Hail The Sun released their fourth LP, Mental Knife in 2018. The album heavily explores the idealistic desire to surgically remove the less-than-desirable aspects of our behavior and personalities.
Following Melero’s 10-year sobriety, Mental Knife centers on the lessons he learned from overcoming addiction and battling his inner demons to become a better person and a musician. Inspired by the idea of cutting out the undesirable aspects of our personality and behavior, the album manifests how he processed his emotions through struggle, reflecting back on his journey to sobriety.
