Daylight Dies New Album Underway

DAYLIGHT DIES has checked in with an album update:

“Writing for the next Daylight Dies album has been underway since the end of our North American tour in November. We’ve got about two songs already and intend to continue focusing hard on writing in an attempt to be in the studio before the end of this year. It’s too early to tell where the album is headed, but the material thus far is as you’d expect - dark and dramatic.”

Daylight Dies Post Behind-The-Scenes Video Online

DAYLIGHT DIES drummer Jesse Haff has issued the following update:

"We spent a scorching hot and humid weekend filming the video for 'Lies that Bind' recently in abandoned building complex a few hours from here. The filming included playing inside a filthy and decaying room, entire walls on fire and lasted until 1 or 2 in the morning, where we played outdoors on a wrickety wooden platform above an old salt mine. The narrative segments of the video were filmed the following day. We've recently seen a very short rough clip of the video and are all blown away by what director Ramon Boutviseth is bringing to life. The amount of work that has gone into this is far beyond what anyone initially imagined and by all early accounts will yield something very special. A short 'behind-the-scenes' video is available for your viewing on YouTube and will be added to the site in near future. Please note it doesn't contain any footage from the actual video and only contains footage from the first day of filming." More...

The band will play a warm-up date in Philadelphia on July 11 and later this year will kick off their first full tour in support of "Dismantling Devotion"; teaming up with Sweden's KATATONIA and Portugal's MOONSPELL.
