Hail The Sun Streams "Entertainment Lies"

Hail The Sun just released new track "Entertainment Lies," which can be heard below comes off upcoming full-length "Culture Scars," due out on June 17th just before the band begins a run on the 2016 Vans Warped Tour.

"Our generation is pretty desensitized by sex, with it so readily available at our fingertips. And while we believe it's important to express ourselves sexually, there are many of us who do not know the dark treatment and situations girls endure when entering - and leaving - the adult entertainment industry," states vocalist/drummer Donovan Melero.

He goes on to say, "I hope that this song helps to provoke thought on how x-rated films portray women, and how it affects their lives on and off screen, as well as how we, the general population, perceive women because of these videos. I would venture to say it truly ISN’T as it seems on camera." More...

Hail The Sun Signs With Equal Vision

Chico, CA’s Hail The Sun has signed to Equal Vision Records and just premiered new track "Paranoia" online.

"Musically and lyrically, this song is about the perspective of how you see yourself versus how others see you, and whether it matters or not if there is a difference," reveals Hail The Sun vocalist/drummer Donovan Melero. "This is a demo version, of course, and will be redone in our sessions with Watts. We wanted to share this anyway to put something new out into the world and have it be something special for our friends and early supporters."

The band has also announced a new headline tour, with support from Oranges and Makari. The tour will head to the east coast, where Hail The Sun will also enter the studio with producer Mike Watts (The Dear Hunter, Hopesfall, As Cities Burn) to record a third full-length.

"We are going to be spending a month in New York in the studio with Mike Watts. Mike feels like the perfect fit for the raw, yet still polished, sound that we are seeking, and that some of our inspirations have captured in the past," continues Melero. "We aren’t slowing down one bit stylistically, but rather taking the same Hail The Sun we all know and developing it even more. Our vision is another collection of songs that, when performed, we can play from the heart and really feel the meaning and vibe of each. We are all about playing music that we love, while keeping the integrity of songwriting and meaning intact. And we plan to do just that." More...
