In addition to performing at this year’s APMAs, A Day To Remember is hitting the road with Blink-182 for a summer arena tour set to kick off July 22 at Viejas Arena in San Diego, California. News of the tour follows the recent Zane Lowe/Beats 1 Radio Show premiere of A Day To Remember’s new single and video, “Paranoia,” which has amassed more than 3 million Spotify streams and 2.5 million YouTube views.
Recorded with producer Bill Stevenson (Descendants, Black Flag) and mixed by Grammy winner Andy Wallace (Foo Fighters, Slayer), “Paranoia” is the band’s first new music since 2013’s Common Courtesy. Over the course of the past several years, each of ADTR’s releases have hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock, Indie and/or Alternative Charts, they’ve sold more than a million units, racked up over 400 million Spotify streams and 500 million YouTube views, have had two gold-selling albums and singles (and one silver album in the UK) and sold out entire continental tours, amassing a global fanbase whose members number in the millions. All of which explains why Rolling Stone called them “An Artist You Need To Know.”
