A Day To Remember To Self-Release Album; Still In Lawsuit With Victory Records

PropertyOfZack has received multiple reports from trusted sources that A Day To Remember will be self-releasing Common Courtesy, which comes out on October 8th. We have also been informed that A Day To Remember and Victory Records have yet to resolve their ongoing lawsuit.

The band announced the release date for Common Courtesy at 11:30 p.m. EST this past Friday. No record label — Victory Records or otherwise — made an official announcement or issued a press release regarding the album following the band’s release date confirmation.

With less than six weeks before Common Courtesy comes out, it looks as though A Day To Remember are timing the release of the album with their fall arena tour. Six days following the band’s original announcement, pre-orders or press releases from any label have still yet to be sent out. 

A Day To Remember funded the recording of Common Courtesy themselves and tracked the album in a studio constructed in frontman Jeremy McKinnon’s home with producer Andrew Wade. Based on the reports we’ve heard, it is because the band is self-releasing the album without Victory’s involvement.

We have reached out to Victory Records, but the label has declined to comment on the situation. Emails to A Day To Remember’s management at Fly South also went without response.

This is a developing story and we will update it with any new information as it comes in.
