The Daydream District will release their new single, ‘Hail Mary Martyrs’, on 6th December, through Golden Robot Records.
The band from Raleigh, North Carolina in the USA is equal parts hard and pop-rock, with a twist of lemon, and the brainchild of husband-and-wife duo Scott and Jeni Ivey.
With the addition of Danny Sullivan on drums and Lou Tufillaro IV on bass ‘Hail Mary Martyrs’ flexes a muscle previously unseen in the band. The confident and hard-hitting rock track shows the band fully in their element, blending 90s rock idiosyncrasies with modern production.
Lyrically, ‘Hail Mary Martyrs’ is said to illustrate the throes of a 21st century existential crisis that someone like Fydor Dostoevsky might feel at home reading!

The band released its debut album, God Damned The Scatterbrain, in April 2021. It has been described by fans as “an album that flows with purpose and poise, and is filled with vibrant melodies – reminiscent of REM.”
In August 2021, The Daydream District then signed with Golden Robot Records for its upcoming releases, with a cover of Eels’ ‘Novocaine For The Soul‘ being their first single, and still available here.
The Daydream District blend esoteric, neurotic lyrics with catchy sing-along choruses, with a keen pop sensibility peppered with revivalist 90s rock stylings.
