Published in January 2018, "Diary Of A Creep" saw New Years Day try the exercise of the cover, revisiting Panthera as well as Garbage or Linkin Park. If the result, although sympathetic and refreshing, has only half convinced, it will at least have given the band the desire to take care of a writing that he now wants even more biting . 

The fact that it took the Americans four years to offer a successor to "Malevolence" is certainly due to this new ambition. Born while she was going through the darkest and most chaotic period of her life, this third effort was nourished by the rage that inhabited the singer Ash Costello at the time. Since then, the sky has cleared for the frontwoman and the combo appears stronger than ever. Hence the title of this "Unbreakable", a long-awaited opus defined by this double context, both ambitious in its appeal and positive in its general atmosphere. 

First contact with this new vintage, the cover highlights the singer's enticing plastic, whose hair covers her generous chest like a modern-day Venus. A way of emphasizing that the beautiful remains more than ever the keystone of New Years Day, which without it, let us acknowledge, would probably not meet the same enthusiasm. It is clearly the beauty and the alternating aggressive and lascivious voice of the young woman that makes all the difference in a music (too) calibrated for the US waves but to which "Unbreakable" will perhaps open the doors of the European market. He has the potential to do so. 

However, listening does not come under the best auspices with a "Come For Me", an aggregate of all that American teen metal has to offer: a screaming song full of effects, guitars stuffed with a heavy and vulgar mascara. Our ears are bleeding. Fortunately, the rest is reassuring, revealing a formation that is certainly still influenced by "In This Moment" but that has learned to write good and beautiful songs. The ones that haunt you long after the disc has released its last whine like "I Survived". 

The Americans know how to flow seductive melodies. 'Done With You' or ' Skeletons' are thus hymns whose power could ignite the scenes of the old continent. Mièvrerie and romanticism do not find their place in an ensemble where even the quieter moments ('Poltergeist','My Monsters') do not give up an incisive touch. While it has neither given up its electro impulses ('Nocturnal') nor muzzled the dark force ('Shut Up'), New Years Day combines its different facets here for a simply irresistible result. 

We had long guessed that Ash Costello and his gang deserved better than the gothico nu metal front displayed, "Unbreakable" confirms it.
