Take a look through the eyes of Crashing Daylight's band members and you quickly will find the story of triumphs, struggles and pure passion that drives the band. Vocalist and rhythm guitarist Brandon Zastrow states “I realize that many struggles will arise and nothing is ever handed to anybody. The odds are against us, but we won’t settle for anything less than everything. What we give will always carry us. I think it is evident in our music and hopefully, in how we focus ourselves.”
Driven to grasp success from their own work, Crashing Daylight will not stop until they captivate the hearts of fans nationwide. With powerfully meaningful messages spanning from heartbreak to overcoming adversity, the young band is ready to create their own underdog story. When asked, lead guitarist Evan Ogaard stated, “This EP is a cumulation of things that I have learned in life and through music…it portrays how I act and feel.”
Musicality is not the only thing that shines through with this band. With intricate riffs, catchy choruses, and a unique, compelling vibe in their music- Crashing Daylight is a group with complex messages hidden behind the music. From the powerful mid-tempo rock anthem “Scars” to an agonizing confession in “Can’t Let Go” to the pain in mending in “The Nature of Feeling”, the group is sure to deliver powerful, catchy rock music as their songwriting continues to progress.
Formed in April of 2008, the band has shown continuous growth every day. Bassist Joe Bottoms states, “We’ve created a largely-focused new band on the scene today. In a few short months we have gone further than many.” Thriving on their passion to connect to fans, Kaufman stated “I love everything about music. I look forward to playing live. It’s fun to see people’s faces come out and feel the energy.”
The new album is a constant highlight reel of strong songs that help define the group’s current direction, but are also remarkably cohesive as an entire body of work. Look for their debut EP release “The Nature of Feeling” at tour sites and online in January 2011. Their first single will hit radio in late 2010.
