New York rock band Electric Sun will be opening up for rock legends Guns N’ Roses this Sunday at the House of Blues in Chicago. The band is also currently on display for all to see in New York’s Times Square as part of a Toshiba promotion. For the next week you can see a photo of the band underneath the 2012 Times Square ball.
In support of their debut EP The Gilded Cage, Electric Sun is gearing up for the release of their video for the first single “Don’t Look Back,” which will debut in the coming weeks. Be on the lookout for the video’s release. The 5 song EP, co-produced by lead singer Vlad Holiday and Dean Baltulonis (The Hold Steady, Brand New, The Gay Blades, Lissy Trullie), was recorded in Queens, NY.
Electric Sun is Vlad Holiday (lead vocals/lead guitar), Amanda Carl (keyboards/backing vocals), Steve Kellner (bass guitar/backing vocals) and Dave Tantao (drums). After a year and a half of writing songs about optimism, something Holiday explains he found “by sitting back and viewing other people’s negativity” he presented the material to his long time friends. Holiday’s goal is to “inspire people to do great things…I want to add soundtracks to their lives and give them a bit of extra fuel to get through the day.” Carl, Tantao, and Kellner all backed Holiday’s vision and ES was formed.
