According to their record label bio, the motto of Kenosha, Wisconsin band Lazarus A.D. is “thrash or die.” So, the dude’s must be totally stoked that they’re about to hit the road with thrash legends Testament and post-thrash demigods Unearth. The tour launches in Seattle on May 2 and runs through June 15 in San Luis Obispo, California. Lazarus A.D. are currently in the middle of a tour with Amon Amarth, Goatwhore and Skeletonwitch. Those dates run through April 29 in Raleigh, North Carolina.

A punch to the face is what radio needs to end the ceaseless mediocrity, DayMinus7 is that punch. The Ft Myers quintet began as two friends in St Petersburg Florida with a dream. That dream of course is to be one of the biggest rock bands of their generation. We are now at the beginning stages of that dream.
Cliff and Eddie worked on projects throughout their youth and teens. Cliff then moved to Cape Coral, Florida, Where he met Cody through a mutual friend. Soon after, Eddie moved down and DayMinus7 was born. The three piece, (with Cliff on guitar) played throughout Florida at local clubs, podcasts, and local radio block parties. As time passed they grew together musically, and Cliff put down the guitar to concentrate on singing. They decided to turn the band into a five piece so they could capture a bigger sound. So began the search for the right two guys. By chance Kit walked into the music store where Cliff worked and started playing guitar. Kit was in the band soon after that. Mike was part of the local music scene. He always seemed to be popping up at gigs and when the guys heard him play they knew right away he was our guy.
The band’s sound really came together quickly with Kit and Mike leading the way on guitar in well choreographed melodies and harmonies. Cody’s powerful beat keeping time. Cliff’s melodic voice and powerful lyrics compliment the music. And tying it all together is Eddie’s solid, groove tone. With all this talent coming together, it’s no surprise that Dayminus7′s drive, and compelling sound, would catch someone’s attention.
Eddie at Red Rocket Entertainment took notice and quickly placed them in the studio with acclaimed Producer Paul Trust who has worked with such bands as Endo, Diecast, EkoTren and Atom Smash to name a few and soon after they begun working on writing the band’s debut EP.
Now fresh out the studio the band is set to take on the world. One only has to ask are you ready for DayMinus7…?
The Florida based rockers Day Minus 7 has finished tracking 4 songs with Acclaimed producer Paul Trust,
the single “Hate You” should be hitting select radio markets very soon so stay tuned!
