Over the last two years Days N Daze have been headlining punk and folk-punk festivals across Europe and America, relentlessly touring with acts such as; Leftover Crack, Goddamn Gallows and Bridge City Sinners.
On their first ever trip to Australia they'll perform nine shows in nine cities, including the third annual HOBOFOPO – 6-9th December, and Brisane Punkfest’s annual Xmas bash on Sat 15th December, with a bunch of shows in between taking in major cities.
Whitney Flynn and Jesse Sendejas formed Days N Daze as a duo in 2008. Presently, the band includes bassist Geoff Bell and percussionist Meagan Melancon. They have released seven albums over ten years, including Rogue Taxidermy and Crustfall, both being staples of modern folk-punk fans.
Described as "riot folk" and "thrashgrass" their song themes run the gamut from the social (gang violence, terrorism, annihilation of the environment for corporate pocket-lining, the mundane and unavoidable anxieties of modern life) to the recreational (how the fuck did we end up in jail?).
Days N Daze embraces the D.I.Y. ethic recording, packaging and promoting its music independently. They are best known for is their live shows, which are energetic to the point of audience members stripping off clothes in ecstatic, music-induced jubilation (or, too much PBR).
