DAYS IN DECEMBER
The band was formed in December 2002 (hence the name) in North West London, England. Debut single “Comfort In Surrounding Space” was released on CD in 2003, and several tours ensued. After numerous lineup changes the band’s final incarnation included: Daniel Leigh (vocals), Phil Kinman (lead guitar), Robb Wybrow (guitar & vocals), Rob Turnbridge (bass guitar), and Frankie Torpey (drums).
Days in December completed tours alongside Funeral for a Friend (whose drummer Ryan Richards contributed vocals to the track “Last Chance Before The Storm”), Bullet For My Valentine, SikTh, Beloved, Dead Poetic, and Armor for Sleep, as well performances on the 2005 Taste Of Chaos UK tour, at the 2006 “Full Ponty” festival, and at the National Adventure Sports Show.
The band was acclaimed with “Single of the Week” in Kerrang magazine, for their E.P. “Countless Hours Making Waves”, and undertook an interview for Iron Maiden‘s “Bruce Dickinson Radio Show” on BBC Radio 6 Music.
A mini-album called “Deleted Scenes” was released on 11 September 2006 on Deck Cheese Records. This release secured a second successive “KKKK” review in Kerrang magazine.
Although the band split after their farewell tour in 2007 they did reform in 2014 for a one-off reunion show at Camden Barfly.
Days In December are no longer touring.
