Earlier this month, A Day To Remember announced the postponement of their new album, You’re Welcome, which was slated to come out originally on November 15th via Fueled by Ramen. Today (Nov. 27), the band shared an update on the reasoning for the delay of the album on social media.
Back in early November the band announced the delay in the release of the album saying, “A couple months back we announced we’d be releasing our album Nov 15th. It’s taken a little longer than expected and we just aren’t done with it yet. So we are moving this to early 2020. Rest assured there’s a lot of new music coming out very soon and we can’t wait to share it with you. Thanks for supporting us all these years and see you out there on the Degenerates Tour.”
Skaff told WSOU about the delay saying, “It got pushed back because the art of the record isn’t done yet,” Continuing to say “We still can’t find a good cover for the record. I know it doesn’t really matter nowadays, with streaming and everything, but we just want everything to be perfect before it comes out. And there are still a couple of songs that are still getting mixed that we just need to find the right mixer. It’s only getting pushed back, what? two, two and a half months, so it’s not too bad. It’s not like a Kayne [West] thing where it’s never gonna come out.”
The album is said to be one of the band’s happiest and most positive records to date and Skaff told WSOU that he think it is because, “I think just getting older and just being comfortable with ourselves” Also, adding in “Our lawsuit is over. I think we’re all just in a good clear headspace. Everyone’s married, except me. If I was writing the songs, it would have been a lot more depressing.”
Skaff also told WSOU that, “It’s a longer album. There’s gonna be a bunch of songs on it… I think there’s a little something for everybody on it.”
This album marks the bands first release on their new label home of Fueled By Ramen which Skaff also said in the interview with WSOU about their signing with the new label saying, “It was cool, man. It was time for us. We were actually at liberty, legally, to sign with somebody else. And everyone at Fueled has been our friends for years — we’ve known a lot of them for a long time — and it just felt super comfortable and super easy just to transition the train into Fueled By Ramen. And they’ve been nothing but great to us literally ever since we got there. I know we just started, but it’s been awesome.”
A Day To Remember’s forthcoming album, You’re Welcome, is set to be released in early 2020 via Fueled By Ramen. The band has already given two tastes of the new record with their singles “Degenerates” and “Resentment.” The band performed “Resentment” for the first time live lastnight at their first of four homecoming shows in Orlando, FL at House Of Blues Orlando.
