The first single taken from ‘The Deafening Silence’ is “In The Name Of God” and the videoclip can be seen below.
“We chose the song In The Name Of God as first video for the upcoming album, mainly for two reasons: the first one is about the lyrics; we would like to give our point of view on a highly current topic. The second one is about the music. In The Name Of God sounds awfully A Perfect Day.”, states the band.
Formed in 2011, A PERFECT DAY is the brainchild of Andrea Cantarelli, guitar player and co-founder of Italian heavy metal band LABYRINTH, and includes drummer Alessandro Bissa (LABYRINTH), singer Marco Baruffetti, and bass player Gigi Andreone (ODD DIMENSION).
Inspired by post-grunge, metal, rock and hard rock sounds, A PERFECT DAY is one of those bands in which melody plays a leading role, as well as class-A musicianship and classy arrangements.
The band released their debut album on Frontiers Records with talented musician Roberto Tiranti (LABYRINTH) on vocals and bass, and got immediate attention for being able to combine a very relaxed atmosphere with aggressive sounds in quite a unique way. Roberto left the band in 2014, but he was replaced by Marco Baruffetti, who has been able to bring his many talents and a very positive vibe in the APD camp.
The band states: “We are extremely excited about the release of this new album. We worked very hard for more than two years, trying to keep intact the stylistic stamp that marked our debut album whilst evolving in multiple directions. The songs are in-your-face, the melodies are immediately able to capture the listener’s attention and the extremely diverse sound will surely attract a wide and diverse audience.”
Produced in collaboration with Giovanni “Meniak” Nebbia (co-producer and sound engineer of LABYRINTH, VISION DIVINE, TIMO TOLKKI), described as “the fifth member of the band”, the album offers a feast of listening experiences. “We put the record together with a lot of confidence,” Cantarelli reveals, “and without the need to include commercially-driven songs. We did it for ourselves, something to be proud of ourselves for years to come. ‘The Deafening Silence‘ will take you on a ride that you will not forget!”.
