screenname of someone at Victory Records. I didn't believe him, but I still started communicating with the guy.
We IM'ed back and forth for about six months, and it
happened that we were playing [...] in a town outside of
Chicago. [...] It was our rst time we ever played in Illinois, yet the 5060 kids there were singing along to our
tunes like theyd been fans all their lives.[1]

member and the ex-lead guitarist of A Day to Remember.
He has since parted ways with the band and now produces

History

Early years and A Day to Remember (19922009)


Main article: A Day to Remember
Tom Denney started playing guitar from the age of
10.[1] Denney was later in a band called 2 Days 2 Late
with drummer Bobby Scruggs;[nb 1] Denney called vocalist Jeremy McKinnon (who was in another band at the
time) asking if he wanted to form another band, later
called A Day to Remember.[3] Denney performed on the
bands rst three albums: And Their Name Was Treason (2005),[4] For Those Who Have Heart (2007),[5] and
Homesick (2009).[6] Denney has stated that Nirvana was a
major inuence on him, adding that if it wasn't for Nirvana, I honestly wouldn't be here.[7] Other inspirations
include country music artists such as George Jones and
Johnny Cash.[8]

randomly made up lyrics to it as I went. The song had


a very nu-metal singing part so Tom sang on it to be
funny. The song was a complete joke just for fun.[15]
Later that night after the session had nished, Calzini
took the track home with him, and put it on MySpace, titling it I'll Swing My Fists.[15] After changing the name
of his MySpace account, due to the growing number of
plays of the song, to Boston B; the pair soon recorded several tracks that Denney had left unused to which Calzini
added lyrics to.[15] Calzini gathered a group of people to
pose as a band, and to record music with, at Denneys
studio; naming the group as Paddock Park and releasing
the songs on With False Hope EP (2007).[15] All the songs
featured on the EP were later re-recorded in August 2008,
with Denney producing, with some new songs to make it
a full-length album.[15]
On July 26, 2011, it was announced that Denney would
be releasing a solo EP in the fall of that year on his
own record label, 33 Records.[16] A short preview of one
song, rap song I'm Gangsta, was released on the same
day.[16] The song was later released as a single on October
25;[17][18] the music video of which had its premiere via
Alternative Press' APTV, on November 1.[19] Band Mest
released a single on June 4, 2013, Radio (Something to
Believe)", which was co-written with Denney and features
McKinnon as a guest musician.[20] It was also produced
by Denney.[21]

On June 2, 2009, the band announced that Denney had 3.1.2 Discography
left the group; and was replaced by Four Letter Lie guitarist Kevin Ska.[9] The band stated that Denney left be- Solo

Background

A Day to Remember formed when guitarist Tom Denney asked Jeremy McKinnon if he would like to join the
band as a vocalist.[2] The pair hung out with drummer
Bobby Scruggs, who later joined the band.[2] During this
period, both Denney and Scruggs were already in a band;
Denney was in 2 Days 2 Late, while McKinnon played
in All for Nothing.[3] The trio wrote a song which McKinnon said was better than everything our other bands
had come up with.[2] Shortly afterwards the trio decided
to form a band which was called End of An Era in its
rst week of existence.[2] The name was inspired by a
movie listing in a TV guide found in Denneys home.[2]
One day at rehearsal, a friend of Scruggs showed up with
his girlfriend, who came up with the bands name A Day
to Remember.[2]
Scruggs friend stayed in the band for a short period. He
was red after several instances of walking o stage midperformance.[2] According to Denney, the groups original bassist and rhythm guitarist didn't work out.[3] They
were subsequently replaced by guitarist Neil Westfall and

According to McKinnon, And Their Name Was Treason was recorded probably within 3 days,[7] in Andrew
Wade's bedroom at his parents house[8] (credited in the
album booklet as The Wade Studio).[9] The members
later said they had no idea what were they doing when
they were recording the album.[10] The album features
samples from various lms throughout; Intro features
a sample from the lm Donnie Darko, 1958 features a
sample from the lm The Boondock Saints and Sound
the Alarm features audio from Shaun of the Dead.[11]
Speaking about the lyrical themes on the record, guitarist Tom Denney said that they were all experiences
that [singer] Jeremy has had, its all based on life.[3]
A few of the songs were written by the band when they
were teenagers, such as 1958, Heartless, and You
Should Have Killed Me When You Had the Chance,
the latter being one of the rst songs that the band ever
wrote.[12] 1958 was written about a temporary drummer, who threatened to go McKinnons parents house
with a baseball bat; the numbers 1958 being the last
four digits of his phone number.[13] Denney added that
the song talks about family and us sticking together no
matter what.[3]

Jeremy McKinnon, about Victory making the band do
things they didn't want to do, 2013
On December 6, 2010, two colored vinyl editions of Old
Record were released.[34] In an interview with USA Today in 2011, McKinnon said that the band had a bunch
of people tell us we'd sold out and that was our rst
album when they had released And Their Name Was
Treason.[35] On July 2, 2013, Victory announced that Old
Record was to be reissued again on vinyl, in 3 dierent colors, from July 9:[36][37] standard black, and limited edition copies of both pink and clear with black
smoke.[38][39] In an October 2013 interview, McKinnon
revealed the band had to re-record the whole album in a
couple of days due to pressure from Victory-owner Tony
Brummel.[30] McKinnon was absolutely [...] ashamed
it was released as he thought the band had butchered it.
Because it was two days [recording].[30]

Record label Indianola were introduced to the band by


their PureVolume account, which was shown to the label
by a mutual friend of the band.[10] On February 9, 2005,
the band got signed to Indianola,[14] which McKinnon
later said that the band thought was the biggest shit in the
world.[15] On the same day, And Their Name Was Treason was announced for release later that year.[14] Samples
of three tracks, 1958, Casablanca Sucked Anyways,
and If Looks Could Kill, were posted on the website of
The Wade Studio prior to release.[16] Since its release on
May 10, 2005,[nb 1][1] And Their Name Was Treason sold
over 10,000 copies[17] in the U.S. with little advertising
and no media exposure.[18] The albums success helped
the band sign to Victory for their following album.[19] The
group toured in the U.S. in the summer of 2005 to promote the record, along with other bands such as Caldwell
and Orion.[nb 2][20] The tour continued throughout Octo- 4.1.4 Reception

on the album was passable, he panned Bobby Scruggs
In 2008, both Old Record and the bands newest release

[24][25]
at that time, Homesick (2009), were announced.
The artwork for Old Record was released a month
prior,[26] and then the track list was posted online[27]
before the albums release on October 28, 2008,
through Victory.[nb 4][24][25] The re-release features different cover art, a rearranged track listing[29] and rerecorded instrumentation.[30] Old Record charted at number 16 on the Top Heatseekers Albums chart in the
U.S.[31] The re-release came about due to the albums
later unavailability in stores and as McKinnon commented, the band wanted people to be able to get
it.[32] Your Way with Words Is Through Silence was
streamed as part of Distrophonixs various artists compilation Screaming to Stop Sex Slavery in July 2009.[33]

Allschools writer Bjrn, mentioned that the band did


the album really well and mosh[ed] like crazy, despite adding that the growls suered, grieved [and were]
sometimes a little desperate.[42] Fake Train reviewer Ken
Hawk said the album was maybe one of the best fusions
of metallic hardcore and melodic punk-rock, continuing
with how the band were able to spring back-and-forth
between booming chugga mosh breakdowns, melodic
guitar thrashing, and driving upbeat rockawlessly
in an easy manner.[43] Scene It Alls Anson said the
band nally succeeded in rightfully earning that title of
bridg[ing] the gap between hardcore and emo. McKinnons voice was praised as using his voice extremely well
...what [Victory-owner, Tony Brummel] would do is say, [...] He manages to give the lowest screams and yet still
it comes to singing. A feat,
I'm going to give you guys this much money to do this, can hit the highest notes when

4.2 ''For Those Who Have Heart''


For Those Who Have Heart is the second studio album
by American rock band A Day to Remember, and their
rst for Victory. It was released on January 22, 2007 by
Victory. For the album, the band had a line-up change
swapping drummer Bobby Scruggs for Alex Shelnutt. It
charted at number 17 on the Heatseekers Album Chart
in the U.S. The music video for The Plot to Bomb the
Panhandle was released a month later. Several of the
albums songs appeared on the bands MySpace prole
before the release. Recorded and mixed at Zing Studios
by producer Eric Arena, the album was re-released in
February 2008, with additional tracks and a bonus DVD.
The DVD featured a performance of the band live at The
Capitol, in the bands hometown, Ocala, Florida. The
music video for The Danger in Starting a Fire was released in the same month, and the music video for "Since
U Been Gone", which had been streamed on the bands
MySpace previously, was released in July. For Those
Who Have Heart was generally well received by music
critics.

