Days Of The New

By the late '90s, a whole new generation had missed out on experiencing the likes of Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, and Nirvana first-hand (with some perhaps not even knowing of their existence at all), so a new crop of similarly styled bands picked up the slack, including Days of the New. Originally hailing from Charlestown, IN, before relocating to Louisville, KY, the group's leader from the get-go was singer/guitarist/songwriter Travis Meeks, who recruited friends Jesse Vest (bass), Matt Taul (drums), and Todd Whitener (guitar), who along with Meeks, were still teenagers at the time. The group's largely acoustic-based sound instantly brought to mind Alice in Chains' more tranquil releases (Sap, Jar of Flies, Unplugged), as Meeks' vocal delivery and lyrics were quite comparable to both Layne Staley and Jim Morrison. The quartet caught the ear of former R.E.M. producer Scott Litt, who signed the group to his newly formed label, Outpost, and oversaw the group's self-titled 1997 release. The album was an immediate hit with the MTV crowd on the strength of such singles as "Touch, Peel and Stand" and "The Down Town," and the group spent the summer of 1998 opening up for another one of their musical heroes, Metallica.

But during the tour, tempers between the bandmembers began to flair and rumors of an impending breakup circulated. The rumors proved to be true shortly after the tour's completion, as Meeks fired everyone in the band (save for Taul). 1999 saw the release of Days of the New's sophomore release, again self-titled, which despite Meeks' attempts at creating a sprawling masterpiece (complete with choir, orchestra, and bombastic arrangements), failed to sell as well as its predecessor. 2000 saw Meeks cover the Doors classic "The End" with the surviving Doors members for a taping of VH1's Storytellers series (as well as recording a studio version that appeared on the Doors tribute disc Stoned Immaculate: The Music of the Doors), as he continued writing for the third Days of the New album. The band's third album, again self-titled, saw the light of day in 2001, with their leader now letting elements of prog rock seep into the music. With Meeks the only original bandmember still in attendance by that point, it confirmed what many knew all along, that Days of the New is basically a Meeks solo project. ~ Greg Prato

Really good band, but those of you who doesn't know, Tantric was the band formed after Travis Meeks legitimately pissed off everybody else in Days. Tantric became 10 times more popular with their new lead singer Hugo Feirira

So this read this or you'll die s**t is spreading to pandora now? This is getting a bit f**king ridiculous, guys.
This band is one of several I grew up listening to. I remember being three, hearing soundgarden, nirvana, Ozzy's older music, Metallica, and I especially remember this band.

Saw them with Jerry Cantrell and mighty met back in '98. Great show. This band and especially the first album has a lot to do with me still being alive 17 years later.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. However if you don't read this you will die in two days. Now that you've started reading this don't stop. This is so scary. Put this on five songs in the next 143 min. when your done press F6 an your lovers name will pop up on your screen in big letters. Trust me it works.

Travis was a really close friend of mine and I haven't heard from him in 4 yrs. I wish him well. Hes in California and I am in the ville he was a big part and inspiration to my life growing up he's a good hearted person aside his faults nobody is perfect Amanda coursey

I don’t know the difference between different genres. I just know what I like. I heard Meeks give an interview on a local radio station and he seems like a guy that has to be true to his art and unfortunatel y that is not the same as being commercial.

This was pretty ground breaking when it came out it was heavy metal on acoustic! This band hands down got me into acoustic playing & yeah it's similar to AIC a lot of bands are but these guys stand out a lot more
Report as inappropriate
***SOLID STUFF***
Report as inappropriate
You can chill out man. The reason people say they're similar to AiC is because pretty much no other band (aside from early tantric) sounds like them. And I don't recall anyone saying they were grunge. They fall in the post grunge era but not post grunge sound
Report as inappropriate
Seriously, calling DotN grunge because their first record has lots of drop-D tuning and introverted lyrics, and came out during the grunge era is about as convincing as calling Guns 'n' Roses grunge because Axl wore a flannel in the video to Don't Cry.
Report as inappropriate
Sounds like Alice in Chains?! Are you people nuts? AiC were one of my most favorite bands, but to me DotN sounds almost nothing like them. AiC is bluesy, grungy metal. The only DotN record that sounds even sort of grungy (the only arguable commonality) was the Yellow album (which is nothing like Red or Green), and there is nothing bluesy about that record at all. Would it sound grungy plugged into an overdriven distortion pedal? Maybe, but so did R.E.M. Travis sounds like nobody.
