"Secret Wars is, in essence, a more aggressive extension of Culture Scars," says vocalist and drummer Donovan Melero. "Those who have been reading between the lines may have even noticed subtle hints alluding to this new EP in the liner notes for Culture Scars. We came up with this idea during the recording of Culture Scars, so this is something over a year and half in the making. 

"Secret Wars is meant to acknowledge all those battles that are kept behind closed doors. There may always be a force working against us, by our own chemistry, or by those who supposedly have the public's best interest in mind."

Hail The Sun's Secret Wars EP will be out Nov. 10, and you can pre-order it here
