Dance Gavin Dance, A Lot Like Birds, Hail The Sun,...

Posted by: Jack Appleby (07/24/13)
Dance Gavin Dance guitarist Will Swan, A Lot Like Birds drummer Joseph Arrington and bassist Michael Littlefield, Hail The Sun vocalist Donovan Melero, and Stolas guitarist Sergio Medina have formed a new band: Sianvar (pronounced sea-en-var). The band is writing in Sacramento, prepping 5 songs to record with producer Josh Benton (Secret Band, Hail The Sun), to be released as soon as they can. The band is yet to determine whether the EP will be a self-release or label release.

Joseph Arrington is a BEAST on the drums.

Pretty hyped for this.

Slightly related, but whatever happened to the Will Swan, Zach Garren, Matt Geise, Loniel Robinson project from last year? Did I miss something?

Seriously though - big fan of all things Will Swan. That ALLB and Stolas record sounded eerily similar so I hope they don't take that path. Also, a Will Swan project without Mingus drumming has to be a first.

I think Donovan on vocals excites me the most. The technical ability in this band is absolutely astounding though.

But I still need new Hail the Sun

THIS. I was so stoked on that project and Garren was getting everyone really hype in the news thread for it if I remember....and then radio silence.

I love when people are friends and make music together just cause they like each other and I'm guessing that's what this is.

I'm hoping they go the route of the Sound of Animals Fighting and get all weird with it

Donovan from Hail the Sun is a fucking machine. If you haven't seen Hail the Sun live, do it now. Dude can belt and play really fucking good drums at the same time.
