Biography » My ADTR Story
I started listening to ADTR in March. At the time I only had one song on my iPod: Have Faith in Me. I wasn't really into them then, but still really loved that song. I found them through Tumblr, since a lot of the people I followed were into them. One night I decided I wanted to download more music. After asking for recommendations on Tumblr, around 15 people told me to look into A Day to Remember. I already had one song that I loved, so why not get another? I downloaded You Be Tails, I'll Be Sonic, and though I wasn't fond of the scream at the beginning at first, it was the chorus that grew on me. This song was on repeat on my iPod for an entire week; it was all I listened to. Eventually the scream grew on me, and I decided to download more from ADTR.
I ended up downloading almost the entire What Separates Me From You album, and tons of songs from the other 3 albums. Each and every song has something in it that makes me love it more than any song I've ever heard from another band. Long story short: I fell in love. Even now they're all I listen to. My play counts for each song I own are no less than 300 plays, and some have even passed 1,000.
But there's more to that than just a "I fell in love with them." I started listening to them when I was going through a rough time. I was depressed all the time, pushing away all my friends, and yelling at my parents for even the smallest things because my emotions were so strained. When I first listened to You Be Tails, I'll Be Sonic everything seemed to just melt away, and it was just me and the music; all my thoughts were gone, and I wasn't forced to think about things that made me so angry and sad. Some days I was suicidal: I would be walking down a street and see a car coming, and wonder if jumping in front of it just might kill me, or just hurt me really bad. But they saved me, and they're still saving me. Their music is what keeps me going. I have bad days, and I just turn them on really high and lay there with my eyes closed, not thinking about anything but the lyrics.
This band means the world to me. I've never been to one of their shows, never met the members, but it doesn't matter because it doesn't change how much they mean to me. I hope one day to meet them all, but for now I'm completely happy to just listen to their music and drown out the world in it.
