IVM founder Brandon Jones says, “Indie Vision Music celebrates its 20th anniversary on July 4th and what better way to celebrate than with brand new music from Slow Coming Day, a classic band that really inspired me as a person and gave me hope as someone working in the industry. Some of my very earliest shows I put together featured this band and I caught them live on many occasions. The band would eventually sign with Tooth & Nail Records, releasing a much loved “classic” emo release titled “Farewell to the Familiar” in 2003.
I have followed Orion Walsh’s work both as a songwriter in his band, Slow Coming Day, and as a solo artist under his own name, for nearly 2 decades now. This release truthfully brings out the best elements in Slow Coming Day music while also incorporating a somber, inviting aesthetic.
If you dug last year’s comeback release, “1000 Years (Like a Day)” with songs like “First Sight” and “Shoes, Ships, and Sealing Wax”, or if you’ve enjoyed Orion’s solo material, or band’s like The Postal Service, Brandtson, Jimmy Eat World, American Football, and Starflyer 59, you’re going to love this.
The release will be available in Digital format and hopefully tape, vinyl. This new effort will see the band exploring new territory while fully embracing a familiar landscape of carefully thought out melodies and remarkable songwriting.
This new effort will prove once again why good music should never go unnoticed.”
Slow Coming Day is an American indie rock band consisting of Orion Walsh (vocals, guitar), Dave Stoots (bass), and Matt Bailey (drums). Previously the group released it’s first independent EP “A Part of Me Died” in 2002, followed by a full length “Farewell to the Familiar” on Tooth and Nail Records in 2003, and “1000 Years (Like a Day)” in 2019. The group toured & played with many great bands such as Mae, Copeland, Emery, Further Seems Forever, Juliana Theory, Twothirtyeight, Spitalfield, As Tall As Lions, Gatsby’s American Dream, Waking Ashland, Mewithoutyou, Anberlin, Brandtson, and Watashi Wa to name a few. The band has also been featured on many different compilations over the years the most notorious being Deep Elm Record’s Emo Diaries Chapter 8. Many individuals in the past have asked where the band name comes from. The truth is that Matt, the drummer, thought of the name. The idea behind Slow Coming Day can be summed up by reading 2 Peter chapter 3. “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
