The Daze joins the CBW Radio lineup this Friday on The Rock Revival.
The Daze are an up-and-coming local band from the outskirts of Cleveland who will make their radio debut this Friday, November 11th, 2022, during Style’s Rock Revival show on CBW Radio. The boys will be featured at 2:15pm eastern as this week’s Independent Spotlight showcasing their single Red Mark. Style got in touch with Eddie and RJ of The Daze to give a little more insight behind the band.
Who are The Daze?
When did The Daze come about and who are the members?
“The Daze was formed in mid-2020 during the pandemic by a group of high school friends.
The current lineup consists of Eddie Grier on Vocals and Guitar, RJ Beall on Guitar and
Bass, and Basil Johnson on drums.”
How would you describe your sound?
“Our sound is a mix of Alternative Rock, Garage Rock with hints of Indie and punk.”
Who have been your biggest influences thus far?
“We are big fans of the grunge scene, bands like Alice In Chains and Nirvana, but also dig
the bands that expanded their sound in drop tuning like Helmet and Silverchair, and the
bands that added more catchy hooks like Oasis and The Vines.”
What went into writing Red Mark?
(Eddie) “Well, it’s the first song I ever wrote intended for a band to play. I was really into the
whole Garage Rock genre of the early 2000’s and tried to write something like The White Stripes or The Hives or The Vines. It’s a quick, catchy little tune that I thought would
be perfect to drop as a single.”
What does it mean to be showcased on CBW Radio?
(RJ) “It means a lot, for sure. This is our first time being showcased on a station, and it
shows that our hard work is paying off not only in writing and recording, but playing live and
spreading the word of The Daze.”
(Eddie) “We’ve had these songs (and a lot more) brewing for a while. So to see it released
for anyone to listen to is really cool. And to watch these songs being picked up and
shared really helps us keep pushing.”
Where else can we find your music?
“You can find our Red Mark EP on any and all streaming platforms. This includes Spotify,
Apple Music, YouTube, Amazon Music, Tiktok I think, and more!
You can watch the music video for Red Mark on our channel as well.”
What’s next for The Daze?
“This year will be our 2nd time competing in the annual TRi-C High School Rock Off at the
Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in February. We teamed up with Eleventh Records out of
Cleveland to re-issue our EP on CD so we’ll have physical copies to sell soon as well. On
top of that, we are currently recording our debut album which is set to release in early 2023.
We plan on playing more shows and you can come to see us on December 9th at the Outpost in Kent, Ohio. All proceeds of that show are being donated to Toys 4 Totz.
Be sure to catch The Daze this Friday on The Rock Revival as well as going forward on CBW Radio!
