How long has it been since A Day to Remember dropped a new song?
Well, if we’re being honest, we haven’t gotten a new tune from the five-piece since last year, but that changed this morning.
On Wednesday (April 15), the Florida-founded band shared another new track from their much anticipated seventh studio album, You’re Welcome. Titled “Mindreader, the barely three-minute track finds A Day to Remember leaning more towards their melodic sound rather than the screamy/singing combination that they’ve become known for.
In a press statement, frontman Jeremy McKinnon reveals that this song is actually one of his favorites from the forthcoming album and the first one that everyone in the band loved.
“This song was one of my personal favorites off the new album from the day it was written,” McKinnon explains.
“I wrote it with the incredibly talented Mike Green. Fun fact, it was the first song I’ve ever sent the guys in the band that was unanimously loved. This song was written to be a lighthearted take on people in relationships expecting their partners to read their minds.”
And there you have it. Mindreader.
To coincide with the song’s release, the band also unveiled the animated clip for the track. The video was directed by Awesome, Inc. (Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Squidbillies).
As it turns out, the group already had the music video done when the crazy pandemic struck.
“We’ve had this video done for some time now, and seeing as how our album isn’t out yet and the state of the world is keeping us off the road, we wanted to get some new material out there for our fans as soon as possible.”

“Mindreader” joins previously released tracks “Degenerates” and “Resentment” on A Day to Remember’s upcoming new album, You’re Welcome. While it still does not have a release date (we’re waiting, guys), the record will be released through the group’s new home of Fueled By Ramen.
