28th October 2022

Forged from the fires of the London music scene in 2017, The Bad Day are often described as “The Killers meet Springsteen”

The band’s first album came out in 2021 on two labels; Lunaria in the U.K. and P-Vine in Japan. The album was a critical success picking up awards and getting international airplay on BBC Radio 2, BBC introducing, Planet Rock and many other major stations in Japan and Brazil.

The band’s second album came out June 3rd 2022 and is very unique; a 2 part concept album called “The Bad Day”. All the songs flow into each other and tell a tragic story of freedom and love. The first single “Devil’s Lullaby” from the album won Classic Rock Magazine’s Track Of The Week.

Mastered at Abbey Road by Miles Showell who worked on Sgt Peppers and is their vinyl specialist. The album received rave reviews including 9/10 in Classic Rock Magazine and helped them grace the cover and be featured artists in numerous UK and US magazines.

The Bad Day have played major festivals such as the Isle of Wight (twice) and many other UK and European festivals. They also have some very cool headline shows and festivals booked in for 2022 and 2023.

The Bad Day have supported some very cool artists such as multiple Grammy award winner Delbert McClinton at Times Square, NYC, USA and rubbed shoulders with many other iconic musicians at various festival dates in 2022.

The Bad Day have some great partners in the music industry (instrument and amplifier manufacturers) and Adam is a member of The Recording Academy (New York Chapter) so is involved in voting on The Grammy awards.

The Bad Day (album) is also a current first round entry for the Grammy Awards 2023.
