Blending pop-styled vocal melodies with heavier, intricate instrumentation, the Georgia based hard rock band Days To Come works tirelessly at taking their brand of positivity as far as it can go. Striving for professionalism & honesty, DTC focuses on solid songwriting & high energy live shows as well as growing & maintaining their fan-base by interacting via social networking.
How would you describe your music?
Brandon – We’re continually developing and working towards what “Days To Come” sounds like, but I want to be able to say that we have pop styled, catchy vocal melodies layered with intricate music supporting it. Basically pop-prog.
Tell us about the history of the project?
Justin – The band officially formed in 2014. I met Brandon at a local music store one afternoon before a gig and we hit it off pretty quickly. Jalen joined us in early 2018. We’ve had a few lineup changes over the years but we feel pretty confident in the team we currently have.
What are your influences/musical heroes?
Jalen – I wouldn’t say that any one person has influenced me the most because that would undermine the hundreds of musicians that have inspired me to do what I do today. I believe that anyone who has a dedicated spirit to make music is an inspiration.
What inspires you?
Brandon – Watching great musicians and artists. I love getting lost on YouTube watching live concerts and music videos. Watching these artists push the boundaries, create, and perform always inspires me to be a better musician.
Do you write on the road or do you prefer to write in the studio?
Justin – Wherever I am, I try to set aside time to write. I’ll come up with melodies and lyrics throughout the day, but I like to make time to sit down with my acoustic and work on different ideas.
What is your favourite song to perform live?
Jalen – Siren. It’s our brand new single and it’s a lot of fun to play live.
What would be your dream tour to be a part of?
Jalen – I would love to tour with Sevendust. They’re one of the hardest working bands in the genre.
What are your current thoughts on the music industry?
Justin – We live in a wonderful time. For the first time, indie artists are able to build a fan base around the world (anyone with an internet connection) without the help of a major label. That’s a pretty big deal.
What is the funniest/weirdest experience you’ve had on tour?
Brandon – A few years ago, we had the opportunity to support Art Of Anarchy at their Atlanta show at the Masquerade during their tour. Before the show, Justin and I were walking backstage and we were able to meet Scott Stapp. When Justin went to shake Scott’s hand they couldn’t decide on what they were gonna do. They ended up looking at each other awkwardly, I said hey, and we all parted ways.
What are your future plans?
Justin – We’re excited to release our next single, ‘Siren’, as well as our first music video. We recently partnered with management company Crown Artist Development & indie label From The Depths Entertainment & we’re so excited for 2019. This year is gonna be a big year for us & we can’t wait to share it with you!
