CELESTIAL SON is an electronic progressive rock band from Copenhagen, Denmark. The trio sets out to uncover the unexplored and exciting intersection between modern synth-wave, pop of the 80’s, 70’s progressive art-rock and the 90’s melodic grunge. After working on new music the last couple of years, they now present their third full-length album ‘Planetaria’ featuring drummer Gavin Harrison of Porcupine Tree.
“New album, new sound and a new playmate – but the passion for the music is unchanged. We are extremely proud to show everyone our new album ‘Planetaria’. A new sound and direction, while providing a preview of the ambitions we have for CELESTIAL SON. It is with the utmost pride and joy that we welcome the legendary drummer Gavin Harrison as a feature on this album. I’m super proud of the songs and hope to take the listeners on an epic electronic prog-rock journey, with Lasse Hoile’s beautiful music videos and Gavin’s impressive drumming added to the mix. I hope you enjoy our first new full-length album since 2015”, vocalist and songwriter Rasmus Sjøgren adds.
Since being founded in 2003, CELESTIAL SON has released the EP ‘Misanthropia’ (2007), and two albums, ‘Doors of Perception’ (2011) and ‘Saturn’s Return’ in 2015. During the years, the band has toured extensively both nationwide and abroad, garnering a lot of admiration for their captivating, candid and astonishingly tight performances. In 2023, the band is gearing up for touring and promoting the new album which was released on November 4th through Prime Collective.
