Southern California’sÂ DayseekerÂ share theÂ twinkling video for the latestÂ single Crying While You’re Dancing. The bandÂ will drop their new album ‘Dark Sun’ on November 4 viaÂ Spinefarm Records.
Crying While You’re Dancing drills down on the album’s incredibly personal concept. “Crying While You’re Dancing is about those people you know who pretend to have the time of their lives while it’s clear to everyone around them that they’re spiralling,” says singerÂ Rory Rodriguez.
‘Dark Sun’ itself is incredibly contemplative. “Dark Sun is a collection of songs that deeply explored my personal life over the last two years,” Rodriguez previously shared. “Most of it is written about my father’s passing, about how it felt like the sun burned out the day he passed, and how the world is a little darker without him in it.“
Dayseeker are a quiet killer. The band has steadily built a buzz over the past several years â€” and they have reached a tipping point. Dayseeker built themselves into a scene standout with 2019’s ‘Sleeptalk’, which was hailed byÂ Alternative PressÂ asÂ “a warm and welcome release to higher ground” and as “much needed fresh air into the post-hardcore scene.”
DayseekerÂ made a massive impression on Australian audiences on their first ever trip down under in July,Â playing main support forÂ ThornhillÂ alongsideÂ GravemindÂ andÂ Banks ArcadeÂ on the wildly successfulÂ ‘Heroine Live Across Australia’ tour. Due to popular demand, Dayseeker added and debuted an exclusive Australian headline show to a packed out Stay Gold inÂ Melbourne withÂ alt.Â andÂ The Last Martyr, performing ‘Sleeptalk’ in full forÂ the first time inÂ Australia.
The album has gone on to accumulate over 150 million streams, and it positioned the band as a formidable force â€” and one that is primed to take its next big leap. In 2021, the band dropped a deluxe version of ‘Sleeptalk’, featuring four reimagined versions of album tracks, which offered fans a fresh and unique take on songs they already love. It also demonstrated the depth and breadth of the band’s creative vision, scope, and possibilities.
However, ‘Dark Sun’ will be Dayseeker‘s moment and is set to catapult the band beyond the scene’s stratosphere.Â Dayseeker are back on the road this November supporting Bad Omens across the US.Â
