The album, Kannon, will be released in December and is their first release under the Sunn O))) name since 2009’s Monoliths & Dimensions.
However impressive their back catalogue of recordings is, the band are primarily a live act, with their performances transcending genre and form.
The live show is an experience in itself, which includes the songs being played at excessive volumes and incredibly slow tempos, a room completely fogged and the band playing in robes that resemble those of a monk.
Their sound has been described as “the sounds of the big bang and the end of the universe all at once” and fits in somewhere between “meditation and punishment.”
March 15 – Manning Bar, Sydney NSW
March 16 – Max Watt’s, Melbourne VIC
