Sunn O))) Announce New Albums “Life Metal” & “Pyroclasts”, Set Dates For U.S. And European Tours


Sunn O))) have announced that their new album titled “Life Metal” will arrive via Southern Lord Recordings in April with a tease of what’s to come available below. Recording sessions for the record took place last July with Steve Albini (Nirvana, Neurosis) at his Electrical Audio studio in Chicago, IL.

Among the guests who contributed to the album are Hildur Guðnadóttir, who sang and added cello and haldorophone to “Novæ“, Anthony Pateras, who added pipe organ to “Troubled Air” and Tim Midyett (Silkworm, Bottomless Pit), who added aluminum neck bass and baritone guitars to unspecified track(s).

That four song outing isn’t all the band have planned for the year however as a second album described by an official press release as being ‘more meditative’ will land in the autumn. That effort was also recorded with Albini and is titled “Pyroclasts“. Midyett and Guðnadóttir will also guest on it as well. Exact release dates for both records remain pending.

Meanwhile, Sunn O))) have rolled out the below dates with further touring in the U.S. to take place in September and a European/UK leg being booked for October.
