Saves The Day returned today with “Kerouac & Cassady” - the second single from their highly-anticipated new album 9. “Kerouac & Cassady” is the perfect soundtrack to a Saturday night drive. Each lyric is a callback to a memory from the band’s two decades accumulating memories on tour and even the song’s title is a nod to the beatnik classic On The Road.
“Kerouac & Cassady” is a propulsive rock anthem that triggers the sort of adrenaline rush that convinces the listener that anything is possible when they walk out their door on a Saturday night. You can listen to the record now on YouTube, Spotify or most of your favorite other streaming sites. Along with the release of “Kerouac & Cassady”, Saves The Day also are excited to announce the second leg of their North American tour running Feb 15 through March 8.
Saves The Day will be hitting the road in support of 9 this November. They are joined on this run by Kevin Devine and An Horse on all dates (unless otherwise noted). The band will be back on the road at the top of the year with support from Remo Drive and Mighty. All tickets are available now from savestheday.com.
Saves The Day will be releasing 9, their first new album in five years, on October 26th via seminal rock label Equal Vision Records. 9 will be Saves The Day’s ninth studio record and contains nine songs that, when listened to together, tells the story of the band from the perspective of its founder, Chris Conley. The album offers this first ever autobiographical look into the band’s history in a way that is as exhaustive as it is poetic and makes the listener a part of the songwriting process. As Conley puts it “This album is the story of Saves The Day and my own personal journey through life, which all unfolded as my relationship with music progressed”.
On the surface, 9 chronicles the epic story of a group of kids from New Jersey who realized their dream and became an international sensation. On a deeper level, it shows how Conley “woke up” and became aware of his own consciousness through his relationship with music and the unbelievable adventures it has inspired since he formed the act in 1997.
9 was produced by Arun Bali and Saves The Day. Bali mixed and engineered the record, as well. You can preorder 9 today and look for its official release on October 26th.
