A Day to Remember says it’s a ‘big bucket list thing’ to tour with Blink-182

A Day to Remember are touring on the same bill as Blink-182, and it’s a dream come true for the guys. In an interview with Pennsylvania’s Beaver County Times, A Day to Remember singer Jeremy McKinnon says the Blink-182 gig is “literally the sickest tour we could be on.”

“This is a big bucket list thing to play with Blink,” McKinnon said, adding that Blink-182’s 1997 album “Dude Ranch” was a big musical influence.

A Day to Remember is touring ahead of the release of their new album, “Bad Vibrations,” which will drop on Sept. 2.

McKinnon and the band went about recording Bad Vibrations in a very different way than ever before. They wrote the album in a secluded cabin in the Colorado mountains.

“We broke the cycle of recording we had been following, which had alienated some members of the band,” McKinnon said. “We just let things happen organically and in the moment. I think it will forever change the way we make music.”

A Day to Remember and Blink-182 will be on the road together through October.
