NEW YEARS DAY release video for "Disgust Me"

Hard rock band New Years Day have released an ominous music video for their single "Disgust Me". In the dark coming-of-age visual narrative, an all-red haired Ash Costello is summoned to an abandoned house where she meets her alter ego, a gothic goddess who conjures the collide of both worlds. 


"'Disgust Me' is about seeing the side of someone that they tend to hide. Whether it be because they have deemed it undesirable or unattractive for whatever reason or out of fear of being judged as less than because of the dark sides they possess. 'Disgust Me' is asking the listener to not be afraid to show these parts because it just may bring you relief instead of sorrow," comments Costello. "I am asked a lot why I decided to dye my hair half red and half black, so I saw the 'Disgust Me' music video as an opportunity to give that a story of its own. The all-black-haired girl calling upon the dark spirits to show themselves, and the all-red-haired girl who's been lost alone in the wilderness, coming together to make one whole person. To me it felt symbolic, like the two sides of me can both shine, the light and the dark."

ABOUT NEW YEARS DAY
Formed in Orange County, Calif. by Ashley Costello, New Years Day shook the scene with their
Century Media debut, Victim to Villain, in 2013 featuring their breakout single "Angel Eyes."The five-piece later cemented their place in the heavy music landscape with their Epidemic EP and critically-acclaimed Malevolence full-length in 2015, clocking more than 20 million views on YouTube. The band has since become the most visually-captivating group in modern rock, playing for millions of fans around the world, sharing the stage with Ozzy Osbourne, Nine Inch Nails and Five Finger Death Punch while also headlining the longest-running touring festival in 2017. As new challenges and new worlds beckon, the band released Diary of a Creep in January to pay tribute to the artists who shaped them thus far - stream their cover of Garbage's "Only Happy When It Rains ft. Lzzy Hale" now.
