Sunrise Avenue play rock with a positive attitude. The band's debut album On The Way To Wonderland was released in 2006 (May in Finland, August in Germany). Sweden followed in February 2007. Sunrise Avenue was the first Finnish band ever to have an international record deal before their debut album was even published. The key element of their music is excellent songs that sound as good - if not sometimes better - when stripped and played acoustically; the catchy melodies and harmonious singing contrasts beautifully with the bass and drums that bring them to life.
