In the spring of 2008 the current and final incarnation of Days Off Screen was formed. That summer the band played close to 30 shows rolling through several states and receiving a great deal of critical acclaim and media attention. In July, after signing up two months late, the band was chosen to play a slot on the Charlotte date of Warped tour. The summer before Days opened for Eleventy Seven (Sony/BMG) at Cornerstone Festival. The band entered the studio later that month and recorded “The My Earth and Me EP” which included the radio-friendly “Your Year on Mars” and “Andrew and Emily”. The band placed in several battle of the bands through out North and South Carolina during the late summer early fall months. In October Days was asked to be the entertainment for “Masquerade on Main,” a several hundred thousand dollar black tie affair. Earlier that month the band purchased a shuttle bus in preparation for touring in 09. In November the band continued to travel and began writing the next EP entitled “Forgive the Infrastructure”. The first week of December was spent at Habitat for Humanity with long time friends Philmont (EMI/Forefront). The band returned to the studio in late December to record the “Forgive the Infrastructure EP.” The EP included the quirky “In love with a Scientist” and the cinematic “Getaway”. Days spent the first two months of 2009 playing more shows, writing new tunes, and looking for business opportunities to take them to the next step.
