A shining light in the dim world of post-hardcore, Hail the Sun makes us remember why we got into the genre in the first place. Like a cross between Circa Survive and The Fall of Troy, Hail the Sun make the kind of heavy, yet catchy tunes that Pitchfork wouldn’t dare even cover. Delicate guitar lines are pounded by the quick, pulsating rhythms until they shatter into a mess of off-kilter pop-punk-esque romps. Let’s just hope Hail the Sun marks the comeback of a once-great genre turned ridiculous. Check out the track “Testostyrannosaurus” off their 2012 EP Elephantitis below.
