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

@billstacyth a r p Travis fell into a serious meth addiction it was on a episode of a show called intervention . He just couldn't get it together man the drugs really took hold and it's a shame. They reunited but his ego drove the band off once again and they finally called it quits for good.

@ tuckywoodpro d u c t i o n s the new frontman for Tantric is an a** but if you read about the very beginning of the band of Tantric the frontman was Travis Meeks thus why the sound/vocals was the best! Despite Meeks drug use he is so talented and I think we'll all love his voice and his unique sound. Hang in there Meeks I'll never get tired of DOTN!! Awesome voice lyrics and sound is what attracts me..

DOTN is legendary genius ...trav is a God in my opinion. Hang in there brother

This band opened for Metallica says in bio may be true but hard believe. Bio makes it seem like the frontman had some kinda Axel Rose complex hahahaha xD

Good call Cattwalker, as far as what you said about Layne. He was/is a phenom that we just didnt get enough of...period. I may speak from a bias position on this though. His mother Nancy helped me get clean/sober. I will always be in her debt for that.

He has a good voice but to compare him to Layne Staley is laughable and ridiculous. He sounds like all the other singers that try to mimic Layne- that's all.

Travis Meaks is Days of The New. He wrote all of the songs. Other members were just for background. Tantric sucks major a** and the lead singer of that band is a major douche.

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.

I will always listen to these tracks: therefore Days of the New will never be a thing of my past.
