Daylight Dies To Issue New Single

Raleigh-based DAYLIGHT DIES have issued the following update:

"Time is drawing near to depart for our North American tour with CANDLEMASS. We've made the transition from recording to rehearsing and are busy figuring out set lists and running order. We plan on playing a couple songs off of the new album Lost To The Living despite the fact it won't be released until shortly after the tour ends (June 24). While we most likely won't be able to sell the album during the tour, we've put together a limited single which will only be sold on the tour and directly through Candlelight, and on Daylightdies.com if copies remain after the tour.

The single is entitled 'A Portrait In White' and will contain the song of the same name from Lost To The Living, and two rare demos: 'Lies That Bind' (2004) and 'I Wait' (2001) as well as the 'Lies that Bind' video. The single will be strictly limited to 1,000 copies. Here (click photo) is the cover of the single.

We will also be selling tour shirts with this artwork on tour and may have some available on daylightdies.com fairly shortly as well.

Lost To The Living is completely finished and everyone couldn't be happier with the result. We hope to share a sample with you before too long. The running order of the album is as follows: 'Cathedral', 'A Portrait In White', 'A Subtle Violence', 'And A Slow Surrender', 'At A Loss', 'Woke Up Lost', 'Descending', 'Last Alone', 'The Morning Light'."

Daylight Dies Reveal New Album Cover

North Carolina-based DAYLIGHT DIES has issued the following update:

"As we speak, our new album 'Lost to the Living' is being mixed by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden. We are also nearing completion of the layout together with Travis Smith, which includes art and lyrics for every song. We went for a stark and dramatic approach this time: matte black paper, with stencil images in glossy black ink. Text logos in silver. Unfortunately it's impossible to properly render precisely what this will look like on a computer screen, so we've altered the cover so the glossy black is a dark shade of grey, and the text/logo is a lighter shade of grey. Nevertheless, here's the cover of our new album.

"The album will be released by Candlelight Records on June 24th and it will be available for pre-order on daylightdies.com before too long."

Track listing is (not final running order):

01. Cathedral
02. Descending
03. A Subtle Violence
04. And a Slow Surrender
05. Last Alone
06. Woke Up Lost
07. The Morning Light
08. At a Loss
09. A Portrait in White

The members of DAYLIGHT DIES are readying themselves for a busy spring with their upcoming tour alongside CANDLEMASS. The trek, set to kick off May 19, finds the band in direct support to the Swedish metal legends and represents their second national tour since signing with Candlelight Records in late 2005.

Daylight Dies Announce Album Release Date

The members of the North Carolina-based DAYLIGHT DIES are readying themselves for a busy spring with their upcoming tour alongside CANDLEMASS and release of their third album, "Lost to the Living". The tour, set to kick off May 19, finds the band in direct support to the Swedish metal legends and represents their second national tour since signing with Candlelight Records in late 2005. The cross-country tour wraps up two weeks prior to the anticipated June 24 album release date.

In the final mixing process at Fascination Street Studios, Sweden by Jens Bogren (OPETH, AMON AMARTH, KATATONIA), "Lost to the Living" features nine new songs from the cherished doom metal band. Working with Travis Smith (OPETH, SOILWORK, KATATONIA) for the album’s packaging, it promises to be another fan and critic favorite.

Track listing as of press time (not confirmed running order) is:

01. Cathedral
02. Descending
03. A Subtle Violence
04. And a Slow Surrender
05. Last Alone
06. Woke Up Lost

"Everyone is taking a little time to catch their breath after working hard on bringing 'Lost to the Living' to life," says DAYLIGHT DIES drummer Jesse Haff. "We've continued to refine the music up until the last minute it was recorded and we all feel confident this is the strongest album we've made. As stated previously, the material is a mix of beautiful melancholic leads and harsh dissonant rhythms; despair driven hooks and the overall dark atmosphere you've come to expect from us. After an exhausting recording process, the one thing on all of our minds is the upcoming tour. We can't wait."

Daylight Dies Issue Recording Update

North Carolina-based metallers DAYLIGHT DIES have issued the following update:

"The end of the recording sessions for our new album, 'Lost to the Living', draws near. Barre [Gambling, guitar] and Egan [O'Rourke, bass] worked solid hammering out the clean guitar and bass guitar the past few weeks and Egan finished up his clean vocal duties a few days ago as well. Atmospherics such as subtle keys are also finished, leaving only a few bowed bass sections and Nathan's [Ellis] vocals remaining. Shortly after we'll send the material to Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden who will spend about eight days mixing and mastering the material.

"Everyone is pleased to hear the album finally coming closer to the final form. View a short video containing odds and ends from recent studio sessions below.

Daylight Dies Begin Tracking New Album

Raleigh-based DAYLIGHT DIES have started tracking their new album, titled Lost To The Living. The album, expected for release late spring 2008, is the band's second album with Candlelight Records.

Drummer Jesse Haff reports, "drums, acoustic guitars and a solid chunk of the rhythm guitars are now completed. We feel the album is not only our most refined material to date, but also displays our most varied assortment of dark, desperate and melancholic music."

In addition to recording the band have been confirmed as direct support on the upcoming CANDLEMASS American tour. With dates kicking off May 19th, the tour will allow fans new and old opportunity to hear some of the band's new music before it finds official release.

"Needless to say we are counting the days until the tour with Candlemass," says Haff. "We are looking forward to performing our guts out across the US."

Formed in 1996, Daylight Dies have grown into a highly respected band. Noted for their electric and acoustic guitar work that further includes dual-vocals all within a passionate and heavy sonic atmosphere, the band have developed their growing fanbase via high-profile stateside tours with LACUNA COIL, KATATONIA and MOONSPELL.

North Carolina's DAYLIGHT DIES has issued the following update:

"We're pleased to announce that all songs for our third album have been written. This includes eight songs that add up to roughly 50 minutes in length.

"This is certainly our most varied and dynamic effort, with simultaneously our meanest and our most fragile songs to date. We're especially proud of this album, as it's certainly our best.

"As stated previously, the material is a mix of beautiful melancholic leads and harsh dissonant rhythms; despair-driven hooks and the overall dark atmosphere you've come to expect. We're still refining lyrics, but two song titles will be 'The Morning Light' and 'Cathedral'. We'll divulge more titles, including the album title in the near future. We enter the studio in a bit under three weeks."
