Today, California based trio Cemetery Sun shared their dynamic new single and video “IDNUA”. The song will appear on their upcoming album ASCENSION, out October 8th on Velocity Records. “IDNUA” fuses the bands pop-punk and active rock leanings with lush electronics and radio-friendly production. The soaring vocal performance is perfectly supported by layers of guitars and a catchy, high octane beat that drives the song forward into a hard hitting chorus. The lyrics explore the dynamics of letting go of a toxic relationship and the painful process of self realization, a theme that is prevalent throughout the upcoming album.

On the theme behind “IDNUA”, vocalist Josh Doty had this to say: “It’s easy to feel trapped by trauma or past mistakes.. especially when you doubt yourself. This song embodies also how difficult it can be to let go when those feelings consume us. The day you can say ‘I don’t need you anymore’ is the day you’ve finally let go.”

On ASCENSION, Cemetery Sun explores themes of mental health and complex relationship dynamics, with introspective lyricism that feels personal yet relatable. The band recorded 90% of the album at their home studio, which not only allowed them to have complete artistic freedom and direction, but it provided them time to hone their desired sound without being pigeon-holed into one specific genre. Citing everyone from Linkin Park to The Neighbourhood as influences, the band exemplifies a diverse range of sounds across the ten songs on the album. From radio-rock friendly tracks like “IDNUA” and “Chemical Warfare” to the catchy pop-punk vibe of “Heartbreak Kid” featuring fast-rising emo-rapper LiL Lotus, ASCENSION is sure to be a breath of fresh air in a scene that has been yearning for the kind of innovation.
