Sunn O))) add NYC listening session + more to upcoming tour

As mentioned, drone/doom metal cult Sunn O))) will release Life Metal, their first new studio full-length record in four years, on April 26th via Southern Lord, supporting the effort with U.S. shows.

The tour includes a stop at NYC’s Brooklyn Steel on April 25 [TIX], and a just added Life Metal listening gathering at Brooklyn’s Future Space on April 13.

“The experience will feature a tower of loudspeakers, engulfing walls of fog, and throbbing color,” says a press release regarding the listening event. “A congregation of guests are invited to traverse the outer zones of consciousness and expanses of the cosmos through sound/time and sound/energy. This event is free, open to the public and available on a first come, first serve basis. RSVP now.”

Additionally, The Institute of Light in Hackney, London will also host a public listening party on April 9.

Here’s more info from Sunn O))), “With great pleasure we present a few special public deep listening sessions of our forthcoming album Life Metal. Our wish and intention are to offer the astounding presence, detail and color of this recording on great PA systems in a public situation as an introduction. Part of the joy of producing and mastering this album in the studio was that we were fortunate to be able to listen on the perfect high fidelity playback situations for the record, top precise studio sound guided by the best ears in the business. With these public listening sessions we hope to get a step closer to that experience of being inside the studio for you all at these special events, a few weeks before the album is unleashed upon the world.”
