The immediacy of Hideous Sun Demon’s thrashing brand of psych-punk music has returned in all its glory, with the release of their new single, ‘Antithesis’.
Capturing hectic riffs and frenetic percussion in a tightly produced number, ‘Antithesis’ is the dose of musical chaos from Hideous Sun Demon that will satiate the appetite of fans and newcomers alike.
The premiere of ‘Antithesis’ comes with the announcement of Hideous Sun Demon’s third studio album, ‘FAME, EROTIC, DREAM’, set to be released on July 27th. The foundations already laid by the band on previous releases Industry Connections (2016) and Sweat (2013) have been impressively built upon with this new collection of material; the WA trio have gone further in exploring some blistering soundscapes, all the while upping their artistry and talent as instrumentalists. As ‘Antithesis’ brilliantly demonstrates, Hideous Sun Demon are generating their best musical energy yet, channelled through Vincent Buchanan-Simpson’s lead vocal, not to mention the penetrative rhythm section courtesy of Jake Suriano andBlake Hart. “‘Antithesis’ is one of our most explosive tracks we’ve written; inspired by a certain kind of person who does malevolent or selfish things under the guise of good intention.”
– Hideous Sun Demon
Matching the intensity of the music, the official music video for ‘Antithesis’ takes the viewer on a warped trip through the streets, on top of roofs, on train tracks and more with the band. Directed by Billy Bowen, the ‘Antithesis’ video serves as a timely reminder of Hideous Sun Demon’s status as one of the West Coast’s most indomitable young bands in recent memory.
“Hideous Sun Demon are an unstoppable machine, pumping out huge, crunchy riffs from every angle and barely stopping to take a breather.” – Tone Deaf (Industry Connections, 2016)
“The track, ‘Hard Out’, makes its mark straight out of the gate with frenetic drums and stabbing guitar disguising the sneaky psych vibes that explode towards the end of the song.”
– The Music (‘Hard Out’, 2017)
“The group’s latest is an impulsive attack on ferocious psych-rock that spares no mortal in its destructive path.” – AAA Backstage (‘Hard Out’, 2017)
