Today, Sunndrug (Facebook, Instagram) is proud to premiere the lyric video for the band’s single, “Shining.” The song is the second released track from their upcoming debut album, Exit Wounds, scheduled for release on Halloween, Oct. 31. (Digital preorders for the album are now available, and all preorders get “Shining” immediately as an instant grat track for download.) The band previously released “Denial” as the debut single and is currently signed to Mind Over Matter Records.

We spoke to vocalist and guitarist Jimmy Reeves about the song:

“We worked with Ita/ic studio to create the album art, and they gave us some great imagery to work with. Ron Thompson shot the photos, and we wanted to edit them together in a way that supported the dark feel of ‘Shining.'”

Sunndrug is formed from the ashes of metalcore heavyweights Spitfire and Norma Jean. Reeves played bass with Spitfire from alongside drummer Chris Raines and guitarist Matt Beck. Beck played a stint with Mae as well, and Raines played drums with Norma Jean in the late 2000s. The band is rounded out with Junior Favela and Clint Kesler.



Droning On

The world came to a halt in 2020, but London-based Drones trudged on, giving a voice to the hurt that circulates with (or without) a pandemic: "You shouldn’t underestimate the power of writing things down or literally speaking them out loud, which I’m learning. I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
