Frontiers Records released A PERFECT DAY‘s self-titled debut album on November 19th in North America. The album will be out in Europe tomorrow, November 23rd. The band’s new video is now available. Watch ‘Silent Cry’ below:
The concept of A Perfect Day came about when Andrea Cantarelli – guitarist and co-founding member of the Italian heavy metal band LABYRINTH – presented the new songs and riffs he was working on to his bandmate Roberto Tiranti. The musical direction was evidently different from what they have been developing on Labyrinth’s recent releases, more in line with hard rock rather than power metal.
Roberto immediately loved the music that Andrea played him and started to work on songs and melodies which during 2011 and 2012 brought life to the debut album which finally sees the light of day now on Frontiers Records.
“Labyrinth is my band, but now it is not enough” says Cantarelli. “APD is what I need today. I need another band, a real band in order to express my creative juices. Musically speaking we are now in Hard Rock territory, however I have tried to give the sound a more dynamic and modern edge, not far away from acts like ALTER BRIDGE or STONE SOUR.”
But melody still plays a leading role in A Perfect Day music. Although, on the one hand, melodies are sometimes very relaxed, they are in contrast, with the wall of sound created by the heavy guitar riffing.
A Perfect Day lineup is completed with Alessandro Bissa (Labyrinth, VISION DIVINE) on drums.