4.2.1 Background and recording


Leaving Indianola and arrival of Alex Shelnutt
After releasing their rst album, And Their Name Was
Treason (2005), A Day to Remember went on a tour of
the U.S. in summer 2005.[3][4] As rhythm guitarist Neil
Westfall said, Indianola didn't have money to support a
band growing [...] so we wanted to nd someone who
could support us and willing to do video, like recording

my mom, as he was 15 at the time.[6] Upon Shelnutt joining, Westfall said the group started sounding like a real Re-release of the album
professional band. He gave us something we never had
before.[9]
On February 4, 2008 a re-recording of You Should've
Signing with Victory Records and recording
The whole record was about pretty much standing up for
yourself and, a lot of people do really shitty things to you.
Thats what was happening to us, a lot, and that [...] you
shouldn't back down from people.[5]
Jeremy McKinnon, upon being asked what message the
album was trying to convey, 2007
Woodard was put in touch with a representative from
record label Victory Records.[10] Victory auditioned the
band in June, and following a week-long worth of phone
calls, the group were told of Victorys interest in signing
them up.[9]
The band was reported to have signed a deal with Victory in July.[11] An announcement of Victory signing
the band was released on August 11, 2006.[12] Demos
were recorded by Matt Finch at 318 Studios,[13] with preproduction at The Wade Studios in Ocala by Andrew
Wade.[13] Recording began in October at Zing Studios,
Westeld with producer Eric Arena.[12][13] Arena also
mixed the tracks.[13] Alan Douches mastered the record
at West West Side Music, New Windsor.[13]

Release

Initial releases

Killed Me When You Had the Chance was posted on the


bands Myspace.[27] The album was reissued on February 19.[nb 2][27] The reissue has dierent cover artwork, as
well as four bonus tracks the track listing of which was
revealed on February 1.[29] The bonus tracks are: a new
song recorded especially for the reiussue,[30] titled Why
Walk on Water When We've Got Boats, two re-recorded
songs that were originally featured on their debut album,
And Their Name Was Treason Heartless[31] and the
aforementioned You Should've Killed Me When You
Had the Chance[27] and a cover of the Kelly Clarkson song, "Since U Been Gone".[32] The new tracks were
recorded at The Wade Studio.[13][30] In addition to these
bonus tracks, is a bonus DVD with footage of A Day to
Remembers performance in Ocala, two music videos, as
well as behind the scenes footage of recording and commentary on the re-release.
The re-release came about after Victory asked the band
whether or not if they were going to a new album.[30]
Commenting about Victorys inquiry about a new album,
Woodard We weren't ready to do it [a new album], so
they asked if, you know, we were interested in doing a rerelease with new artwork and adding some new songs.[30]
About the re-recording of the old songs, Westfall said
We've made a lot of changes to these songs that we
play live [...] and now we're getting a chance to record
it, so the people that don't get to see us live can hear it
and appreciate it for what it is.[30] On the new tracks,
producer Andrew Wade said I think this new stu that
we're recording is really gonna blow a lot of kids away.
[...] [The re-recordings] just sound amazing, they all
sound like completely dierent songs, and the new song is
serious.[30] About the new song, Why Walk on Water
When We've Got Boats, the band wanted to do a fastpaced song.[30] McKinnon admitted the band kinda just
winged it. But we had some little ideas from being on
tour and messing around.[30]

Prior to the release of the album, a few tracks surfaced on the bands Myspace: The Plot to Bomb the
Panhandle,[14] Fast Forward to 2012,[15] The Danger in Starting a Fire, A Shot in the Dark and Show
'Em the Ropes. Cover art was unveiled on November
30, 2006.[16] A commercial to promote the album was
released on January 4, 2007.[17] Pre-orders were taken
starting January 16.[18] The album was released in the US Woodard said about inspiration for the tempo of the song:
on January 22,[nb 1][20] while the UK release occurred a We've all been listening to a lot of faster stu like Comeweek later, on January 29.[21]

to it especially for the release on the For Those Who Have
Heart reissue.[30] The band chose the song, as McKinnon stated, we thought would embody what we are as
a band by taking like, the poppiest thing ever and still
making it hard enough to where kids ght at our shows
over it.[30] The performance included on the DVD was
lmed at The Capitol, a budiling what was previously a

the videos director was Don Tyler.[39] The music video
appeared on YouTube on July 23.[40][41] The re-recorded
Heartless appeared on the bands MySpace prole in
October 2008.[31]

Further appearances

Punknews.org contributor GlassPipeMurder said Fast
Forward to 2012 was incredibly promising but within
mere seconds the melodic punk is replaced by vocals
that sound like a post-Taco Bell burrito belch.[55] About
the band playing The Price We Pay, he also said the
group had fallen equally at with their attempt at acoustic emo pop with horrically banal lyrics.[55] Rolling
Stone magazine said the album was among the 40 most
important new releases of the month.[35]

Reception

The original edition peaked at number 17 on the Billboard


Top Heatseekers chart,[51][52] while the reissue charted at
number 43 on the Top Independent Albums chart.[51][53]
Russ Hockenbury of AbsolutePunk said the album improved on every level from their previous album, And
Their Name Was Treason.[54] McKinnons vocals were
noted by Hockenbury as the greatest improvement.[54]
Allmusic reviewer Corey Apar spoke of Fast Forward to
2012 as being an appropriate opening track that summarized a display of the bands volatile persona; it launches
forth in melodic hardcore mode before quickly dropping
into death snarling and sludgy ring.[2] Apar also said
that the combination endures in varying levels throughout the rest of the album.[2] For PopMatters, Andrew
Blackie had written the album was a mix of death metal
grunts with the brash melodies of pop-punk.[21] Speaking of The Plot to Bomb the Panhandle, Blackie said
the song had a Green Day sensibility to it, with music
that tted together with class and precision helped by
that of Shelnutt.[21]

4.3.2 Music and lyrics

Homesick is the third studio album by American rock


band A Day to Remember, produced by Chad Gilbert
and the band, and released in February 2009. It was the
bands second album for Victory. The album features
material written while the band had been touring, which
Andrew Wade helped them demo. Recording took place
between October and November 2008 at The Wade Studio, located in Ocala. Featured on the album are guest
vocalists Mike Hranica (The Devil Wears Prada), Vincent Bennett (The Acacia Strain) and Sierra Kusterbeck
(VersaEmerge). Recorded during the album sessions but
remaining unreleased is an instrumental called Money

Tracks 16
In the early hours of one morning,[7] McKinnon was driving to Ocala, Florida when the chorus guitar ri to The
Downfall of Us All came to him, sometime in September 2008.[8] Upon arriving at his moms house, he got
an acoustic guitar and worked the song out,[8] nishing
it within 2 days.[nb 3][7] The songs lyrics are about pressure when it comes to songwriting and the attempt to
make people happy because of it.[8] It was the last song
written for the album.[7] My Life for Hire was one of
the rst songs written for the album, but remained un-

nished until shortly before recording sessions began.[9]


