Haste the Day is a Christian Metalcore band signed with Solid State Records from Indianapolis, Indiana, formed in 2001. Their band is named after a lyric in the hymn "It Is Well with My Soul". Even though the band's sound is metalcore, the band would consider themselves in more of rock and roll.
Vocalist Jimmy Ryan announced his departure from the band in late November of 2005 after accepting a job with their record label, Tooth & Nail Records. His last show was in the band's hometown of Indianapolis on December 30, 2005. The remaining members continued on for the European tour with The Juliana Theory, accompanied by Stephen Keech of Denver-based Christian band New Day Awakening. On February 23, 2006, Haste the Day stated in a press release that they had officially made Keech their new permanent singer.
Haste the Day's DVD was released as part of the special edition of Pressure the Hinges, their latest album. The DVD features all of the band's current music videos, including "The Closest Thing To Closure", "American Love", and "When Everything Falls". It includes live footage including Jimmy Ryan's last show, a show with Stephen Keech from The Truth Tour (w/ Bleeding Through, Between the Buried and Me, and Every Time I Die), and behind the scenes antics. The DVD was produced by Full Lock Media.
After releasing Pressure the Hinges and finishing up the "12 Days Of Christmas Tour" with Calico System, Heavy Heavy Low Low and Flee the Seen, the band began another tour with From Autumn to Ashes and Maylene and the Sons of Disaster. Haste the Day have finished work on their new album titled 'Dreamer', due for release on October 14th 2008.
