Days of the New at McGuffey’s House of Rock
By Matt Clevenger
Days of the New will bring their unique style of acoustic guitar-driven metal to McGuffy’s House of Rock Saturday, November 27, offering fans a rare live appearance with opening acts Jeremy Neal, Desalitt and Dying to Meet You.
Formed by singer/songwriter Travis Meeks in Louisville, Ky., Days of the New originally rose to fame with the hits “Shelf in the Room” and “Touch, Peel and Stand,” selling 1.5 million copies of their self-titled debut album and touring with both Metallica and Jerry Cantrell. Three band members left to form the alternative rock group Tantric in 1999 and Meeks, who sought treatment for methamphetamine addiction on the A&E show Intervention, has gone on to release three more successful albums with a re-formed Days of the New lineup.
Tickets for Saturday’s show at McGuffy’s are $12 in advance or $15 the day of the show. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m. More information can be found online at HYPERLINK “http://www.mcguffys.net” www.mcguffys.net or HYPERLINK “http://www.myspace.com/daysofthenew” www.myspace.com/daysofthenew.
