(Toronto, Canada – May 29, 2013) Re-tooled, re-energized, revitalized. Age of Days has lit the fuse, blasting back onto the scene with a renewed spirit and vigor with the quartet’s newest album,radioactivity.

The new record and new lineup marks the beginning of a high-octane phase for the band and for the masses of fans that have been waiting since the band’s acclaimed 2008 album Hollywood Ending.

Age of Days began in Fredericton, New Brunswick and quickly established itself as one of the top rock bands on the east coast. Originally known as Age of Daze, the band released a self-titled EP in 2005, followed up with Hollywood Ending in 2007, which was later picked up by Universal Music in 2008, spawning a #1 song on Sirius Satellite radio in the US and winning a Radio Music Award for “Best New Rock Group” in Canada. The band also performed on TLC’s Orange County Choppers 10th Anniversary Special.

After touring relentlessly with the likes of Buckcherry, Papa Roach and Hinder, Tim Morrison and Matt McLaughlin relocated to Toronto, signed a new management deal in 2011 and a recording contract with Cordova Bay Records last year.

The first single from  radioactivity, “Bombs Away”, raced up the Canadian Active Rock charts into the Top 20. It’s an incendiary example of the kind of powerful, hook-laden, guitar crunching, powerhouse music that has made Age of Days a favourite of the modern rock crowd and an in-demand live act. And it follows in the tradition of the band’s massive hit from Hollywood Ending, “Afflicted”.

“On this album there is an overriding theme of persistence and overcoming obstacles and getting beyond certain things” says McLaughlin. “The songs are all unique, but they all deal with a consistent theme of inner strength and overcoming all the curves life can throw at you. Some of the songs have a pretty serious subject matter, like “Not Breathing”, which is about battling depression. And then you have “Bombs Away”, which is a tongue-in-cheek thing about a bad relationship. And we’ve got “Now or Never” which we wrote with Sal Costa (formerly of My Darkest Days, who also guests on the track with Hinder’s Cody Hanson), and it’s about seeing what’s going on in the world around you and how you’ve got to be able to take personal responsibility if things are going to change.”

Costa was one of three special guest co-writers on the album. McLaughlin and Morrison decided to take advantage some of the best rock songwriters and producers in the business to help create an album befitting the rebirth of Age of Days. A number of the songs were co-written with good friend and producer Justin Forsley, and three were co-written with Juno-award winning producer Brian Howes (Hinder, Puddle of Mudd, Daughtry, Nickelback).

“I think we have grown as musicians and as a band from writing with other people. When you collaborate with other people you try things you might not have necessarily done on your own”, Morrison states. “From a writing point of view, we are really proud of these new songs, and I think the album is a major step forward for us.”

“It’s a pretty rare thing that we have. This band is unique for us because we all believe in the music and the future of the band, everybody has the right approach. It’s a lot more fun and musically it works so well because these guys are amazing players and we’re all on the same page. They have added so much energy and quality playing to our live shows,” said McLaughlin.

radioactivity truly represents a validation of past success, and an affirmation that rock is still alive and well.

The album is available now in stores and online in Canada, and available outside of Canada exclusively through . The first single “Bombs Away” is available in the United States on iTunes.
