From the Across The Sun Facebook page
Below is the official press release from our team. We are truly saddened by these events, and hopefully, very soon, we will be back on the road with a fully-healthy band family. If the situation was not very serious, we would never cancel a show. Thank you as always for all your support! – Across The Sun
Across The Sun has announced that they will not be joining The Human Abstract on their upcoming Pull Me from the Gallows Tour. A statement from the band is below.
“We just came off the Atticus Black Young and Restless tour and had an amazing time, which makes the next sentence so hard. It is with great sadness and much deliberation that we have to cancel our run with The Human Abstract and Scale The Summit. As fans ourselves, we hate when a band is forced to miss planned dates, but do to a situation that affects the longevity and sound of Across The Sun, we have to take immediate action. When we have a further diagnosis and a second opinion, we will happily share the situation with all of you; the health of band members is not something we will take lightly. Missing these 2 weeks of shows with bands we personally love to listen to has been one of the hardest decisions we have had to make as a band. Our new album BEFORE THE NIGHT TAKES US is out, and we belong on the road with our fans, but in an effort to make sure Across The Sun is around for the long haul, we have to address this situation now.”
Before The Night Takes Us is available everywhere now and has been incredibly well received by fans and press. The album was recorded with Daniel Castleman at Lambesis Studios in San Diego, CA and released March 15th, 2011.
“[A] captivating mix of heartfelt lyrics and heavy melodic guitars…weaved from dexterous sweep arpeggios, powerful vocals” RevolverMag.com
“Stuttering guitars and tasteful keys unravel the group’s musical red carpet for – those pipes! Unapologetically placed to the front of the mix, the vocals of Brandon Davis both dazzle and distress, similar in delivery to Mutiny Within’s Chris Clancy and Killswitch Engage’s Howard Jones.” TheNewReview.net
“Getting ten tracks up and down in 40 minutes is an impressive feat, particularly when there is so much material packed into each chunk. No song runs over five minutes –Across the Sun’s songwriting certainly is focused – and yet each cut has enough twists and surprises to seem like a ten minute epic.” 4/5 Metal Underground
