The heavy-hearted UK trio will be journeying to the States this September for the band's first ever US tour in support of their upcoming album The Inside Room, which will see a North American release via Metal Blade on July 19, 2011. Here's a cut to check out:

40 WATT SUN is the new music project of singer/guitarist/songwriter Patrick Walker, best known for his previous band, much-loved UK doom legends WARNING. This new beginning sees Patrick Walker accompanied by drummer/percussionist Christian Leitch, best known as the guitarist and founder-member of London-based band THE RIVER, and bass player William Spong. 40 WATT SUN's debut album, The Inside Room, was recorded over three days and nights at The Library Studio in London. It was produced entirely by the band and engineered and mixed by bassist William Spong, and features five new songs of original material.

Following in the grand tradition of UK doom (and of WARNING themselves), 40 WATT SUN's sound is characterized by distorted guitars, down-tempo rhythms, soaring melodies, and by Patrick Walker's heartbreaking emotional, introspective lyrical themes and poignant, unmistakable vocals, all drenched in a heavy atmosphere of elegant despair.

The Inside Room track listing:
1. Restless (10:46)
2. Open My Eyes (10:44)
3. Between Times (6:55)
4. Carry Me Home (9:39)
5. This Alone (9:31)
