A new and exciting chapter has started in the story of Sunday Driver. We’ve been together for quite a few years now – longer than most marriages – and finally things seem to be taking off for us.
There’s lots of stuff in the pipeline – including a UK and European booking agent (Frusion – woo!) – a PR campaign in the works, headlining the Cafe de Paris on Friday 13th November (that’s THIS FRIDAY – yay!), and an upcoming feature in Steampunk Magazine.
Anyway, now seems as good a time as any to do a bit of pimping.
Secondly, if you’re on Facebook, then we have a “Support Sunday Driver” group. It’s like our very own support group, without quite so much alcoholism.
As a special treat, people who join the group will get a sneaky mp3 of our new song “The Suitor”, recorded at Cambridge Folk Festival (little clip below). We also have a facebook fan page here, so join that too!
Finally, our album In the City of Dreadful Night is available to buy from our website, and on iTunes.You can also download our recent single (Rats/Gayatri Mantra) from the website for absolutely zero pence. A veritable bargain.
Here are some of the lovely things people have said about us, the album, and the single so far:
“Sunday Driver weave an exotic musical tapestry, where East and West cultures meet to create an album filled with drama, dark humour and yearning.“ – bigchill.net
