One only has to take a quick glance at the internet to realize how quickly today’s music industry has been overcome by electronic dance music (known as “EDM”).
It’s now everywhere; in clubs, festivals, commercials, radio and movies.
Yet despite the genre’s success, many have expressed frustration at the fact that live performance of EDM has been reduced to a single DJ twisting knobs on a console.
What if one could take this incredibly popular EDM genre and personalize it with a dynamic full live band performance?
The answer to that, my friend, is Day Method.
Formed in 2005, Day Method is a young, Los Angeles EDM/rock trio with a futuristic live performance for all ages.
Day Method combines the Electronic Dance/DJ genre with a high-energy, full band rock show; breaking grounds previously untouched in modern music.
Through the use of dance and rock music, futuristic costumes, choreography and a state-of-the-art DMX Laser Light Show, Day Method guarantees an unforgettable performance.
The band’s debut album “Beautiful” was released independently in July 2011. The album includes their hit single “Beautiful”, a high-energy dance serenade, reaching out to restore the self-esteem of young girls and teens. This is but one example of the mission that is Day Method’s goal to impact the youth of this generation.
Many industry figures praised the album, including John Gorman (of WMMS and Gorman Media) saying Beautiful “delivers optimistic and innovative messages ingeniously wrapped in an energetic ball of diverse musical styles.”
Their sophomore album “On My Mind” was released in the summer of 2013. The stylistic shift in this second album marked the band’s growing expansion into the electronic/hardcore genre known as “dubstep”, arguably the fastest spreading genre both in the US and around the world.
Singles such as “8-Bit Kingdom“, “Challenge Accepted” and “WHAT IS THIS I DON’T EVEN” received radical audience feedback with many drawing comparisons to the dubstep legend Skrillex.
Their latest album “Silence Departed“, an extended edition of “On My Mind“, containing five brand new songs along with remastered recordings of singles Beautiful and Battleground, was released on July 5th 2015.
All three albums are available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and Spotify.
Day Method has performed at a number of major events and music festivals including three appearances at the nationally acclaimed Alive Festival (from 2009-2011), The Fest in August 2012 (with national artist Switchfoot), Awaken Festival 2013 (with Family Force 5), and three headlining appearances at the Medina Fireworks Festival in July 2012, 2013 and 2014.
In November of 2013, Day Method became one of the only independent artists to perform with their own fully-automated DMX Laser Light Show. Their light show is now included at any indoor or night time performance.
Day Method is currently in Los Angeles working on projects for TV, film and advertising in between live events.

Ben Williams (Spectrum) – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Keys, DJ
