Subsequent albums, laid down by Meeks and a series of bandmates, failed to match the success of the band's debut, while Meeks hooked himself on crystal meth.
After a successful stint in rehab, Meeks rediscovered his music. Days of the New is now out of storage and back on the road. Those expecting the hits will get them, but with a catch. "I am continuing to develop the old music to fit where I feel I am today," explains Meeks, who will also spotlight tracks from Days of the New's upcoming fourth disc.
