Days Under Authority (DUA), is a heavy rock band based out of the Central Valley of California. The band formed in the fall of 2010. At an early age (ages 13-16), the band started gigging and playing shows wherever they could in California. The band’s high-energy live performance presented them many opportunities early on in their careers. They capitalized on these opportunities by playing shows with bands such as: Escape the Fate, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, TRAPT, Adelitas Way, Saliva, Alien Ant Farm, Nonpoint, New Year's Day, DED, Hawthorne Heights, We Are Harlot, Devour the Day, Stitched Up Heart, Shaman's Harvest and more.
After the addition of two new guitarists and a bass player in the fall of 2017, the band decided to rebrand, starting fresh with a new lineup featuring a full and more mature sound. Part of this restart included the release of their debut EP "Not My Nightmare" in September of 2018. The current lineup of the band consists of Zach Corsi, Brenden Bonsell, Stone Roach, Brannon Armitstead, and Jonathan Bracamonte.
The band's unique sound comes from the melting pot of influences that they all share. Whether it be Metallica, System of a Down, Dance Gavin Dance, Avenged Sevenfold, Megadeth, Nothing More, RED, Dream Theater, or Rage Against the Machine; Days Under Authority has found that center piece of bliss where their sound takes its stronghold. Each member has a passion for music and are constantly writing and experimenting to make art that is unique to only them.
Presently, (ages 21-26) Days Under Authority is writing their debut album, set to be released in 2020. This new album will feature an outstanding level of musicianship, and will be what sets DUA aside from other artists upon release.
The band continues to take their energy/success with them wherever they perform and with whomever they meet, picking up endorsements and sponsors with Ernie Ball, EMG Pickups, InTune Guitar Picks, Xcel Drumsticks, and Redwave Tattoo & Art Gallery along the way. With help from the team they have spent many years to build, DUA will continue to take over the music scene little by little.
