EXCLUSIVE: Dayseeker put the passion back into post-hardcore on ‘Origin’ full-album stream

On their new album, Origin, Orange County, California’s Dayseeker play a type of post-hardcore that’s brutal when it needs to be but reigns itself in frequently to allow for beautiful melodic passages that shine a light on the band’s lyrics, which are a cut above the rest of the Warped Tour-centric pack. There’s a simple explanation for that, says frontman Rory Rodriguez—he’s just being honest. The singer comments:

“With this album, we’ve really matured so much as people and as a group, and we feel like the writing translates that very well. Lyrically, I’ve tried to tackle some subjects that I’m hoping can be very easy to relate to for the common person. Our hope is to help the listener through any hardships they may be going through and help them reach that light off in the distance.”

Origin comes out April 21 on InVogue Records and can be pre-ordered physically and digitally.

The band have a handful of shows on the horizon with many more to come; dates:

Apr 17 Soma San Diego, CA
Apr 27 Black Sheep Colorado Springs, CO
Apr 29 The Fallout Co-Op Minneapolis, MN
May 03 Iggy’s Toledo, OH
