Q&A: Days to Come
“Being in a band is one of the most fulfilling and frustrating things I’ve ever been a part of. When it’s good, it’s really good. When it’s difficult, it can be a challenge.”
Georgia based rock band Days to Come are making their way into the scene with their two powerhouse singles released this year.
The trio is made up of Justin Goodson (vocals/guitar) Brandon Rix (guitar and Jalen Hall (drums.) Their blend of pop-styled vocals with hard hitting rock styled instrumentals provides a unique sound.
“I absolutely love music,” explains Goodson. “I love how it’s subjective and different. There are so many great genres that so many people enjoy. Musically, I’m influenced by bands like Alter Bridge, Nothing More, and Shinedown. Vocally, I’m influenced by a bunch of 80’s pop artists.”
The band came together in 2018 after Hall joined Rix and Goodson.
“I met Brandon in 2013 and Jalen joined us in 2018,” says Goodson. “We’ve had a few lineup changes over the years, but we’re really comfortable with the team we currently have.”
The band works cohesively together to create new work while still maintaining a balance in their personal lives,
“We’ve spent a lot of time developing our relationships and learning to prioritize our lives so the band has room to breathe without becoming the only thing that ‘we are,” says Goodson. “Being in a band is one of the most fulfilling and frustrating things I’ve ever been a part of. When it’s good, it’s really good. When it’s difficult, it can be a challenge.”
This summer, the band released a lyric video for their most recent single, “Wolves.”
“I like to believe more thought goes into the songs we write,” says Rix. “At the start, we sorta barbarically mushed song ideas together just to have content. Now, it takes us a while to complete a song because more effort goes into it.”
Rix notes that the single “Siren” is one that resonates closely to him.
“I feel more connected to that song because I remember crafting to perfection the solo for so long,” Rix says.
“Even though Wolves is much more radio friendly in its simplicity,” says Hall. I feel that we are always evolving and changing our vision with what we want from our music. So, trying to predict what we’ll be doing next year is a tricky thing.”
Hall notes that he wants fans to know that hard work will pay off.
“No matter how many obstacles you face, as long as you continue to pursue your goals and keep working hard, nothing will hold you down,” he encourages.
At the end of this month, Days to Come will be opening up for female rock legend Lacey Sturm. Tickets can be purchased here.
