One week ahead of their highly-anticipated new full length, Mental Knife, Hail The Sun have released a scorching new single “Glass: Half Empty” alongside an official video for the track. ”Glass: Half Empty” provides some of the most maniacal moments we’ll see on Mental Knife – alternating between moments of visceral screams and mind-blowing guitars and ethereal finger-picking over which singer/drummer, Donovan Melero, shows his command of melody. The vibrant colors and cheerfulness of the video provide a striking contrast to the message and overall tones of “Glass: Half Empty” as a song. You can watch the video now on YouTube.
Donovan adds this regarding the single/video:
“’I’m very grateful for everything I’ve ever been given or earned. I count my blessings on a daily basis. However, I feel as though the obsession to always want ‘more’ has always plagued me. The harder it is to get…the more out of reach it seems… the more I want it. And if and when that is achieved, it’s like my mind solely decides that it’s time to crave something else. Or even worse, I realize I no longer want it, and never did.”
