Rock ‘n’ roll, if it serves one direct purpose, is to articulate life lived to the fullest, this is what Toronto based, Sun K, aim to do on their thunderous sophomore record, Bleeding Hearts. Set for release on October 19th via Nevado Records, the record celebrates the oft-felt mythic dramas that occur while you’re young and foolish. Pre-order the album here, and catch the band’s energetic live show as they tour through the fall (details below, with more dates to be announced soon). Tickets to the hometown Toronto show are on sale now, here. Premium tickets can be purchased and will include a CD or Vinyl copy of the new album.
Lead singer and guitarist, Kristian Montano, says he would look back on the songs found on Bleeding Hearts and believe them to be epic stories, but inevitably they were simple things he and the group had endured together. “It’s often said that art imitates life and this is especially true with our new record Bleeding Hearts. We set out to capture every human emotion we as individuals felt and wore on our sleeves with complete transparency. Sometimes it feels like your whole world is slipping through your fingers. Bleeding Hearts is an encapsulation of the internal chaos and struggle we all experience as we figure out who we are, and a celebration in knowing that it’s all part of life’s journey.”
Operating as a five-piece ensemble, Kristian Montano (Vox/Guitar), Stuart Retallack (Keys, Horns, Vox), Kevin Michael Butler (Vox, Guitar, Violin), Scott Tiller (Drums) and Gil Paul (Bass), the band’s sound blends the strident particulars of rock music with the gentle and sharp purview of folk in surprising places.
Stay tuned for additional tour dates from Sun K to be announced, and their sophomore album coming soon!