The lyrics refer to the music business and how the band
were told that they couldn't be the band we wanted to
be, as McKinnon commented.[9] The title I'm Made
of Wax, Larry, What Are You Made Of?" was a quote
that McKinnon thought was cool,[10] from the movie
Night at the Museum,[11] while the lyrics are about getting
revenge.[9] NJ Legion Iced Tea refers to how someone
would feel watching gigs.[9] The title for Mr. Highways
Thinking About the End also comes from a movie, The
Good Son,[11] while the lyrics are about people attempting
to undermine your achievements.[9] "Have Faith in Me"
is about trusting other people, and looking after them.[9]
This song took me the longest to write. It took almost a
year, but it was another song that kinda stumped me. I
really needed this song to say exactly what I wanted, and
I nally got it there. We didn't know if it would be on the
record right up until the end of recording. I wrote it separate from the band, and I wasn't comfortable changing
things. It all worked out in the end, though. I think its
the perfect end to this record.[9]
Jeremy McKinnon, on If It Means a Lot to You, 2009
Tracks 712
Welcome to the Family features a recording of Andrew
Wade's heart beat towards the end of the track.[12] The
title track, Homesick, was written as one piece, before
being split into two songs, which the band thought didn't
work well and changed it back to one song.[13] McKinnon
said he was proud of the track: My parents were really
happy when they rst heard it: My dad is always worried
about me and my mom really did ask me to write her
some soft songs. I nally did.[9] Holdin' It Down for
the Underground came about after McKinnon lost two
family members and writing the song helped him relieve
the pain.[9]
You Already Know What You Are is about negative
people and music critics, and doing whatever you want
no matter what others say.[14] The songs title was a saying
from a friend of the band.[13] The title for Another Song
About the Weekend is a reference to Secret Lives of the
Freemasons's album Weekend Warriors (2008),[15] while
the lyrics are about a sick cycle of life on the road [...]
Every time you're gone, you miss home and when you get
home, you miss the road.[9] If It Means a Lot to You
had been written over the course of a year, and McKinnon
said he wrote it about himself.[16] McKinnon described
the song as a great way to end the album,[16] describing
it as one of their biggest songs.[16]

& Nov.[17] McKinnon said that having Wade, who had


previously worked on the bands other albums, on production duties, was a way for the album to have A Day
To Remember-type feel.[nb 4][6] Wade also recorded the
bands demos for the album,[6][19] in the back of a bus.[20]
The album itself was recorded at Wades The Wade
Studio, in Ocala, Florida,[21] after the Easycore Tour
had nished.[22] Gilbert was touring with New Found
Glory in Europe at the time, but with video conferencing he was able to oer input about the record.[22] In
September 2008, a demo appeared on the bands MySpace page,[23] entitled Wax Larry.[24] Documenting the
recording process, the band released several webisodes
on YouTube, under the name The Real ADTR: Homesick in Ocala,[25][26][27] which had been called a spoof of
The Real World.[28] The webisodes were aided by director Drew Russ, as guitarist Neil Westfall states: When
he [Drew Russ] was telling us in the beginning that he
was getting into video stu, and we were like 'Well thats
kinda crazy 'cause we need a video guy to do these webisodes for us. And as we started talking he really
kinda got our sense of humor.[29] While in the middle
of recording Homesick, A Day to Remember released Old
Record.[nb 5][31]
When they rst played me the demo of Downfall, they
wanted it to be the rst song on the record. Overall, in my
opinion, rst songs are often the rst thing people hear, so
it should almost encompass the whole record. [...] I feel
if you never heard the band before, and you hear Downfall, its a perfect introduction.[8]
Chad Gilbert, on the making of The Downfall of Us
All, 2009
Homesick was produced by Gilbert,[21] and was mixed by
Adam Dutkiewicz of Killswitch Engage,[32] with mixing
taking place in December 2008,[33] at Zing Studios.[21]
Mastering took place at West West Side Studios, by Alan
Douches.[21] The album features three guesting vocalists:[34] Mike Hranica of The Devil Wears Prada on I'm
Made of Wax, Larry, What Are You Made Of?", Vincent Bennett of The Acacia Strain on Welcome to the
Family, and Sierra Kusterbeck of VersaEmerge on If It
Means a Lot to You.[21] The latter featured harmonica
played by Dave Guynn.[21] One of the tracks written for
Homesick was held over for What Separates Me from You
(2010).[35] An instrumental entitled Money Maker was
also recorded during the sessions, but McKinnon had difculties with it. He later explained: when it came down
to writing vocal parts [...] I just couldn't get that song
done. [...] I think it was the best music for the whole
record. The music was just so catchy on its own [...] so
we said we will just set this aside for next time around.[13]

In an August 2008 interview with AbsolutePunk, McKinnon said the band were planning to start recording once 4.3.4

Release and promotion

4.3. ''HOMESICK''
Initial releases and line-up changes
In 2008, both Homesick and the re-release of the bands
rst album, as Old Record, were announced,[36] with a further announcement claiming Homesick's release as February 17, 2009.[37] After being moved up the schedule,[38]
the albums release date became February 3 for the
U.S.[nb 6][41] In January 6, 2009,[42] the track list of the
album was revealed.[43] In mid-January, the song Welcome to the Family was put on the bands Myspace
prole,[nb 7][44][45] with The Downfall of Us All being
added on 26 January.[46] The following day, the song NJ
Legion Iced Tea was released as the rst single.[47][48]
Homesick was released on February 3 in the U.S.[nb 8][50]
The cover art, designed by Dan Mumford based on an
idea by McKinnon,[28] is an interpretation of dierent
paths in life, and how one road can change a persons
life.[51] The second single was The Downfall of Us All
and the music video was released on March 3.[52] For
tours in promotion of Homesick, the band had a line-up
change[10] adding Four Letter Lie guitarist Kevin Ska
and dropping Tom Denney, the latter of whom wanted to
settle down,[53] but was still working with the band behind
the scenes.[54][55][56]

on MTV on March 16.[68][69] The music video was based
on an idea from a friend Kyle Crawford, as McKinnon
said: He was like, 'Hey, you should totally make a video
where you guys are playing kickball and you play a bunch
of kids and just kick the s*** out of them?" I was like,
That is a great idea. Lets look into it.'"[nb 11][10] Asked
why it was the bands next music video, Westfall said it
stands out compared to the other songs as its a harder
song.[55]
The band had performed acoustic versions of both
Homesick and Have Faith in Me before a show in
early April, for 98 Rock,[70] and again, for KROQ, a few
months later.[71][72] The band also played Have Faith in
Me acoustically for MTV, which was posted online midApril.[73][74] At the beginning of May 2010, the band
asked fans to name their next tour,[75] which was shortly
afterwards named as Toursick.[76] The band started the
rst of The AP Sessions for Alternative Press on June 30,
performing Homesick and Have Faith in Me.[77] The
music video for Have Faith in Me, directed by Mark
Staubach,[78] was released on July 14, receiving its world
premiere on MTV.[79][80] The song was also released as a
single.[81]

We came up with some pretty cool stu. Theres like a


hidden code in there, a key to gure out what the sign says
4.3.5
and we just tried to have fun with it.[28]
Jeremy McKinnon, on the album art, 2009
The band called The Downfall of Us All the most
fun track from Homesick to play live.[32] A live video
of the band performing Mr. Highways Thinking About
the End was included in an episode of Victorys VicTorV.[nb 9][58] A video of the band performing I'm Made
of Wax, Larry, What Are You Made Of?", which was
lmed on the Warped Tour, was added to the bands
MySpace prole on October 16, 2009.[55][59] It was included as a DVD trailer on their prole, which people mistook as the songs actual music video.[55] Have
Faith in Me was then announced as a single on September 25, 2009.[nb 10][61] In December, the band released a
Christmas song, Right Where You Want Me to Be, on
their MySpace account.[62][63]

Music videos and live performances


Also in December, the music video for I'm Made of
Wax, Larry, What Are You Made Of?" was lmed,[60]
directed by Dan Dobi.[64] In early March 2010 the band
announced via their Twitter account that the video was
set for release, with a date of March 16.[65] This was further conrmed a few days later,[66] with some fans being
able to view it before its release.[67] A delay in releasing it
occurred as the band were trying to negotiate with MTV,
as Westfall commented: I think its more important to
have them [MTV] on board, instead of just putting it on,
like, YouTube.[60] The video had its television premiere

