Sounds like: Alternative Metal
From: Germany

1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name "Heartless Day" and is there any meaning behind it?

We started 2015 as an Metal/Rock-Cover Band. The first singer came up with name, since everybody’s having a bad or "heartless" day sometimes. With some changes in members we started to write and record our own selfmade songs in 2017. We played a lot of shows in Germany and then went in a studio in Graz, Austria to record our first full album which we released in October 2019. Also we've played some shows as part of an release-tour in Germany, Austria and also Sweden. Two of our former members left the band because of some personal issues. Following that we released two singles called "Breaking the Silence“ and "DmGd & ScRrd" this year.

2. What do you want people to take away from your music?

We want to connect with people listening to our music with topics that everybody at some point has to deal with and let them know, that they’re not alone.

3. How would you describe your sound to the average listener?

We like to describe our music as catchy and pushing, hard but still melodic.

4. Who are three bands you’d like to tour with?

A Day to Remember, LVNDMARKS, Of Mice and Men

5. How has Covid affected what you do?

Covid stopped us from touring and developing relationships with people we might’ve met. We might’ve been more present if it wouldn’t be for covid.

6. What’s your take on the current state of Alternative Metal?

There are alot of very good bands who we look up to and we try to get inspired by the stuff they do and blend it in with our own style.

7. What's the current music scene like there in Germany?

The scene is slowly getting back to where they were pre-covid. But it’s still not easy to fill a venue if you’re not a world wide known band.

8. What’s your take on the royalties that streaming services pay out to artists?

I mean, every cent you get is a plus. But it’s in no relation to the cost we’re putting in our content. But we’re still thankful for every single one who listens to our music.

9. What’s next for Heartless Day?

We’re already planning on putting together a EP with completely new songs. That means that we’re going to go to a studio very soon to record, mix and master.

10. Any shoutouts?

Yes! Shout out to our filmer Rudi Dengler, who filmed and edited all our music videos since day one!
