“Hail The Sun have gotten the chance to support some of our favorite bands on some of our favorite tours over the last few years,” vocalist/drummer Donovan Melero says.
“So we are so thrilled to be able to headline a tour taking out some of our closest friends and getting to play a longer set.”

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.
