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.
Eidola is a five piece experimental post-hardcore band from Salt Lake City, Utah. Over the last four years, Eidola have managed to release two highly praised full-length concept albums, tour the country with industry behemoths like Dance Gavin Dance, and partner with Blue Swan Records and Artery Global to bring their passionate, progressive sound to the masses. Their new album Degeneraterra has received acclaim for it’s ambitious sonic scope, complex songwriting, and existential lyrics.
