Artist To Watch: A Day Without Love

Former member of State In the Real, Brian Walker, is the singer of a band called A Day Without Love. Hailing from Philly and have recorded a split record with Uncle/Father Oscar (Represented by Sorry Girl Records). A Day Without Love  plan on digitally releasing their record soon. If you want to know more about their album and the members of A Day Without Love, here is a little more information: Partnering up with emo rock band, Uncle/Father Oscar (Sorry Girls Records), A Day Without Love will be releasing a split entitled, A Day Without Oscar on August 19, 2014. A Day Without Love met the band in the winter of 2013 at the former South Philly house venue, Freedom 35. The alternative rock outfit was impressed by Uncle/Father Oscar’s twinkly guitar leads and impressive harmonies. While forming a bond throughout 2014, both bands knew it was time to help each other with the recording and release of a split.


Using traditional DIY methods the record was recorded and mastered by members in both bands. Lead guitarist Jake Detwiler (American Dinosaur, When Ships Collide, and Little War Twins) tracked and mixed all four songs at Fresh Produce Studios and the record was mastered by Tenor Guitarist Tom Conran (Pelican Audio) in Philadelphia.


With complimentary and differing songwriting styles, any listener of alternative, punk, or emo would be bound to enjoy this split. With hopes to play in mini tour circuits and college shows in the tri state area, you can look forward to seeing Uncle/Father Oscar and A Day Without Love working their way to become known in the tri state independent music scene.
