"Just last year, we featured Pushing The Sun on our 12 Days of Bands You Have To Know. In case you missed it, check it out here: Day 10 goes to Pushing The Sun. This is one band that really made an impression upon us from first seeing them perform at the Rockstar Uproar Festival in 2013.

"So Gene Simmons obviously has never heard of Pushing the Sun. Rock and Roll, people, is not dead. It lives inside us all big or small and there will be times that it may seem dead, but Rock is like a caged up animal. Bands like Pushing The Sun hold the keys to unlocking that cage. They release the beasts and if you don’t believe me, let me hear you tell that to Pushing The Sun, who, in my opinion, are well on their way to proving Gene Simmons and all the naysayers wrong. Rock and Roll will never die and it sure as hell will never be noise pollution. Keep kicking ass and moving forward fellas, you have gained a new fan. I thank you for the hard work and dedication you put in to provide us fans with pure energy Rock and Roll from the soul. "
“These heavy yet diverse with brilliant melodic rock qualities are exceptionally defined for a full-packaged sound! Their is real overall musicianship rock talent here and feel there are promising prospects in getting quality music appreciators into their rock music platforms.

“Their recent full length album debut House of Lights is a tasty recipe of great melodies, soulful vocals, infectious grooves, sick riffs and great hooks. The riffs are heavy and of face melting quality when needed, but at other times, they’re slowed down to prove that sometimes less is more.”
“Complete with chugging guitars, dynamic drums, and charismatic vocals, California rock band Pushing the Sun displays a raw passion that channels into addictive melodies.

“Day 10 of our 12 Days of Bands You Have to Know goes to the heavy melodic rock band, Pushing the Sun. Pushing the Sun is from the San Francisco Bay Area and they literally have exploded on to the music scene and have created quite a buzz. Their motto, “We will light up your life, we have fire in our hands!” definitely rings true.”
“With old school influences like Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath sitting alongside bands from the 90s such as Alice In Chains, Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots – San Francisco Bay Area-based band Pushing The Sun are self-described as heavy melodic dynamic rock, but don’t confine their sound to one era influence-wise. Their tracks echo of them of course, but it’s a modern adaptation of sorts.”
