The psychedelic circus known as Death Hawks, known for their innovative brand of modern rock music that's coated with Aquarian aesthetics, has entered into a contract with Finnish label Svart Records. The band's third album, Sun Future Moon, is set for release on November 13th on LP, CD,and digital.

"The new album's sound is even larger, more beautiful and diverse than before," says vocalist and guitarist Teemu Markkula. "As a band, we've strived for a much wider palette in every part of the process, from compositions to instrumentation and themes, and find the results satisfying. The songs deal with, for example, astrological myths of antiquity and the cosmos inside modern man. We consider the album both a logical continuation of the Death Hawks discography and also a step into a new age, in both meanings of the term. But, looking at the album from a simple point of view, we just tried to create a fascinating, melodic, and dignified album,

Svart Records' Tomi Pulkki sees the band's evolution as positive: "Death Hawks are by definition one of the most creative and forward-thinking rock bands in the country right now, and their attitude is international in a very similar manner to our own thinking. It was a joy to find out the band wants to work with us, and I hope the new album will blow a lot of minds wherever it may spin." "We felt Svart could be a safe home for the band, and that they could help the band conquer the world," says band manager Esa Tontti.
