Thanx to everybody attending this evening.

We just got the news... sorry ladies and gentlemen! Everything was and is okay with our release.

Anyway, "Toy" again... hopefully worth the waiting!

Full new song "Toy" by DarkSuns

CD & Releaseshow:

Am 25. November wird es die neue Platte in beiden Versionen geben! Wie gesagt, mit unserer Pressung ist alles OK. Man möge meinen, es wäre ein Grund mehr, vorbeizuschauen... ;-)

Have fun.

Release Show Update!

Hey!

We are happy that there will be a really nice band in the boat with us on November 25th!

SAFI will perform as special guest at UT Connewitz and we're really looking forward that. As they are in the album production process, too, we're quite sure there is some new stuff to hear and watch on stage then.

Have a look on www.diesafi.de and you'll get finest stuff for your ears.

One month to go... bye.

"Orange" Release date!

We are very proud to share that information. Surely, it was a long way - 'though we should know how things work meanwhile... - finally we are very curious about the press and of course even more what you guys will think about the result.

We've been busy arranging, recording & mixing several weekends to finish our first unplugged EP ever done. Our way of interpreting a DS song in a veeeeery relaxed way. Not just uninspired "bonus songs". Believe me, my friend! :-)

Not to forget the DVD: Niko has cut one of the most intense moments ever together, and there is much more to explore... kewl. We won't vent on our nice experiences in video capturing, cutting, rendering, codecs, softWARe... Hell on earth, boy! But with big help from a friend of us (Hugs to Phillip! Now!) we got the stuff together, even nice working. Thanks, man.

Finally all we can say is.... GET YOUR LIMITED EDITION in November!

LVZ article this week. Slightly out of date, but nice, indeed. Thank You.

If you are somewhere around Rosslau next weekend, come by! First gig. The rehearsals have been a lot of fun. We are fit, that's for sure.

Bye.

Hi folks!

Anyway, here is the final front cover:


Dark Suns - Orange

Hope you enjoy it. We will post the tracklist here soon. You know how the wind blows... Thanks for watching, see you guys later!

Bye, DS

Video 04

... or "Horny hours!"

Thanks Govinda and Evgeny! You did an awesome job.

Have a nice day.

Done!

Great. 10 songs, recorded in 5 days... 10 rocksongs, that seem to turn out unbelievable. To pick up the words below: We played. We inhaled, sweated, laughed, worried, created... we lost ourselves within here. The way was not easy at all.

We are really looking forward recording vocals, additional horns and maybe some weird stuff we just don't know currently... thumbs up!
Yesterday we've had our first "listening session" ... in a car. 4 guys rocking their own music. Passion.

See you. Happy Easter!

Video 03

... or "The 12 Bars Of Hell"

Good Night.

Men and their toys

Hi there,
almost 5 songs done in the last 3 days are good for the schedule. Yeah. Nevertheless time is running fast and there is quite a lot to record. But we really enjoy the process, are "IN" the music as never before and believe you will hear that in the end.

A few pics that - of course - cannot represent this intimate atmosphere perfectly, but surely a good try. Take a look.

You know the game... next motion picture in 24hours. Sleep tight!

Video 02

... or "Jacob's Touchdown Of Death"

See You. Bye

To build a sound

After four days of extensive fiddling we finally finished the soundcheck. None of the ten songs are done so far but we have a good feeling anyway. To keep it shortly: enjoy the pics of the day, next video comes up tomorrow.

Good Night, we have to catch some sleep.

Video 01

... or "Ekky in the sky with Hammonds"

More to follow tomorrow. Bye

Here we go again

Hi folks!
We finally entered Kick The Flame to put our ideas and instruments in place. We've been waiting for this moment quite a long time. But... waiting has been worthwhile, we return with a lot of new stuff and as a band of Five.

Silence is loud

We can't wait to play, to inhale, to sweat, to laugh, to worry, to create, to loose ourselves within here. Pure anticipation, or shall we say Andy-cipation as he's the guy to touch it, to turn it upside down and get the best out of us. Just a very next coffee to stay and a few mails to check out, before having an easy jam. The cumulus clouds revolve and we initiate the DS commune. Soundcheck starts tomorrow.

Stay tuned...
