Solid State Records’ Haste the Day has successfully carved their niche market with more than 230,000 album sales statewide, killer touring in 2008-09 and the release of their fourth studio album last fall, “Dreamer.” Now the hardcore band from Indiana is hitting the road with the Napalm & Noise Tour beginning next Thursday, Nov. 20th in Illinois (dates/markets below) with All That Remains, The Devil Wars Prada and Story of the Year.


The road has become a second home for Haste the Day as last October they were direct support for Norma Jean’s tour followed by being a part of  the sold out Saints & Sinners tour (Hollywood Undead, Senses Fail, Haste the Day, Brokencyde).  The band also went international this year headlining in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Columbia, and Panama. Haste the Day also headlined the domestic Scream the Prayer tour this year.  In December, the band will go abroad once again to Germany for the Christmas Rock Night festival.

Haste the Day is partnering with Macbeth Footwear for a prize pack for fans on the Napalm & Noise tour.  The band & Macbeth will be giving away a goodie bag of gear to three lucky fans.  Each winner will receive a new pair of Macbeth shoes, stickers, t-shirt, signed Haste the Day t-shirt and autographed copy of “Dreamer.”  To enter fans must attend a tour date, visit the band at their merch table and take a photo with the band.  Fans then go to the band’s Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/hastetheday) for instructions on where to send the photo.

After the Napalm & Noise Tour, the band will enter the studio to being recording their fifth studio project on Solid State Records in January 2010.  The new album will release  in the summer of next year.  More details to follow.

Haste the Day is available for interviews and tour reviews are available upon request and approval.  Contact: Lori Mahon for media inquires.  For more information and tour locations visit the band’s MySpace (http://www.myspace.com/hastetheday).

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
