Published Dec 01, 2015Bringing their stoner rock out of their Hamilton, ON, garages and into the wider world, Pet Sun are ready to drop their new EP Shade Driver next week. Exclaim! is giving you a chance to hear the entire thing a little bit early, though.
The three-song offering hears the band churning out grunge-y riffs that are peppered with equal parts pop and doom. Dark but melodic opener "Dark Planet" is described by the band as their "apocalyptic headbanger," while "Zenifer" puts their pop sensibilities in the spotlight before wrapping up the set with "Mrs. Warp." Despite its "creepy tones," the band maintain that it is, indeed, a love song.
Shade Driver officially arrives as a 7-inch on December 4 and is available for pre-order, but you can hear the heavy, fuzzed-out trio of tracks in the player below right now. To celebrate the EP's release, Pet Sun will play Toronto's Hard Luck on December 7.
