MP3: “Hate the Sun” by Lusk

This track has apparently been floating around for years, but it just recently came to our attention. Lusk’s Free Mars is one of our favorite, but tragically unknown, records from an equally unknown project. I remember severely overpaying for a copy of the album on eBay years ago and later realizing how worth it that purchase was. Lusk is a supergroup from the mid-90s comprised of Paul D’Amour (ex-Tool), Chris Pittman (Guns n’ Roses, SexTapes), Greg Edwards (ex-Failure, Autolux), and Brad Laner. Free Mars’ 1997 release was a commercial failure but was nominated for a Grammy for Best Recording Package in 1998 and featured several guest performances, including Danny Carey of Tool. “Hate the Sun” is a song from a four-track EP the band never released. It’s difficult to imagine why, as the track is as good as anything on the brilliant Free Mars. Download “Hate the Sun” by Lusk here or stream it below:
