“We’re globally better connected than ever before, and yet our hearts ache from loneliness. Instead of enjoying life, we virtually chase it on the screens of our smartphones.”
It’s this recognised disease of civilisation that Sunrise Avenue tackle musically on their fifth studio album, Heartbreak Century
(release date: 06.10.2017). It’s a return to real values, real feelings and real, genuine pop-rock. Members Samu Haber (vocals, guitar), Raul Ruutu (bass), Sami Osala (drums), and Riku Rajamaa (guitar) worked for almost twelve months with three different producers to create Heartbreak Century
. The tracks were recorded in Berlin, Helsinki and Stockholm under the aegis of German producer Nicolas Rebscher (Adel Tawil, Alice Merton) and the 25-yr-old Swedish producer Victor Thell (Alessia Cara, Alexander Brown) along with the band’s long-standing, regular producer Jukka Immonen.
In autumn 2017, Sunrise Avenue will be back on the road for a sold-out HEARTBREAK CENTURY TOUR through Europe. After a year and a half break from the action, the Finnish band is more than ready to perform and has added additional shows for 2018 - including at the Munich Olympic Hall.
