The Bad Day pride themselves on being a real band, four pieces of a puzzle, that fit together in a very unique and interesting way. As the songs on this album showcase, it's hard to fit them into a pigeonhole.


In fact that is something they strive to avoid, singer and bassist Adam Rigg says "All my favourite artists are cross-genre, I think that's the sign of a real musician or band if they can write a rock song one minute and then next write something more pop or jazz or blues or reggae. Why be limited as an artist? It's all music, it's all self expression. Enjoy it all."

From their inception in 2017 playing sweaty rock bars in London, to playing major festivals across the globe, The Bad Day show no signs of slowing down. They already have notable awards and nominations, international endorsement deals, major radio play, TV and magazine coverage. 


With 2024 set to be a big year given the release of "The Irish Goodbye" it's good times for The Bad Day.
