With their uncanny lyrics, massive harmonies, and six-string fireworks, Sunspot has been touring the rock underground for over two decades and performs driving electro-rock anthems that capture the fantastic and bring it back down to Earth.
After years of podcasting tour stories from their van, Sunspot branched out by creating Wisconsin’s #1 paranormal podcast, See You On The Other Side. Each of the show’s 200+ episodes feature interviews and discussions of pop culture and paranormal themes while capping each entry off with a brand new original track every week. Their latest album The Wonders of the Invisible World is a re-recorded and fully mastered collection of the most popular songs from the show. The paranormal inspiration ranges from weird Puritan superstitions (hence the Salem Witch Trials-related title track) to a rocker inspired by Ed and Lorraine Warren of The Conjuring fame (“The Only Faith”), a Churchillian ode to a brave psychic British cancer survivor (“Keep Calm and Carry On”) to a track about the escape of an out-of-body experience (“Push”).
Here is a sample of the reviews of Sunspot’s last album, Weirdest Hits:
“Sunspot learned to embrace its charming weirdness… the band members are making some of the best music of their career” – Isthmus, Madison, WI
“They sound oh so, familiar and like nothing you’ve ever heard before.” – Power Play Magazine, UK
“A PERFECT PIECE OF POP ROCK.” – Get Ready To Rock, UK
The Madison, Wisconsin band is a multiple award winner, including a 5-time winner for Best Rock Album from the Madison Area Music Awards and Wisconsin Area Music Industry’s Artist of the Year, an honor shared with Garbage, Violent Femmes, and Bon Iver. Recent music placements include Travel Channel’s Expedition Unknown, regular play on Canada’s most popular morning TV program, Your Morning, and the DVD releases of The Fate of the Furious and Dead Again in Tombstone starring Danny Trejo. In the last year alone they have opened for Smash Mouth and Third Eye Blind and shared the stage with AWOL Nation and Tantric.
