      Bio

      The Early Years

      Days of the New is a post-grunge rock band from Charlestown, Indiana. The band formed around 1995 and moved to Louisville, Kentucky. The band consists of Vocalist/Guitarist/Songwriter, Travis Meeks and a variety of supporting musicians. They are best known for the hit singles "Touch, Peel & Stand" and "The Down Town", both from their self-titled debut album.




      Days of the New I

      The first Days of the New album, titled "Days of the New", but frequently called "Orange", was released in 1997. It has currently sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide. Three songs from this album were hits: "Touch, Peel & Stand", "The Down Town" and "Shelf in the Room". "Touch, Peel & Stand" was number one modern rock track on Billboard's Rock Chart for a record 17 weeks. "The Down Town" and "Shelf in the Room" were both top 40 hits as well.







      Shortly after releasing the album, the band went on tour with Metallica and Jerry Cantrell in 1998. Soon after concluding the tour, however, the band split up. Todd Whitener, Matt Taul and Jesse Vest would go on to form Tantric while Meeks formed a new band under the Days of the New moniker.




      Days of the New II

      Just one year after the original band's breakup, Meeks had assembled a new Days of the New and recorded a second album. Titled "Days of the New II" and is also known as Green. This album was released in 1999 and had a variety of different styles of music. Many of the album's songs contained intros and codas to seamlessly carry into the next song. This album includes a full orchestra as well as backing vocals from The Pussycat Dolls front woman, Nicole Scherzinger.







      The album sold around 600,000 copies. "Enemy," was a major hit and the 2nd single, "Weapon and the Wound", failed to match its predecessor.




      Days of the New III

      After touring to support the band's second album, Meeks returned to the studio with a new band. Still using the Days of the New name, the third album incorporated aspects of the previous two; much of the energy from the first album had returned, combined with orchestral interludes similar to the second album.







      In keeping with the previous albums' names, the third album is called "Days of the New III", or Red.




      Today

      Travis Meeks has gone on to many individual projects; he contributed to the Doors tribute album Stoned Immaculate: The Music of the Doors as lead vocalist on a cover of "The End". After appearing on an episode of A&E's Intervention, where his family and friends convinced him to seek help for his addiction to crystal meth. Meeks entered rehab and is now sober.
