Crimson Day announces new drummer!

Juhani Ikonen has been announced to be the new official member of the band. The talented drummer joined Crimson Day first as a session drummer to record the drums for the upcoming third album. After the rehearsals and recordings went so well, the band welcomed Juhani as a new official member.

"I was up for new winds to blow in my musical career and Crimson Day appeared just in the spot. I got invited to play the drums for the upcoming album. Crimson Day turned out to be very nice and professional group of cool guys and our sessions went so well that I ended up being assigned to the band's official roster." says Juhani Ikonen.

Juhani has been playing in multiple bands before. The bands vocalist Milka and the new drummer have also been playing together several years ago."It's awesome to get to play with Juhani again, he was certainly the best choice for Crimson Day". The recordings of the third album are currently ongoing, with the drums already recorded. The band is super excited to get back on stage soon with some new songs and a new drummer!


The New Music is on the way

Crimson Day has finished recording two new singles with the new and vibrant line-up. The first single will be released soon with an official music video that was filmed in mid-May in western Finland. During the video filming weekend the band produced the most furious music video Crimson Day has ever made.

The band is super excited to share the new song and the soon-to-be-ready music video with its fans this summer! Follow us on social media for more news and clips behind the scenes of the music video production.


The New Era of Crimson Day

At the turn of the new decade, Crimson Day has some exciting news to announce! We are presenting a new line-up by welcoming our new guitarist Janne Rantanen and vocalist Milka Uusitalo to the Crimson Day family.

Janne has a long history of playing the guitar and he has been playing together with bassist Jesse in a group called “Varjoaine”. Milka has been known before as the lead vocalist of the French Iron Maiden tribute “Lyon Maiden” as well as the lead singer of Finnish hard rock band “Nuclear Nightshift”.

We are thrilled about the new era of the band, and some new Crimson Day material will be released before the summer. Two singles are ready to be recorded in the upcoming weeks and the band is planning to release the new songs with official music videos. Afterwards the band is planning to release the new album. We’re also aiming to perform on stages in Finland in the summer of 2020.

We are looking forward to share the new music and conquer the stages with the fresh line-up. Horns up and stay tuned!

We are working with Hiili Hiilesmaa, a legendary music producer, to bring forth the best material to our listeners. After pre-production and demoing we will start the production of our next full album, which we are hoping to release either later this year or early 2020, provided we come to an agreement with a label.

We promised you news, now we shall deliver, in Finnish from the link: To the Baltic Sea, and beyond! After a successful Finnish tour CRIMSON DAY, the metal quintet from Tampere, are teaming up with HERALD, an Estonian metal giant! The two bands hit the road together in November 2018 with The Tunnel Vision Tour which takes them on both sides of the Baltic Sea, from Tampere to Tartu! Crimson Day hits the stages of Estonia to spread their gospel of metal. The bands new album At The Mountains Of Madness, praised by critics and audiences alike, took the band all over Finland the past spring. Now it’s time to take on foreign audiences! During the tour the band will play songs from all their records: from the one which started it all, Crimson Day EP to their latest studio album. Herald, established in 2000, is a living legend in Estonian metal circles. The band holds a strong and loyal fan base in their home country with their three studio albums and dozens of live shows. Their latest album, Masin (2015), gained major success and was rewarded with the Best Metal Album-award by the Estonian music awards, as well as the “Single track of the year” -award from Linnaleh-magazine for their single “Kone”. Herald sings in Estonian, and is guaranteed to bring some exotic flair to their already top notch heavy metal.

AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS has been out for a couple of months now! If you haven’t already gotten your hands on the album, do it now! Also to help us out, go ahead and follow us on Instagram and Facebook (@crimson.day.band) and in Spotify.

The spring tour, nicknamed “At the Stages of Madness” is now finished! We had a great time and visited so many awesome places, met so many incredible people and drank so many beers! Thank you all who supported us by coming to our shows and buying our merchandise. We are now taking the summer off and returning to the stages in August. During the summer we hope to write a lot of great new material, start planning our next moves (European tour maybe?), and look for a label and a producer for the next album. The wheel keeps on turning…

To the point: We are currently looking for a booking agent to help us on our future tours and to take us to the next level. The person we are looking for is professional and motivated, and shows genuine interest to Crimson Day. Our goal is to go bigger, better and wider. In addition to Finnish venues, we want to expand our shows abroad, so the person we're looking for has experience in booking shows in Europe as well.

Crimson Day has been an active live band for its entire existence. In the last year we've achieved many milestones, such as our first foreign show in Berlin, and a full Finnish tour this winter/spring. Since our formation in 2013 we've played over 60 shows, half of those during the last two years. Until now we've booked our own shows with relatively good success, but to sell even more shows in different venues we need a person with the knowledge, time, resources and networks to make it happen. We strive to progress and growth as a band, and getting a professional booking agent to cooperate with us is a natural step in moving forward.

If interested, please contact us via Facebook or e-mail: crimsonday@crimsonday.com. Also, if you know someone who might be interested, please let them know.


With best regards, Crimson Day

Greetings, fellow Crimsonites!

After the warm and spectacular reception of Beasts of Prey, Crimson Day is once again ready to release brand new material! This brand new song is called My Last Rites. Born from the pencil of Ari, this new baby presents a heavier edge of Crimson Day, with a more thrashy vibe and heavier riffs than you might be used to. The video to this masterpiece was directed and co-written by a visual media visionary (and a good friend) Jyri Hiltunen, and filmed at Aris hometown Juupajoki. We also had the pleasure of “murdering” a talented young actor Heli Rantala with a dramatic effect. Go and check the video out, you can find the video right here on our website or in YouTube. The song will be available on Spotify and other streaming platforms shortly. About our future plans: For the rest of the year Crimson Day will be staying out of stages and focusing on writing new material. The spring of 2017 will be filled with as much gigs as we can handle, so be sure to stay tuned for our latest news right here on this website or from our Facebook-page. The next chance to see Crimson Day live will be at Bar15, Seinäjoki on 20.1.2017. News about our upcoming releases can be expected sometime during early 2017. So, listen to the song, see the video, stay tuned and most importantly: stay heavy.

With best regards, Crimson Day

During spring 2016, in midst of playing gigs, we hooked up with our old friend and producer Jussi Kulomaa to record two new songs, of which we now present the first one: Beasts of Prey. We are proud to present this new material with an awesome music video! So strap your leather pants on, take off your earplugs and put on your reading glasses, because this new video is now available in Youtube! The song is now also available in other digital platforms such as Spotify, Deezer today 8.8.2016. This marks a new leaf on Crimson Days career, and we will be doing gigs diligently during the following autumn, winter and spring. We are also looking for new partners on the music industry and venues to further promote our new material. Stay tuned for news of our incoming gigs and the second single we’ll be throwing your way this autumn!
