PRESENTED BY Hail the Sun is an American post-hardcore band based in Chico, California. Formed in 2009, the band consists of lead vocalist and drummer Donovan Melero, lead guitarist Shane Gann, rhythm guitarist Aric Garcia, and bass guitarist John Stirrat. The band first released their debut studio album, POW! Right In the Kisser! (2010), and EP, Elephantitis (2012), independently. In 2014, they signed to Blue Swan Records and released their sophomore studio album, Wake. In 2016, the band departed from the label, signing to Equal Vision Records and releasing their third studio album, Culture Scars on June 17, 2016.

They have created a powerful, dense body of work that showcases a broad palette of dynamics ranging from complex, grandiose orchestrations to sharply contrasting intimate moments. Overall, it features a more polished sound while still embracing the pure, raw passion and energy that has become a key part of their signature sound. “I wanted to capture a sound that was organic and sparkling all at once, and I feel like we were able to,” reveals Melero.
“I want people to stop so easily accepting the realities that exist. We are a generation who are so comfortable watching things happen from behind screens, who are so accepting of the goings-on in the world, so long as they don’t directly affect their own lives,” shares Hail The Sun. “I want people to challenge themselves to think and act differently, to stop believing everything they read, to make more than just a carbon footprint. Break the mold.”
