New Sun


With a desire to tell compelling stories, and experiment with inventive songwriting, New Sun formed as a reaction to the popular media-schlock music of the 80’s and 90’s. While running away from static commercial song strucutures, eighteen years of being in the test tube has bred a “less is more” attitude, tempered with the use of complex forms and rhythms. The foundation of the New Sun sound is designed to groove and appeal to a wider audience while making it fun and challenging for the artists. Read more on Last.fm
With a desire to tell compelling stories, and experiment with inventive songwriting, New Sun formed as a reaction to the popular media-schlock music of the 80’s and 90’s. While running away from static commercial song strucutures, eighteen years of being in the test tube has bred a “less is more” attitude, tempered with the use of complex forms and rhythms. The foundation of the New Sun sound is designed to groove and appeal to a wider audience while making it fun and challenging for the artists. New Sun was founded in 1993 by D.L. Erickson (guitars) and Christopher Scott Cooper (guitars, vocals, keys) in the San Francisco Bay Area upon discovering common interest in the classic Progressive Rock bands of the 70’s.

Soon after, the rhythm section duo of Alex Kley (bass) and Scott Landucci (drums) would answer an ad in a local music rag to complete the line-up. One year later, upon the departure of Landucci, Kley would bring in Chris Trujillo (drums, vocals), completing the line-up for the first two releases "Fractured" (1995) and "Affects" (1998). After performing in support of both releases, Erickson decided to depart the band and follow his interests in ambient music and Guitar Craft (Robert Fripp). A year hiatus ensued then the remaining members began collaborating on "Expectations" (2001), retaining the embodiments of bands like Rush, King Crimson, and Pink Floyd, while adding newer influences such as Tool, STP, Porcupine Tree and Soundgarden to their musical arsenal. After a 6 year hiatus Tru and CSC began working on new material with Kley joining the fold again in 2008. In 2009 two singles "She Moved Me" and "Damage Done" were released. In 2010 Chris Elio joined New Sun as lead vocalist and the recordings for 4th CD took a dramatic turn in direction.

On 11/11/11 New Sun performed a CD release show and released a limited edition 4 song EP. The new CD will be titled "Damage Done" and be released in April 2012. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
