After more than a year in the making, Sundodger will release its first LP “Bigger Waves” on vinyl Tuesday, July 3, 2018. Listeners can order vinyl and digital downloads on BandCamp or purchase the record at area record stores.

Sundodger will celebrate their new record with a release show July 6 at Barboza in Seattle.
The album was recorded with the help of producer and engineer Shawn Simmons, who has been behind the board for countless Northwest heavyweights like Head and the Heart, My Goodness, Lemelo, and others. In fact, the entire endeavor was a Northwest-based effort as the album was mastered in Seattle by Ed Brooks (Resonant Mastering), lacquer was cut by Levi Seitz (Black Belt Mastering), and the record was pressed in Portland by Cascade Record Pressing.

“We really took our time with this record,” said guitarist/vocalist Dan Engel. “We did a lot of experimenting with guitar tones, vocals, and for the first time brought keyboards into the mix. The result is a cohesive collection of songs that will take listeners on a journey. It’s not just a list of disparate tracks.”

For the past four years, Sundodger has been honing their sound, which has been described as throwback album-oriented rock with heavy vocal and guitar hooks. They blend classic guitar rock with elements of punk and new wave to create a unique sound.

Sundodger was formed in 2014 by long-time friends and collaborators Jeff Norman and Dan Engel. The two joined forces with drummer Mark Fiebig and bassist Don Currie of the popular Seattle band The Betty Ford Falcons. The lineup is influenced by the rock anthems they loved from the past and the indie rock they produced through the '90s and 2000s -- all blended together to create a sincere, urgent rock show.

The new record is a follow up to 2016’s two-song release of “Keeping a Light On” and “Too Much Too Soon.” Sundodger debuted in 2014 with the five-song EP titled “Home.”
