The “Søndag” project was born in Piacenza from the ashes of Edema band in mid-2015.
The band started as a duo with Riccardo Lovotti at drums and Marcello Lega at eight-string guitar and vocals.
After a few months, Marco Benedetti joined in the project as second 8-string guitar and Riccardo Demarosi at bass guitars and lead vocals to complete the lineup.
Søndag is based on a heavy rock musical concept with very low tunings, influenced by different rock genres.
In February 2016, the band wrote its first 3-track EP and produced its first videoclip for “No,” which began shortly after a period of live on Italian territory that ended in early Summer 2016.
Exactly at that time, the band entered the studio and produced their first full-length album ‘Bright Things,’ recorded and mixed by Riccardo Demarosi and mastered by Alan Douches in the U.S.A..
(A.D. formerly engineer of bands as Converge, Mastodon, Swans, The Dillinger Escape Plan and many others )
‘Bright Things’ also marked the beginning of a collaboration between the band and the Italian record label Overdub Recordings, thus initiating a new period of worldwide promotion and international tours in countries like: The Netherlands, Germany, England, Wales, France, Belgium, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia.
After an intense tour season, the band decided to start a new collaboration with the New York City based label: Manifest Records.
A new album was born on December 29th, 2017 between this collaboration, ‘Stick To The Plan.’
The band promoted the album, supporting bands like: Rage, Firewind, Darker Half, Angel Witch in the early months of 2018 and kept on playing all over Italy for the rest of the year.
2019 marked the beginning of a new creative process since the band released its new single “Half,” which leads the way to a new musical path.
In 2020, the band was getting ready to release new singles as well, the first of the list was “Trendsetter” and in the end of August 2020, the band was ready to release a new one, “Titans.”

FROM THE BAND:
Although worldwide attention is currently (and rightly) catalyzed on solving pandemic problems, we feel the need to continue our adventure as musicians and friends, obviously in full compliance with the guidelines of prevention and social distancing. We have continued to work remotely to write new music in the past months and we want to continue doing it.
Unfortunately, this particular time requires substantial changes in the everyday life of the musician (for example the fact that we can’t practically play live inside and outside national borders), but we still want to continue releasing singles to keep up the attention and stimulate our creative path.
In these months, our new single “Titans” came to light: A song with strong sounds, always in full “low-tune” style, which reminds us how we always try in every way to appear strong, fearless and invincible, but in reality, we are nothing but “titans of nothing.”
“Titans” was entirely written and produced by us in Riccardo Demarosi’s studio, who mixed the track and mastered it.
The video, on the other hand, was half shot in Marcello Lega’s “That’s Motion” studio.
Motion graphics and editing have always been developed by Marcello in recent months.
