The new "supergroup" featuring Brett Hestla (ex-CREED, VIRGOS MERLOT) on vocals, Will Hunt (ex-SKRAPE, TOMMY LEE) on drums, Clint Lowery (ex-SEVENDUST) on guitar, Clint's brother Corey Lowery (ex-STEREOMUD, STUCK MOJO) on bass, and Troy McLawhorn (ex-DOUBLE DRIVE) on guitar has changed its name to DARK NEW DAY from the previously announced DARK BLUE. No reason was given for the name change.
DARK NEW DAY are currently mixing their debut album with producer/mixer Ben Grosse, who has previously worked with FILTER, FUEL, SEVENDUST and ALTER BRIDGE. A June release via Warner Bros. Records is expected.
As previously reported, DARK NEW DAY will make their live debut on Saturday, February 19 at Wills Pub in Orlando, Florida. All proceeds from the gig, which will also feature a one-off reunion by SKRAPE, will go to the family of Sam Verrella, the owner of ARS studio, who he sadly passed away on December 31, leaving his wife and newborn son behind.
