Haste the Day was a christian metalcore band which formed in Indianapolis, Indiana, United States in 2001. They were signed to Solid State Records. Their band is named after a lyric in the hymn “It Is Well with My Soul”. Even though the band’s style is generally considered metalcore, the band describes their music as “rock and roll with breakdowns”. Vocalist Jimmy Ryan announced his departure from the band in late November of 2005 after accepting a job with their record label, Tooth & Nail Records.
