SIANSPHERIC

The two-decade-plus-long existence of Hamilton, Ontario’s SIANspheric seems both improbable and poetic. The band’s remarkable debut, 1995’s Somnium, which Chart Attack ranked as #40 on the Top 50 Canadian Albums of All Time was followed by the expansive There’s Always Someplace You’d Rather Be in 1998, by which point the band was on the verge of emulating a solar flare, its brilliant eruptions fuelled by unpredictable and destructive forces, as the band broke up and reunited about a dozen times over those 3 years.

After 1999’s Else compilation and 2001’s The Sound of the Colour of the Sun, both hailed as classics in some circles, SIANspheric teamed up with Swervedriver’s Adam Franklin under his moniker Toshack Highway on the double CD EP Magnetic Morning / Aspirin Age. However, following 2005’s RGB DVD + CD collection and 2006’s I Wouldn’t Expect You to Understand 7″ SIANspheric lapsed into hibernation. The creative itch needed to be scratched though, and by 2009 the band was back at work, and following two 7″ releases in 2015, The Owl and I Draw the Line, October 2016 saw the release of their fourth full length Writing the Future in Letters of Fire, ending an epic 15-year LP drought.

Like planets aligning, at the same time, the reissue of the classic Somnium was made available on vinyl for the first time ever in a beautiful double vinyl package accompanied by digital treats that include unreleased songs and brand new remixes.

The band’s new album, Writing the Future in Letters of Fire includes nods to SIANspheric’s past while pushing forward — treading the line between calm and chaos… The album is a true past-meets-future revelation.

Crossing Canada for the first time since 2003 – celebrating the release of our new LP Writing the Future in Letters of Fire and vinyl release of our debut Somnium – fans of dream pop, post punk, psych rock, shoegaze and the like, don’t miss it!

Their first ever show in Lethbridge – it’s gonna be off. the. hook.
