New Years Day will be releasing a new EP titled “Diary Of A Creep” on January 26, via Red Music/Century Media. The effort will come with one new song titled “Disgust Me,“ as well as the following covers: Garbage‘s “I’m Only Happy When It Rains” feat. Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale, Linkin Park‘s “Crawling,“ Pantera‘s “Fucking Hostile,“ No Doubt‘s “Don’t Speak,” and New Order‘s “Bizarre Love Triangle“.
Ash Costello commented:
“I want to start by saying, it was incredibly difficult to narrow this down to the 5 songs I wanted to cover the most. Narrowing it down to 20 songs was hard! Let alone just 5. It felt very important to me to not only pay tribute to the artists that shaped who I am today, but to share it with all of you.
It’s easy to dismiss where an artist has come from if you have no clue who they worshipped when they were just kids in school, dreaming of being a real musician someday. Honestly, everyday, I cant believe how far I’ve come and how absolutely happy I am that I get to share my music with whoever wants to listen, and these are just a few of the songs that helped me and shaped me along the way.
When I was just a middle schooler, trying to get thru those horrible teenage years, I wish I had known then, that someday I would become one of the heroes I looked up to, and it would be all thanks to YOU. I am grateful to you for listening and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.”
The band are also working on a new album, which is tentatively set to be released in the fall, and have a tour planned with In This Moment, P.O.D. and Ded.
