“ If you haven’t heard of this band before get ready because you will be soon. The songs found on Awaiting Takeoff sound like those of a well-seasoned band. All of the parts are tight and the song arrangements flow perfectly from track to track.” - Christian Rockers Online


“Hailing from America, the Day Of (http://www.thedayofband.com) have mastered the art of Christian alternative rock….When you have songs as catchy and radio-friendly as this, the paint-by-numbers aspects become quite appealing. Give the Day Of a shot; you won't regret it. They may even save your life.” - Whisperin and Hollerin


"The Christian alt scene has been around long enough now that a new generation of bands are appearing which were inspired by the first wave of self-proclaimed Jesus Freaks. Among this gradually overcrowding population is the Day Of, a tuneful foursome with a passion for Christ but also a keen sense of how to rock.” - Overground Underground


“Christian rockers The Day Of could easily compete with any of today's popular spiritual acts, whether it be secular crossover stars P.O.D. or praise & worship favorites Casting Crowns. The indie hipsters will scoff; however, fans of CCM radio stations or positive rock & roll in general will be rotating this in their iPods for quite a while. I certainly am.” - INK 19


“I don’t think the Day Of will have to await taking off for very long. This is certainly one of the most polished and nicely packaged unsigned Christian alternative groups today. I sincerely doubt that this band, if they decide to stick together for the long haul, will remain unknown for that much longer. Rockers like “It Should Have Been Me” and the Coldplay-like “You Don’t Have to Do This” present a group that is on the verge of busting out of the gates - and they know it. You can hear the confidence in Nick Hickman’s voice; his passion is infectious, making you hum nearly every chorus on this CD no matter what your spiritual background is.” - Post Alternative

The Youthful 5’some consisting of Nick Hickman (Vocals), RJ Helton (Rhythm Guitar), Greg Compton (Lead Guitar), Derrick White (Bass), and Matt Malone (Drums), are embarking on a journey to become revolutionaries in their respected Genres. “We want to be more than a cd, we want to work hard to improve what we do, and try to place our unique stamp on this world.”--Nick .

The Day Of has a vision of changing the world for the better, as well as reaching more than just a target audience. “Music is a reflection of self, if people know and understand what our music is about and who it is for, than they will truly understand who we are as a group of musicians. Our music is not just for a particular group of individuals, it is for all who are capable of hearing.” --RJ. The music presented by The Day Of addresses many topics relevant to all who listen. Ranging from addiction to sucide, to death and new life. Topics in which all are familiar with in some way. With a debut album under their belt, the band is now hard at work preparing themselves musically as well as spiritually for the road that lies ahead.
