History

Early years and debut album (2003–2006)

After all playing in different groups in the Ocala music scene, singer Jeremy McKinnon, guitarists Neil Westfall and Tom Denney, bassist Joshua Woodard, and drummer Bobby Scruggs came together in 2003. Soon after, the band embarked on a "DIY" tour, playing well over 200 shows, making a name for themselves. They were signed to Indianola Records, from which they recorded their debut full-length debut album, titled And Their Name Was Treason in May 2005. The album sold 8,690 copies but the band felt that bigger and better things were to come. "A friend of mine said he had the AIM screenname of someone at Victory Records,” Woodard said. "I didn’t believe him, but I still started communicating with the guy. We IM’ed back and forth for about six months, and it happened that we were playing with the band On the Last Day in a town outside of Chicago—and this guy was going to be there filming it. It was our first time we ever played in Illinois, yet the 50-60 kids there were singing along to our tunes like they’d been fans all their lives."

Signing to Victory Records and For Those Who Have Heart (2007–2008)

Soon after signing with Victory Records, the band with their new drummer Alex Shellnutt went into Zing Studios to record their second full length.

The album, titled For Those Who Have Heart was released in January 2007 on Victory Records and peaked at #17 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart and #43 on the Top Independent Albums chart. On September 24, 2007, they put a cover of Kelly Clarkson's hit single, "Since U Been Gone" on their MySpace. This was later featured on the re-release of For Those Who Have Heart, released in February 2008.

A Day to Remember toured the United Kingdom for the first time ever in January 2008, and were later nominated for "Best International Newcomer" at the 2008 Kerrang! Awards,[1] but lost to Black Tide.[2] Afterwards, the band had a lengthy tour opening for Silverstein[3] along with The Devil Wears Prada, and Protest the Hero (who dropped off the tour and were replaced by A Static Lullaby).

Fans and critics alike have described this blend as "pop-mosh," and "popcore".[14] When asked in an interview with AbsolutePunk about their sound, Jeremy McKinnon stated:

It's weird. See it's funny because we have been doing this for so long. When we started, this shit was not cool. EVERYONE told us mixing the two genres wouldn't work. Hell, a lot of people still feel that way. We’ve just always played what we wanted to hear, and to be honest people weren't doing it back then. We loved pop punk, we loved hardcore bands, and we couldn’t decide what to be. So we said fuck it. Let’s do them both.
