New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Following the release of his highly anticipated "Flames [Acoustic]" video featuring Avril Lavigne, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter-producer MOD SUN releases his new 'Internet Killed the Rockstar' Deluxe
Album via Big Noise.
The new album features eight new tracks including acoustic renditions of Internet
Killed The Rockstar singles and original studio releases. The powerful and emotional 19-track collection unlocks a new chapter of MOD's decade-long career and sees the "authentic" (PAPER) artist at an all-time high.
MOD SUN will make his national tv debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Wednesday, May 12th performing "Flames
" for the first time alongside Avril Lavigne.
"I'm in a state right now where I'm feeling grateful, but also a sense of redemption," says MOD SUN. "That I was doing the right thing the whole time. To be this far into my career, and being at the highest point that I've been at so far, is right down to the basis of why I do everything I do in art."
