27 December 8th, 2013 Former DAYS Stars Chandler Massey, Casey Deidrick & Their Band “And Still I Rise” Cover Miley Cyrus “Wrecking Ball”!


So what have Chandler Massey (Ex-Will) and Casey Deidrick (Ex-Casey) been doing since they both departed Days of our Lives?  Well, partly they are making music and a new music video with their band, And Still I Rise!  And today, the band has released a music video of their cover of Miley Cyrus top hit, “Wrecking Ball”!

Now, And Still I Rise version of the Miley tune is quite different than the original … think the sound of rock band Linkin Park with a more heavy metal twist!

The band consists of:  Casey Deidrick (Vocals), Chandler Massey (Keyboards/Vocals), Stephen Haynes (Guitar/Vocals), Michael Gross (Guitar/Vocals) and Josh Bonaparte (Bass/Vocals).

In the newly released music video it seems like a night of pseudo-frat boy fun, complete with liquor and a bong, goes awry when a ghost joins the party!  However, take a listen as you watch the video down to the great vocals of Chandler Massey and Michael Gross!

Now, watch “Wrecking Ball” with the guys after the jump! Then, let us know what you thought of the bands sound, seeing Chandler and Casey again, the video contents, and if you like And I Still Rise version of the tune better than Ms. Miley’s?

    love the guys and miss them from days of our lives but hate this song wished they would get out of this kind of music


  2. kay says:

    I thought the guys did a great job on the song and the video was hilarious.


  3. blake says:

    I really liked that, the song and the video. I would definitely like to hear and see more of them!


  4. Janine says:

    Loved it!


  5. Libby says:

    It is sad to see these guys collect money through Kickstarter to produce ridiculously poor music videos like the last 2 I have seen. They are awful in my opinion.

    I sincerely hope the other guys follow Chandler Massey’s lead and enroll / or return to college for an education and an earnest future.

    What a shame and a waste of time and resources.


    jennifer replied

    Wow you sound miserable, Go have your cereal. Maybe you will feel better. This was fun to watch, I hope they do, more stuff together.


    g replied

    Different strokes for different folks, I agree with you Libby.


  6. Lee says:

    Chandler has an awesome voice. Would love to hear more of him.


  7. Brian Haight says:

    Awesome incredible talents


  8. Me says:

    That stuff is dope, like Casey would say and the lyrics fit perfectly! :)

    Thank you Michael for being so supportive of what they do!

    Libby, for the cover of Miley Cyrus’ song, they didn’t collect money through Kickstarter. They did that for the song “65 Roses” and it was to raise awareness for the devastating effects that Cystic Fibrosis (CF) has on people that suffer from it. The music is metal and probably not your type of music but it was certainly not a ridiculously poor music video! The acting was to show a person with CF, struggling to stay alive and I think it was ridiculously WELL DONE! Matter of taste I guess.

    The “Wrecking Ball” song was hilarious and it seems like the guys had good fun making it and why not! And I think there is more to that song/clip, than you probably care to know.


    EJK replied

    Wrecking Ball is good fun but what’s with the “ghost” symbolically I guess for something the group conquered? Or someone. Like to know if you do. All big fans here.


    Me replied

    I think the “ghost” conquered one of the band’s members. Symbolically and literally..

  10. ricardo says:

    Chandler is a good singer, i also loved the video. great work guys.


  11. paos says:

    me encantooooooooooo
    y mas Chandler


  12. Alan says:

    I am far from a metal fan but AISR is really doing a great job. Yea I listened because of Chandler and Casey. They made a video that is a riot. Absolutely is a frat party. And really after seeing that skank Miley doing Wrecking Ball. These guys totally improved on the song.


  13. jimh(leave it to beaver) says:

    silly fun!!!


  14. Libby says:

    True, we all have different tastes. I am familiar with CF. We had a member of my extended family pass away from the disease at age 18. It was tragic. I still think that there are much better ways to bring awareness for CF – especially with $30k. Chandler Massey is a multi talented individual. I know very little of the other members of the group. These are young guys with potential and hope they all pursue worthwhile endeavors.


  15. Regina says:

    This version…WAY better than anything Miley Cyrus could have done! I am a rock/metal fan, and this ASIR version makes me like the song; the bands’, not MC’s version. Casey and Chandler are doing a rockin job with their band, and I cant wait to see what else they release. I cannot stop listening to “Sixty Five Roses”, and their video for that song is bitchin’! And Still I Rise is one of my new fave bands, and I think Chandler has a great voice! Casey is rockin it too! Way to go guys! Congrats, and keep on ROCKING!


  16. Gmbenet says:

    I would like to hear them sing a more conservative song – one without such background noise because the voices sound nice, but background noise took away from the song. As for the video, it was not my cup of tea, but I don’t begrudge others who enjoyed it. Do a different song/video so I can enjoy the voices.


  17. Scott (ATWT Fan) says:

    Not a fan of the drug use in this video, at all. Major turnoff.


  18. Tami says:

    OMG, that was hilarious!! BAHAHAHA, good video guys!


  19. Leslie says:

    I was so disappointed when days of our lives lost chad and will. I thought you guys were (are) mega talented actors. Although I enjoyed your music, I’ll be watching for your return to the screen.


  20. sharon baich says:

    Love it and i really miss both of you on days of our lives please come back. Dont like the new chad and will.


  21. Jack says:

    I think they did great!!!! I wanna hear more from them, the did amazing on the cover! I bought all their music Like Sixty Five Roses or the Orchard Road EP, I want hear from these guys!!!


  22. sandra says:
