Earlier this month, Queens, NY metalcore outfit As Days Fade came out of hiatus with the announcement of their EP Resurrection, which drops June 3rd. To follow this up, they have released a lyric video for the debut single “I Don’t Want You”. The song has an interesting mood, as though rising from ashes, which is perfect considering the subject matter. Says the band of the single:
“The main message behind this song is knowing you’re in a bad relationship and having the strength and courage to step out of your comfort zone and say “you aren’t the one for me, you are hurting me and I need you out of my life right now”. Musically, we incorporated both groove orientated/up-beat rhythms to symbolize the euphoric feel of a relationship as well as aggressive breakdown rhythms to emphasize the distraught emotion towards one another.”
The diversified musicality will be appreciated by fans, and if this is any indicator of how the rest of the album is going to be, the band is set to have quite the triumphant release.

Since 2008, As Days Fade has been playing a thoughtful brand of metalcore which focuses on darker subject matter and how it is on us to be positive and keep going despite adversity.
Their message and intense live set has resonated with audiences, allowing them to play with prominent genre companions Eyes Set To Kill, Texas In July, and Ice Nine Kills, as well as melodic hardcore masters The Ghost Inside and even Bam Margera. Though they were derailed by the departure of their former drummer in 2014, the band has come back with full force. They are very much the As Days Fade fans fell in love with, now new and improved.
You can check out the band’s last EP, Carpe Noctem, on Spotify and iTunes. Be sure take a look at their merch and to follow the ADF boys in their adventures on their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Big things are in the works, stay tuned!