Further releases and song appearances

A re-issue of Homesick was announced on September


13, 2009,[82] and released on October 27,[83][84] with
the original track listing intact, but adding acoustic versions of Homesick and Another Song About the
Weekend,[nb 12] and 9 live tracks from a performance in
Switzerland,[nb 13][87] which was lmed during their European tour.[88] The acoustic tracks were recorded at The
Wade Studio from September 10[88] to September 21.[89]
Westfall said the band wasn't going to re-issue the album unless its worth the fans while.[55] The album,
along with For Those Who Have Heart and Attack of
the Killer B-Sides (2010), had a reissue on vinyl,[90] in
2011.[91][92] Three songs have featured on various artist
compilations: the acoustic version of Homesick was
released on the Victory Records Fall Sampler 2010,[93]
I'm Made of Wax, Larry, What are You Made Of?"
on SideOneDummy's Warped Tour 2009 Tour Compilation,[94] and The Downfall of Us All on Modern Rock
Radios Promo Only: Modern Rock Radio (July 2009)[95]
and 3Wises Soundwave 2012.[96] NJ Legion Iced Tea
is available as downloadable content for Guitar Hero
World Tour.[97] The songs The Downfall of Us All,
Have Faith in Me, I'm Made of Wax, Larry, What
Are You Made Of?" and If It Means a Lot to You are
available as downloadable content for Rock Band.[98] I'm
Made of Wax, Larry, What Are You Made Of?" had been
added at the request of the bands fans.[10] Another vinyl
reissue was announced on July 30, 2013,[99] and released
on August 6.[nb 14][102]

CHAPTER 4. STUDIO ALBUMS

Reception

the genre.[2] Monger called the backing vocals exciting at rst, but felt that they eventually dissolve into
the waves of distortion mid-album, becoming an audio
equivalent of an energy drink crash.[2] The nal track,
If It Means a Lot to You, as Monger noted, was different from the preceding tracks, as they were deafening, ultimately forgettable, over-compressed slabs of
twentysomething angst.[2] Sputnikmusic's John Hanson
said the album was an incredibly derivative and plodding record that was lled with laughable moments.[1]
He also noted the band haven't seemed to progress that
basic combination of ideas in combining pop-punk and
metalcore, and that the intro to The Downfall of Us All
is just one example of embarrassing decisions.[1]

The album charted at number 21 on the Billboard 200,


number 1 on Top Independent Albums,[103] number
2 on Hard Rock Albums,[104] number 21 on Digital
Albums,[105] and number 5 on the Alternative Albums
charts.[106] It sold 22,000 copies within its rst week
and reached 80,000 copies by June 2010.[107] The album
charted at number 165 in the UK.[108] Have Faith in
Me charted at number 40 on the Billboard Modern Rock
Tracks chart.[109] Homesick was voted by fans as number 1 on Kill Your Stereos Album of the Year 2009.[110]
Rock Sound, in 2012, ranked the album at number 82
on their list of the greatest 101 albums of the past 15
years.[111] In February 2014, The Downfall of Us All
was certied gold, and in September, If It Means a Lot 4.3.7 Track listing
to You was certied.[112] In July 2015, the album was
certied silver in the UK,[113] after selling 60,000 copies All songs written by A Day to Remember and all lyrics
in the UK.[114] In March 2016, Homesick was certied written by Jeremy McKinnon, except where noted.[21]
gold in the U.S.[115]
Thomas Nassi of AbsolutePunk called Homesick a
record that is honest and entertaining, despite how
repetitive and dense it may be.[116] Nassi went on
to say that the album wouldn't appeal to the public, but
it would be welcomed with open arms by the bands
fans.[116] When referring to the albums lyrics, Nassi
called the album a concept one, with a theme of the
glory of being a musician, which encompasses having
to be away from home for a period of time.[116] The
Downfall of Us All, as Nassi put it, gets the listener psyched for the rest of the album.[116] Rock on Request reviewer Anthony Avina furthered this comment by
naming the songs Welcome to the Family and the title
track as examples of the band showing o their wide
range of talent while producing a harmonious album
that the bands fans will instantly fall in love with.[117]
Avina noted the album had a unique sound that has elements from other bands such as Chiodos.[117] Petteri
Pertola, for Rockfreaks.net, appreciate[s] the way these
guys fuse metalcore and pop punk seamlessly together,
adding that many songs are plagued by an overtly formulaic approach, but when it works, [...] Homesick is one
of the catchiest listens you'll experience this year.[118]
Punknews.org reviewer Elliot said the album had an undeniable quality, that is melodic competence.[119] He
viewed the a capella intro to The Downfall of Us All
as being a little gimmicky, while Have Faith in Me
was called a tribute to Blink-182.[119] Despite noting that
three of the songs stray from a format that the other
songs on the album share, he referred to them as being
not very impressive.[119]
Allmusic reviewer James Christopher Monger said The
Downfall of Us All would gain an extra life in countless montages on MTV reality shows and 30-second cola
commercials.[2] Monger said that the album consisted
of perfectly executed and fairly standard clean vocal
post-hardcore emo-pop which shows the limitations of

4.4.1 Background
While the band was touring Homesick (2009), a line-up
change occurred[2] when guitarist Tom Denney wanted
to settle down.[3] Four Letter Lie guitarist Kevin Ska
was added in his place;[3] Denney, however, was retained
to work with the band behind the scenes.[4] All of the
songs for What Separates Me from You were written while
the band were touring in 2009 and 2010,[5] and as early
as March 2010, vocalist Jeremy McKinnon stated that A
Day to Remember already had all of the pop/punk song
ideas written [...] And we're then going to write ve heavier songs.[6]

Guitarist Neil Westfall said in a 2010 interview with Alter


the Press!: We've written a few jams, we're always constantly writing, like I think we wrote some parts the other
day.[7] Westfall also said once the band return home

4.4. ''WHAT SEPARATES ME FROM YOU''


from touring, they were going to drop everything and
start writing and doing pre-production full time.[7] At
this point, the band had ten songs and were trying to condense them into ve, then planning to write ve more.[6]
Westfall said the band completed the nal few songs
when we were back home with Tom (Denney) and Chad
(Gilbert).[8] On the pace of writing, McKinnon said:
It seems like a really fast thing that has happened but
we've been constantly working on it the entire time.[5]
On the songs themselves, he said: the pop-punk stu has
a darker edge to it. I wrote it like that, its still pop-punk
but with a darker edge.[6] The album was inuenced by
Finch's What It Is to Burn (2002).[9] The album came
together song by song as McKinnon mentioned,[10] with
the band coming up with 1516 song ideas.[11] McKinnon stated in an interview with Rocksound that theres
songs that didn't make this record that we're saving.[5]
There is a track on the album that was previously written
for Homesick.[5]
When asked about how he comes up with song titles,
McKinnon said: I've got my iPhone, and I go on my
notes and every time I see something I like I write it down,
so a lot of the time titles are something that mean something to us only, or to someone I know only.[5] He called
What Separates Me from You the slowest for stu like
that, when referring to song titles.[5] Westfall said that
the albums title and the songs subjects were about Separating your self from your peers and really coming into
your own.[8] McKinnon said What Separates Me from
You was a lot more personal and darker than Homesick,[5] and that it was a natural progression of what we
were doing with the same core as the bands preceding albums.[12] Asked whether the album reached new
heights, he said it was denitely the next step for the
band.[12] However, the band originally had no idea on how
the album would turn out: It was a little bit all over the
place, because of me coming in, Tom [Denney] leaving
and all this new stu that was going on, as stated by guitarist Kevin Ska.[13] Ska said that McKinnon originally
had a dierent name for the album that he really wanted,
but found it was actually the name of a Terror (hardcore
band) album.[7]

