About this project

Denison Marrs was a chirstian indie rock band from Lakeland, Florida. They were labeled as a Christian indie rock/emo band. But if you listen to this album, you will see that this band was a physically existing anachronism within the time of its tenure in the music scene. Denison Marrs was a band apart.This is taken from their Last FM page:

"As Denison Marrs, they crafted their sound primarily from 90’s rock with a bit of 80’s sheen thrown in - comparisons can be made to early Smashing Pumpkins, the Cure, Radiohead, etc. Denison Marrs took these influeces and ran with them, creating a unique space rock soundscape that pulsed with sheer power. However, the band was also able to utilize elements of delicacy, primarily through the lyrics of frontman Eric Collins.

Denison Marrs was also important for their contribution to Christian music, carrying the torch of the underground movement began by the Prayer Chain, Stavesacre, and Starflyer 59 - the latter two being bands that Denison Marrs were able to tour with.

“World Renown for Romance” remains their most popular record, and is arguably their best. The songwriting is cohesive - it’s a concept album about love, for starters - and the quality of the arrangements and performances are consistent from one song to the next."

This amazing album will be offered as a double LP limited to a very sellable 200 black copies. You pledge of $20 will guarantee a copy of this record, which will save you a dollar or two on shipping. 10 tests presses will be given to people who pledge $40 or more. These test bundles will be strictly limited to 10 copies that will be hand numbered as pledge tests. Since this release will be a 2xLP and will require twice the metal plating and lacuering as a single LP, we're asking for $1,500. A very easy goal. The rest will come from our own pocket.

Sunsoar is a label dedicated to getting amazing releases onto vinyl and into the hands of those that want to hear it.
