Sonic Jesus Announces European Tour, March 2015

Sonic Jesus blew away audiences earlier this year with the unrelenting sonic intensity of their live show, during a 40 date European tour in support of their now sold-out debut album, Neither Virtue Nor Anger.

They'll be taking to the road again in March 2016 for a circuit of southern Europe after a slew of UK shows including a performance at Manchester's Cosmosis festival.

Sonic JesusThe Italian group have gained a reputation for their impassioned live show, delivered with all the raw energy and mastery that one would hope for after listening to their epic double LP debut album. Clash Music put it well when they said ‘If you decide to name your band Sonic Jesus then you're going to need to back it up with something special.’ Indeed they did.

The sentiment was matched by Chromaticism who wrote, 'Already monumental tracks on vinyl, ‘Locomotive’, ‘Drift 22’, ‘Whore Is Death’, ‘Lost Reprise’ and ‘Telegraph’, morph live into an explosive, dynamic coup de grâce, pummelling the assembled into submission.'

In their short history, the group has already supported some of the biggest names in psych such as Damo Suzuki (Can), Dead Skeletons and Singapore Sling, and their performances last year at Eindhoven Psych Lab and Portugal's Reverence Festival have put them on the map as one of the best new live acts on the psych circuit. 

Sonic JesusThe Sleeping Shaman said of their performance at Eindhoven Psych Fest,'The stage presence is strong and I’m pretty sure that everyone feels the venue shrink during this set. The pulsating sound drags you under into the despair echoing in the guitar riffs. This is definitely a secret highlight of the fest.'

After gaining critical acclaim for both their recorded and live offering from the likes of The Quietus, Exclaim!, Drowned In Sound, Consequence of Sound, Italy's RockIt and local press spanning all through Europe and into Asia and America, Sonic Jesus are well placed to deliver a stella follow up tour in 2016.

NUOVA USCITA DEI SONIC JESUS - LOCOMOTIVE - 7’’ - CHE INCLUDE UN REMIX DI SONIC BOOM ALIAS PETE KEMBER, FONDATORE DI SPACEMEN 3.

Sonic Jesus Locomotive Cover ArtDopo aver causato un’ onda d’urto nella scena underground con il loro album d’esordio ‘Neither Virtue Nor Anger’, i Sonic Jesus tornano alla ribalta con un 7 pollici edizione limitata - uscita prevista il 20 Novembre con Fuzz Club Records - il quale comprende una nuovissima traccia ed un remix di Sonic Boom ( alias Pete Kember, fondatore e leader di Spacemen 3 e Spectrum).

L’ “A-Side” include il remix di “Locomotive”; la traccia mantiene quell’ astratta bellezza vocale che in qualche modo evoca un rituale religioso o, piuttosto, un lamento di solitudine.
La canzone è quindi sospinta nei cieli dall’ istante in cui la terapia psichedelica di Sonic Boom prende forma.

Il “B-Side”, “Never In My Mind”, inizia come una chiamata alle armi piena di violenza ed energia, e continua la sua andatura furiosa come un colpo di adrenalina al cuore.
Il passo di marcia del rullante è ricoperto da distorti suoni di chitarra e cupe melodie vocali, le quali producono il contraddistinto suono dei Sonic Jesus.

 

 

SUI SONIC JESUS

Dalle loro due prime uscite (Neither Virtue Nor Anger e l’omonimo EP uscito con Fuzz Club nel 2012) gli italiani Sonic Jesus si sono guadagnati l’adorazione dalla maggior parte della stampa musicale alternativa, Classic Rock, XL, RockIt, Il Mucchio, Consequence of Sound, The Quietus, Drowned In Sound, Clash Music e  Exclaim! , per menzionarne alcuni; elogiando il loro incomparabile suono marcato da un’ intensa oscurità “industrial”, costituita da  innumerevoli influenze.

“Sonic Jesus hanno definitivamente dimostrato di essere dei maestri contemporanei” - The Quietus

“I Sonic Jesus possono rivendicare di aver creato un album cult della scena - e dell’anno”. - Drowned In Sound - ( in riferimento a Neither Virtue Nor Anger)

New Track and 7" From Sonic Jesus


After causing seismic shifts in the underground earlier this year with their debut album
Neither Virtue Nor Anger, Sonic Jesus are back with a brand new track, "Never In My Mind", due for release on a limited edition 7" titled Locomotive on November 20th.

“Never In My Mind” starts off like a call to arms full of violence and energy, and continues its rampage pace like an adrenaline shot to the heart. The marching snare drum is overlaid with fuzz-heavy guitars and dark distorted vocals to produce a sound that is distinctly Sonic Jesus.

It will appear as the B side to a remix of "Locomotive" by legendary underground icon Sonic Boom aka Pete Kember from Spacemen 3 and Spectrum.
