Band History

Day Six’s music can best be described as progressive rock/metal, although it also incorporates symphonic elements, as well as influences from pop, electro, jazz, and funk. Founded in 1996 under the name Peanuts, the band has been known as Day Six since 2002 and underwent a lineup change in 2015. Longtime musical friends and original members Robbie van Stiphout (guitar, vocals) and Daan Liebregts (drums) have a 20-year history of making music together. Eric Smits (bass, backing vocals) joined the band in 2011, bringing a wealth of musical experience as a singer and bassist with Casual Silence and various other bands. Rutger Vlek recorded the excellent keyboards on the latest album. Keyboardist Desmond Robberegt is the newest addition to Day Six’s live band.

Influences

The band shows strong influences from 70s bands like Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Rush, Yes, and ELP, as well as modern bands such as Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Dream Theater, Muse, and Transatlantic.

Live Performances

Live performances have always been an essential aspect of Day Six’s DNA, where they enjoy the energy and interaction on stage, as well as continual efforts to deliver the best possible sound to their audience. This was evident in a typically British style when their UK tour in 2011 was reviewed as “Jawdroppingly good!”.

Albums

After releasing their debut album “Eternal Dignity” (2003, Progman Records), Day Six actively participated in various music competitions, consistently receiving high praise and winning the prestigious Dutch “Metal Battle” (2004) and “Aardschok Metal Bash” (2004).

In 2010, the band’s second album, “The Grand Design,” was released worldwide through Lion Music Records. The album was very well received, leading to international interest, a UK tour, and support opportunities with Threshold, Vanden Plas, Riverside, Evergrey, The Gathering, and Focus, as well as bookings for festivals like Summer’s End (UK, 2011), Fused Festival (UK, 2011), Headway Festival (NL, 2003), and Progpower Europe (NL, 2004, 2007, 2010, 2013).

In November 2017, Day Six embarked on a very successful European tour with the release of their brand-new album “Solitary League” on Lion Music Records, followed by numerous positive reviews. A great start to a new chapter!

Latest News

Following the release, Day Six continued to do what they do best: take to the stage! They performed in the Netherlands, Germany, and the United Kingdom, both as a headliner and as a supporting act for other bands.

During the “Haveltsessions,” several video clips were recorded in the purest way: absolutely live, without overdubs, no playback, no lip-syncing. “A Flight to Mars” from the Solitary League album will be released soon as the first of these.

2024 will be a special year! Thirty years ago, in 1994, King of Darkness was formed. This band evolved into Peanuts and eventually became Day Six. What better place to throw birthday parties than on stage! Expect songs that haven’t been played in decades, mixed with tracks from the Day Six era and even new material!
