The New Album

Eclipse by The Sonic Dawn (1. Feb. 2019)


Inspired by certain personal tragedies in and around the band, as well as the current meltdown of the world as we know it, Eclipse deals with a feeling of despair that many will recognize.

However, the music is more multicolored than ever, because the path to a better future starts out in the mind. Eclipse is a journey out of the darkness. Some might say a trip.

It boils down to 13 tracks in 38 minutes, at 33⅓ revolutions per minute, but Eclipse is by far the group's biggest work to date.

The Band

Psychedelia from Copenhagen

The Sonic Dawn is a trip – a psychedelic mixture of styles, from jazzy sitar pop to heavy acid rock. Expect melodic songs with a 60s flavor, laced with dreamy vocals and delivered with an explosive stage presence.

Since their acclaimed album debut, Perception from 2015, The Sonic Dawn has established themselves as the most prolific and succesful contemporary, psychedelic group out of Denmark. They have toured the European continent numerous times and have recently appeared alongside acts such as Graveyard (SE) and The Black Angels (US). Perception, sold out long ago, is available in a new Audiophile Edition.

Into the Long Night (2017) is the trio’s second album. Written by day and recorded at night during a month of complete isolation by The North Sea, it is as light and gracious as it is dark and mysterious.

Since returning home from their extensive album tour, The Sonic Dawn have worked intensely on their third full-length, Eclipse, to be released on Heavy Psych Sounds Records on February 1st, 2019. Pre-sale starts October 22nd, 2018.

The Audiophile Ed.

Perception is back with a vengeance

With its analogue remaster and fresh cut, straight out of Abbey Road Studios in London, Perception has never sounded better. Originally released by Nasoni Records in 2015, The Sonic Dawn's debut LP has been sold out for a long time. This new Audiophile Edition not only presents the album with a new analogue mastering and crystal clear cut, providing the best possible listening experience of Perception, but also presents the album on 180g black vinyl for the very first time.

Available on LP and CD as well as streaming/download exclusively via Bandcamp. Order via Bandcamp or ask in your local record shop.
