With the recent release of their brilliant album Culture Scars, and their shows rocking the Full Sail University Stage, Hail The Sun is owning! it! this year. The band released their fourth studio album this June 17th with Equal Vision Records, and it mounted to #6 on the New Artist Chart, #97 on the Top 200 Chart, #22 on the Indie Label chart, and #57 on the Rock Chart.
Transitioning songs from studio to live performance is probably one of the most exciting and equally nerve-wracking processes for a band. But Hail The Sun ain't scared, and they're doing it quite exquisitely this summer.
I got to sit with guitarist Aric Garcia, lead vocalist and drummer Donovan Melero, and bassist John Stirrat to talk about Culture Scars, their love for the Warped Tour, and why John is the most charming guy around.
