"Least of all you is about ending a relationship", says singer Brent Waterworth.

Hailing from the sun-kissed shores of Orange County, California, Taken Days burst onto the music scene in 2017 as a promising melodic pop punk rock trio. Comprising Corey Glockner on bass and vocals, Brent Waterworth on guitar and vocals, and Landon Asbury on drums, the band has made significant strides in their journey, captivating audiences with their infectious melodies and high-energy performances. With two EP releases under their belt, Taken Days set their sights on bigger dreams, culminating in their debut full-length album, "Every Second...," which hit the airwaves in March 2021 under the esteemed Wiretap Records label.

"Every Second..." marked a turning point in Taken Days' career, thanks in no small part to their collaboration with the renowned producer Cameron Webb. The album quickly gained momentum, propelling the band into the limelight and attracting a larger and more devoted following. With a unique blend of melodic sensibilities and punk-rock edge, Taken Days had found their sweet spot, and they were here to stay.

Fast forward to early 2023, and Taken Days had once again teamed up with Cameron Webb, but this time, they were not in a hurry. Spending over a year meticulously crafting their songs through rehearsals, demos, and preproduction meetings, the band aimed to push their sonic boundaries. The result? An edgier and faster sound, while still retaining the signature mid-tempo, pop-punk influences, all topped off with their unmistakable big choruses and the harmonious interplay of their two singers.
