Biography

2007 has already been a big year for Brisbane five-piece Another Day Down supporting US emo rockers, My Chemical Romance, throughout January and most recently Florida rock outfit New Found Glory in April, but things are only just beginning.

With two EP’s under their belt, the band will head in to the recording studio in July to record their third EP with producer Anton Hagop, the same producer that sat in the production seat for bands such as Silverchair, Missy Higgins, Powderfinger, The Dissociatives, COG and Natalie Imbruglia.

Another Day Down boast a sound that is a hybrid of bands like Senses Fail and early Taking Back Sunday, not to mention a line up that includes three vocalists – a recipe for success.

You can be sure that Eric Swavley (guitar/vocals), Phil Graham (guitar/vocals), Andrew Munnings (Guitar), Andrew Davidson (bass/vocals) and Matt Graham (drums), are genuine about their music. “We really plug our hearts into the music and we want to touch people’s lives when we’re onstage and through our albums,” explains guitarist and vocalist Phil.

In 2005, the band released their debut effort with ‘An Epilogue to Start the Story’, which successfully introduced the band to their home crowd of Brisbane, whilst building a steadily growing fan base. In July 2006, the band made waves with their follow up EP in the form of ‘In Pursuit Of The Crime’ with two singles successfully hitting the play lists of hundreds of radio stations around the country. Bass player, Andrew described the new recordings as “definitely more rock and a lot more energetic and maturity.”

Whilst their My Chemical Romance support tour was their biggest accolade to date, supporting big bands is something the band are all too familiar with having previously shared the stage with acts including Anberlin (USA), Antiskeptic (VIC), The Audition (USA), Emery (USA) and Motion City Soundtrack (USA). “We keep it really alive and we never do the same thing from one concert to the next… The vibe is always different,” says Phil.

Fans can expect “a whole lot of fun and energy with a kick ass stage show”, Eric says of a typical Another Day Down show. “Loads of energy, fun, head nodding, foot tapping and guitar slamming,” adds Phil.

Central to the heart of Another Day Down is the friendship and brotherhood structure of the band. “It’s vital that we stay tight and keep having fun. If we lose that we’ve lost something essential to the spirit of the band,” says Phil.

Lyrics

Good Morning

Written By: Another Day Down

V1
looking to my left and right
got my jacket in hand cause it's too hot tonight
my feet take me forward but my mind's left behind
stop still and take a second

so this is what it is like when you’re walking alone at the end of the night
so this is what it is like when you’re walking alone at the end of the night

Chorus
these are the thoughts that you never know
till you’re watching the world moving in slow mode
just slow down, just slow down
well stop be still it's ok.

V2
my strides move me through the night
check my watch again and it's a quarter to five
the air smokes when i breathe and you can see it with the first light of beam
and this has been a long night

Repeat Chorus x 2

Instrumental

Repeat Chorus

Ships Seas & Trechery

Written By: Another Day Down

V1
when the flags held high on the raging sea
moments like these seem so real, seem so real
as the wind blew hard on the day today
the sails stretched out as if to say
there’s gonna be treachery, i can feel the treachery
now sun bring it slow, bring it slow.

Chorus
pull the ladders
cut the ropes
can’t you see I’m a dreamer
I’ll sail into the moon

pull the ladders
cut the ropes
can’t you see I’m a dreamer
I’ll sail into the moon

V2
now the broadside cannons begin to fire
i can feel the hate from the other side
fists clinched and looking for a fight
and teeth together and slowly grind
but now the smoke has cleared
but now the smoke has cleared.

Chorus

Bridge
now the deep blue sea is not friend to me
and it just seems to swallow up
everything around me, everything around me
the deep blue sea is not friend to me
and it just seems to swallow up
everything around me, everything around me

Chorus
