Copenhagen’s psychedelic trio THE SONIC DAWN announce the release of their fourth studio album ‘Enter The Mirage’ this March 27th on Heavy Psych Sounds Records. The band share first groovy single « Young Love, Old Hate » today exclusively via Ghost Cult Magazine.
« Young Love, Old Hate » is the opening track of THE SONIC DAWN’s new album ‘Enter The Mirage’. On this soulful and stirring single, they not only lead us through the darkness but also into the orange sunshine. It is a journey full of psychedelic mystery with a clear message: « Only love is true, don’t let hatred get the best of you« . « Enter The Mirage » is arguably the most blazing and powerful album yet by the Copenhagen trio. It has an unusual live feel for a studio album, packing much of the raw energy and electricity that has made their psychedelic shows famous in the rock underground.

Frontman Emil Bureau explains about the album’s inception: « First I lost my father, then I lost my job and finally I lost my will to be a servant of anything that isn’t peace, love and freedom. It should be simple, but in this world it isn’t. Instead of getting back on the so-called career path, which is generally a dead end, I took a leap of faith, with the band’s support. »
‘Enter The Mirage’ overall theme is freedom, and visions that may seem too distant to be real, but only those who take the trip will ever really find out. Bureau spent half a year in a songwriting frenzy, spawning for The Sonic Dawn and also for his solo folk album (available soon on Heavy Psych Sounds). To give form to these song ideas, the band rented a space in the gloomiest part of Copenhagen, set up a studio there and rocked out for two months. The roughness of the place translates the determination from a tightly knit band. At the end of their long and laborious creative process, the band was completely broke. Fortunately, friend and former producer Thomas Vang (Roger Waters) allowed them to mix the album in The Village Recording at night, after his own sessions. Thanks to this and a skillful mastering by Hans Olsson Brookes (Graveyard), « Enter the Mirage » puts the high back in high fidelity.

THE SONIC DAWN is a trip – a psychedelic blend of styles, from jazzy sitar pop to heavy acid rock. The Copenhagen trio offers melodic songs infused with a ’60s West Coast flavor, laced with dreamy vocals and delivered with an explosive stage presence. Since the release of their acclaimed debut « Perception » in 2015 (Nasoni Records), the Danish rockers have been caught on several European tours, which highlights were the Freak Valley Festival or the Liverpool Psych Fest, who had them sharing the stage with Graveyard and White Hills. They also opened numerous shows for desert rock king Brant Bjork. With three past albums (« Perception » 2015, « Into the Long Night » 2017, « Eclipse » 2019) and some 200 shows under their belt, THE SONIC DAWN is definitely a psychedelic band to be reckoned with. They will release « Enter The Mirage » in March 27th via Heavy Psych Sounds Records.
