Edisun tour dates have just been announced throughout the USA in October, supporting the success of their recent single, “Refugees.” An edited-for-radio revamp of a track called “Voices,” the new single has been getting spin on national active rock FM stations as well as Spotify and several streaming outlets.
“It was a unique strategy to get people’s attention for our new record—but the lyrics seem to have taken on a new meaning for people, associating it with a number of world events, like the plight of the Yazidi refugees (ethnic group being persecuted by ISIS). It’s been an amazing journey seeing it take on a new life,” said Isaac.
“We were the first rock band they sent...we flew from base to base on Blackhawk helicopters, helmets, body armor, and Marines playing air-guitar to our music on M16 rifles. It was terrifying, and surreal,” said Madison-WI native vocalist Ethan Isaac.
The band received citations from the Pentagon and USO, were featured in Rolling Stone Magazine, and interviewed on ABC World News Tonight—before they had even recorded a single demo.
“I had written a song called “Into the Sunlight,” Isaac says, “about my experiences in New York City on 9-11. That caught their attention and they asked us to perform it for the troops.”
Another powerful song would come from their time abroad: “Ready to Believe,” a rock anthem that has been a feature-favorite of NBC-Sportscaster Dan Patrick, used in multiple ESPN sports-related clips, and even cited to be the personal theme song of US Olympian Kelly Gunther. Distributed by Sony Electronics--pre-formatted on all their Mp3 players since 2010, the song was released as part of the band’s self-titled debut album on EMI, which featured two Billboard "Active Rock" Top 40 songs - "Medicate" and "Wide Awake."
