Cane Hill Announce ‘Semi-Acoustic’ EP “Kill The Sun”, Share Video For Title Track


Cane Hill have announced a January 18th release date for their new ‘semi-acoustic’ EP “Kill The Sun” via Rise Records. Sessions for the effort took place this past summer with producer Kris Crummett (Dance Gavin Dance, Issues). The band said of the release in a collective statement:

“We spent the summer working on new Cane Hill music. We’ve embraced the weirder and mellower side of what we do, as it’s something we think is important to our band. With that in mind, we’ve been in the studio with the incredibly talented Kris Crummett, working on music that embellishes those elements. It’s six songs of dark, twisted, and semi-acoustic beauty. We’re incredibly proud of it and can’t wait for you to hear it.

We wanted to embrace some leftover emotions we’ve been dealing with since getting our shit together while exploring our own musical limitations. We made this semi-acoustic record because we needed to for ourselves — and because honestly, why the fuck not?”

A music video for the title track has premiered and can be seen below. Frontman Elijah Witt elaborated on the track itself:

“We wanted our first single from this album to be as big of a curveball as possible. ‘Kill The Sun‘ is as far of a departure from our usual ‘heavy metal anthem’ leadoff as we could get. Like, who knew Devin [Clark] could play the saxophone?! This track is about my constant self-sabotage; my tendency to find happiness and just as quickly finding a way to ruin it. There’s a very loud voice in my head that feeds me to the wolves I created, effectively killing any light in my life. And deep down, there’s a part of me that relishes in the misery.”

The EP will feature the following songs:

01 – “86d – No Escort
02 – “Empty
03 – “Save Me
04 – “Kill The Sun
05 – “Acid Rain
06 – “Smoking Man

The band will be touring with Sevendust, Tremonti and more on this North American Tour in early 2019.
