100,000 copies combined nationwide, according to a press release.
Commented drummer Devin Chaulk: "'Pressure The Hinges' is a more diverse and mature record than anything HASTE THE DAY has released to date. It's heavier and yet it's more melodic. It's more brutal and at the same time, more beautiful. We've broadened the spectrum of sound on this record. We took the elements of HASTE THE DAY that people have embraced, which are heaviness and melody, and stepped them up a notch. We've never been so proud and we can't wait to unleash it on our fans, and introduce it to those who haven't heard us before. We're stoked, and we think others will be too."
In addition to the single-disc album release, a "deluxe version" of the album will be available, including three bonus tracks as well as a bonus DVD disc including two live shows, former vocalist Jimmy Ryan's final performance with the band, thre past music videos, behind-the-scenes studio footage and a plethora of bonus materials. The first single released from the album will be the track "Stitches".
Known for their dynamic, aggressive and fiery live performances, HASTE THE DAY have become absolute road dogs, performing roughly 300 dates a year. 2007 will be no diferent as the band will be hitting the road on tour co-headlining with FROM AUTUMN TO ASHES starting March 6 in Buffalo, NY.
