David Ellefson’s EMP Label Group have announced the latest addition to their growing roster, female fronted Los Angeles hard Rock band HAIL SAGAN. Hail Sagan features powerhouse vocalist Sagan Amery, with a devilish masked group rumored to include guitarists Nick Quijano (Powerman 5000) and Andrew Weissberg.
Since forming in 2015, the band has amassed a monstrous fanbase, with over 125,000 followers across their social media, solidified further this month with the release of their debut video “Dark Cloud”. The clip, which debuted earlier this month via REVOLVER, has already gained over 80,000 views. The track, and video, which deals with the subject of abuse and bullying, has already resonated strongly with fans.
Amery says ‘ It’s been a great experience being able to broach the subject of bullying and abuse with the lyrics of this song. We took it one step further and created a video with director Matthew Crum and DP Kenny Keeler that visually enhanced the sensitive subject matter. We chose to mask the members of the band in an effort to show the world that anyone can be a part of this, you never know who will be under there, maybe even a fan or someone who needs music to save them.”
The band will release their self-titled debut EP in Fall 2016 on EMP LABEL GROUP, and will be available for pre-order later this month.
