For most musicians, performing in front of a lively, enthusiastic audience is the dream. For others, it’s the thrill of playing alongside one of your favourite bands. Then there are some that are lucky enough to experience both.
With just over a week to go until renowned metal-core band, In Hearts Wake, come to Yass, our three local support bands are vigorously preparing for the youth concert. Yass metal-core outfit, Day 4, will be one of those bands.
“We’re stoked by the opportunity to play with In Hearts Wake,” vocalist Brett Darmody said.
“We’re all massive fans of the group and to play alongside an industry heavyweight like them is just an amazing opportunity.”
The six-piece group formed after hearing about the Indent show.
“I would say we have been together for about six weeks, because it sounds better than a month and a half,” Darmody laughed.
“We have all played in different bands before, so we’
re not new to the performing game. But this is the first time we’ll be playing together live,” Collins said.
When asked where the name Day 4 came from, none of the musicians could remember.
“Maybe it was because 1, 2 and 3 were taken,” Moldrich said. “Really it was just something that was said and it stuck.”
Day 4 will be playing all of their own original songs at the concert and are looking forward to progressing the band in the future.
“We’re really just concentrating on getting through this concert first, but hopefully down the line we will be looking at getting out an EP and writing some more originals,” McFeeters said.
“I think music has been a great outlet and a great hobby for a lot of people in Yass. There are a lot of musicians here.”
