HUNDRED SUNS Feat. NORMA JEAN, EVERY TIME I DIE Members: Entire 'The Prestaliis' Album Streaming

"The Prestaliis", the debut album from HUNDRED SUNS — the trio featuring Cory Brandan (NORMA JEAN), Ryan Leger (EVERY TIME I DIE) and Chris LeMasters (DEAD & DIVINE) — can be streamed in its entirety in the YouTube playlist below. The disc, which was recorded with producer/engineer Sam Guaiana (LIKE PACIFIC), vocal engineer/producer Jeremy SH Griffith (NORMA JEAN, UNDEROATH), and producer/mixer (and SAOSIN guitarist) Beau Burchell (BLAQK AUDIO, THE BRONX), will be released on August 11 via New Damage Records.

The special album preview follows last week's release of the band's "Amaranthine" video and the announcement that the band is donating a portion of the song's sales proceeds to THORN, an organization that creates and supports tech initiatives that disrupt predatory behavior and work to make the internet a more hostile environment for those who seek to exploit children.

Fans can catch HUNDRED SUNS performing "Amaranthine" and more from the new album on their upcoming North American tour, which kicked off this past weekend.

HUNDRED SUNS drown themselves in doomy groove, bass-driven power, loud guitars, and surreal sonic tribalism, with reverent worship of classic darkly romantic alt-rock bands, the scorching intensity of underground music, and the melodic clarity of the more uncompromising radio trailblazers of decades past. But HUNDRED SUNS boast disparate elements from post-grunge to the mind-expanding meditative epics churned out by critical darling progressive rock in equal measure, fused into something freshly unique. In short, the band sounds both familiar and groundbreaking.

The trio responsible for HUNDRED SUNS are known for celebrating the heavier extremes of the art form with angst-fueled anthems heard around the world, in their respective projects, both past and present. But vocalist and lyricist Cory Brandan, powerhouse drummer Ryan Leger and principal songwriter/guitarist Chris LeMasters unlock grand mysteries with emotional resonance as HUNDRED SUNS, as evidenced all over their immersive and diverse debut album.

LeMasters assembled a massive stockpile of songs with Brandan's voice and sensibilities in mind after the duo got to know each other sharing a bus together while touring across Europe. As soon as the singer heard what would become "Fractional", he raced to his home recording setup to lay down ideas. Those early inspirations tracked as pre-production demos survived to the finished versions of many songs. Early adopters quickly embraced both "Fractional" and "Bedburner" (both released last year).
