Back in 2011 A Day To Remember kicked off their ‘What Seperates Me From You’ campaign with the brilliantly bludgeoning ‘All I Want’. The accompanying video featured a LOT of very familiar faces. Let’s have a proper look and see who we can find doing their best lip syncs.
So first things first, here’s the video in all of its glory.
Still so great right? NOW here is a breakdown of all of those guest appearances.
CRIME IN STEREO
A band who have come and gone much like the seasons, Crime In Stereo toured with A Day To Remember when they both supported New Found Glory on the Easycore tour back in 2008.
A man who needs no introduction in the ADTR universe. Tom Denney played guitar with the band up till 09’s ‘Homesick’ where he decided to take some time away to focus on his family and becoming a producer. He was replaced by Four Letter Lie’s Kevin Skaff. Look there he is!
These pop-punkers became close friends with ADTR when they toured together back in 2010 on a line-up that also included Silverstein, August Burns Red, Go Radio and Enter Shikari. Bet you’re salivating at the thought of that eh?
BRING ME THE HORIZON
Absolute worldbeating juggernauts in their own right these days, back in 2011 both BMTH and ADTR were killing the game on the same path but with very different sounds. Look at them bouncing!
Legends of the scene and pioneers of a sound that continues to thrive to this day, of course they would pop up having a sing along in this lot’s video.
Parkway Drive and A Day To Remember have been in near perfect parallel for most of their times as bands. By the time this video dropped they were both clear superstars of the scene. Mosh.
THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA
Look at this lot having a good old croon. Look at their sharp haircuts and doo-wop attitudes. You’d never think that they were responsible for some of the best metalcore based bangers of the late 00’s.
There are three certainties in this life; death, taxes and Andrew WK partying. Literally he never stops. Even when asked to film a bit for this video he had to go harder than absolutely everybody else. What a legend.
Pete Wentz. In the back of a van. Disrespecting his surroundings. What’s not to love about that? G’WAN PETE, SHOW THOSE BREAKABLES WHAT YOU’RE MADE OF.
Having a drive around and looking totally solid, these Swedish punk stalwarts are a clear influence on our lads thanks to their love of blending rough and smooth sounds together.
AS I LAY DYING
Another prime example of how ADTR manage to make musical worlds cross over in the most wonderful ways.
THE RED CHORD
Now we’re getting heavy. But even the most disgustingly vicious of riff merchants are able to muster a bit of a smile when asked to on camera. No excuse for you not to be grinning from cheek to cheek now.
AUGUST BURNS RED
One of the most technically gifted bands in the world having a close knit jam in what looks like a very well kitted out caravan. Life is so wonderful sometimes isn’t it?
If you saw Andrew Neufeld walking towards you in a dark corridor like this you’d definitely get ready to hand over your lunch money immediately wouldn’t you?
Seventh Star are a band from Florida. Seventh Star are heavy as sin. Seventh Sin were a huge influence on A Day To Remember. So without Seventh Star there may never have been an A Day To Remember. Thank you Seventh Star.
MAYLENE & THE SONS OF DISASTER
You won’t find many bands hairier than MATSOD. Some excellent hand claw action and even a glimpse of what looks like an air guitar on show here. Lovely stuff.
LOOK HOW LONG SAM CARTER’S HAIR IS. Taking in the beautiful landscape behind him and helping out his mates by doing a mime. Good lad.
Pop-punk legends in their own right and still smashing it 27 years after they first burst on to the scene, it only seems right that ADTR pay tribute to MxPx by letting them rock out a bit here. Also, MIKE HERRARA WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN THERE?
Ed McRae absolutely launching himself down the street like his life depended on it. That’s what it’s all about. YD and ADTR shared many a stage together back in the day. What we would do to see it again now.
Probably the most metal appearance in this video but Matt Heafy has always been a supporter of all shades of heavy. So showing his support to the ADTR lads makes a lot of sense. Also look at the size of that backdrop!
PIERCE THE VEIL
There’s something so satisfying about a bit of canon narrative in music videos. Returning the very angry call that Jeremy left in PTV’s video for ‘Caraphernelia’, Vic looks absolutely furious here. And so he should be.
THE ACACIA STRAIN
This is a proper blink-and-miss-it one. One minute your screen is full of Vincent Bennett raining down on you like a tonne of bricks, the next he is gone. Was he even there at all? Did you just imagine it? Is this all a dream? We will never know (it’s not a dream, he was there).
THIS IS HELL
Another example of how it’s impossible to look anything less than cool as fuck when you’re driving around and having a sing song.
SET YOUR GOALS
How sick is the room that SYG are standing in here? If you’re in a band and your bedroom/living room/bathroom/garage isn’t full of flyers and posters and prints from all of your own shows then what’s the point in being in a band at all?
