With a modern sensibility, Sonsombre stand on the shoulders of beloved bands like The Wake, Suspiria, and Nosferatu, while playing a dark and energetic guitar driven Gothic Rock style. Founding member, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Brandon Pybus conceptualized Sonsombre in 2016. As the project took shape, “A Funeral For The Sun” emerged.
The decision was made to release the record independently. The response from the underground was immediate and positive, with many DJs, podcasters, and Goth Rock fans from around the globe expressing their appreciation for the spirit and execution of the album. Oskar Terramortis’ Post Gothic records (Finland) re-released “A Funeral For The Sun” on CD in January of 2019.
The sophomore record, entitled “The Veils of Ending”, was released by Post Gothic Records on 1 June 2019 to even larger fanfare, including the release of an official music videos for “The Future Is Black”, “Fear”, and “Matte Black”.
With a rapidly growing social media following and cult “buzz”, Sonsombre have performed at some of the U.S.’ biggest underground Goth/Post Punk/Death Rock festivals including A Murder of Crows and the San La Muerte Festival. Having signed to the legendary Cleopatra Records, Sonsombre’s third full-length album entitled “One Thousand Graves” was released on January 21st, 2020.
