Welcome to the official Sungrazer website
It’s tour kick-off day /Presentation of the split album of The Machine and Sungrazer at Poppodium 013. DJ Walter Roadburn will be taking care of your delicate ears whenever there’s no band playing. We hope to see you all there! Otherwise somewhere else in Europe during the next 2,5 weeks. Have a look at the tourposter down here…
From now on you’ll be able to buy and download the digital album (€9,00) at the special Bandcamp account here
Split release and Strikes & Gutters Tour through Europe coming up!
Split Album + Tour!
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!!!
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…

Recording new album
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!
After the recordings in January 2011 our next shows will be at the “Up In Smoke” Stoner-Roadfestival through Europe in February!
We hope to see you soon and remember: uuuh… to.. uuuuuuh.….. yeah…
SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!!!
