New Years Day Release a Music Video for “Disgust Me”

Hard rock band New Years Day released an ominous music video for their single “Disgust Me” today via RED MUSIC, which premiered exclusively with Heavy Consequence. In the dark coming-of-age visual narrative, an all-red haired Ash Costellois summoned to an abandoned house where she meets her alter ego, a gothic goddess who conjures the collide of both worlds. Watch “Disgust Me” here.

‘Disgust Me’ is about seeing the side of someone that they tend to hide. Whether it be because they have deemed it undesirable or unattractive for whatever reason or out of fear of being judged as less than because of the dark sides they possess. ‘Disgust Me’ is asking the listener to not be afraid to show these parts because it just may bring you relief instead of sorrow,” Costello told Heavy Consequence. “I am asked a lot why I decided to dye my hair half red and half black, so I saw the ‘Disgust Me’ music video as an opportunity to give that a story of its own. The all-black-haired girl calling upon the dark spirits to show themselves, and the all-red-haired girl who’s been lost alone in the wilderness, coming together to make one whole person. To me it felt symbolic, like the two sides of me can both shine, the light and the dark.

“Disgust Me” is the first song on New Years Day’s most-recent EP, Diary of a Creep, released in January 2018 and is accompanied by five cover songs. The six-song EP follows the tradition of landmark releases like Garage Days by Metallica by paying tribute to the artists who shaped the band. New Years Day offers renditions of Garbage’s “Only Happy When It Rains,” New Order’s “Bizarre Love Triangle,” No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak” and more. The Orange County-based band performed “Only Happy When It Rains” alongside current tour mate Lzzy Hale at the 2017 Alternative Press Music Awards.

The release of the “Disgust Me” music video coincides with the start of the second leg of New Years Day’s tour with Halestorm and In This Moment today. The all-female-fronted U.S. tour kicked off in May and will hit 35 additional cities through the end of the year. Visit for tickets. New Years Day has previously toured with Escape the Fate, Hellyeah and Attila in addition to headlining multiple North American tours, including the 2017 Vans Warped Tour.