Tracks 15
It was important to the band that Sticks & Bricks
opened the album, as it was an in-your-face song.[14]
McKinnon said in an interview with USAToday that the
opening lyric ("I am fueled by all forms of failure")
was 100% directed at everyone who ever doubted our
band.[4] He stated that it is one of the meaner, heavier
songs that we've ever done as a band.[10] "All I Want" is
about being in a band,[4] according to McKinnon, and
was one of the nal songs written for the album.[14] The
song came about from an idea by McKinnon that he expanded on guitar in the middle of recording for the album,
and wrote most of it in one night.[14] A rough version was

31
recorded between McKinnon and producer Chad Gilbert
before the band had arrived at the studio.[14] McKinnon
said the song was more of a singing version of the bands
song I'm Made of Wax, Larry, What Are You Made
Of?".[14]
"Its Complicated" was written while the band were
abroad in Amsterdam; the original version diered signicantly from the nal version.[14] Andrew Wade ew
out to the band in an attempt to work on the song
immediately.[14] This Is the House That Doubt Built
was among one of the rst to be written for the album, written almost in one sitting while McKinnon had
his acoustic guitar with him,[15] while the band was
abroad.[14] 2nd Sucks was about people who viewed being in a band as being a sort of competition.[14]

Tracks 610
Better O This Way was one of the rst written for
the album, and re-written at least 3 dierent times.[14]
The song was the nal one nished for the album.[14] The
title for "All Signs Point to Lauderdale" came from an
occasion when McKinnon and bassist Joshua Woodard
were in a rough neighborhood in West Palm Beach,
Florida.[14] A piece of the song came from a recording
session for Homesick when Gilbert said he had an idea
for the melody, which McKinnon took a while to write
over: Chad had a cool idea, vocally, for something.[14]
In an interview with PopCrush in 2011, McKinnon said
the song was when you get the feeling like you're stuck
in a place thats leading you nowhere and standing up
for yourself and taking charge of your life.[16] You Be
Tails, I'll Be Sonic was written with the bands former
guitarist, Tom Denney;[14] the song was made up of several separate pieces from dierent song ideas, with a chorus McKinnon had re-written 4 times.[14]
Referring to You Be Tails, I'll Be Sonic, Ska said that
the songs titlea reference to Tails and Sonic from the
video game serieshad really came out of nowhere.[13]
McKinnon said the song is a more personal song [...]
It discusses how the choices I've made to put my best
foot forward in my career, in a sense, have really done
damage to my personal life.[10] Both You Be Tails, I'll
Be Sonic and Out of Time talk about how I feel
like I'm doing what I want with my life, but I think,
Wow, I just did something that really aected me.""[10]
Out of Time was also one of the rst songs written
for the album, and was written while the band was in
Australia.[14] McKinnon said the song was the most personal on the record.[14] Ska had a major hand in writing
If I Leave.[14] The song describes dierent things you
got through being on the road and a relationship ending when you're not really around enough to actually take
care of it in person.[17] On being asked whether he knew
it would be the nal song on the album, McKinnon said
It just felt right [...] seemed like a good ending.[17]

CHAPTER 4. STUDIO ALBUMS

Recording

We'll bring like a speaker, a guitar amp simulator, microphones, he'll [Andrew Wade] just write the drums on
the computer, and we'll just demo the songs out like that.
When we get back, we'll track everything fully, and Alex
(Shelnutt - drummer) will use his magic and do whatever
he does behind the drums.[7]
Neil Westfall, on pre-production, 2010
Before showing the songs to the band, McKinnon and
Ska worked on them alone.[10] When the pair had
all of the song ideas, they worked on them as a fullband,[10] with pre-production being undertaken in, as
Ska commented, a makeshift studio[7] by Andrew
Wade.[18] Woodard commented that the band had been
going in from 11am until 9pm and all we do is sit
around and play.[18] Between demoing the songs, and
their nal forms on the album, Woodard said crazy
things were happening verses became choruses, with
Chad Gilbert assisting the band with arrangements and
writing.[18] As the band thought they were getting better
as songwriters, Woodard stated, its getting more heavy
and more pop.[18] One song that the band recorded was
screwed up really bad and it didn't make the record, as
Ska comments, as the group recorded it at a fast pace
and when McKinnon tried to sing it was like rap music. [imitates rap singing] And we were like 'thats not
good'.[19] Asked if the band would use it as a possible
B-side, Ska said its possible [...] might use it for the
next record or something like that.[19]
What Separates Me from You was recorded from May to
July 23, 2010,[20] in three locations, per the album booklet: The Wade Studios in Ocala, Florida, The Back of
a Bus with No AC in Germany and A Closet in New
Jersey,[21] the latter of which being where the backing vocals for All Signs Point to Lauderdale were recorded.[22]
The album was mixed by David Bendeth and Dan Korne, and produced by Gilbert with assistance by Wade
and McKinnon.[21] Wade also produced the bands previous album, Homesick.[23] It was the rst album featuring
Ska on guitar, following Tom Denneys departue after
Homesick.[24] All I Want, Its Complicated, This Is
the House That Doubt Built and If I Leave were mixed
by Bendeth, while the rest of the album tracks were mixed
by Korne.[21] Mastering for the album had taken place
at Sterling Sound by Ted Jensen.[21]

4.4.4

Release

McKinnon later said in an interview that the albums


cover was meant to be a little more serious. It has
the vibe of a painting.[28] Featured on the album cover
is the bands ex-guitarist Denney, video director Drew
Russ, and producer Gilbert.[29] A supposed track listing
for the album was posted on the internet with mentions
of guest appearances by Ed McRae[nb 1] and Florence
Welch, from Your Demise and Florence and the Machine
respectively.[nb 2][32][33] McKinnon said it wasn't the true
track list, then proceeded to post the actual track list on
October 13.[34] On October 1, the band held a contest, to
tie in with the release of the album, where fans could win
their catalog on vinyl and a signed copy of the album.[35]
The group released a short preview of new song 2nd
Sucks on October 6.[36] On October 7, the albums rst
single, All I Want, was debuted on KROQ Radio.[37]
The single was ocially released on October 12.[38] As
the choice of a single, Westfall said All I Want was a
great transition song from Homesick".[8] On October 21,
a full version of 2nd Sucks was posted for streaming on
Victorys Facebook page.[39]
[What was the inspiration for the title?] The albums
about what choices you make and the things that come
with them, whether it be losing out on a relationship or
losing a family member. Its just about lifestyle choices
and all the good and bad things that come with it.[40]
Kevin Ska, speaking in 2010
Originally set for release on October 26, 2010,[41] the
album was delayed until November 15 in the UK and
the proceeding day in the U.S.[nb 3][26][43] The album was
leaked a few days prior to release.[44] A listening party for
the album was held at The Hard Rock Hotel in Chicago
on November 15 for a small number of fans, which was
followed by a Q&A session with the band.[45] On January
6, 2011, the band released the music video for the single
All I Want.[46] The video, which was lmed back in
October 2010,[8] features members from numerous musical groups.[46] On January 11, 2011, the band made
their national television debut[47] while performing the
songs All I Want and Better O This Way on Jimmy
Kimmel Live!.[48] Ska recalled the TV performance as
fun, calling Jimmy Kimmel a good guy, and a great
experience to be on Kimmels show.[13] Beginning in
March,[49] to help promote What Separates Me from You,
the band went on The Game Changers Tour.[nb 4][52] The
band performed over half of the new album while on The
Game Changers tour.[13] McKinnon commented: The
new songs live have worked great.[12]

On April 16, 2011, A Day to Remember released a special for Record Store Day, which was an exclusive limited

edition 7 vinyl of All I Want.[53][54] The band lmed
the music video for All Signs Point to Lauderdale in

