Hail The Sun has released their new single, “Secondary Worship,” via Equal Vision Records. With impressive guitar riffs that throw you back into the early 2000s metalcore scene, listeners are going to have their faces shredded off. The messaging of the track offers introspection of oneself.

Frontman Donovan Melero explains that the majority of their music is about self-realization while learning to grow from past mistakes. “But it came from a darker place,” he explains. “While I haven’t mastered it, I’ve certainly gotten better at directing my energy into the places it’s better suited for. And the places I want to go. Nothing is as pure as the feeling of alignment. ‘Secondary Worship’ is a story of the next part of that process.” 

It’s evident in the chorus that navigating hard times can have a positive outcome, “Now I’m such a different person/Found a better version/I swear.” Addressing buried thoughts and memories to rise above difficult times in life can be screamed out with this song. The track showcases that Hail The Sun understands how to move onward while sticking to their post-hardcore sound.
