Hail Sagan have premiered a new video for their new song “Haterbait.” This track will appear on the band’s new EP.
Frontwoman Sagan Amery commented:
“We’re all aware that bullying exists. It’s shoved down our throats every time we use social media, or go online. Every comment section, every post is plagued by people crushing each other verbally. And for what? To waste time? To fight over politics? Who has that much time on this planet that they want to waste it hurting each other? I’ve had to deal with big mouthed, keyboard warriors, ones who make false claims, or stir the pot and run away, and I’d rather not fight with them on a post. I’d rather them come tell me in person about how they feel. But cowards hide behind screens, so we one-upped them with a song and video. It’s basically an invitation to put up or shut up.”
She also added:
“I am very fond of old school hardcore music, it’s something that, along with punk, defined my childhood and teenage years. I came from a place in the world where people were raised to be very direct, so this new way of being rude to each other online, making a post, and running away, doesn’t really work for me. So we went hard on this song, both lyrically, and melodically. Everything else we’ve done has been more artistic, so we wanted a gritty, street kind of feel to the video, which I think we achieved.”

Hail Sagan have premiered a new video for their single “Doors Will Open,” via puregrainaudio.com. The song is available via CD Baby and Amazon, and it will also be featured in the new video game “Wreckfest,” which will be released next year.
The band commented:
“The song is a heavier track compared to most of what we have released in the past; we feel it celebrates our roots as people who enjoy listening to a harder genre of music, while displaying our ability to be diverse musicians. After being involved in co-production of our last few videos, we were very interested in giving it a try ourselves, and seeing if we were able to apply what we had learned to the new music video for ‘Doors Will Open.’ Both of us are artists so we wanted to approach the visuals from a creative surreal perspective. We had a lot of fun designing the various sequences of the storyline, and we learned a lot about filming through trial and error. Overall, it was a great experience and we look forward to expanding our abilities in film and incorporating it with the music we release in the future.”
