Southern California’s DAYSEEKER will drop their new album Dark Sun on November 4 via Spinefarm. Pre-order it here.
Today, the band has shared the video for the latest single „Crying While You’re Dancing,“ which drills down on the album’s incredibly personal concept. Watch it here.
„‚Crying While You’re Dancing‘ is about those people you know who pretend to have the time of their lives while it’s clear to everyone around them that they’re spiraling,“ says singer Rory Rodriguez. As mentioned, Dark Sun is incredibly contemplative. „Dark Sun is a collection of songs that deeply explored my personal life over the last two years,“ Rodriguez previously shared. „Most of it is written about my father’s passing, about how it felt like the sun burned out the day he passed, and how the world is a little darker without him in it.“
DAYSEEKER are a quiet killer. The band has steadily built a buzz over the past several years — and they have reached a tipping point. DAYSEEKER built themselves into a scene standout with 2019’s Sleeptalk, which was hailed by Alternative Press as „a warm and welcome release to higher ground“ and as „much needed fresh air into the post-hardcore scene.“ The album has gone on to accumulate over 150 million streams, and it positioned the band as a formidable force — and one that is primed to take its next big leap. In 2021, the band dropped a deluxe version of Sleeptalk, featuring four reimagined versions of album tracks, which offered fans a fresh and unique take on songs they already love. It also demonstrated the depth and breadth of the band’s creative vision, scope, and possibilities. However, Dark Sun will be DAYSEEKER’s moment and is set to catapult the band beyond the scene’s stratosphere.
DAYSEEKER are back on the road this fall supporting Bad Omens. The tour kicks off on November 3 and runs through December 11.
