A Day to Remember – Pop Mosh Band

A recent high school graduate, Cody Saltsman plans to pursue a career in physical or respiratory therapy. In his free time, Cody Saltsman enjoys playing football, star gazing, and listening to his favorite band, A Day to Remember.

Formed in Ocala, Florida, in 2003, A Day to Remember plays a blend of emo, metal, and hardcore music that many of its fans refer to as “pop mosh.” The original five-member band consisted of Jeremy McKinnon on vocals, Neil Westfall and Tom Denney on guitar, Joshua Woodard on bass, and Bobby Scruggs on drums. The band released its first full-length album, And Their Name Was Treason, in 2005, but it only sold a few thousand copies.

The album did, however, attract the attention of the prominent Chicago-based Victory Records, and the band went on to release three more albums under the Victory label with its new drummer Alex Shelnutt and new guitarist Kevin Skaff, who previously played with Four Letter Lie. Following a dispute with Victory Records, A Day to Remember self-released its latest album, Common Courtesy, in 2013.

The band is currently on tour in the United Kingdom and will return to the United States for shows starting in December. For a list of upcoming show dates and locations, visit http://www.adtr.com.
