    Daytrader is dead, long live Daytrader.



    Was reminded today of how awesome this band is and it's a shame they'll never make a follow-up to their debut record. I saw this band open so many times and I wish they had caught on with a bigger audience. Anyone else still love these guys?

    Miss this band. Twelve Years was my favorite album released in 2012. TYM is an incredible vocalist. I wish that Some Stranger album (Tym + Daniel Danger) that was recorded with Will Yip would surface. :(

    Super underrated band. Need to revisit this. What were the other projects TYM did around this time? I recall some people saying his band right after Daytrader was great also.

    If only they had stuck around just a little longer, the way the scene evolved with Balance and Composure, Citizen, and Title Fight makes me think they would have caught on with a lot more kids.

    deadfriends is such a damn good song.

    Like the whole album though, I'm also very partial to Firebreather.

    The last two songs are two of the best pop punk songs in a very long time

    I had their singer Tym on my podcast a few months ago to talk about his time in Daytrader and other bands.

    TOM NOOK? MORE LIKE TOM SHOOK Prestigious

    Letter to a former lover is one of the chillest songs ever. It feels like a mature way to handle and think about an old relationship. I don't know if I'm missing the point and the song is just about being stuck in the past, but that's not what it is to me.

    What are they working on now?

    Oh right. Should have clarified, I meant after the breakup. The only thing I found after googling is Some Stranger.
