Austrian heavy rockers Sunstain were founded in Linz in 2017. Drawing inspiration from a large variety of styles ranging from raw Desert Rock and old school Hard Rock to more modern and progressive sounding blends of Grunge and Stoner the band doesn‘t necessarily fit into a specific drawer. Always trying to evolve and challenge themselves, the four musicians commute between different genres and subcultures of underground music. After the release of a first EP titled “Thrill And Fever“ in January 2019 the quartet then went on to commit to an alternative approach of releasing new music with a new single every few months. First, there was the highly energetic “Manic Preacher“, then came the long and winding roller coaster ride that is “Through Empty Spaces“. With another two new songs set for release in late 2020 (“Nowhere To Be Found“) and early 2021 (“Roots“) Sunstain is excited to showcase the creative development they‘ve undergone since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Both songs dealing with topics of youthful joy of life, drunk nights, and getting lost in the sound amidst a crowd of strangers in a dark room full of smoke. A celebration of DIY music culture.

Ein ambitioniertes Debut einer neuen Linzer Formation, die das Genre mit „Thrill and Fever“ zwar nicht neu erfinden, aber sich nahtlos in die Reihe empfehlenswerter Acts aus der Stahlstadt einordnen.
