In the last four years, melodic rockband A Day's Work from Alkmaar, The Netherlands, has grown to become known in the Dutch clubscene with promising performances at Melkweg, Paradiso, the Parkpop Festival and great reviews. The band is characterised by its energetic live performance, strong vocals, powerful guitars and catchy melodic songs. The press has compared A Day’s Work to My Vitriol, Filtel, Marillion and U2.
In the last two years A Day's Work did more than 100 shows, in The Netherlands and abroad. They played at: Paradiso, Melkweg (Amsterdam), Parkpop (The Hague), Bevrijdingspop (Haarlem), Suikerrock (Be), Border Music Festival (Ger), KINK FM and 3FM Radio.
A Day's Work supported bands like Snow Patrol (UK), Cave In (USA), Sense Field (USA), Face Tomorrow (NL), the spirit that guides us (NL, DK, HK) and Racoon (NL). And were asked by Marillion (UK) to join them on their European Tour at the end of 2005.
‘Welcome home’, the first single from their new album ‘A Home In The Rain‘, was charted at national radio Kink FM’s “Outlaw 41” for six weeks. As did their previous single ‘Here I am’ from the EP ‘drowning in what I believe’.
At the end of this year A Day’s Work’s promising new full-length album ‘A Home In The Rain’ will hit the stores. This CD will established their name to an even greater extent. The record contains powerful rock songs, melodic journeys, songs on which you cannot sit still and a beautiful ballad featuring This Beautiful Mess singer Arjen van Wijk.
‘A Home In The Rain’ was recorded at the Dufry Studio, Amsterdam, by René de Vries, mixed by Martijn Groeneveld at Mailmen, Utrecht and mastered in Electric City by Alan Ward (Lou Reed, Zita Swoon)
A Day’s Work debuted with the album ‘Above and within’ in December 2002. Followed by the EP ‘drowning in what I believe’ in January 2004. Both albums received many great reviews.
The press about A Day’s Work live:
“More surprising was A Day’s Work’s performance. This band could also be rough, but the character of songs was more open; the sharp rhythms and the samples, scratches and sound-effects on vocals and guitars attended the melodic, emotional rock of these boys from Alkmaar, making them interesting from first song “Realm of the Moon” until the closing “ Silence Due.”
The many shows have made “A Day’s Work” grow and it has become a well oiled machine. From the first minute the band impresses with their emorock. Paul Glandorf’s clear and beautiful singing voice carries the whole show. The changes between the heavy and mellow songs bring this performance to a very high level.”
“A surprising, innovative and original sound (…) Carried by beautiful vocals and inventive effects on guitars and drums.”
The press about ‘A Home In The Rain’:
"Marillion was totally right choosing A Day's Work to open up before them no less than three times during the Not Quite Christmas Tour."

The press about ‘Drowning In What I Believe’:
“The four English language hits, are played with dedication and persuasion and the whole is recorded beautifully and clearly. Musically it makes me think of My Vitriol and Hell Is For Heroes.”
"A Day's Work have created their very own style with this album. The band writes very melodic songs whose are musically very good. Their experiments with various instruments gives the songs something "extra" which makes the band a little different."
”… ...listening to this CD gives the concept of emorock a wider meaning. We move from Coldplay to U2 and end with Racoon."
”…the songs have got exactly that, what makes rockbands nowadays break through to a bigger audience: inventive, but anything but complex or obscure guitar songs with a leading role for emotional muscular vocals..”
