Sunbomb Feat. Tracii Guns & Michael Sweet: Share Visualizer Video ‘Light Up The Skies’, Sophomore Album “Light Up the Sky” out Now


Sunbomb, the musical alliance between two steadfast warriors of the US hard rock/metal scene: Tracii Guns and Michael Sweet, have released their sophomore album, Light Up The Sky, via Frontiers Records Srl.

Developed as a tribute to the classic heavy metal of the 80s, Sunbomb melds influences of classic metal bands such as Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Dio, and Judas Priest.

To celebrate the release, the band shares the track “Light Up the Skies” and a visualizer to go along with it.

About the track, Michael Sweet had this to share: “‘Light Up The Skies’ is a raw track that takes you back to a time when music was driven by guitars, with powerful grooves that woke you up immediately. Me and Tracii could not be happier with the results. In a time where computers rule, we’re trying to keep the human side of hard rock alive.”

Like its 2021 predecessor, “Evil and Divine,” the music here is once again very heavy and firmly planted in the ‘metal’ category, with a wink to a traditional approach to the genre. While Tracii wrote the music for the album, the fact that Michael Sweet has been writing in an increasingly heavier style on latter-era Stryper albums made him a perfect vocalist for the album.

Tracii first leaked the news of the SUNBOMB project in a March 2019 tweet, where he described the band’s approaching debut LP as “the Metal record I would have made when I was 17 years old.” then, in May 2020, he mentioned on Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk that:

“(‘Evil and Divine’) is really kind of like [L.A. Guns’ 2019 album] ‘The Devil You Know’ times three. It’s more on the heavy side of ‘The Devil You Know’ album. And Michael Sweet, he’s a really fantastic metal singer.”

About ‘Light Up the Sky,’ Michael had this to say:
“I’m always humbled to be a part of a project like this. This album takes the SUNBOMB vision to another level with killer songs and amazing energy. Tracii really delivered on the riffs and it made it very easy for me to come up with melodies that were fitting for each song. It’s different yet familiar at the same time in the best of ways. We’re very fortunate to be working with a label that still believes in the best music in the world – rock!”
