As the latest recording from international psyche-doom unit HAUNTED arrives, “Dayburner“, the band is also premiering a new official video.
“Mourning Sun” was directed by Teresa Elizabeth Lobos, it provides some stimulating, frightening imagery to accompany the HAUNTED heaviness. The song is the second single to arrive from last week’s (June 8) Twin Earth Records release, “Dayburner“.
Singer Christina Chimirri shared the following about the new single: “When I wrote the lyrics of Mourning Sun, I thought about the “feeling of Death” which sometimes comes over us inexplicably. It’s a kind of call to the other side, that a lot of people live like a hallucination in a dream. Then there’s a will to generate the nightmare, the darkness, the night. Aim to the sun and turn it off.”
Drummer Dario Casabona adds: “The ‘incipit’ of a journey that only lasts a day, to the dark.”
“Dayburner” is available in different formats:
Limited Edition VINYL/2LP will arrive this fall via DHU Records
