Chase the Sun is an American Art-Metal band that hails from the musically fertile Northwest.
The four track EP titled “Divine Mourning” was released January 28th, 2020. Creating enduring songs is what drives CTS, and currently the band is emerging with elements of British Heavy Metal, Hard Rock, and Progressive/Technical Metal leanings while modeling none of these directly. Taking these and various other influences as reference points, the band subsequently forges it's own unique voice, ignoring trends and refusing to mirror the past, or cater to the present musical climate.
The relationship between the band and the established music industry is currently encouraging as CTS enters into the initial phase of the overall project. The 2020 EP “Divine Mourning” was self-published through Chase the Sun Records and was tracked/mixed/mastered at Amplified Wax Studio and Jimmy Hill. An additional early 2020 EP will also be self-published, tracking was finished in February 2020 at Amplified Wax Studio with a release date in late Spring 2020.
