Cemetery Sun will release their powerful and catchy new single ‘Supernatural’ this Friday, June 12. It’s a showcase of the Sacramento band’s dynamic, genre-defying sound: weaving elements of brooding alt.rock and sleek alternative pop into something that’s ready-made for the world’s biggest stages. “‘Supernatural’ is a song pertaining to facing yourself for who you really are, a song that focuses on liberation,” explains vocalist Josh Doty. “To become new again.”

It’s just the start of the band’s plans for 2020, with a string of releases pencilled in for the remainder of the year. “As the guys and I approach the second half of 2020, we plan to release numerous tracks blending an array of sounds and influences we’ve finally had time to appreciate,” Josh adds. “Even though touring has slowed for the time being, you can still look forward to the progression of Cemsun.”
The band’s debut UK headline show has been rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and will now take place at London’s The Grace on June 03, 2021. They are also set to tour the UK in support of Set It Off. — Embracing the post-genre world with a unique cocktail of hooks, heart and restless creativity, Sacramento’s Cemetery Sun have consistently evolved and blazed their own trail since forming back in 2015.
From the anthemic overtones and unfiltered lyrics of breakthrough single ‘Fake Love’ (which has racked up well over 13 million plays on Spotify) to the bittersweet alt-rock that made 2019’s ‘Haunted’ EP so compelling, they’ve spent the last few years combining Californian sunshine, R&B flourishes and sheer, emotional catharsis like no one else – sharing stages with Blink-182, The Maine, Papa Roach and so many more along the way.
Drawing on the interplay of Josh Doty’s dynamic vocals, Matt Scarpelli’s lead guitar lines and Elliot Polokoff’s skills as both guitarist and producer, they’ve earned comparisons to the likes of Twenty One Pilots and Linkin Park without ever riding in anyone else’s slipstream. Yet there’s far more to the world of Cemetery Sun than their music alone: Josh tackling his stories of struggle and overcoming adversity head-on, and encouraging fans to grab life with both hands.
After making their Reading & Leeds Festival debut in 2019 and engaging their fanbase with content and covers through the uncertain times of 2020, they’ll be bringing us all more music as the year rolls on – operating as a truly independent, innovative band following a successful stint on Lava Records. And in the process? They’ll be aiming to shine some light and hope into the lives of everyone who needs it.
