DAMNATIONS DAY released their debut album, Invisible, The Dead, through Nightmare Records in 2013 to amazing reviews. Since the record’s release, the band has been working hard, supporting such bands as Nightwish, Sybreed, Psycroptic, Black Majesty, Widow, Teramaze, Pegazus, Vanishing Point, King Parrot, Soilwork, Battle Beast, Salamandra, Circle II Circle, and Helloween, as well as headlining shows and major metal festivals. In September of 2014 they joined Accept on the European leg of their Blind Rage Tour. This amazing opportunity allowed DAMNATIONS DAY to expose themselves to nearly thirty sold-out shows in front of an average of two-thousand people a night in legendary venues across Europe. Playing on the bigger stage has refined the direction of their music combining the maturity and knowledge gained through the experiences of touring and time. Remaining determined as ever to bring mature, professional, and honest music that is not directly covered by just one genre as well as bringing an energetic and powerful atmosphere to their live performance, the band spent 2015 writing, and then spent all of 2016 recording, what has now become the second DAMNATIONS DAY album, A World Awakens.
