BURDEN OF A DAY will stake their reputation on their ability to perform. Playing out with bands like MORTAL TREASON, CHASING VICTORY, STAPLE, ANAM CARA, and FOREVER CHANGED to name a few, they’ve exhibited an energy and a presence seldom paralleled by even their more accomplished peers. Hailing from Sarasota, Florida – a retired people’s town with a music scene as cold and unforgiving as the winters most move there to escape – they’ve managed to accumulate a following that keeps even their smallest shows well populated.
Formed in January of 2004, they’ve fast developed a natural chemistry, allowing them to constantly evolve as musicians, aiming beyond the simple, straight-forward songwriting that plagues a lot of bands in their genre. Genre is a bit of a tricky subject… When asked, they’d probably tell you post hardcore/screamo or something along those lines. Although watching them play, one might be prone to question the “Post” part of that description. These boys are hard. Heartfelt and melodic, but not afraid to throw in a breakdown or two… which is more than occasionally. Influences include the likes of THRICE, THE BLED, REFUSED, THURSDAY, BELOVED, ALL THAT REMAINS, and many more. While staying true to the music they love and grew up with, BURDEN OF A DAY is ready and able to progress forward and pass the message on to the next generation.
