BRIGHTER THAN A THOUSAND SUNS - Releases Lead Single/Video From New EP

Synth-rock/post-hardcore outfit Brighter Than A Thousand Suns has premiered the lead single from their forthcoming EP as a music video. The track, entitled "One Sided Soul," is the leadoff track from Rebirth that will be releasing November 30th. This year marks the band's eighth year, and eleventh overall, together.

"Our fans were missing our more aggressive side and so were we. It was needed to underscore our recent experiences with things like heart break, communication breakdown and the state of our world at large. We had something of a reawakening making this EP. Hence the title 'Rebirth'. We realized that this is the best way we communicate and connect with others and that is why we do this. Rediscovering our “why’ definitely recharged us to want to make music for people who feel it speaks for part of who they are or at least holds up a mirror to their experience.” - Randy Roswell (Guitars/Programming/Synthesizers)

Starting in 2007 and adopting a post-hardcore sound, Brighter Than A Thousand Suns had already graced the pages of Alternative Press and taken national tours before catching the attention of Tragic Hero Records, a partnership which yielded the band’s 2011 full-length entitled Survival Machines. After leaving Tragic Hero Records, the band gradually shifted away from their straight-up post-hardcore beginnings to incorporate more of an 80’s synth rock sound to accompany their darker aggressive side. During that period, they released two EPs , 2013’s The End of Suffering, 2014’s Flux, and a host of singles. As members came and went, the core of the band has always stayed the same: the husband and wife duo of Angelika and Randy Roswell. While their musical path partly brought them to where they are now, the duo’s move from their lifelong home of Connecticut to North Carolina was a key catalyst to Brighter Than A Thousands Suns developing an interesting and new sonic approach. The combination of the group’s heavier side with electronic-rock elements reached its pinnacle on their EP The Way Out, which was released in 2017. Choosing to push the boundaries of their purely aggressive side and give their electronic components more of a back seat, the duo now offers Rebirth, a new EP that sees them return to their heavier roots, this time with a progressive metal-like diversity.
