Dark New Day's latest album, 'New Tradition,' is set to hit stores on Feb. 28, and the band is offering a bonus track to fans who show their dedication to the group.

Fans who purchase the full album and send a photo to the band of themselves holding the CD or a digital photo of their purchase online will receive a special bonus track MP3 of 'Rising Sun.'

"'Rising Sun' is a cool tune in the history of DND," says drummer Will Hunt. "We actually said before writing it, in not so many words, let's write as basic a rock song as we can for the sake of doing it because we can. It’s kinda getting back to our formidable 'roots.' It's really just about getting in your car, crankin' up some jams, and headin' out to get rowdy with your friends. Very different for us lyrically and stylistically."

Fans who wish to participate in the special offer can send their photos to the band at DND@goombamusic.com or by snailmail to the band's record label at Goomba Music, 6348 N. Milwaukee Ave., Suite 301, Chicago, Ill. 60646 (must be postmarked by March 6).

'New Tradition' is the follow-up release to the band's 2005 debut album, 'Twelve Year Silence.' A year later, Dark New Day released 'The Black Porch Acoustic Sessions' EP after their high-profile tours with band including Chevelle, Seether and Crossfade, among others.

The band is made up of guitarist Clint Lowery (Sevendust), drummer Will Hunt (Evanescence), guitarist Troy McLawhorn (Evanescence), singer Brett Hestla (Virgos Merlot) and bassist Corey Lowery (Clint's brother, as well as member of Stereomud and Eye Empire)
