“When we recorded the song ‘Shut Up’ I knew right then and there, on that day, straight away, what I wanted to do if we were ever to make a music video for it. It came to me immediately. So when the time came and ‘Shut Up’ was chosen for a music video, I was thrilled because it meant that I’d get to make my vision come to life, which was to recreate one of my favorite horror movies of all time, ‘American Psycho'”, states New Years Day frontwoman Ash Costello about the music video.
“Shut Up”, the lead single off of the band’s newest full-length album, Unbreakable, is celebrating five weeks on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart and five weeks on the
Active Rock Chart and is currently #21 on both charts. The track just surpassed
1.26 million total worldwide streams and has been featured on “Rock Hard“, “Heavy Queens“, “New Metal Tracks“, “New Noise“, and “Fierce Femmes” playlists, along with Apple Music’s Breaking Hard Rock” playlist and Amazon Music’s “Rock Scene“, “Brand New Music“, and “Fresh Hard Rock” playlists. Additionally, the band’s debut track, “Skeletons“, has over 3.5 million streams and “Come For Me” saw New Years Day cross over into the mainstream with their first “New Music Friday” Spotify placement.
Unbreakable, produced by Mitchell Marlow (All That Remains, In This Moment) and Scott Stevens (Halestorm, Shinedown & American Authors), came out this past Friday, April 26th via RED MUSIC.
