Album release: Emergence by The Sun Explodes
Release date: May 7 2012

Heavy rock quintet The Sun Explodes create a genre-defying mix of crushing riffs, sweeping melody and pulsating electronica in this their debut album Emergence. It is a record that classes them as a truly original and burgeoning force on the UK rock scene.

Their first year as a band saw them travel the length of Britain showcasing their epic and frenetic live performances. These gigs, aggressive and energetic though they were, demonstrated a level of technical quality matched by few new bands. It was these gigs that garnered them a fierce fan base and strong online presence. Now the band have honed their sound into a sophisticated and compelling album recording.

Heavy metal, metalcore, synth rock, prog’ll hear an amalgamation of styles on this album, but it is precisely these experimentations (teamed with their proficiency in production) which help shape the band’s identity and will earn them groundbreaking status. The proliferation of identikit, interchangeable groups in today’s rock scene makes The Sun Explodes’ music a breath of fresh air.
