The Mourning Suns Short Info

Six piece Birmingham Rock Band, lead by the unique voice of frontwoman Rosemary Wilkes and wily folk inspired finger-picking style of guitarist Anthony Williams. Along with the close female and male harmonies of Wilkes and Williams, the band’s stunning sound continues to impress; the gorgeous interweaving viola of Lizze Chan-Foxley; crunching guitar noise and virtuosic blues solos from Allan Young; and fierce heartbeat from bassist Ash Withey and drummer Ric Yarborough.

Since releasing their debut album Dreaming Of An Island in August 2015, after a two year hush, TMS are in high spirits; on the edge of unveiling their new album for 2018, eager to disclose their new heavy-country-rock-groove sound.

NEW ALBUM - Dreaming Of An Island - AVAILABLE NOW
iTunes - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/dreaming-of-an-island-ep/id1038426567
Bandcamp - https://themourningsuns.bandcamp.com

“I fell in love with this from bar one - with its arresting vocal, bizarre lyric and glistening ethereal production, it was quite unlike any other music in this week’s inbox. The voice belongs to Rosie Wilkes, the band themselves are from Birmingham, and this track comes from their debut EP Heavy Handed, currently available from their Bandcamp. The latest Mourning Suns single A Cloud was included by Roundhouse Records on their “30/30: Best of 2012” compilation album, for which Roundhouse teamed the group up with producer Dimitri Tikovoi (of Goldfrapp, Placebo, Horrors and John Cale fame).”
