Today, Hail The Sun shared the final two tracks in their Reimagined series, “Falling on Deaf Ears” and “Secret Wars”. The band shines a new light on each track, taking these heavily technical songs and turning them into beautiful acoustic arrangements. Working with producer Allen Casillas (VIS) on Reimagined, the project first came to fruition through the band’s Patreon. You can stream the full Reimagined series here now.
Hail The Sun have been keeping busy throughout 2020, spending most of their time working on the follow-up to 2018’s critically-acclaimed Mental Knife, set for release next year on Equal Vision Records. On the upcoming material, the band promises a larger sound that blurs genre lines as well as some of their most personal lyrical content to date. Fans should stay tuned as 2021 is set to be another big year for Hail The Sun.
Speaking on Reimagined, guitarist Shane Gann stated:
Both songs center around debatable topics; “Falling on Deaf Ears” is about questioning religion, whereas “Secret Wars” is about questioning those in positions of power, namely those who hold office. Each song is extremely close to our hearts, since as a band, we believe in taking nothing at face value. While we are in no way anti-religion or anti-government, we are also not comfortable accepting all that we are told, and considering how much goes on behind closed doors, and how much abuse of power has taken place throughout history, we like to promote a message of healthy skepticism.
