Split Album + Tour!

Hey there!!!
Feb­ru­ary 14th we will be releas­ing a split record with The Machine and The Strikes & Gut­ters Tour through Europe will start!

Art­work for the Split record by Maarten Donders:



Keep an eye out for updates and music from the split record and we hope to see you at one of the shows!
bye bye

Last week­end of record­ing the split and play­ing Mudfest!

This week­end we will go to Stu­dio De Zolder and fin­ish the record­ings for the Split with The Machine. Really look­ing for­ward to this!
Also we can announce that we will play at Mud­fest 2012 in Per­ron 55 in Venlo (NL)! We will play an exclu­sive set with some new stuff of course. But I’m telling you what the poster also tells you, so DON’T MISS THE RIDE!!!


Split Album

Split Album

Dur­ing the next two months, both The Machine & Sun­grazer will be spend­ing some time in the stu­dio. The record­ings will start this Fri­day and take place in the pri­vate stu­dio of The Machine, Stu­dio De Zolder. Since both bands share the same record label, it’s prob­a­bly not quite the sur­prise that Elek­tro­hasch Records will be releas­ing the split album. You can expect an early 2013 release.

This project is the result of a mutual friend­ship that, like the idea for a split album, already started years ago. Since our lat­est releases, Calmer Than You Are (2012) and Mirador (2011), new songs and jams already devel­oped them­selves. Each band will use (a cou­ple of) these tunes for their part of the split. As with The Machine’s pre­vi­ous four albums, David Eering will be pro­duc­ing both Sun­grazer and his own band.

Stay tuned on both bands’ Face­book pages and web­sites for more updates! If we don’t for­get, we might post some video footage and/​or pic­tures from the record­ing process. The entire process will be doc­u­mented.




We wanted to let you know that we have some nice gigs planned. But not too much live till the end of this year, because we are writ­ing our third album and we will also soon announce another very cool ‘thing’. So please take a look at our shows sec­tion at our web­site and we’ll keep you posted…

Hey man it’s rainy outside

Is it in your coun­try also rainy? We had a great sum­mer though and we really enjoyed play­ing in Italy at the Pietra­son­ica fes­ti­val. You can check out how “Jules M.” (a very good friend and already becom­ing a cult leg­end) announces us at the fes­ti­val:

That’s dis­tor­tion right?!

After we returned from hol­i­day we pretty much started our daily life again. We also found some time to work on new mate­r­ial again… FINALLY! We even got the chance to record one jam/​song. Maybe we can let you hear a mix soon or some video footage.

But the best news is that we are going on TOUR IN OCTO­BER with GRAND­LOOM through.… Europe! We let you know very soon which exact dates and cities are con­firmed.

At last we’d like to leave you with some footage of one of our best expe­ri­ences so far, which was being and play­ing at Duna Jam in Sar­dinia this year. Thanks again to every­one who made this pos­si­ble for us (espe­cially Oli, Ste­fan, Philipp and Mani) and every­one who was there! Enjoy this video of Somo dur­ing the sun­set in the dunes:

Updated photo gallery

Hey, we updated our photo gallery. Take a look at some pic­tures under the ‘media’ section!

Record­ing new album

Hi every­one!

It’s time we let you know what we are up to right now. We are busy prepar­ing for the record­ings of our new full length album in Jan­u­ary 2011. This time we won’t record in our rehearsal room but in the stu­dio of the Muziekgi­eterij in Maas­tricht together again with Mau­rice Huyts.

How will the new record be? Well… the new songs will be more spun out and more com­pact. More fuzz and more clean. More songs and more jams. More of the same and more of the unex­pected. It’s only up to you how you will expe­ri­ence this once you will put the nee­dle on the wax. Any­way we can’t wait any more, that’s for sure!


(In the pic­ture above we are set­ting up the stu­dio in the Muziekgieterij)

After the record­ings in Jan­u­ary 2011 our next shows will be at the “Up In Smoke” Stoner-​Roadfestival through Europe in February!
2010 was really unde­scribeble for us: Releas­ing our first record, play­ing at Pinkpop and many other cool fes­ti­vals, play­ing with a lot of great bands and friends, sign­ing with record label Elek­tro­hasch and with book­ing agency Sound Of Lib­er­a­tion, meet­ing many good peo­ple. It’s really hard to sum it all up man! It’s been a trip. It’s been so good. We’d like to thank you and every­one for all of this. THANK YOU!!!
We just updated our video gallery. It’s under the media sec­tion. So have a look at some nice clips and live footage.

We hope to see you soon and remem­ber: uuuh… to.. uuu­u­uuh.….. yeah…
