Cane Hill Share Surprising Title Track Of New Album 'Kill The Sun'

Friday, 16 November 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Cane Hill have shared the title track of their new album.

'Kill The Sun' is due to drop on January 18 through Rise Records, who also released this year's 'Too Far Gone'. In a statement about the record, the band said:

"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?” 

Speaking about the title track, vocalist Elijah Witt said:

“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, drums] 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.” 

As the band say themselves, the track is a surprise move. It's a much more subtle approach than we're used to from the New Orleans metallers, with finger-picked guitar replacing distorted power chords and harmonised vocals instead of brutal bellows. Check it out below.

Cane Hill will return to the UK in December to support ​Bury Tomorrow on their winter tour.
