Experimental metal band With Our Arms To The Sun rolled through town on February 10 in support of Rob Zombie guitarist John 5, who is currently on his first major solo instrumental tour. I caught up with the band at DNA Lounge before the show to see what’s up. We discussed how aliens named the band, their unique take on metal, and their hopes to tour with Walt Disney in 2016.
With Our Arms To The Sun’s A Far Away Wonder was easily one of the most exciting metal or post-metal releases of 2014. Fans of King Crimson, Tool, Isis, and space travel will especially dig it. You can get a copy on their website, withourarmstothesun.com.
