Sun Dial return with a new album

Cult psychedelic/stoner rock band Sun Dial celebrate their 20th anniversary by returning from the wilderness with a brand new self-titled studio album, released April 26th. Back in the early 1990s, Sun Dial were a critics' favourite, the perfect assemblage of grunge, shoegazing and moody late 60s psychedelia. After a lengthy sabbatical, they're back with an album that effortlessly straddles stoner rock, grunge and even metal in places.

Founded by Gary Ramon, Sun Dial carved out a niche with an uncompromising zeal and their own unique imprint. Now with long-term collaborator (and ex-Chapterhouse bassist) Russell Barrett on board, they have returned with a brand new studio album (their first since 2003's Zen For Sale), their own label Shrunken Head (under the umbrella of Cherry Red) and a career-spanning 20th anniversary anthology, Processed For DNA, which has already received praise in the music press in magazines such as The Sunday Times and Record Collector.

This self-titled new album is darker, heavier and with a relentless focus brought about by personal adversity and the determination to show the band's musical talent with no tricks/studio gimmicks. This hardcore approach has led them to what they believe to be their best and most essential release.
