    1Damage Done [2012]


    With a desire to tell compelling stories, and experiment with inventive songwriting, New Sun formed as a reaction to the popular media-schlock music of the 80's and 90's. While running away from static commercial song strucutures, eight years of being in the test tube has bred a "less is more" attitude, tempered with the use of complex forms and rhythms. The foundation of the New Sun sound is designed to groove and appeal to a wider audience while making it fun and challenging for the artists.

    New Sun was founded in 1993 by D.L. Erickson (guitars) and Christopher Scott Cooper ( guitars, vocals, keys) in the San Francisco Bay Area upon discovering common interest in the classic Progressive Rock bands of the 70's. Soon after, the rhythm section duo of Alex Kley (bass) and Scott Landucci (drums) would answer an ad in a local music rag to complete the line-up. One year later, upon the departure of Landucci, Kley would bring in Chris Trujillo (drums, vocals), completing the line-up for the first two releases Fractured (1995) and Affects (1998). After supporting both releases in and around the Bay Area, Erickson decided to depart the band and follow his interests in ambient music and Guitar Craft (Robert Fripp). A year hiatus ensued then the remaining members began collaborating on Expectations (2001), retaining the embodiments of bands like Rush, King Crimson, and Pink Floyd, while adding newer influences such as Tool, STP, and Soundgarden to their musical arsenal.
    After a 6 year hiatus, the trio reformed and began work on new material. In 2009 2 new songs Damage Done and She Moved Me were released. The CD 7 track Damage Done was released in 2012.
