Four years on from the release of their previous album ('Cut And Move') comes the third studio album from this four-piece rock band. A lot has happened in those four years parting company with their record label and touring extensively with Daughtry of American Idol fame. Having recorded a new album independently they then signed to Razor and Tie Records to release 'Losing All'. This album doesn't break any new ground sticking very closely to the style of their previous two albums but if you liked them or are a fan of Nickelback or Daughtry then you'll definitely like this one. The influence of two years of touring is evident with three songs being co-writes with Chris Daughtry. 'Losing All' has all the elements of a good firework show with the loud bangs of firecrackers like opener "Light Em Up" and the heavy riffing "When I See You". Then there are the more delicate and mellow sections that get everyone going "oooh" and "aahh" with the thoughtful balladry of "Airplane" and closer "The Dark Hills". This variety and the heart and passion behind the message in the lyrics is what keeps you engaged throughout. Much of the album relates to lead singer Josh Brown and how God transformed his life when in rehab after a near fatal overdose. It is quite an amazing testimony and the emotion of it clearly shines through in the vocals and lyrics. Not long after the release of this album it was announced that Day Of Fire were going on an indefinite hiatus from touring and recording so it remains to be seen if this is the band's swansong.

Product Description

On Day of Fire’s power hard-rock opus, Losing All, the band explore the real meaning of rebirth.

As the frontman for Full Devil Jacket, Josh Brown toured with Creed and Nickelback but an overdose took that all away. After his conversion, rehab and dedicating his life to Christ, he formed Day of Fire.

The group made inroads in the hard rock world via their 2004 self-titled debut and 2006’s Cut & Move. Still, the big time eluded the band.

Enter Chris Daughtry. He opened for Day of Fire while starting out and returned the favour after striking it big by inviting the group on tour and co-writing three songs on Losing All.

The new album is chock full of emotional, sludgy rock, in the vein of Soundgarden, Skillet or Stone Temple Pilots, but still has a powerful message.

“We have something to say. It’s about (His) Love,” Brown says. “We all go through dark times, but we can go through them together – that’s what rock & roll is about to me.”
