Sonic Jesus

Italy’s Sonic Jesus are one of the most revered outputs in the modern psych-rock scene. Following a split-single with Austin heavyweights The Black Angels, in 2015 the band released the hypnotic, droning psych-rock of their debut album release “Neither Virtue Nor Anger” to international acclaim. Earlier this year they released LP2, titled “Grace” it saw the band reinvent themselves, delving into more melodic, synth-driven horizons and channelling an expansive 80s-indebted new wave/post-punk sound.

Following a deep creative frenzy on the road during the European tour in support of Grace, Sonic Jesus are back already with two new songs  pushing past previous boundaries once again and reappearing with a new-found direction. The impassioned, introspective post-punk of Grace and take it down a sinister path. Whilst the reverb-drenched vocals, 80s synths and drum machines are still there, this is a far darker affair – the haunting, motorik psych-rock of their early material coming back with a vengeance.

Sonic Jesus is helmed by multi-instrumentalist Tiziano Veronese who handles vocals and all songwriting and recording duties, lyrics are composed by Marco Barzetti. The project was formed in Doganella di Ninfa, Italy in 2012 and has since gone on to tour relentlessly, sharing the stage with Damo Suzuki, Dead Skeletons, A Place To Bury Strangers and Singapore Sling along the way.

Song Premiere: Sonic Jesus – “I’m In Grace”

After the release of the widely praised double LP “Neither Virtue Nor Anger” and an intense period of touring around Europe, it seemed like Sonic Jesus’ fate was set to follow an already traced path .  Their hypnotic, industrial psych-drone has been transformed into a dense, synth-driven coldwave/post-punk sound.

Sonic Jesus is the darkwave/post-punk recording project of Italian multi-instrumentalist/composer Tiziano Veronese and vocalist Marco Baldassari. They formed in 2012, and immediately signed to Fuzz Club Records. Before they even had a record out, they were playing sold-out shows and getting rave reviews. In 2015, they released a double album of noise/psychedelic rock stuff called “Neither Virtue Nor Anger”, which earned them even more praise.  They’re set to release their highly anticipated sophomore album “Grace” via Fuzz Club on March 10th.

The new record is getting lots of advance praise, and some folks are saying that it’s reminiscent of Interpol and Editors.Following on from an incredibly well-received double LP and a split single with The Black Angels,This could be the record to break this band into the bigger scene after last years set at Liverpool Psych Fest.

New single ”Lost Reprise” from Italian band Sonic Jesus. The track will be featured in their upcoming album ”Neither Virtue Nor Anger” which is expected to be released on April 16th via the wonderful  Fuzz Club Records.

Sonic Jesus started to exist at Doganella di Ninfa (Cisterna, Italy), in March 2012. This project is a mutual collaboration between Tiziano Veronese, formerly drummer and now the real composer and instrumentalist player of the project and Marco Baldassari, lyrics maker and a self taught musician. This deep friendship pushes them to create Sonic Jesus, a pure union of music and lyrics. Tiziano is the music maker, he is responsible for every single note in this project, while Marco Baldassari focuses his attention on the lyrics which are going to top the music. After years of immersion in the atmospheres of music and poetry, they decide to collaborate, creating an artistic hodgepodge, to create and make their passion something real, in a well defined frame. Indeed the sound of the band is a mix of colors and music which experiences the sound of the sixties, folk music, shoegaze and kraut nuances, a self-aware and passionate sound who has travel and discovery as its own identity.
"Tomorrow begins the European tour
