Sunn O))) have big plans for this year as they intend to release two new albums. The first record, Life Metal, is scheduled to arrive tomorrow (19th) via Southern Lord Recordings as the band have already surprised their fans with an early vinyl release on Record Store Day (13th). Today (18th) the group are streaming the album in full via NPR.
Life Metal is the group’s first full length effort since 2015’s Kannon, which was recorded this passed July in Chicago at Electrical Audio (Studio A) with Steve Albini. Sunn O)))’s second effort for this year will have more of a meditation style as Pyroclasts is expected to arrive sometime this fall.
