In a world where the headlines are dominated by violence and unrest, Daybreaker is thrilled to announce its latest initiative, the “Peace Tour,” a series of events set in some of the world’s most iconic locations. This tour, launching on the heels of their successful “10 Year Together Tour,” aims to unite people through dance, joy, and a shared sense of community, embodying the spirit of peace in turbulent times.
As part of the tour, Daybreaker will host events at the Top of The Rock in New York City, The Rink at Rockefeller Plaza, The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and the Santa Monica Pier, among other notable venues. Each location has been carefully chosen to reflect the tour’s core message: a celebration of unity and the transformative power of coming together in joy and dance. The tour will also include a letter-writing campaign, encouraging participants worldwide to express their calls for peace through heartfelt messages and videos.
In an intriguing update to Daybreaker’s range of offerings, the brand is preparing to introduce the SUNRISE SUPERTONIC, developed in collaboration with PARCH, a leader in the non-alcoholic beverage industry. This new initiative, unveiled in the coming months, marks an innovative step in Daybreaker’s ongoing dedication to enhancing wellness and fostering community through their events.
In addition, Radha Agrawal, the driving force behind Daybreaker’s success, will be delivering a keynote on BELONGING at SXSW on March 8th, underscoring the impact of her work in the field of community building and wellness. Additionally, the second cohort of the Power of Community Building course is now live, with enrollment open until February 5th. The course, led by Radha, brings together community leaders from diverse backgrounds, including the founder of Equinox and the lead of the Department of Positive Psychology at UPenn, offering a unique opportunity for learning and connection.
The Peace Tour promises to be a journey of joy, connection, and transformation, bringing the Daybreaker experience to new heights and new places. Join us in celebrating peace, community, and the power of dance.

Max & Iggor Cavalera’s Blood Brothers Coffee Available Soon
Legendary metal brothers Max & Iggor Cavalera bring you a taste of home from the coffee bloodline buried deep within the sacrificial soil.
The Tribe has spoken! Arise from the grave and drink from the lifeblood! Legendary metal brothers Max & Iggor Cavalera have gone back to their roots to bring you a taste of home from the bloodline buried deep within the sacrificial soil. Dubbed the world’s “bloodiest” coffee, this coffee lives up to its reputation as the heaviest of the Brazilian Legenders, with its deep, rich notes that will thump and chug your heart right out of your chest!
This bone-breaking brew was handpicked by the Cavalera Tribe themselves to inspire generations of headbangers to come. So, take your place on the totem around the tribal fires, and drink from the sacrificial lifeblood today, and experience an intense, immersive coffee experience like no other!
Concept Cafes tell us:
“Collaborating with the Tribe, we wanted to accomplish two things with ‘Blood Brothers’…: 1) further push the initiative that Metal has a place in the coffee world beyond the burnt leftovers from the factory floor & 2) share the often overlooked, yet some of the best coffee in the world, that comes out of Brazil. The collective challenge was how do you package 40 years of legacy from such an influential & integral part of Metal history into a bag/can of coffee…? Furthermore, how do you represent Brazilian culture, and most importantly, how do you humbly present the best offering to metalheads around the world? But Max & Iggor, and the rest of the Cavalera Tribe, actually made it pretty easy for us once we started working with them. When you see the level of passion & devotion they have for the music and touring for the fans, it really is awe-inspiring; so everything kinda just started to come together on this project ‘organically’. Marina (Concept’s head artist) & I had the initial idea that if we could make everything organic enough to pay tribute to Max’s love for camo, we might just pull this off. How’d we do…? LOL”
Max & Iggor’s “Blood Brothers” coffee was a semifinalist in the coffee industry’s prestigious 2023 Sprudgie Awards (the equivalent of the Grammys in the coffee world).
You can pre-order Max & Iggor Cavalera’s Official ‘Blood Brothers’ Coffee Cold Nitro Brew Cans available in espresso, non-dairy latte & flavoured latte versions here.
Salah Bachir Publishes Titillating Memoir ‘First To Leave The Party’
Salah Bachir recently released his titillating memoir, ‘First To Leave The Party,’ offering intimate details about the rich and famous and Bachir’s gusto and lust for life.
Author, entrepreneur, art collector, movie industry insider, and philanthropist Salah Bachir recently released his memoir, First To Leave The Party: My Life with Ordinary People…Who Happen to be Famous, a collection of stories revealing his joie de vivre, his love of human interaction, and his altruism.
After immigrating to Canada from Lebanon in the 1960s, Bachir started Videomania, Canada’s first video magazine, followed by establishing Premiere, a trade publication for video distributors and retailers.
For more than a decade and a half, Bachir was the president of Cineplex Media and boss of Cineplex Magazine, Canada’s wildly popular and widely read magazine, serving more than four million readers per issue.
A fixture in the world of film for decades, Bachir naturally met Hollywood’s superstars. Yet what sets him apart is his charisma, compassion, his personal style – chic hats, diamonds, pearls, brooches, and elegant scarves – and his full-blown zest for life and people.
First To Leave The Party recounts his relationships with a literal who’s who of Hollywood: Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, Joan Rivers, Mary Tyler Moore, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Edward Albee, Orson Welles, Aretha Franklin, Norman Jewison, and Elizabeth Taylor — although it’s true that Katharine Hepburn once turned him down, very nicely.
There are also stories about Marlon Brando, Princess Diana, Muhammad Ali, Princess Margaret, Sean Connery, Ella Fitzgerald, and Doris Day.
Co-written with film critic Jami Bernard of the New York Post and Daily News, a portion of the proceeds from the book will be donated to the LGBTQ+ rights program at Human Rights Watch.
Featured in numerous publications, including The Globe & Mail, Playback Magazine, Dolce, and Toronto Life, Bachir has received five honorary doctorate degrees from the University of Alberta, Ryerson University, York University, OCAD University, and Wilfrid Laurier University in recognition of his business expertise and philanthropic work.
Along with a long list of deserved awards, Bachir, because of his entrepreneurial spirit and advocacy of the arts and social justice, is a member of the Order of Ontario and the Order of Canada, as well as a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community and two-time Grand Marshal of the Toronto Pride Parade.
The stories related in First To Leave The Party not only provide a parade of intimate detail about the lives of the rich and famous, the entertainment industry’s elite, but also bare Salah Bachir’s gusto and lust for life.
