Suit of Lights recently shared “Break Open the Head,” their first track off of upcoming album Break Open the Head - expected out June 6, 2016.
Suit of Lights is a genre-defying four piece band created in 2003 by Joe Darone, a former member of The Fiendz and The Rosenbergs. Unsatisfied with creative standstill, SOL tastefully blends bits of 60's pop, punk, progressive rock, metal, jazz, and baroque pop into their music, ensuring each new Suit of Lights album will be a unique, unexplored aural journey.
Darone says, “Some bands go for 30 years with one sound, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But that’s boring to me.”
Darone accessed a love for art and music at an early age. Since then, his drumming has taken him places like CBGB to The Fillmore, from opening for The Ramones with The Fiendz, to touring with Echo & The Bunnymen with The Rosenbergs. Darone is also a visual artist, and has produced artwork for Madonna, Agnostic Front, and Van Halen under the pseudonym Zeckle. Currently, he’s creating the album art for all Suit of Lights releases.
Break Open the Head follows Shine On Forever, which reached critical acclaim and was included in "Top Albums of the Year" lists by Brooklyn's The Big Takeover and the UK's Instrumental.
Produced by Tim 'Rumblefish' Gilles, Break Open the Head is an energetic leap forward, seeming dense and challenging, yet very accessible and catchy. The music is an expression of psychic upheaval through art, embodying music’s exceptional ability of transporting listeners to a higher consciousness.
