SUNS is nearing completion on the writing and composition for our next record, "When We Were Us", but we can't get into the studio and deliver a finished product without your help! We've been all around the country playing for each and every one of you and now the time has come to settle down and make what we know will be a fantastic first full-length record. We have booked time to record with engineer and producer Theo Karon (This Is Cinema, Thin Hymns, Pillars and Tounges), who is known for his work with an all analog setup. This is where you come in! As of now, we are planning on recording, mixing, mastering and pressing the album ourselves, and we need your financial support!
