Portland, Oregon s Across The Sun has been recording and touring for over seven years since their inception in 2004. They have recorded and released three EPs during that time: 2006 s This War, 2008 s Storms Weathered and the highly acclaimed Pestilence & Rapture, which was released via Authentik Ink in 2009. Throughout 2010, the band completed several full US tours, including the Loch Ness Monstour with No Bragging Rights, a tour supporting Throw The Fight, dates on the New England Metal and Hardcore fest, Transmission Fest, and more. Thei hard work paid off late in the year when they inked a deal with Metal Blade Records. Soon after this landmark in the band s career, Brandon Davis, Shane The Brain Murray, Sam Hafer, Alan Ashcraft and John Malloy entered Lambesis Studios with producer/engineer Daniel Castleman (As I Lay Dying, Winds of Plague, Impending Doom).
The result of Across The Sun s time with Castleman is their first full length album, Before The Night Takes Us. The album is the culmination of seven years of recording, touring and polishing their sound. Daniel Castleman held each member to a high standard in the studio; It was an amazing learning experience; no previous Across The Sun recording process has ever been this in depth. As a vocalist, it was extremely humbling when Daniel commented that I was one of the most consistent and talented that he s ever worked with , adds Brandon Davis. The individual performances are better than any previous Across The Sun release.
