We Are the Union is streaming a brand-new song called “I Want You To Hit Me As Hard As You Can” exclusively on PropertyOfZack.com. Along with the song stream, POZ has an interview with lead vocalist Reed Wolcott discussing a slight delay in the album’s release.
Due to a longer-than-expected mixing and mastering process, We Are the Union’s new LP, You Can’t Hide the Sun, has been pushed back two weeks to an October 16 release date via Paper + Plastick Records. The vinyl release of the album will be November 27.
You Can’t Hide the Sun is the follow-up to We Are the Union’s breakthrough LP, Great Leaps Forward. The band released a teaser EP for You Can’t Hide the Sun, a digital-only release titled Graveyard Grins, late in 2011. Fans of the band can expect to see the three original songs from Graveyard Grins on the new album as well.
