about

Indie Vision Music drops the upcoming comeback album “1000 Years (Like a Day)” by the extremely underrated (and mostly unheard) indie rock band, Slow Coming Day.

The group toured & played with many great bands such as Mae, Copeland, Emery, Further Seems Forever, Juliana Theory, Twothirtyeight, Spitalfield, As Tall As Lions, Gatsby’s American Dream, Waking Ashland, Mewithoutyou, Anberlin, Brandtson, and Watashi Wa to name a few. They have also been featured on many different compilations over the years, including Deep Elm Record’s Emo Diaries Chapter 8.

Orion Walsh (vocals/guitar) says: "This album was made myself recording & by sending the songs back & forth to each other through email like the Postal Service did. Each member of Slow Coming Day lives in another state. I'm in Lincoln, Nebraska, Matt Bailey, drummer, lives in Portland, Oregon, Dave Stoots, bass, is in Indianapolis, Indiana, & Kevin Michael, guitar & Brandon Queen, formerly drums & bass, both live in L.A."
Turn off the TV, close your internet browsers, and put on the headphones, it’s time for a trip back in time. The critically underrated indie-emo-rock or whatever you would like to call them band, have decided to come out of retirement and write new songs. These 9 new songs will be arranged in an album titled “1000 Years (Like A Day)” which will be released via Indie Vision Music on February 14th.
It’ll be available in Digital format and on CD. Pre-orders for the CD have launched in the IVM Storenvy store. This new effort will see the band exploring new territory while full embracing a familiar landscape of carefully thought out melodies and remarkable songwriting. Orion Walsh and the gang are back and this new effort will prove once again why good music should never go unnoticed. Mastered by Sef Idle for Simpul Studio. If you’ve enjoyed Orion’s solo material, The Postal Service, Brandtson, Jimmy Eat World, American Football, Starflyer 59 and Slow Coming Day songs, you’re going to love this.


Slow Coming Day is an American indie rock band consisting of Orion Walsh (vocals, guitar), Dave Stoots (bass), and Matt Bailey (drums). Previously the group released it’s first independent EP “A Part of Me Died” in 2002, followed by a full length “Farewell to the Familiar” on Tooth and Nail Records in 2003. The group toured & played with many great bands such as Mae, Copeland, Emery, Further Seems Forever, Juliana Theory, Twothirtyeight, Spitalfield, As Tall As Lions, Gatsby’s American Dream, Waking Ashland, Mewithoutyou, Anberlin, Brandtson, and Watashi Wa to name a few. The band has also been featured on many different compilations over the years the most notorious being Deep Elm Record’s Emo Diaries Chapter 8. Many individuals in the past have asked where the band name comes from. The truth is that Matt, the drummer, thought of the name. The idea behind Slow Coming Day can be summed up by reading 2 Peter chapter 3. “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”

Track Name: First Sight
The day we met
Is the day we said good-bye
And here I am
Wondering why
You had to leave and go away
I wish you knew
I wanted you to stay
When I saw you standing there
I knew it was love at first sight

After all these years
I still think of you
And though it didn't last
I'm grateful for you
When I saw you standing there
I knew it was love at first sight
Track Name: 1000 Years (Like a Day)
Love & hate
Joy & pain
1,000 years is like a day
Dark & Light
Wrong & right
1,000 years is like a day
Truth & lies
Sunset, sunrise
1,000 years is like a day
Money & God
Right & Wrong
1,000 year is like a day to You
Rich & poor
Less & more
1,000 years is like a day
Sober & drunk
Floating & sunk
1,000 years is like a day to You
Fear & Faith
Works & Grace
1,000 years is like a day
Young & old
hot & cold
1,000 years like a day
Track Name: Maybe
Maybe I'm in love
She's always on my mind
Maybe I'm just crazy
or Maybe not

Seems like it's been so long
Since I've been in love
Am I in love?
Is it just a crush?
I don't know what
Track Name: All Things New
All things will be made right
All things will be made new
On the day You return

There will be no more tears
There will be no more pain
There will be no more night
There will be only day
There will be no more death
He has conquered the grave

There will be a new heaven
There will be a new earth
The King of Kings will bring re-birth
Track Name: Shoes, Ships, & Sealing Wax
My shoes
Carried me
Far from all I know
My shoes, my shoes
Carried me away to you
To a foreign land
One that I don't understand the language of
But that's when I found love
I saw your beauty there
In the Florence air

Our ship set sail
Carried us around
The Venice canals
We float, We float
Together on a hostel boat
Next to the Berlin Wall
Maybe it's love after all
Our lips, our lips
Seem to be perfect
When they touched

But you flew home
& I flew home
& our homes are so far apart
Now I'm alone
Staring up at sealing wax
In between
Two cracks
Track Name: What Happened
Can someone please tell me what happened here?
I'm stone cold sober thinking back on the past 10 years
Everybody seems so preoccupied
Staring down at their screens every day of their lives

Can someone please tell me what happened here?
All my friends got married & moved away from here
Corrupt politicians on TV
Tell me who could save our country?

Can someone please tell me what happened here?
One day you told me you love me
The next you ran in fear
Grandparents rest in their graves
You've gotta die to be born again

Dust to dust
Ash to ash
It's all temporary
It's temporary

Can someone please tell me what happened here?
I'm stone cold sober thinking back on the past 10 years
Track Name: Let Go
Let go
Your false sense of control
The truth is you don't know what the future holds
Even though you live in the valley of shadows
He holds you close
Light
Shines through
The darkest of rooms
Makes all things new
Here's a clue
The Liar will close
The true King will come

What's unseen will last in eternity

Hope
It is alive
We will survive
We all will be transformed
New bodies
New names
All things will change

Let go of the past
What's unseen will last in eternity
Track Name: Like a Bolt of Lightning
They say that one day You'll come again
Not even the angels know when
Like a thief in the night stealing all your things
Like a bum on the streets begging for your change
Like a young child playing hide & seek
Like leaves from the trees fall to the ground
Like a bolt of lightning
Like a bolt of lightning
Like a bolt of lighting flashes through the sky

They say that one day You'll come again
Not even the angels know when
Anticipating the slow coming day
Waiting for change

They say that one day You'll come again
Like a bolt of lightning
Track Name: Change
Time has passed us by
Things aren't the way they were
Change has come
I'm not who I was

We drifted apart
Went our separate ways
It's ok to change
