Sunn O))) have announced their new album entitled Life Metal, will be released this April via Southern Lord Recordings. It is the group’s first full length effort since 2015’s Kannon as the recording sessions took place in Chicago at Electrical Audio (Studio A) with Steve Albini this past July. The group has recruited Icelandic composer Hildur Guðnadóttir who added vocals as well as the cello and haldorophone for the song, “Novæ.” Tim Midyett added a few neck bass and baritone guitars, and Anthony Pateras added the pipe organ to the song “Troubled Air.”

In addition to Life Metal, there will be a second more mediative style LP Pyroclasts, which is expected to arrive sometime this fall. The band will be touring in support of their latest effort as their Europe trek will start on February 28th in DE Frankfurt and their U.S run will kick off on April 17th in Cleveland, OH.
