Invent Animate Sign With UNFD, Announce New EP “The Sun Sleeps, As If It Never Was”

Invent Animate have signed a new deal with UNFD. The band will be releasing a new EP, titled “The Sun Sleeps, As If It Never Was,” through the label on September 23. The effort’s first single, “The Sun Sleeps,” can be found below:

The following was said about the EP in a press release:

“Searingly close to drummer Trey Celaya and his family’s story navigating a drug addiction crisis, it comprises a one-two punch of songs describing both perspectives of this tragic and deeply painful scenario. The first track, today’s “The Sun Sleeps” sheds light on the story from the perspective of the drug affected, meanwhile the accompanying “As If It Never Was” explores the view of those left reeling in the sphere of impact of drug addiction.”

Celaya continued:

“Despite all attempts to keep our darker reality shadowed in secrecy, there comes a moment in time when the truth can no longer be hidden behind closed doors or empty excuses. And at once, everything is revealed, as if the Light is a constant law of nature laying bare the secrets we believe are ours to keep. In this infinite moment, the bond shared between two loved ones is severed. The flow of time does not wash away the scars, it only immortalizes what is suspended in the balance – the pain of loss, the gift of hindsight, and the curse of hope. What will always be a memory. This EP is a true story of addiction and the trauma that lies in its aftermath of a secret too dark to be hidden.”

He also added the following about the new song:

“We wanted to explore both sides of a deeply painful situation, and to draw out how nuanced and weird and difficult these things can be. I think people are learning in the modern day it’s not as simple as ‘this is just a bad person, and they were addicted to drugs and they did it to themselves’, there’s always a string of trauma and things that are not dealt with and stigmatized mental health that sets off a spiral. Even if one person is clearly in the wrong, it doesn’t exempt them from being a victim in another sense.”