Reception

What Separates Me from You received generally favorable


reviews. James Christopher Monger of Allmusic said,
"[It] is whiney, petulant, immature, hopeless, and thoroughly addicting, as the ten songs contained within the
gatefold packaging [...] are as immaculately crafted and
engaging as they are blindingly self-absorbed.[1] Brendan Manley from Alternative Press wrote, The vitriolic
delivery seems sincere, but even if you dont buy into
all of the personal/emotional factors underpinning Separates (smack-talking the smack-talkers/a recent, devastating breakup/assorted perils of touring), the album simply kills.[70] However, Christine Caruana of Loud Online
said, "[It] is very much typical of its genre. Lyrics lled
with standard teenage angst, fast, distorted guitars and
heavy, yet boring, drum lls to imitate a metal sound.[71]
While Dan Rankin of Blare Magazine said the album was
essentially just another fat kid on the already rusty trampoline that is this genre.[72] Brooke Daly of Tastemakers
said that the album was one of the bands more solid releases with less repetition than on Homesick.[73] Despite
taking on a poppier sound being risky in his opinion, the
band managed to pull it o.[73] Jacob Testa, for Mind
Equals Blown, noted that he found himself wanting to
listen to it again and again, saying that the album featured a lot of creativity and maturation.[74]
The album peaked at number 11 on the U.S. Billboard
200,[75] becoming A Day to Remembers personal best,
as Homesick peaked at number 21.[76] The album also

Common Courtesy is the fth studio album by American rock band A Day to Remember. Songs for the
album were written mid-2011, with recording starting
from early-2012 and going into March 2013, with mixing being handled in the same month. In between that
time period, an unmixed version of Violence (Enough
Is Enough)" was streamed from the bands website in December 2012. The band then embarked on the Right
Back at It Again Tour in March 2013, performing the new
song "Right Back at It Again" at each show. From midAugust to late-September, the band released webisodes
to tie-in with the album. The band performed another

Background

Shortly after the end of Warped Tour in July 2011, the


band decided to take a break to compose new material.[4]
In an interview with Alternative Press in November, vocalist Jeremy McKinnon said that after the bands done
touring Europe the group will be recording their next
album.[5] McKinnon also said that he has been writing
constantly for the course of the two years while the band
has been touring, and he is really happy with the material accumulated up to this point.[5]
On December 15, it was announced that A Day to Remember had plans of pressing charges against their label, Victory, due to breach of contract. Legal action was
reportedly initiated on May 31 of that year, in which
the band claims Victory owes them over $75,000 in
royalties.[6] Victory has said, on their behalf, that the lawsuit is actually about the bands refusal to fulll their 5
album contractual commitment to Victory and their newfound desire to move to a major label.[7] A Day to Remember gave Altpress.com a statement: A Day To Remember would like to make it clear that they did not announce nor seek any attention regarding their ongoing suit
with Victory Records. This information has been public record since May of 2011 and they have no intention
of speaking publicly or disparagingly regarding their disagreement with Victory. A Day To Remember will continue to release music for their fans.[8]
Asked about a release date for the album in an interview
with WGRD in April 2013, McKinnon said that theres a
date we've beenthat I've heardtossed around in the last
week, but I mean we haven't really set anything in stone.
But its gonna be as soon as we possibly can. We're doing
our best, we're just tryingyou knowwe took our time
to really make this record as good as it could be, in our
eyes [...] If everybody could be patient with us, I think
they will be very very happy with what we put out.[9]
Asked if the album was going to be released on Victory,

stop us from doing that. We announced that we were going to put out the album, and immediately, someone tried
to take that from us. [...] If we don't put it out, it could
end our career.[19]
Jeremy McKinnon, upon being asked whether the
album would be self-released, 2013
The album was nished As of last week, we got the nal master. I was telling people forever that the record
wasn't nished, wasn't mastered and wasn't mixed. Its
nally done.[19] McKinnon also said the album would
be pressed pretty soon and that the band was doing it
ourselves"; further adding that We don't care if we have
to put out an album the day of October 8 and its only
available digitally.[19] It was revealed by McKinnon that
the version of Violence (Enough Is Enough)" that was
posted back in December wasn't mixed and that the lawsuit was still ongoing.[20] On October 4, it was announced
the band had won against Victory in the court case,[21] the
group, however, is still contractually obligated to owe the
label at least two more albums.[22]

4.5.2 Recording
Its really not meant to be political as it might soundthats
just never been our band. But its that feeling that things
are out of your hands. I wanted it to have this dark, ominous feeling.[23]
Jeremy McKinnon, on the song Violence (Enough Is
Enough)", 2012
In January 2012, guitarist Kevin Ska said the band
would be recording after they had nished touring in early
May and that it would hopefully [...] be done by July
or August with the album out during the same year.[24]
On April 4, McKinnon hinted via Twitter that the band
might be recording.[25] On May 10, the band said live on
stage that the bands new album would be titled Com-

mon Courtesy.[26][27] Shortly after this, the band started
recording for the new album,[28] on the 14th.[29] On August 25, Ska had conrmed the albums title.[30][31] In
September, the band said that they were working with
Chad Gilbert.[nb 2][34] While in the middle of recording
Common Courtesy, the band played a home town gig on
November 21.[35][36]

CHAPTER 4. STUDIO ALBUMS


and running.[57] Mastering was handled by Ted Jensen
at Sterling Sound, and mixing by Ken Andrews.[53]
The bands original guitarist, Tom Denney, was present
for had played a part in the recording: He was just like
another member of our band like he used to be. This is
gonna be a really special album because of it.[27] In the
February 2013 issue of Alternative Press magazine, McKinnon said the band had a total of 40 songs to work with:
There was just this wave of songwriting that happened in
the last year... We have so much stu that its just a completely dierent experience. [...] We've never had this
much of it, and its never been this good right from the
start.[58] A month later, on 19 March, McKinnon said
recording for the album had been nished, and now the
album was onto the mixing stage.[59][60] On the same day,
the bands video editor, Drew Russ, post a tweet saying
he had Wrapped up everything for the @WhereisADTR
Common Courtesy episodes.[61] The next day, McKinnon again had an interview with radio.com, McKinnon
said the band "always put one of the best heavy songs out
rst, then following-up with with a more well-rounded
song that appeals to everybody.[62]

A video counting down from the number 21 was posted


online in early December;[37][38] in the video McKinnon stated that this is some of the best material that
we've written. I know people say that every album but
I know it is.[39] Some thought this was a countdown to
the album,[40][41][42] instead, on December 21, the band
released the track Violence (Enough Is Enough)" on
their website,[43][44][45] which was conrmed to appear on
Common Courtesy.[46][47] McKinnon said that the music
video was supposed to be lmed and released for Violence (Enough Is Enough)" on the same day but it just
didn't turn out that way. [...] We're trying to get things
done as fast as possible, but it just hasn't been working out.[23] Despite a statement on October 17, 2012
by producer Gilbert stating that the album might be nished within a week,[48] by the time Violence (Enough
Is Enough)" was released, the album was only partly
4.5.3
recorded.[27]
In an interview with Jennifer J. Walker of Kerrang! magazine, McKinnon stated that there would be ve heavy
songs appearing on the album.[49] McKinnon said the album would be a reection on our history, on how smalltown kids playing music that doesn't really make sense
to the world ended up on the main stages of some of
the biggest music festivals around the world.[49] McKinnon conrmed that the opening track would be City of
Ocala.[49] McKinnon said via a tweet, posted on February 18, 2013 that the band were still working on the
album.[50][51] In a February interview with radio.com,
McKinnon said the delay in releasing material wasn't due
to the bands lawsuit against their record label, Victory,
but down to the amount of songs for the album, and that
the band were still working that out.[27] The band had
recorded an amount of material equal to that of literally three or four albums worth,[52] McKinnon said If
you're putting out 15-plus tracks on a record, that could
be dangerous. Its hard for even your biggest fans to stay
with you that long.[27]
McKinnon mentioned that the band had nanced the
recording themselves and been recording at McKinnons home studio, built specically for the making of
this album.[nb 3][23][27] The recording studio cost $40,000
(25,000) McKinnon and producer Andrew Wade to
build; the rest of the band members paying $20,000
of the total.[nb 4][56] Dan Korne helped build various
equipment for the studio, such as several audio compressors.[nb 5][57] Wade and Korne had a trial and error system on based on what Wade liked and disliked in a studio,
which as McKinnon commented, "[we] built the whole
studio around that [...] It took us a few months to get up

