“Their recent full length album debut House of Lights is a tasty recipe of great melodies, soulful vocals, infectious grooves, sick riffs and great hooks. The riffs are heavy and of face melting quality when needed, but at other times, they’re slowed down to prove that sometimes less is more.” - Johnny Price, Rock Revolt Magazine (Apr 30, 2014)

"Pushing the Sun"

“Complete with chugging guitars, dynamic drums, and charismatic vocals, California rock band Pushing the Sun displays a raw passion that channels into addictive melodies. Maintaining an active live show presence including an opening show for Rockstar Uproar, the 5-piece injects an unmistakable and unmatched energy into their music. Beginning in 2012, the band has already begun to establish a name for itself, garnering more fans and attention as they continue to expand. With a dominating sound and an inspiring vitality, Pushing the Sun is forging a solid future in the rock genre.” - Step 3 Entertainment (Jan 07, 2014)

"Day 10 of 12 Days of Bands You Have to Know goes to Pushing the Sun"

“Day 10 of our 12 Days of Bands You Have to Know goes to the heavy melodic rock band, Pushing the Sun. Pushing the Sun is from the San Francisco Bay Area and they literally have exploded on to the music scene and have created quite a buzz. Their motto, “We will light up your life, we have fire in our hands!” definitely rings true.” - Marisol, Music Junkie Press (Dec 18, 2013)

"Pushing The Sun"

“With old school influences like Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath sitting alongside bands from the 90s such as Alice In Chains, Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots – San Francisco Bay Area-based band Pushing The Sun are self-described as heavy melodic dynamic rock, but don’t confine their sound to one era influence-wise. Their tracks echo of them of course, but it’s a modern adaptation of sorts.” - Maggie Sapet, AMN Australian Musician Network (Dec 01, 2013)


Pushing the Sun - House of Lights (full length album) 2014



Bringing light to your life with fire in their hands- Guitarist Billy
Connally launched Pushing the Sun in 2012. After his successful
instrumental album release, The Silent Canvas on Steve Vai's Digital
Nations label, Connally was ready to return to his roots — a rock band
with a charismatic lead vocalist. Releasing a 3 song ep and a music
video for their song Tragic Love, the band has rapidly gained
momentum playing a ton of gigs in Northern California including an
opening slot for Rockstar Uproar when it came to the Shoreline
Amphitheater. Pushing the Sun worked with producer Tim Narducci
(Systematic & SpiralArms) on their upcoming full length album “House
of Lights” which is scheduled to be released in January of 2014. Their
music can be described as a balance of musicianship and songwriting that
is constantly evolving and dynamic, while still maintaining songs rich
with addictive riffs and catchy hooks. Pushing the Sun consists of
Andrew Saman on Vocals, Billy Connally on Guitar, A.J. Curtis on Drums,
Johaan Hill on Bass and Neil Hagge on Keys.
