Biography

Daylight Burning consists of 4 friends with a passion for hard rock and metal. While Daylight Burning is a new band, the members have played countless shows in venues up and down the east coast in previous bands. "This has lead to a more refined approach with the song writing process and the live show" states guitarist Peyton Dowdy. "We are a bit older and more experienced as musicians now and we feel like it shows in the new music."

The band mixes aggressive riffs and a pounding rhythm section with strong melodies and vocal harmonies. "This is the first band I have been in that we spend a lot of time working on the little details that put songs over the top.It makes the writing process that much more exciting."says vocalist Rick Johnson. The lyrical content is meaningful to the band but Johnson believes it is important to allow the listener to interpret their own meanings. "The song Swear is about losing someone close to you and keeping their memory alive after they are gone." says Johnson, "However I can see where it could have a different meaning to other people. That is what is great about music. People can take what they want from it and use it to relate to their own lives."

Armed with a dynamic sound and an exciting stage presence Daylight Burning is taking aim at the Richmond, Virginia scene. The band is recording their debut EP which will be released in late spring/early summer of 2012.

Lyrics

Our Own Way

Written By: Daylight Burning

I made my own way
I've lived and learned
and I did it all without you

was terrified but I
I still survived and I
Think you should know

that all along
you were never there
and all along
you were just too far

"I'll raise my hand to you
and I'll scream out your name
I'll raise my hand to you
and I'll scream out your name... your name"

with lessons learned, these bridges burned
we learned to find our own way
we persevered and pushed through the years
and I think you should know

that all along
you were never there
and all along
you were just too far

"I'll raise my hand to you
and I'll scream out your name
I'll raise my hand to you
and I'll scream out your name... your name"
