Suns of July is a new band is a collection of veteran musicians of Toronto’s indie music scene. Their inaugural album which is set for release in the spring of 2020 explores many of the heavy issues that impact real life, i.e., loss, illness, bullying, and despair but feeds them through an optimistic lens assuring the listener that we are all in this together and if you keep your head up it will be alright. Musical influences for this band range from the 80s and 90s rock/pop eras to the sounds of today. Suns of July are excited to share their new album with the world.

On February 26th, celebrate international Anti-Bullying Day with their new single, “Beautiful You Are” is an anti-bullying anthem with a mission to raise awareness on the importance of this issue. Kosta Dimos, the lead singer who has performed with U2 in Montreal in 2015, was himself a victim of bullying in elementary school. ‘Beautiful You Are’ is his way of transforming his trauma into art and to create an inspirational message that could help thousands of kids and educators going through the same struggle.
