On the back of last year’s critically acclaimed “Amber & Gold” EP, Alunah return with their brand new album titled “Violet Hour”, and the debut for Heavy Psych Sounds, who are proud to welcome the UK hard rock / doom heavyweights to their eclectic artist roster while joining label mates and high class acts such as Brant Bjork, Nebula, Nick Oliveri, Yawning Man among many more.
“The first half of this year has been an incredibly positive, creative and productive period for Alunah.” Drummer Jake Mason comments. “We are therefore extremely honoured and excited for the resulting album to be be coming out on Heavy Psych Sounds and to join a roster that features such inspirational artists.”
“Violet Hour” sees the energy of Alunah‘s dark, doom tinged hard rock being cranked up with the arrival of guitarist Dean Ashton (bass, Diamond Head) alongside the soaring vocals of Siân Greenaway and rhythmic foundation of Dan Burchmore and Jake Mason. Recorded at the historic Welsh Foel Studio and produced by Chris Fielding (Conan, Electric Wizard, Primordial) these 8 tracks on display show the fruits of a productive early 2019 with a searing combination of melodies, riffs and focused writing.
Today Alunah are proudly sharing with us the album artwork and tracklist for their highly anticipated, upcoming record, which is set for a release on October 11st 2019! The band continues: “Alunah are very happy and excited to release “Violet Hour” to the world.
