Hail the Sun
Hail the Sun
Hail The Sun is a progressive post-hardcore quartet who met in Chico, CA, while studying music technology. The overlap of influences throughout the group has led them to become one of the most dynamic and intricate musical acts to come out of the scene in decades. Formed by drummer Donovan Melero and guitarist Aric Garcia (who played in a death metal band in high school), the original idea for the musical direction was to remain high-energy, while allowing melodies and harmonies to be a prominent feature, rather than just screaming to portray intense emotion. The addition of Shane Gann and John Stirrat brought additional flavors, and the group began to stretch its creative legs, allowing itself to write parts and songs that were much more heavily influenced by jazz, funk, blues, fusion, and Latin musical styles.

The group has toured extensively throughout its three-year existence, and has recently begun experiencing national exposure. They have one of the most high-energy live shows ever witnessed, and that's all while playing amazingly difficult lines and rhythms. Their drummer is their singer, which is a show in and of itself, and the addition of the other three acting as visual "frontmen," while not singing, lets the audience's attention move from here to there seamlessly, and without feeling bored.

"Ever since The Angst In My Veins came out, it's been all about getting in front of as many people as we can and putting every bit of energy we have into our performances. We wanted to create a visual on stage for the crowd that represents the angst that defines the record itself and I think we perfected that on our last tour of 2015," shares Capsize vocalist Daniel Wand, in regards to their recently released music video for the title track from their debut full-length album. "We luckily had our friend Sam Shapiro out with us on that tour to capture the experience, and we turned it into something more than just a music video. It's a celebration of our first album's touring cycle coming to an end, as we enter the studio for a brand new album. Since the release of The Angst In My Veins just over a year ago, we've played over 250 shows across the world and this video perfectly represents what we grew into throughout that time period." The video for "The Angst In My Veins" can be seen now HERE.

The Angst In My Veins was recorded with producer Jay Maas (Bane, Defeater) and impressively debuted at No. 13 on the Billboard New Artist Chart, No. 27 on the Hard Rock Chart and No. 53 on the Independent Artist Chart. The band's non-stop touring included US runs with the likes of Silverstein, Senses Fail, Being As An Ocean, Defeater, '68, and Counterparts, as well as three separate tours throughout Europe/UK, and their first ever tours in Japan and Australia.

Capsize has now just completed the recording process for their sophomore full-length with Matt McClellan (The Devil Wears Prada, Being As An Ocean, Better Off). McClellan also recorded the band's two recently released singles - "You Can't Come Home The Same" and "Enough For Me" - which are available now at youtube.com/equalvision, iTunes, and Spotify.

Capsize's new album is expected to be released in Summer 2016, and will feature a more prominent post-hardcore sound than on The Angst In My Veins with the incorporation of clean singing, which the band introduced into their sound for the first time on "You Can't Come Home The Same". Capsize initially formed in 2009 and is now comprised of Daniel Wand (vocals), Andrew Tamayo (drums), Ryan Knowles (guitar), and Nicolas Lopez (guitar).

"For the new album, we're setting new goals and getting back in touch with influences that made us want to make music in the first place, not just what inspired the band's creation. Every day we are letting ourselves be more of just that - ourselves, and I think that's a defining factor of creating longevity in what we're doing."
