Today, California-based progressive post-hardcore outfit, Hail The Sun, announced a fall North American tour. Following tours with Circa Survive, Dance Gavin Dance, The Fall of Troy, and Polyphia, this marks the first time the band headlines the stage since the release of their latest album, Mental Knife, giving fans a much anticipated full experience of their explosive live show. Starting September 13th in Sacramento, CA, the band will make their way across the United States and Canada with support from their friends in Strawberry Girls, Royal Coda, and VIS. All dates are listed below and pre-sale tickets are available now at, with public on-sale June 7th at 10AM local time at

Since finding sobriety ten years ago, Donovan Melero, the vocalist and drummer for Hail The Sun, has found himself constantly consumed with the idea of making the most of every day. Melero – along with bandmates Aric Garcia (guitar), John Stirrat (bass) and Shane Gann (guitar) – manage both the creative and business sides of Hail The Sun as they continue to grow into one of the most revered acts in their genre. On their latest album Mental Knife, released last fall on Equal Vision Records, the band elevated their already impressive style of play, pushing the limit of what is capable when walking the delicate line between intricate song arrangement, massive riffs, and thundering rhythms. This translates into the band’s charismatic live show, finding Melero switching from vocal duties behind the drumkit to front and center, as the full band exudes an energy that demands the audience’s attention. Formed in 2009, Hail The Sun joined the Equal Vision Records roster in 2016 with the release of their genre-blending album Culture Scars followed by the Secret Wars EP (2017). You can stream their latest full-length, Mental Knife, now on YouTube or Spotify.
