And that you already want more songs from "Shape of the New Sun". We will return to "The Sonic Train Studios" later this year. And of course, work with Andy La Rocque as a producer. On June 1st we will play live at "The Swedish AOR Convention" in Malmö Sweden. There will be a limited edition of "The Sonic Train Studios Sessions" CD to buy for our supporters. The CD contains all the songs we have recorded with Andy La Rocque. And of course, artwork by Blekkmark Design Studio. Add "The Sonic Train Studios Sessions" Spotify playlist.

22-04-2019 End of the revolution
In two days on April 24, we will release "End of the Revolution". Single number five. You who follow us know that during the winter and spring we have released four singles so far. We know that there are supporters who wonder why we have chosen to do so, instead of releasing all songs as an EP. There`s a simple explanation for that. To spread our music it`s important that our songs end up on playlists. And our music is mostly streamed on Spotify. And in this way, our music has received more attention. We are an independent band, without a large record label or managment that works for us. We "work" together with a number of "playlisters" worldwide who add our songs. And their help means everything to us. A big thank you to all of you. You know who you are. It`s our way of reaching out to as many listeners as possible. Who may discover the Shape of the New Sun music. So far, our four new singles have been streaming over 150,000 times. Which has given us new listeners, followers and supporters. We have also discussed during the winter and spring which is the best way to keep in touch with our followers and supporters. Which social media is the best? We have our website. We are on Facebook and Instagram. And now you can also follow us on Pindify. We find it frustrating that our posts on some "social media" don`t reach out to all of our followers. Therefore, we will always be open to new social media. Like Pindify. For our new followers and supporters at Pindify, the song "End of the revolution" is available for free. Get an account and follow "Shape of the New Sun". Thanks to all of you who listen and follow Shape of the New Sun. You are all "Majestic".

20-12-2018 Happy Holidays….
It's beginning to look a lot like christmas ..... 2018 has been an exciting year for Shape of the New Sun. It started sad when we reached the news that Chris Tsangarides was dead. We never got the opportunity to work with him as planned. But when a door is closed, another door will open. In our case we met Andy La Rocque (official). This amazing producer and musician. During the year we have had the pleasure of working with him on two occasions. We recorded our single "How it all ends" in April. And in November we recorded five new songs that will be released as singles in the winter and spring 2018/2019. The first song, "Live Your Light" will be released tomorrow Friday 21 December. We are very pleased with the recording of these songs. We also had the great pleasure to be the opening act for Dan Reed in September. At the same time, we reached a million streams on Spotify. During the year we also started a collaboration with the Scream And Shout Music Agency. Which feels very good for us. Thanks to our friends and supporters, our adventure continues. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New 2019. The Year of the Sun.
Happy Birthday Tomas Persic!

08-01-18 Mr Chris Tsangarides
Yesterday we reached the sad news that Chris Tsangarides is dead. For "Shape of the New Sun", Mr. Tsangarides is a legend. He produced many albums of our favorite bands. The first time we had contact with Mr. Tsangarides was in October 2017. He had listened to our debut album "Dying Embers". And he thought it was good. So good that he offered to record an album with us. "A killer recording". He invited us to his studio in England. We decided to start recording two songs for one week with him. We would only decide together a date that worked for both of us. It would have been a dream come true to record an album with you Mr. Tsangarides. Now it remains a dream. Today, our thoughts go to your family. Vila i frid Mr Chris Tsangarides. / Håkan, Thomas, Ivan & Tomas.
