The tale of A Day To Remember’s journey to becoming independent once more continues this afternoon as the band has just launched preorders for their highly-anticipated new album, Common Courtesy, in spite of not yet receiving clearance to release the album on its scheduled release date.
Last week, our friends at PropertyOfZack ran a story based off a comment from an AbsolutePunk story that claimed A Day To Remember would not know whether or not they could release their long awaited album Common Courtesy until October 2. Still, the band has continued to push ahead with promotional plans, and today the digital album preorders were officially launched. The band did note, however, that “all dates are estimated and subject to change” for the album. You can view the artwork below:
If A Day To Remember are able to break free of Victory and push ahead with this October 8 release we could soon see a new wave of bigger names taking control back into their own hands. Aside from partnerships for various physical releases, there really is no reason for a band the size of A Day To Remember to remain with a label, and there are at least five groups with similarly sized fan-bases I could see following in their footsteps if this move pays off. We’ll continue to follow the story and bring you updates as they arise. Until then, comment below and let us know if you plan on picking up Common Courtesy whenever it arrives in stores.
