Pull Down The Sun - MNZ Interview: The Distorted Transmission 045: Pull Down The Sun

26 Jan 2022 // An interview by Will Stairmand




Top lads Pull Down the Sun have an epic chat about the international rerelease of their double vinyl, funny injury stories, plans for the future... not one to miss! Will's camera was being a bit of an out of focus dick, but the banter was solid, which is what matters.


 

About Pull Down The Sun

Having played up and down their beautiful country, PDTS are no strangers to New Zealand. Boasting an international standard of modern metal, they have been hand picked to support many local and international acts. PDTS bring a wondrous reference frame of late 90's Deftones style riff mastery, coupled with modern influences of metal elites such as Gojira and Isis. In doing so, Pull Down the Sun creates a glorious set of imagery that holds true to sheer riff obedience, making motions from heavy and erratic, to dark and moody, through to light and uplifting with minimal effort.

Their journey through to 2020 brings us their debut album Of Valleys and Mountains.

Dropping on 12/09/20, Of Valleys and Mountains is a colourful concept album that channels their Maori heritage, exploring local legends that have been passed down through generations. PDTS’s debut album is centered around the Maori myths of the Patupaiarehe and the Turehu, an aboriginal people absorbed by Polynesian immigrants to New Zealand 1000 years ago.
