New Years Day: Malevolence
Gothic five-piece score a ferocious new sound
Given their coiffeur, eyeliner and matching outfits, you might be forgiven for thinking New Years Day are all style over substance.
It’s true that neither their pop-punk debut My Dear or 2013’s more aggressive Victim To Villain quite lived up to the hype, but their third album is here to challenge any misconceptions. From the opening bars of lead track *Kill Or **Be Killed*, it’s clear that NYD have sharpened their kohl pencils, touched up their roots and revamped themselves in every way.
