Germany’s Guano Apes have a long history, having formed back in 1994 and remaining active until 2006, when they broke up as guitarist Henning Rümenapp, bassist Stefan Ude and drummer Dennis Poschwatta all focused on new projects. All our now back in reunited form with vocalist Sandra Nasic after a highly successful return gig in Austria in June of 2009. The band’s 1997 debut, Proud Like a God hit gold and platinum status in various parts of the globe on the heels of hit single “Open Your Eyes”. Now in 2011, Guano Apes is back with their first set of new material since 2003’s Walking on a Thin Line. Bel Air hits North America this 21 June, following a #1 showing earlier this year in their home country, where it literally opened right at the top of the charts. Today we present the US online premiere of the group’s new tune “Sunday Lover” from Bel Air.
