Exclusive Track + Tour Premiere: Sydonia – “Eyes Of Sand”
Seriously though, how great are Mondays!?
Okay, okay, stop trying to throw rotting produce through our office windows – the car mag guys are starting to get pissed. While we can’t change the fact that it is the start of another working week, we can aide your pain a little by chucking in a killer new tune to help you through it: Melbourne mind-blowers Sydonia have hooked us up with the first taste of their upcoming third album, and… Holy shit. Just… Holy shit.
Mixed by none other than drummer Sean Bailey, “Eyes Of Sand” is three-and-a-half minutes of nothing but pure, unfiltered sonic mayhem. It’s really no surprise that Slipknot and Lamb Of God frontmen Corey Taylor and Randy Blythe (respectively) rep these dudes on the regular – those echo-laden choruses; the crunchy lead riffs; those poor, poor snares: all of it just fucking kills.
And, once you’ve blasted “Eyes Of Sand” 4,307 times on repeat, you can catch Sydonia on their single launch tour throughout July and August. Bringing along a new set of local legends for every date of the run, they’ll be hitting Adelaide, Melbourne, Maroochydore, Brisbane, Canberra and Sydney in some of the country’s most respected venues (in other words, the ones where security won’t bodyslam you for doing a shoey).
Oh, and as for that little mention of the new album – bassist Adam Murray promises a harder, faster Sydonia with a stronger emphasis on all things heavy: “This album is getting back to what we and our fans love – harder, faster, heavier, stronger,” he says. “That’s what Sydonia in 2016 is about. We Can’t wait to smash these songs out for people on the road.”
