Spiritual Beggars detail Sunrise To Sundown

Spiritual Beggars have announced that their ninth record Sunrise To Sundown will be released in March.

It will be available via InsideOut Music in Europe from March 18 and in North America from March 25. The Swedish supergroup will then set off on a European tour in support of the album on March 28.

The members admit that they juggled writing the record over the past couple of years while playing in other big name bands, such as Arch Enemy, Candlemass and Grand Magus.

Spiritual Beggars reissued classic titles Another Way To Shine, MantraIII, Ad Astra and On Fire on vinyl last year. Their last studio release was Earth Blues in 2013.
Frontman Michael Amott says: “I’m super excited about how the album sounds sonically. I think every album we have made has had its own vibe and atmosphere.

“I can honestly say this band has never made the same album twice. To me, Sunrise To Sundown is the next chapter of the book we’ve been writing since we started the band over 20 years ago.

“Of course, the foundation of our style is heavy rock music, but we always keep evolving adding new influences and colours to the band’s core sound.”

Former news desk member Christina joined the team in late 2015 and although her time working on online rock news was fairly brief, she made a huge impact by contributing close to 1500 stories. Christina also interviewed artists including Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and worked at the Download festival. In late 2016, Christina left rock journalism to pursue a career in current affairs. That's proved to be a massive success and in 2021, she was named Local Weekly Feature Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.
