Sun Domingo Announce Digital EP Release
Sun Domingo will be releasing a digital EP, "Piece," on June 22, 2010. The EP will be available via all digital download portals.
Says guitarist Edgel Groves: "The 'Piece' EP is a collection of five songs we are very proud of. We had the chance to try these songs out on the road over the past two years and get reaction from our fans."
"One of our personal favorites and fan favorites is 'Mad Maze,' an instrumental we crafted from pure improv and named after our manager Matt Mayes, who inspired the song from his guijo playing in the band Jupiter Coyote," says Groves. "The EP version of this song showcases John Wesley of Porcupine Tree on guitar. For anyone who has not heard John play, it is a treat and well worth a listen. World class musician and guy.
"The acoustic track 'Dry It Up' was recorded as a home demo by [lead vocalist/bassist] Jason Pomar on his four-track digi recorder. We originally sent the track over to Steve Hogarth of Marillion to have him write an extra verse to sing on the song. He eventually told us he thought the song was perfect as-is and suggested we release the home recording. So, we took another listen back to it and decided it deserved to be released."
The band also plans to release its next studio full-length in September. The as-yet-untitled album features songs from the EP as well as plenty of previously-unreleased, newly-recorded offerings. "These five tracks will be merged with another five songs later this year for our sophomore full length album," says Groves.
Sun Domingo shot onto the international stage when DIY prog-rock legends Marillion invited them to Montreal as direct support for two nights in April 2009. The magic of that performance is captured in their recently-released live collection, "Live In Montreal/Marillion Weekend '09," which came out on Rock Ridge Music on April 20, 2010.
The track list is as follows:
1) New Love
3) White Noise
4) Dry It Up
5) Mad Maze
