On Sunrise Avenue’s fifth album, the Finnish pop-rock superstars analyse why we seem to have forgotten how to be happy and satisfied. Welcome to "Heartbreak Century"!
A good four years have passed since the Finnish band surrounding charismatic frontman and popular "The Voice Of Germany" coach, Samu Haber, released their gold and platinum-awarded, top 3 album "Unholy Ground" – their highest chart entry since the band was founded in 2002. And even the Scandinavian rockers' completely sold out headlining tours proved to be a true triumph over European stadiums.
It was just the right time for Samu to take a little (or a lot) of time out to clear his mind for new ideas after such a long period of non-stop hubbub. “I realised that I urgently needed space", the 41-year-old singer and songwriter remembers. "Time away from Finland, from the band and from my current life. So I grabbed my guitar and travelled the world alone for two and a half years." Australia, Los Angeles, London, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, Stockholm, Helsinki, Berlin are the diverse influences reflected in the sound of "Heartbreak Century".
You can feel a completely newfound freedom in the music. In addition to the classic, immediately-recognisable Sunrise Avenue trademarks, such as catchy harmonies, rocking guitars and Samu Haber's unmistakable vocals, there's the introduction of modern, urban folk elements, which give the quintet an unfamiliar, fresh and light-hearted sound nuance.
