A Day Without Love has existed in many forms. Started as a solo act by frontman Brian Walker during his college years, the music took on the shape of a full-band when Walker collaborated with Philadelphia producer Jake Detwiler in 2013. The resulting debut EP, "Island", was a sharp contrast from the mellow acoustic musings that Walker had leaned on in the past - it was aggressive, grungy, and energetic.
Since then, A Day Without Love has seen a rotating cast of musicians surround the singer/songwriter for a handful of short releases ("Confessions of the Innocent Mind" (2014) "A Day Without Oscar" split EP(2014) , Songs for the Lonely(2015) , Young Professionals(2015).
In 2015 and 2016 A Day Without Love has played SXSW, signed to Sounds and Tones Records releasing a rerelease of Island (2013) via cassette and has been consistently touring the northeast area of the us and parts of the south. The band has done a crowd-funded fundraiser for Erika’s Lighthouse, has spoken about the importance of mental health awareness at shows, and has done a 90 covers in 90 days challenge via YouTube to bring awareness about mental health. After doing this challenge, A Day Without Love recorded a 13-song debut LP entitled, Solace that has been released August 30th, 2016. Solace has recieved national and international reviews and praise from various publications ranging from XPN, Jump Philly, Impose Magazine, Paste Magazine, Daytrotter and others.
In 2017 and 2018 A Day Without Love toured more of the US with artists such as Izzy Heltai, Kate Dressed Up, and a variety of solo tours where ADWL met the likes of individuals such as Bartees Strange. During this time ADWL wrote Diary a 24 song bedroom album. After a successful release of this record, ADWL has embarked on the creation of a tour and culture documentary which will be coming out in late 2019 or 2020 and has done a series of collaborative releases with various artists on the east coast. ADWL is currently booking shows and aspires to tour the entire US , EU and Asia.
