The Forty Days biography
Founded in Pisa, Italy in 2014

THE FORTY DAYS can be defined as a progressive rock band with obvious art/rock, pop/rock and psychedelic rock touches. They formed in August 2014 as a Seventies rock cover band, with the first line-up including Giancarlo Padula on vocals, Dario Vignale on guitar, Andrea Lucchese on drums and Dario Masiello on bass (the first three having previously played together in a Pink Floyd tribute band). The name `The Forty Days' came from the fact that there were about 40 days from the first rehearsal to the first live concert!

After three months of intense live activity, Dario Masiello left for Australia in November 2014. But the band decided to start working on their own progressive-rock songs with a melodic edge. Giancarlo started to also play keyboards and Massimo Valloni became the new bass player. In August 2015, after some live gigs, drummer Andrea left for England, to be replaced by Giorgio Morreale, completing the current line-up. By 2016 the band had intensified live gigs, coming very close to winning the regional final of the famous international contest `Emergenza Festival' (The Cage Theatre, Livorno) and winning the contest `Band on the Road' organized by Route 66 (Asciano, Pisa).

October 2017 saw the release of the first The Forty Days album `The Colour of Change', a concept album that speaks about the worries and everyday stresses of an almost 30-year-old man. Performed in English, it reminds of many modern international progressive acts such as PINK FLOYD, PORCUPINE TREE/STEVEN WILSON, NO-SOUND, the Steve Hogarth-era of MARILLION and perhaps even the gentler moments of RIVERSIDE, yet retains the passionate and sensitive vocal delivery, keyboard bombast and fancy touches associated with so many Italian progressive acts (perhaps also sounding like a less retro version of modern Italian group CELLAR NOISE). It's a superb first release from a promising and exciting new Italian band, so keep an eye on THE FORTY DAYS!
