Day Six’s music could best be described as progressive rock/metal, although it includes symphonic elements, as well as pop, electro, jazz and funk influences. Founded in 1996 under the name Peanuts, the band is known as Day Six since 2002 and changed to its current line-up in 2015. Long-time musical friends and original members Robbie van Stiphout (guitars, vocals) and Daan Liebregts (drums) share a history of 20 years of making music together.
