During the period of quarantine due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the rehearsals were productive and helped Apnea to perfect its compositions and develop its style. After months of work, the band has finalized their long-awaited debut album, which will be released later this year. To promote the album, the band releases the first single, »Bus Ride«, which comes accompanied by a music video produced by Venice.

With a proposal to present a sound influenced by the music of the 70s and 90s, mixing grunge, heavy metal and stoner rock, the band Apnea built its sound with influences that go through A.S.G., Fu Manchu, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Cave In, Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. The album »Sea Sound« brings a unique mix of sounds, making Apnea achieve originality and personality within traditional elements of the aforementioned decades.

Formed by experienced musicians with projection and an extensive national and international career – members of the bands Ratos De Porão, Garage Fuzz and Bayside Kings – the quartet is considered a supergroup with local hero status in Brazil.

The recording was made again at Electric Sound Studios with production by André Freitas. Mastering was done by renowned producer Fernando Sanches at the traditional El Rocha studio, an absolute reference in mastering and production by the main names in Brazilian music. Cover art is by artist/tattoo artist Daniel Toledo, Brazilian tattoo icon and one of the main designers of the MCD brand.

The booklet features photos by photographer Jair Bortoleto, one of the great names in Brazilian photography, known for his work with landscape and surf photos, having his work published in the traditional magazines National Geographic, Surfer’s Journal, Ocean-ans and Drift, and with solo exhibitions in several Brazilian states, the USA (NY and CA) and Italy.

To complete the release of the album, the band recorded a video clip and produced lyric vide them aiming at a set of actions to promote the work, doing shows and tours wherever possible with a focus on building an international career like the previous works of their members, believing that it is essential to make the release of the album have distribution in different countries and continents to achieve their goals.

»Sea Sound« will be released on September 9, 2022. The band anxiously awaits your opinion on this great job!
