DARK NEW DAY Is 'Branching Out' On Acoustic EP

July 13, 2006

Doug Miller of Rehearsals.com recently conducted an interview with DARK NEW DAY, the new band featuring Clint Lowery (ex-SEVENDUST) on guitar, Brett Hestla (ex-CREED, VIRGOS MERLOT) on vocals, Will Hunt (ex-SKRAPE, TOMMY LEE) on drums, Clint's brother Corey Lowery (ex-STEREOMUD, STUCK MOJO) on bass, and Troy McLawhorn (ex-DOUBLE DRIVE) on guitar.

"We've known each other for so long that it's really clear to us who each other is," Hunt said. "There's really no surprises in this. And not to say that we don't have bad days. Every band has bad days. But we seem to adapt to it as just, you know, that's just living together. It's just being a family."

DARK NEW DAY are preparing to release an acoustic EP, "Black Porch Acoustic Sessions", that will follow their latest album, "12 Year Silence".

"We're here for a reason," Hestla said during DARK NEW DAY's recent practice session at CenterStaging, the renowned facility in Burbank, Calif., which was recorded in high-definition for broadcast on CenterStaging's new web site, Rehearsals.com. "It's our first time to actually perform these in front of people. We've done these songs acoustically on the bus and at radio stations and we did a performance for our record label, just acoustics.

"And they were really into the whole idea of us showing this side to the public. So this is our branching out and showing a different side of the band, and showing that we're capable of many different things as musicians."
