Sound Shattering Sound is the major label debut by Perth alternative rock band Gyroscope released on 14 June 2004 in Australia and debuted a week later on the Australian album charts in the top 40.

Making of the album[edit]

The album was produced by Shaun O'Callaghan (John Butler Trio, Eskimo Joe) who had produced the band's previous two EPs. Gyroscope vocalist and guitarist Daniel Sanders says on the Festival Mushroom Records website.

"The music that drove us the most were albums like Weezer's debut, or Foo Fighters The Colour and the Shape. They were more of an adventure rather than just being a 40-minute album. I think we got there in the end."


The first single from the album was "Safe Forever", in April 2004. A video was recorded for the song, in which the band was playing in front of a large red screen. It gained the band a little popularity.

The second single was "Take This For Granted". In the video, the band was playing in what appeared to be a construction site throughout the song. Scenes of the band were mixed with scenes of police investigating a crime scene.

The third and last single was "Get Down". This also had a music video, which consisted of footage of the band playing live shows.
