Get your hardcore/screamo voices ready because A Day to Remember is back. On Friday (June 14), the Florida-founded band returned with their first new song in three years. Joining forces with DJ/producer Marshmellow, the five-piece dropped not only the audio but also the music video for “Rescue Me.”
The four-minute, theatrical clip begins with the band and Marshmello stranded on a beach after a massive storm isolates them. Somehow, all their instruments and Marshmello’s iconic headpiece manage to survive without any immediate damage. The viewer watches as the six of them try to survive on the island. We watch as they make arrows to hunt, put a message in a bottle, and yes, there’s an even a “Castaway” reference with Marshmello creating his own Wilson.
It’s a poppier, EDM version of the band fans have grown to love since their inception in 2003.
Listen to “Rescue Me” above.
“Rescue Me” is available for purchase here.
The new collaboration comes as the band is in the middle of their Raisin’ Hell in the Heartland tour. At the time of publication, 11 out of the 16 shows were classified as sold out. Tonight, the quintet will take over the Fillmore in New Orleans. The Raisin’ Hell in the Heartland tour concludes at the end of the month on June 28 at the Strand Theatre in Providence, Rhode Island.
Last month, the band announced the lineup for their annual Self Help Festival. The yearly event will take over the Palladium Outdoors in Worcester, Massachusetts on Sept. 7 and the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino on Oct. 12.
A Day to Remember’s last studio album was 2016’s Bad Vibrations.
