Formed in early 2014, Solid Sun introduced the Irish rock music scene to their ear-catching heavy tones with a highly successful tour later that year in support of Acca Dacca, the world’s foremost ACDC tribute act.
Following the tour the band were busy writing and recording their debut EP “Fall In Line” which released in August 2015. The band supported this with a string of gigs around their Dublin base but not content with surviving on just four released tracks the band got working again in the studio.
“Today Is The Day” was the follow up single from the four piece in 2016 and was greatly received with the song being used by O’Neill’s for their 1916 commemoration jersey online campaign and by artist Barry Jazz Finnegan for his online art videos.
After playing to a full house in the Button Factory in January, the band are releasing four new singles throughout the summer of 2017, which includes the song "Dead Machines". In support of this Solid Sun will be doing a number of gigs around Ireland to bring their sound and craic on stage to as many people as possible. Each member is also a sound engineer which means the band are fascinated with acoustics as well as live performance and aim to bring a high level of energy, edge and character to every gig.
