FreeDay to Release Debut Album

FreeDay to Release Debut Album Welcome To The FreeDay on June 20

Drawing on their diverse backgrounds, personal values and love for each other, High School sweethearts Alex and Glenn Donaghy of FreeDay wear their scars on their sleeves with their debut album ‘Welcome to the FreeDay’, set for release on 20 June via Pure Entertainment.

First crossing paths at just 17, the now--married, singer/song writing couple have created a deeply personal album which hints at their past struggles while serving as a guiding light for others going through hard times.

Glen’s husky vocals exude a theatrical quality that moves from dreamlike pathos one minute to driving emotion the next.

Team that with his deft song writing and you have an album of unexpected but satisfying twists and turns, moving ballads and soul stirring pop songs.

Glen says because both he and Alex have overcome many struggles they’re now driven to look to the future and encourage people to take a positive message away from the album.

“We want listeners to feel that life is for them not against them,” says Glen.

“Our songs have tools on how to overcome. The lyrics are crafted into our songs for a reason. We’ve taken our real life experiences and put it into our music so we can share it with others.”

Welcome to the FreeDay’ is available from all good record stores and online from Monday June 20. For more information about the band, check out their website:
