Contrary to an earlier announcement, DARK NEW DAY, the new "supergroup" featuring Brett Hestla (ex-CREED, VIRGOS MERLOT) on vocals, Will Hunt (ex-SKRAPE, TOMMY LEE) on drums, Clint Lowery (ex-SEVENDUST) on guitar, Clint's brother Corey Lowery (ex-STEREOMUD, STUCK MOJO) on bass, and Troy McLawhorn (ex-DOUBLE DRIVE) on guitar, will NOT be making their live debut on Saturday, February 19 at Wills Pub in Orlando, Florida. According to a posting on the group's forum, "the band feels bad about not being able to play, but they never told Wills Pub they were going to play, and that it was a possibility. Some of the members of the band have previous engagements on this date that will prevent them from playing."
As previously reported, DARK NEW DAY recently finished mixing their debut album with producer/mixer Ben Grosse, who has previously worked with FILTER, FUEL, SEVENDUST and ALTER BRIDGE. A June release via Warner Bros. Records is expected.
