Event Details

English indie rock band Gengahr are heading to our place to celebrate their new album Red Sun Titans - the sound of a band reborn.

Harnessing the energy and inspiration of their past but with a bold and fiercely independent vision for the future, this show is not to be missed!


Red Sun Titans will mark the band’s first full length release since Sanctuary [2020] and sets Gengahr on an exciting new trajectory. Having passed through the happy-to-be-here phase of debut album A Dream Outside [2015] and traversed the baggage of adversity and tragedy that underpinned Where Wildness Grows [2018] and Sanctuary [2020], Red Sun Titans sees the band wrestle free from those energies to set sail anew.
Entering the studio with Matt Glasbey (alt-J, Coldplay) producing and mixing - with executive production by Charlie Andrew (Wolf Alice, London Grammar, Bloc Party, all three alt-J albums) – the band saw a chance to revisit the origins of where their creativity came from.
 The album developed out of self-analysis and resultantly is one of two distinct sides: one a naive counterpart longing to exist in a simpler state, and another about checking your ego and coming to terms with great loss. Red Sun Titans sits at that crossroads where the past is still in view and to be learned from, but the future is there for the taking. It’s the ambitious, unrestrained and widescreen statement Gengahr have always threatened to make.
“'Red Sun Titans' the album is a dedication to reflection and an exploration of the bigger picture. Given the time and space to carefully consider what comes next, the record focuses on living without regret and embracing life's journey in its entirety. At times the songs on this record act as a road map for the mind, little reminders of how I want to exist.
The title 'Red Sun Titans' manifested itself like a cartoon series I would have been obsessed with as a kid. I imagined this trippy, sun scorched dystopian landscape half dream half reality and knew that this is where the songs should live.”
