New Years Day

New Years Day Cover Pantera, Linkin Park & More On New EP


New Years Day will have a new EP titled “Diary Of A Creep” out on January 26th through Red Music/Century Media. In addition to featuring the new song “Disgust Me“, the outing also features a cover of Garbage‘s “I’m Only Happy When It Rains” with a guest appearance by Halestorm frontwoman/guitarist Lzzy Hale. The EP also sports covers of Linkin Park‘s “Crawling“, Pantera‘s “Fucking Hostile“, No Doubt‘s “Don’t Speak” and New Order‘s “Bizarre Love Triangle“. The band’s frontwoman Ash Costello said of the release:

“I want to start by saying, it was incredibly difficult to narrow this down to the 5 songs I wanted to cover the most. Narrowing it down to 20 songs was hard! Let alone just 5. It felt very important to me to not only pay tribute to the artists that shaped who I am today, but to share it with all of you.

It’s easy to dismiss where an artist has come from if you have no clue who they worshipped when they were just kids in school, dreaming of being a real musician someday. Honestly, everyday, I cant believe how far I’ve come and how absolutely happy I am that I get to share my music with whoever wants to listen, and these are just a few of the songs that helped me and shaped me along the way.

When I was just a middle schooler, trying to get thru those horrible teenage years, I wish I had known then, that someday I would become one of the heroes I looked up to, and it would be all thanks to YOU. I am grateful to you for listening and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.”

Additionally, a new album from the band is tentatively expected out this fall. For now, they will be out on tour later this month on this North American tour with In This Moment, P.O.D. and Ded.
