The Scoop: Alternative rock outfit Saves The Day has announced in an exclusive letter to the backers of their recent album-funding Pledge Music campaign that they have officially signed to Equal Vision Records. In conjunction with the signing, the band has also revealed that they will be releasing their brand new self-titled full length album on September 17th. You can check out the exclusive letter from the band and the record’s artwork and track listing below.
EVR is fucking stoked to be working with us. That feeling is mutual. They were the first label to give Saves The Day a chance. They did that then because they liked the music; and that’s why they’re involved now. Second, they have the capacity to help us grow our beautiful community. Like us, they’re hardcore kids deep down. They know where we came from and how that shaped what we are now. Third, Max Bemis, Max Bemis. Max. Bemis. He’s a beautiful soul.

The Spin: Vocalist Chris Conley went on in a separate statement to go into detail on the signing and the history between the band and Equal Vision. You can check out what he had to say below.
It’s hard to believe it’s been 15 years since we put out the debut Saves The Day album on Equal Vision Records. Back then, I was just a kid, 17 years old and still in high school. Somehow, after our demo was rejected by all the other indie labels of the time, Steve from EVR called us up on a landline and asked if we’d like to make a record.
We were in the middle of rehearsing some new songs in a basement somewhere in New Jersey, and we dropped our instruments and jumped up and down, excited and amazed. No way to know that when we got the call it was the beginning of what would be an incredible journey through the world of music and beyond. In retrospect, I can see clearly that without Steve and Equal Vision Records, there would be no Saves The Day.
After all these years, I still hold holy gratitude in my heart for Steve and his faith in our music. Signing back to Equal Vision feels like coming home.
