Brace for impact! We've got the guys in A Day to Remember coming by tomorrow to chat on the website. Tomorrow, August 8th, at 1pm EST the band will be chatting in a thread here on the homepage. So, come stop by and talk about the band's Parks & Devastation tour, their Self-Help Fest, and other plans for the rest of the year. This should be a good one.
A Day To Remember have announced they will be bringing their "Self-Help Festival" to Philadelphia, PA on October 4th at Festival Pier in Penn's Landing. VIP tickets are available now on their website and general admission tickets will go on sale Saturday.
2014's Self Help Festival in Philadelphia will feature top acts including A Day To Remember, Bring Me The Horizon, The Wonder Years, Motionless In White, The Story So Far, Chiodos, Gnarwolves, and more to be announced.
"We can actually make it the quality that we want to make it at," says frontman Jeremy McKinnon. "Instead of somebody saying, 'This is the cutoff for the budget,' we can say, 'No, this is going to be around forever and we want to put out quality stuff.'"
Soundscan has confirmed that A Day To Remember's Common Courtesy has sold 92,874 copies. A portion of the press-release is below.
Today Neilsen Soundscan verifies that the band sold 40,550 copies through their own digital direct to fan presale as well as 52,324 albums through traditional retail outlets such as Best Buy, iTunes and Hot Topic. In total, the new album has sold 92,874 copies in the US alone. The album will not debut on the Billboard chart this week due to the untraditional nature of this release but the band is very thankful for the overwhelming support and loyalty of their fans. Had Common Courtesy been eligible the band would have had a Top 10 debut this week.
