Melbourne-based grunge rockers Cicadastone, have released the second single from their forthcoming album, Cold Chamber, with Dying in Sunshine now available across digital platforms, out through Golden Robot Records.
With unique instrumentation and biting vocal intensity characterising this latest offering from Cicadastone, it’s a track described by frontman, Mat Robins, as “a song about false standards and the pressure that modern society depicts”, particularly when it comes to social media.
“It’s pain from within disguised to look fine, just to be socially accepted. Dying in Sunshine is all around us, just take a closer look,” says Robins.
The official music video for Dying in Sunshine is set for release on June 18.
Melbourne-based four piece Cicadastone deliver music that packs a punch. With an old school 90’s influences and a slick modern edge, Cicadastone have found their own space in the grunge rock genre. Formed in 2013 by founding members and brothers Mat and Mark Robins, they have spent the last few years honing their sound and live show, as well as constantly writing and releasing quality music.
In 2016 Cicadastone released their debut album Chance Collide. A bold statement and an impressive first release. Songs like Drown My Hopes, Forgotten Fears, Oh Satellite and Headlights On showcased Cicadastone’s song writing maturity and diversity.
Sonically the album holds its own on an international level. 2019 saw Cicadastone sign with Golden Robot Records to release their highly anticipated second album titled Cold Chamber. It’s an album that continues to push the grunge rock boundaries and a natural progression forward for the band. They’ve developed their own unique sound while staying truly authentic to the genre, a difficult task in a time when it’s all been done before.
Cold Chamber is currently slated for release in late 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic crisis.
