TEAM UP WITH CONE McCASLIN FOR SOPHOMORE ALBUM

 

LAUNCH PLEDGEMUSIC CAMPAIGN

" ..the band prove that they know how to rock ." - Exclaim!

 

" Sun K are going places-fast " - The Coast

TORONTO, ON - May 17, 2016 - Bluesy-folk-rock group Sun K are thrilled to announce The DoctorFeels Good Tour, kicking off at NXNE on June 17th at The Horseshoe (w/ NQ Arbuckle). "NXNE has a very special significance to our band," shares frontman Kristian Montano. "Our first ever show was for NXNE and this year marks three years of Sun K - we can't think of a better way to celebrate." The tour will include stops in Quebec City, Halifax and Charlottetown - all details are below. The band is currently in the studio with producer Cone McCaslin (Sum 41) to work on their sophomore album. Cone previously sat in the producer chair for their well received 2015 debut album, Northern LiesVisit: http://bit.ly/1OBIVZE for fun ways to support the bands new album via PledgeMusic, including opportunities to hang with the band via whiskey tasting, BBQ dinners, and Axe throwing. 

 

After releasing their debut album, Northern Lies, last March via MapleMusic Recordings (now Cadence Music) - the band quickly developed a reputation for their bluesy, folksy, dirty rock sound. Noisey declared; "Northern Lies makes it clear that the destination is worth the trip, even if there's a heartbreak or two along the way ." Produced by Cone (The Strumbellas, Operation MD) and mixed by Gus Van Go and Werner F - the record quickly garnered critical acclaim.

 

For their sophomore album Montano says; "We're recording the new album at Lincoln County Social with engineer John Dinsmore and producer Cone McCaslin. The sound, while maintaining our roots in Folk 'n' Roll, is definitely more immediate and attention grabbing. It leans heavily on sweaty old school underground Rock n Roll but also draws on a diverse set of influences to find our own classic sound. Something we like to call heavy roots."

 

Not a live show to be missed - keyboardist Stuart Retallack, guitarist Kevin Michael Butler, bassist Gil Paul, drummer Scott Tiller and frontman Kristian Montano deliver intense, charismatic, and driving shows that will captivate all in attendance.

SUN·K SET TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM NORTHERN LIES ON MARCH 10th

Blues, dirty rock and roll, thrown in a folk blender with just the right amount of spit and shine and you’ve got the debut album, Northern Lies, by Toronto’s Sun K. Out March 10th on MapleMusic Recordings, the album (available for pre-order now on iTunes - http://bit.ly/1AgcYx1) features first single, piano-driven rave-up New York City Blues. Fans can stream the track now on Soundcloud and Spotify. It will also be available as an instant grat with the pre-order. 

Produced by Cone McCaslin, whose credits also include The Strumbellas and Operation MD, and mixed by Gus Van Go and Werner F, the eight songs that make up Northern Lies will be the first statement from a band eager to make its mark straight out of the gate. Sun K will celebrate the release with a hometown residency at The Dakota, followed by dates in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes, before setting off on a full Western Canada tour (see TOUR section).

While Sun K’s line-up is sonically dynamic – keyboardist Stuart Retallack also playshorns, and guitarist Kevin Michael Butler is equally adept at fiddle, complementing the rhythm section of bassist JuHang Sin and drummer Aaron Bravener – the band’s vision is in large measure conveyed by front man Kristian Montano. With a voice that simultaneously channels Lou Reed and Julian Casablancas, combined with guitar chops honed directly through the Neil Young songbook, there seems nothing else Montano was better suited to be than a band leader.

Get ready for Sun K to bring some seriously raucous rock n’ roll this winter!

Happy new year!

Hello everyone!! We're absolutely thrilled to announce that we have final mixes for our new record 'Northern Lies'. The 8-song record was produced by Cone McCaslin and mixed by Gus van Go and Werner F - it will be released early 2015 on MapleMusic Recordings.

In other news, thank you all for voting us to be Deli Magazine's artist of the month. We've got some special announcements regarding that coming soon so stay tuned.

We'll be announcing tour dates soon so visit back here often to find out when we're playing your city next.

Happy Holidays

Hey guys,

We're feeling pretty grateful lately. Thank you guys and gals so much for making last Saturday’s show with NQ Arbuckle such a blast!! As usual, Collective Concerts and The Horseshoe Tavern put on the best live music in Toronto, and our label-mate and new bud Andrew Austin and his band got everyone in the mood and made us swoon.

That was our last show this year, but we'll be back in 2015 – if you can’t wait that long, check out our debut singles Sweet Marie and Let It Grow. We’re working hard on a shiny new record and new tunes so til next year, party on and KEEP ON ROCKIN IN THE FREE WORLD!!

PEACE 2014 YOU'VE BEEN RAD LOVE, SUN K
