Ahhh I'm from New Zealand and I'm visiting North Cali in August! I'm staying near Mt Shasta but I'll be flying into Redding :) are there any sights you recommend checking out? Secrets only locals know ? Haha many thanks !

I’d visit whiskey town lake for sure, it’s the best lake in redding and it has a lot of history because it used to be a town until it was flooded. it has like sunken roads, and the water feels great.
Also the sundial bridge is pretty famous here. I’d look into those even though they’re not secret ☺️

Hey! We’re very, very excited to announce that we’ll be releasing a new Sundials EP later this summer! Holy butts we love this band.

Sundials have always been a band that’ve bounced around and done things on their own terms — releasing records with a slew of awesome labels like Kiss of Death and Eevil Weevil along the way. It was 2012’s When I Couldn’t Breathe (released on also great Asian Man), however, that straight up floored us. It is equal parts punk, pop and rock — all in perfect balance. This band has a special knack for harnessing John K.-esque lyrical imagery paired with pure feel-good musical peaks and valleys that demand to be turned up.

The band begins recording the EP this weekend at Noisy Little Critter in West Chester, PA with producer Mike Bardzik (Spraynard, Everyone Everywhere) whom they worked with on their last studio LP, When I Couldn’t Breathe. More details soon!

Until then, please listen to their bandcamp, and follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr — thanks!!
