UPRISING! Records is proud to announce that the French progressive metal unit SPHERIC UNIVERSE EXPERIENCE is now a part of its roster. The quintet from Cote d’Azur will release a new studio album, titled “Back Home”, in May 2022.
The band comments about the signing: “As a band, we are extremely excited about joining the impressive roster of talented acts at UPRISING!. A true honour. After years of hard work to deliver our best possible effort, UPRISING! was definitely the best home for our long-awaited new studio release. The five of us are looking forward to 2022!“
The early beginning of Spheric Universe Experience (S.U.E.) dates back to 1999, when guitarist Vince Benaim decided to create a progressive metal band. After a couple of years of composing own material, the band recorded their first official album demo in April 2003, entitled “The Burning Box”. The demo was sent to Intromental Management, who immediately fell in love with the band’s sound, and decided to offer them a management-deal. In the summer of 2004 S.U.E. signed a worldwide record deal with French label Replica Records. An American license was also inked with Nightmare Records. Four albums were released in the next few years, on labels such as Replica Records, Nightmare Records and Sensory Records.
Having toured extensively over the last few years; from France to Denmark, from Holland to Poland and from Italy to the USA, this band has explored the boundaries of the musical life within the genre, and have now spent the last five years, composing what is to be the absolute pinnacle of their career so far, namely the space-concept album “Back Home”.
Soaring riffs, stunning solos, pounding rhythms and vocals that just nails, supreme. With a superb production from the talented producer Damien Rainaud, the Symphony X, Dream Theater and Queen inspired music is a statement, carved in stone!
“Back home” does not only mean back home to Earth for the space-travellers in the story of the concept, but it also means back home for the band, as they have returned to their original roots: to compose and create true, progressive masterpieces, for every album they make. In space, no one hears you scream, but S.U.E. are definitely set to make themselves heard here on Earth with “Back Home”.
