Former DIO Guitarist TRACY G Featured On New BLACK SUN Single (Audio)

North American rockers BLACK SUN have released the first single from their upcoming debut album, "Edge Of Darkness", which was produced by HYDROGYN guitarist Jeff Westlake. "Break Me", one of ten modern hard rock tracks from the disc, features Tracy "G" Grijalva, who makes a guest appearance and shows off his innovative playing in the guitar solo. Tracy is best known for his years with DIO — from 1993 to 1999 — where he was featured on two studio albums ("Strange Highways" and "Angry Machines") and one live album ("Inferno: Last In Live").

BLACK SUN came together completely by accident in the summer of 2011 when Canadian guitarist Brad Wilson decided to head Stateside to work on what was initially to be his first solo record. After making the decision that his voice just wasn't cutting it anymore, he enlisted American rock vocalist Azriel St. Michael (JEZEBEL'S KISS, AUDIO PORN) and by mid-February the record was finally complete.

"The album has a little bit of everything that me, Az and Jeff have done over the past couple of decades with a whole lot of everything all three of us envisioned as the future of rock music," says Wilson. "We feel fantastic about being able to take our songs to place we personally haven't been to before. As a producer, Jeff has this uncanny ability to take a good solid song and make it sound current and now we're beyond excited about getting the live band together and hitting the road."

"Edge Of Darkness" is expected to drop in July and the band is hoping to hit the road by the fall.
