SUNSTRIKE Launch 'Ready II Strike' May 20

Artist: 
 
SUNSTRIKE are ready to take the Hard Rock world by storm again with their new album “Ready II Strike”! The record is scheduled for a release on AOR Heaven on May 20. This is the second effort from this Swedish band feat. the incredible Christian Eriksson (Twilight Force, Theander Expression) on  vocals.
 

Product: Sunstrike - Ready II Strike
Release date: 20.05.2016
Label: AOR Heaven
 
 
Sunstrike was formed by guitarist Joachim Nordlund and drummer Johan Lindstedt together with singer Christian Eriksson (Twilight Force, The Theander Expression) in late 2012. Joachim and Johan also are members  of  Swedish metal act Astral Doors. Right from the start the three guys had a very clear image of how the music should sound like: pure melodic hard rock was on the agenda!  Fredrik Plahn (Prey), Mats Gesar (Thalamus) and bass player Björn Lundqvist (Twilight Force) soon completed the band.
 
Two demo songs were posted on the band’s Facebook page in summer of 2013, and immediately the word was out about this new  melodic rock outfit from Sweden. The song-writing/recording continued through 2013 in Joachim’s Big Turn Studio until they had 12 songs that were strong enough for the album ”Rock your World” which was released in 2014 on AOR Heaven.
 
Now, SunStrike is back! After the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, Johan Lindstedt and Joachim Nordlund soon started working on new songs for an upcoming album. They once again teamed up with Christian Eriksson, Fredrik Plahn and Mats Gesar and started the recordings of what was to become album no. 2, “Ready II Strike”, in Joachims Big Turn Studio in the fall of 2015. Bass player Bjorn didn't find the time to lay down his tracks for  this album, so Joachim took care of the bass lines. To make the choirs as big and fat as possible two friends of the band, Danne Andersson and Annsofie Lindström, joined them  in the studio for a couple of days and nailed down some cool harmonies.
Being very pleased with Erik Mårtensson’s work with the mixing/mastering of the first album, the choice was pretty easy this time around. The cover art and booklet design was done again by Carl-André Beckston (Monowasp).
 
SunStrike are: Christian Eriksson - Lead Vocals; Joachim Nordlund - Electric and Acoustic Guitars, bass; Lead and Background vocals, Mats Gesar - Guitars; Johan Lindstedt - Drums; Fredrik Plahn hn - Keyboards and background vocals

SunStrike: A glare in the road that can temporarily blind drivers. But SunStrike will blind you with catchy melodies and big choruses!

The band was formed by guitarist Joachim Nordlund and the drummer Johan Lindstedt together with singer Christian Hedgren (Twilight Force, The Theander Expression) by the fall of 2012.

You also find Joachim and Johan in the Swedish metal act Astral Doors. Right from the start the three guys had a very clear image in how the music should sound like: pure melodic hard rock was on the agenda! When only a handful of songs were written they felt that the songs needed the touch of a real keyboard player. Up until then Joachim had done the keyboard parts on one or two songs.

Christian knew a guy that would be perfect for the job, and after a cup of coffee and a handshake Fredrik Plahn (Prey) joined the force. They all felt that this is far too good to be just a project and after a couple of weeks a second guitar player, Mats Gesar (Thalamus) and bass player Björn Lundqvist (Twilight Force) joined the band that now got the name SunStrike.

Two demo songs were posted on the band's facebook page in the summer of 2013, and immediately the word was out about this new melodic rock outfit from Sweden.

Radio stations started to play those songs and a couple of record companies showed their interest in the band. The song-writing/recording continued through 2013 in Joachim's Big Turn Studio until they had 12 songs that were strong enough for the album "Rock your World". For the mixing and mastering process SunStrike chose Erik Mårtensson (Eclipse, W.E.T).

Cover art and the booklet design was done by no one else but Carl-André Beckston (Monowasp). Get ready to be knocked by this SunStrike!