Music and lyrics

It'll be the most songs we come out of the gate with,


ever. [...] We wanted to be able to put everything people
wanted from us on the record and make it be something
that they're gonna really care about. [...] If Its a heavy
song, make sure its a heavy song that people are really
gonna be happy with, and theres a huge chunk of our
record thats just aimed at those people who are fans of
our band. Then we've got pop punk songs, we've got more
alternative rock songs, we've got even slower songs than
we've ever done, we've got an acoustic song. Its everything thats ever been A Day to Remember times ten.[9]
Jeremy McKinnon, on the musical styles within the
album, 2013

Style and inuences


In an interview with magazine NME at the same time,
McKinnon said that despite having lots of material
We've not been able to get down to putting it all together
yet, then reassuring that when that happens we'll really
be ready to go.[63] When asked what his inspiration has
been, McKinnon replied that its new stu I'm listening
to all the time, I listen to a bit of everything, then going on to name a few artists that he admires: Mumford &
Sons, Living with Lions and Coldplay, among others.[63]
McKinnon was then asked whether or not those bands
sound might inuence the album, McKinnon answered
with Maybe, I guess I'll nd out when we go through all
the new ones, but then going on to say Everything inuences me, but it'll be an A Day To Remember record.[63]

4.5. ''COMMON COURTESY''

39

McKinnon went on to say that Common Courtesy is going


to have more heavier songs than on the past two records
together. But with A Day To Remember, its not that simple because A Day To Remember isn't one band.[23] Featured on multiple songs is in-studio banter, which Gregory Heaney calls a window into a creative process that
sounds fun and relaxed.[64]

album,[71] it is about the bands lawsuit with Victory.[66]


An early edit of the song surfaced online on October 8, it
features an intro consisting of a voicemail left by Victoryowner Tony Brummel saying he would sue the band.[72] I
Remember is a collection of memories [...] about our
whole time on the road and some of the crazy things that
happened to us over the years.[73]

Tracks

4.5.4 Release

McKinnon, along with Denney and Wade, wrote the


biggest songs on the album in a period of ve days.[65]
City of Ocala is about standing in the back garden of
my parents house and looking in the garage where we
started, where we'd practice, and where we'd terrorise the
neighbourhood.[49] It is also about the bands hometown,
Ocala, Florida, as McKinnon commented: we've tended
to be a little bit negative about Ocala, but as time goes on
we've learned to appreciate it more.[66] Right Back at
It Again almost wasn't included on the album as it was
one of the excess songs the band had recorded, we realised that it sounded great, so on it went.[66] Sometimes You're the Hammer, Sometimes You're the Nail
was the last song written for the album, the band wasn't
pleased with the second verse and thus was re-written four
times until the band thought it was satisfactory.[66] Dead
& Buried was a song that just came together with minimal adjustments needed to it.[66] Best of Me had, according to McKinnon, a Foo Fighters feel to it.[66] I'm
Already Gone was written while the band was touring
with Bring Me the Horizon in the UK[66] while McKinnon was on the tour bus, a long time ago.[nb 6][65] It was
demoed acoustically a couple of years prior to the album;
Ska said it was more or less nished by that point bar
an electric guitar idea, which had came from Wade, that
was added.[70]
Violence (Enough Is Enough)" was the rst song written for inclusion on the album.[66] Discussing Violence
(Enough Is Enough)" in an interview, McKinnon said that
the song was about dierent perspectives from the world
and why people do terrible things to each other.[23][nb 7]
Life @ 11 had came about during the pre-production
stage of the album: a lot of preproduction for this album,
and this song kind of fell out of thin air.[66] I Surrender
was written three or four years ago, however, McKinnon didn't like the original version he wrote, but I always
really loved it so he later got it nished in the way that
I wanted it to be.[66] Life Lessons Learned the Hard
Way was the last song written for the album: We were
like, 'Man we need something heavy!' This song actually came from a voice memo that I'd recorded.[66] "End
of Me" came about from McKinnon and Wade messing around in the studio with an acoustic guitar: the
song just came from something that he [Wade] played on
that I thought was so awesome that the vocal line came
more or less immediately came to me.[66] The Document Speaks for Itself was the rst song recorded for the

series.

Promotion and release


On August 16, 2013, the bands ocial Facebook page
announced Common Courtesy 'The Series,[74] a web series
that were released on YouTube.[nb 8][77] The rst episode,
titled Black Crow, was released on August 23.[78] The
next day, Common Courtesy was announced for release on
October 8.[79] The second episode, Golden Eagle, was
released on August 30;[80] featured in the episode is a rap
song of the same name, which had a music video released
for it on September 4.[81] The third episode, titled Guitar Vibes and released on September 6,[82] was a joke
on how the band was taking their time on recording the
album.[83] On September 11, the band began the House
Party Tour,[nb 9][87] where new song Dead & Buried was
played on the rst night.[88] The fourth episode, Spiritual Uplifting, was released September 15;[89] the nal
episode, The Finale, was released on September 23, as
was the cover art for the album, and digital pre-orders
were being taken.[90]
Victory uploaded a video to YouTube called The End

part of BBC Radio 1's Rock Show the following midnight,


with the band calling the song their brand new single.[92]
Common Courtesy was self-released by the band on October 8[93][94] digitally.[95] On October 17, the band announced the physical and iTunes releases would occur on
November 25,[96] with three additional tracks: Leave
All the Lights On, Good Things, and Same Book But
Never the Same Page.[97] Right Back at It Again impacted radio on November 11.[98] McKinnon, guitarist
Neil Westfall and Ska performed a surprise acoustic
show for Warped Tour 2013 UK on November 17,[99]
and another acoustic set, this time at Banquet Records the
following day, both in London.[100] Ska said, in an interview on November 24, that the band were practicing for
a little acoustic, week long radio promotion throughout
London and Germany, and with the U.S. radio stations in
December.[101]

2013 list.[127]
AbsolutePunk reviewer Thomas Nassi summarizes that
McKinnon chronicle[d] the last three years of his bands
collective life, from the opening track to the last song
often reminisc[ing] on the bands beginnings. Another
recurring matter was demanding respect, and that the
band doesn't stray from their combination of pop punk
and metalcore.[1] Writing for Alternative Press, Brendan
Manley called the album a classic ADTR record in every sense, with Manley favoring the pop punk songs:
"[pop punk] wins, providing the most memorable moments on the record. Manley noted the listener would
hear constant touches of the unmistakable chug-a-chug
algorithm ADTR that the band had previously used
on their other albums.[2] Tamsyn Wilce, for Alter the
Press!, wrote that the albums opening track throw[s]
you right into the whirlpool of pop-mosh goodness proving that that the band returned with a massive bunch of
solid anthems. Wilce also wrote that the songs make
up for the amount of in-studio chatter included on the
album.[3] Rock Sound's Andy Ritchie called Right Back
at It Again unmistakably the 'All I Want' of 'Common
Courtesy'" and suggesting that lines in Sometimes You're
the Hammer, Sometimes You're the Nail, and The Document Speaks for Itself, were digs at Victory. Ritchie
also wrote that the pace is broken up by I'm Already
Gone which was well-aligned slotted before Violence
(Enough Is Enough)".[128]

Physical editions were released on November 25[102] in


the U.S. and Europe by the bands own label, ADTR
Records,[nb 10] and in Australia in cooperation with 3Wise
Records on November 29.[nb 11] In early December, it was
revealed the album had sold 92,874 copies in the U.S.
within rst week of release: 40,550 copies from the digital release, and 52,324 from the physical release.[104] The
band performed Right Back at It Again and City of
Ocala acoustically for Billboard.[105] The band went on
a UK and Europe in January and February 2014.[106] A
marble coloured vinyl edition was released in the UK
on February 10.[nb 12][108] On March 25, End of Me was
released as a radio single.[109] On March 9, 2015, a music
4.5.6
video was released for City Of Ocala.[110]

