SunCity Records Officially Out of Business

Recommended Posts

What's up with them? I haven't heard any news in forever, & dammit I was really looking forward to the Femme Fatale release. Are they still around?

I think David recently posted on melodicrock.com

 

Someone asked him about Suncity and he never replied.

It's hard to find the last 4 Suncity releases......I know Wishing Well tried to get them and failed also NEH doesn't have them anymore.....doesn't look good for Suncity....I'm not even sure I should order them directly from Suncity...

I got an e-mail from them several months ago. I was asking when Live Tongue's second album was going to see the light of day. I don't remember the exact wording from the e-mail, but the jist of it was that yes they were still around and the upcoming albums were still slated for release at an undisclosed time.

Last I heard, Babe Blu was going to be released on Suncity Records, but who really knows...

Recent I texted David about something which was written on Melodic Rock, and he texted back he was looking at. He hasn't been heard since.

I think Suncity is in Australia...?

Maybe someone can go there and ask... :D

Great label indeed...

Yep, based in Victoria, Australia, I believe. There was another thread here the other day with a note confirming the label was still in action with a few releases on the horizon... most notably, imo, the Baby Blu one.

So is it safe to assume this label is no more? :unsure:

Look at what Suncity's wikipedia page says:

 

Suncity Records is an Australian record label that specialized in releasing melodic rock and hard rock CDs. The label mostly focused on previously recorded, but unreleased, material. They were no longer online as of August 2011 leaving numerous bands without their compact discs.

What a shame. I loved most everything I bought from SCity. I know JetRed just reissued Flight Plan on their own. Its a great album.

It's pretty clear from discussion here and at MR that Suncity Records is now defunct. Moreover, David Moors is avoiding contact with anyone and everyone about the label, including his former clients, even retaining masters and CDs that belong to others.

 

I've changed the title of this thread and am stickying it.

I got an email from Myspace telling me to check out David Moors new profile. Could that mean something is in the works?

I'm not sure what he would have in the works. Word on the streets is he screwed over a lot of bands...

    • Everyone seems to have missed this one - very nice. Love that typical Scandi melodic rock/AOR sound. Can't wait to hear the album.
    • I hope they mean album, and they're not just going to release a few singles. This is probably my favourite band of the current era - well, alongside Midnite City now... but I question their desire to release music. Everything seems to be really slow and drawn out with these guys, which is unfortunate. The end product is magnificent, and I understand they might have other commitments... I just wish there was more music. Two albums from 2012 to now is less than desirable from a great band.  That said absolutely cannot wait for anything new from them. 
    • Oh dear, mate. Steer clear of this new album then. It's a piece of shit. I've liked this band too, but it's really bad. They've gone the route so many modern rock band go that frustrates the shit out of me... just turned into some shitty kind of retro pop act. I don't mind the sound alone, just never understand why the song-writing, along with the balls, goes to shit. Just like the new 5SOS album. Hate when bands do this.  Oddly enough, they make a random late run towards the end of the album, with 'Paradise,' 'Lullaby' and 'My Beast' to try and save the album. Those three songs are all pretty good, but the damage is done and the rest is wretched.  If you enjoyed these guys being a rock band, seems that dream is over.  
    • YUM! This is what I look forward to from Mr Atkins, as decent as Nordic Union can be at times. But this is clearly where his passion truly lies, and it shows in the output. 
    • Jeez that 'We're gonna make it song' is catchy - I'll give 'em that. 
    • Is there actually anything more frustrating than a great band not releasing music for several years, and then returning to the fold with a shit cover? I think not. Rubbish song - hate it. I don't know the original and hearing this I sure as hell don't want to know it either. Shut up unless you're recording new original music, I say.
    • Nice. Super consistent band, always delivery a quality product. I really like this one too. 
    • luckily I haven't got a clue who Climie Fisher is. 
    • Think I’m elevating this one to my fave of the year. Weeks later I keep coming back to it time and again. This ones catchier than an autumn cold.   
    • Aerial - "Cuz I Know" taken from the "Crazy Over You" CD
