A Day in the Life was an American rock band formed in Dayton, Ohio, in 2001. In 2003, the band changed its name to Hawthorne Heights.

History[edit]

They were formed by JT Woodruff, Jesse Blair, Andy Saunders, Josh Bethel, and Andy Lazier. They took their name from the popular Beatles song "A Day in the Life". Their first record was a demo entitled Four Bullets for One Girl, which sold its 500 copy run in 2 months.[1] This brought them to the attention of Confined Records, with which they released an album entitled Nine Reasons to Say Goodbye. Finally, they released a 6-song EP entitled Paper Chromatography: The Fade from Dark to Light in the winter of 2003 before becoming the more successful Hawthorne Heights.[1] Later, after the band had already signed to Victory Records, Radio Eat Radio Records re-released 5 of these songs on a compilation entitled From Ohio with Love. In 2003, lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist JT Woodruff changed the name of the band to Hawthorne Heights. The first song the band wrote after the change is entitled "The Transition".
