Play Video


  • This ten minute song was the first track laid down by Palms for their eponymous debut album. Chino Moreno explained to Artist Direct: "We actually started with 'Mission Sunset' because it's the longest song. I wanted to attack the hardest one. It has the most parts in it. I knew if I could do that song, it'd all be downhill from there. It would at least be easier to figure out. We got that one out of the way first."
