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 seesPatrick 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 Spong40 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 byPatrick Walker’s heartbreakingly emotional, introspective lyrical themes and poignant, unmistakeable vocals, all drenched in a heavy atmosphere of elegant despair.

1. Restless (10:46)
2. Open My Eyes (10:44)
3. Between Times (6:55)
4. Carry Me Home (9:39)
