Sunder – a heavy psychedelic foursome out of France release self-titled debut album on October
Sunder from Lyon, France, is a four-piece band formed in 2014 on the remains of The Socks. Influenced by late 60’s psychedelia and armed with Mellotron, fuzzed out guitars and a solid rhythm section Sunder entered the recording studio in May 2015. Assisted by producer Julien Masson the band
recorded their first full-length album including the debut single “Cursed Wolf”.
The album consists of nine tracks including the Sabbath heavy “Bleeding Trees”, the trippy “Don’t Leave It Behind” and the heavy psych rolling “Daughter of the Snows”. The digital release comes with the bonus track “Phoenix”.
On September 11th, 2015, the band release the album track “Cursed Wolf” as a single on a silver foil stamped 7” flexi disc (also carrying a demo version of the very same song). The self-titled album is set to be released on October 30th, 2015. Produced by Julien Masson and engineered by Raphael Cartellier. The artwork and layout is made by Simon Bonnefoy.
The band has played shows alongside Earthless, Danava and Radio Moscow and is set to tour Europe
in October together with Harsh Toke (US).

“‘Deadly Flowers’ makes everything clear.”
Frank Schäfer, Rock Hard (DE)
“An all-round success records without any flaw.”
“The Socks are dead, long live Sunder – Retro-Psych-Heavy-Rock are in good hands with this French contribution.”
Jan Schwarzkamp, Vision (DE)
“From the very first organ tones to the last guitar chords they offer sparkling rock, in their best moments made for the large arenas.”
Helena Nilsson, Gaffa (SE)
