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.

After years of going to shows together, and creating music in different groups/projects, the five friends in Eidola started writing music to have a fun, make music that matters to each of the members, and participate in a community that has helped shaped who they are.
Last year, Eidola recorded their album "Companion" with Sam Pura (The Story So Far, Sabertooth Zombie) @ Panda Studios in Fremont, Ca.
New material was recently recorded with Scott Goodrich (All Teeth, Stickup Kid) @ Nu-Tone Studios and will be released later this year
