Invent Animate Sign With UNFD, Debut New Song “The Sun Sleeps”


Invent Animate have made the jump to UNFD and will have their new EP “The Sun Sleeps, As If It Never Was” out on September 23rd. A first single by the name of “The Sun Sleeps” has arrived as the first single from that EP ahead of time.

The band’s drummer Trey Celaya drew inspiration from a drug addiction crisis in his own family:

“I think people are learning in the modern day it’s not as simple as ‘this is just a bad person, and they were addicted to drugs and they did it to themselves’, there’s always a string of trauma and things that are not dealt with and stigmatised mental health that sets off a spiral. Even if one person is clearly in the wrong, it doesn’t exempt them from being a victim in another sense.”

The track “As If It Never Was” will continue that theme, shifting focus to the impact of drug addiction. Speaking of the concept of the EP as a whole, Celaya offered:

“Despite all attempts to keep our darker reality shadowed in secrecy, there comes a moment in time when the truth can no longer be hidden behind closed doors or empty excuses. And at once, everything is revealed, as if the Light is a constant law of nature laying bare the secrets we believe are ours to keep. In this infinite moment, the bond shared between two loved ones is severed.

The flow of time does not wash away the scars, it only immortalises what is suspended in the balance – the pain of loss, the gift of hindsight, and the curse of hope. What will always be a memory. This EP is a true story of addiction and the trauma that lies in its aftermath of a secret too dark to be hidden.”