Reception
Retail release bonus tracks

Before release, the album had been widely


anticipated.[111][112][113][114][115][116]
Recalling
the
bands fans response to Violence (Enough Is Enough)",
McKinnon said it was one of the best responses we've
ever had coming out of the gate. I can't tell you how
excited that made all of us.[27] The album received a
Metacritic aggregate score of 80.[117] Due to the way
in which the album was released it was ineligible to
chart within its rst week of release on the Billboard
200, however, it was predicted that had it been eligible,
it would've debuted in the Top 10.[118] It eventually
debuted at number 47 on Billboard 200 and peaked at
number 37 three weeks later.[119] The album had debuted
on the UK album chart at number 34,[120] and on the
UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart at number 1.[121] The
album also charted at number 40 in Austria[122] and at
number 48 in Germany.[123] Right Back at It Again
peaked at number 33 on the Alternative Songs chart[124]
and at number 40 on the Mainstream Rock Songs
chart.[125] Same Book But Never the Same Page was
named as one of Alternative Press' 11 New Songs You
Need To Hear Right Now.[126] The album was placed
at number 4 on Rock Sound's The 50 Best Albums Of

Thrash Hits reviewer Tom Doyle said that the rst track,
Right Where You Want Me to Be, started things o
in pleasant enough fashion with its bouncing, superinfectious chorus. [1] Doyle called the bands cover of
Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone" a pretty sedate
plod through a song which wasnt really that good to begin with, and that their cover of The Fray's "Over My
Head (Cable Car)" suited better to the bands style.[1]

Music and lyrics

Lead vocalist, Jeremy McKinnon wrote the lyrics, while


the music was written by Tom Denney, McKinnon, guitarist Kevin Ska, producer Chad Gilbert and A Day
to Remember.[2] The title came from an occasion when
McKinnon and bassist Joshua Woodard were in a rough
neighborhood in West Palm Beach, Florida.[3] The pair
were walking down Drexel Road in the early hours of
the morning; they looked up to notice signs saying "Fort
Lauderdale".[4] In an interview with PopCrush in 2011,
McKinnon said All Signs Point to Lauderdale was when
you get the feeling like you're stuck in a place thats leading you nowhere and standing up for yourself and taking
charge of your life.[5] The song talks about being young
and stuck in a town that you feel like you don't belong in.
Sometimes, you feel like you want to get away from everything and everybody and do your own thing.[6]

7.2.1

Background and writing

That was a conscious move by Max and


myself, because we were listening to alternative
and indie music and talking about some song
I don't remember what it was. I said, 'Ah, I love
this song,' and Max was like, 'If they would just
write a damn pop chorus on it!' It was driving
him nuts, because that indie song was sort of on
six, going to seven, going to eight, the chorus
comes . . . and it goes back down to ve. It
drove him crazy. And when he said that, it was
like, light bulb. 'Why don't we do that, but put
a big chorus on it?' It worked.[6]
Since U Been Gone was the last track that Clarkson
recorded for Breakaway;[7] it was recorded in Sweden.[8]
At rst, Clarkson was not fully convinced at the prospect
of recording the song saying, It didn't have any lyrics
and the melody really wasn't nalized [...] the track was
done on a computer, there was no band on it. My record
label was freaking out about it and I was, like, why?"[9]
Clarkson also explained that when she rst heard Since
U Been Gone, she felt that it sounded a little bit pop
for her direction and she decided to tweak the song musically by incorporating drums and guitars.[2] Clarkson told
MTV that the song is about a relationship turned sour although it was going well at the very beginning.[7] The song
was ocially released to mainstream radio stations in the
United States on November 16, 2004 as the lead single of
Breakaway.[10]

I went to Max Martins studio in Sweden. We recorded


it there with Max and the co-writer of the song, Lukasz
Gottwald. The rst time I heard the song I thought it was
7.2.2 Composition
a little poppy, so I asked if we could rock the track a little.
We put some heavier guitars and harder drums on it. Now Since U Been Gone was written and produced by Max

Breakaway in late 2004 when she was advised by her Dave Donnelly of Sputnikmusic compared the musical

relationship.[19] Steve Lampiris of ZME Music lauded
Clarksons vocals as the heart of the song. He praised
the way Clarkson sings the chorus, which implies that she
was the one who ended the relationship. He also thought
that the line I can breathe for the rst time/ Im so moving on, yeah yeah was believable that either her ex is a
total prick or shes deserves [sic] an Oscar nom.[20] In an
interview with Dan Snierson of Entertainment Weekly, it
was noted that Clarkson sang So together but so broken
up inside/ 'Cause I can't breathe in Behind These Hazel
Eyes but in Since U Been Gone, she sang But since
you been gone/ I can breathe for the rst time. When
asked whether she was a bipolar asthmatic, Clarkson responded that Behind These Hazel Eyes is about a dipstick who is unhappy because she has completely screwed
up and Since U Been Gone is an expression of relief because her ex is now miserable.[21]

alternative rock.[29] In 2015, Gary Trust of Billboard
wrote that Kelly Clarksons Since U Been Gone, cowritten by Max Martin, especially helped lead to pure
pops reemergence, and the breakthroughs of Rihanna,
Katy Perry, Swift and Lady Gaga would soon follow (as
well as Spears own revival)", stating that the song began to erode hip-hops early '00s reign, with women at

and pulling out clothes, destroying them and singing in a


pile of them. After the second chorus, she walks into a
bedroom and begins to tear the pillow on the bed, lling
the room with feathers. The scenes of Clarkson singing
with her band then alternate with a montage of her destroying the apartment, breaks the glass window from the
door, breaks the vase, television, clock, fridge, lights, microwave, phone, furniture and the chair. Later, Clarkson
takes a framed photo of her ex-boyfriend with another girl
in the living room, before pushing a tall CD rack over.
She then smashes the framed photo through a glass table, breaking it in half. Having decimated the apartment,
Clarkson walks out the door and down the hallway with a
hat on her head, just as her ex-boyfriend appears with his
girlfriend, walking arm in arm. Clarkson hides her face
as she walks away from them. The nal scene shows the
couple seeing their damaged apartment in shock and the
scene of the locket swinging.[61]

Reception and accolades

Music video

Background
The music video for Since U Been Gone was directed
by Alex De Rako in early November 2004.[61] Clarkson
told MTV that she conceived the idea of the video after
assuming that revenge is what every girl wants to do when
their boyfriend cheats on them. She added, You know,
'Why don't I just go trash her house? [...] And so I do it
in the video. All I do is break stu. Its a cool job. I could
get used to this.[7] Clarkson expressed that in the music
video, viewers would get to see her act out of character.
She explained, In the beginning, I'm like tipping things
over and smearing mud all over the walls and it seems
like my apartment, but it ends up being the other girls
that hes with, so its a humorous video.[7] The music
video premiered on Total Request Live on November 16,
2004.[7]
Synopsis
The music video begins with Clarkson sitting on a couch
in an apartments living room, holding a heart-shaped
locket in her hand. The next scene shows Clarkson in
the bathroom where she xes her face in the mirror, she
opens the medicine cabinet and tossing all the pills in the
medicine cabinet over her shoulder and messing all the
bathroom items on the oor, squirting the toothpaste into
the sink. When she gets to a container of birth control
pills, she turns on the water in the sink, snaps the pills
out, and drops them down the drain. Clarkson then starts
to take other items; she throws a container of makeup
powder spray in the air and smears a container of facial
mud mask on the wall. During the chorus, Clarkson and
her band perform the song for a dancing crowd in a club.
After the rst chorus, Clarkson walks into a room full of
closets. She cuts up dresses, riing through the closets

Stephen Thompson of NPR Music was disappointed with


the music video because it undercuts its message to an
alarming degree: The words say 'Since you've been gone
/ I can breathe for the rst time,' but the pictures say,
'Breaking up with you necessitates destroying all of your
property.'"[27] At the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards,
the music video received nominations for three awards; it
won Best Female Video and Best Pop Video,[62] and received a nomination for the Viewers Choice Awards but
lost to Green Day's "Boulevard of Broken Dreams".[63][64]
MusicOMH ranked the music video as the 86th best video
of the last decade.[65] On February 2012, the music video
received a Pop-Up Video treatment by VH1 which shows
pops up bubbles containing trivia, witticisms and borderline sexual innuendos throughout the video.[66]
