True peak in the song
The song is almost balanced – the bass guitar has a peak on ~80Hz which makes it slightly boom and hard to hear on smaller devices / speakers. There could be +3db more on ~8kHz to refresh the overall sound.
The guitars do not take place in the area ~200-400Hz, which makes it hard to identify. All vocals and guitars mainly share the frequencies from ~500Hz to 4kHz. Could be better balanced.
The maximum true peak measured in the song is around +0,6db, which is over and can lead to distortion on some devices.
The stereo basis is well balanced. Switched to mono the background voices and the rhythm guitars dissapear. Have a look at your mono compatibility.
The vocals are out of timing in the final chorus around 02:14m.
My subjective opinion
It's a great and fresh song, the band seems to know what they're doing. "No more bad days" has a good amount of variety, which makes it interesting for a listener. The guitars should take more place ~300Hz to keep the transparency and balance.
