Crusher Records is thrilled to announce the signing of French heavy psych band Sunder.
-> Sunder featured over at Visions!
The Gods of Rock have seen fit to bestow upon the masses a reincarnation of the psychedelic force previously known as The Socks.
Comprising the same lineup, this incarnation of reverberation that goes by the name of Sunder is destined to sell out stadiums throughout the world, splitting heads through the ears with their brand of thunderous, heavy rock.
Signed to Crusher Records in Europe and Tee Pee Records in the States, Sunder is poised to leave their mark the world over.
Julien Méret’s vocals have both the zeal of a prophet and the desperation of a false one. As he proselytizes to the masses, it’s impossible for any person to end up anywhere but on their knees. Then, praying for mercy, a wave of fuzzed out guitar tone crushes the mind and leaves nothing but chaos.
Jessy Ensenat may as well be playing with your bones as he leaves you seizing on the ground with the power of his drums. Vincent Melay will remind you what it was all for, as his rhythmic bass lifts your soul to immortality.
Finally, the vocals, farfisa, and mellotron of Nicolas Baud will give you a taste of your own funeral as you join him to piss on your own grave.
The Socks were of Lyon, France. Sunder is of the world and it is with the sounds of Sunder that the shores of the world will be plundered.
The band comments: “It’s with great pleasure and pride to be part of two of the most amazing heavy/psych labels in the world. Expect us in your town soon, wherever you possibly may be. We are now working our asses off, proposing to you a new sound between psychedelia, heaviness and beauty.”
Debut album expected by the fall of 2015.

The forth-coming album “Oracles And Prophet”s is due on May 20th via Crusher Records have been recorded at Studio Möllan and Studio Celcius in the band’s hometown Malmö, Sweden. Today Vidunder release the single “Gone With Dawn” from the upcoming full-length, a track doing a well job representing the rock’n’roll infused album. With roaring guitars, rich organ sound and cocky vocals Vidunder paves the way for a most interesting rock release towards early summer.
– If the last album was a result of what we sound like if one knocks up a bunch of microphones and play rock, this is how it turned out when we worked with a more open mind and thorough work in production, says singer and guitarist Martin Prim.
The single also contains the exclusive track of the band’s own version of rock icon Roky Erickson’s song “The Interpreter”.
– Roky Erickson has always been a source of inspiration to us and “The Interpreter” in particular has a cool and simple vibe suiting us so damn good, both genre and tone wise, to our sound, explains Martin Prim and continues: And it was the only cover we knew, so it was an easy choice when we had some studio-paid minutes left.
The single is available via streaming, download and 7-inch vinyl flexi disc (only as bundle to the album).
Vidunder’s upcoming album Oracles And Prophets is now up for pre-order! There’s an exclusive deluxe package including a 7” flexi disc of Gone With Dawn /w The Interpreter (exclusive track for this single).
