Bio

Days of Red started out as a side project stemming from a couple of local bands in the Springfield, MO area. Rick Delloma (guitar) and Mike Price (drums), from Geode and Eleven57, were looking to try something new. After working with several other musicians Rick happened to come across Justin (bass), a newcomer from the Chicagoland area, at a small bar in downtown Springfield. Immediately they seemed to connect and the trio set about looking for a front man to lead the already well rehearsed group.

"We were really looking for someone to bring a more modern sound to our hard rock riffs," said Rick. "It's tough to find somebody when you're basically searching blindly. None of us knew anybody personally that would really fit what we needed".

The seasoned band needed a younger voice to bring the style and attitude needed to develop the musical hook they were looking for. The trio started asking friends about singers and posted signs in local hangouts and colleges. After a three-month search, and several auditions, the band brought in Matt Gore, an OTC student from Benton, Arkansas.

Now came the task of writing new songs.

"We really couldn't use our old stuff, because Matt's vocal style changed the way we played so much that the old songs just didn't fit," explains Mike.

So they scrapped their first tentative tracks for songs with a gripping, hard groove and warm, yet intense, vocals. Then top it off with some vicious guitar riffs to ice the cake. The group writes all of their songs as a unit, each person building off each others ideas and contributing parts for every song.

"We try to write about things that people can relate to emotionally in real life." says Matt. "We want people to be able to listen to our music and take something from it."
