In a world where bands are aiming to please and to give people an “expected” style of music, Sydonia want to get sand in people’s eyes. They want you to do something. Whatever it is you feel strongly about, get up and fight for it or against it. The song is about suffering in the world and the apathy that people have towards curing it.


The four-piece gave their first taste of album #3 a few weeks ago, with the single becoming available on the 29th of July in time for the tour to start. It’s heavier, faster and all the passion, the anger and the angst is self-produced into the track.

Their clip for ‘EYES OF SAND’ dropped yesterday. The 3:31 clip features vocalist Dana Roskvist, as well as footage of war, famine and conflict and epic footage of the band’s live shows from the past two years since the release of Reality Kicks, their second album. Shot by Jaden Dickey (who has done a tonne of work for The Amity Affliction’s live show footage reels) and edited by Jaden and Dana (who are brothers), it feels like Sydonia are heading towards a massive album release and to the stages they play best on…big ones.

Watch the clip for ‘Eyes Of Sand’ here.
