​Sunn O))): New European tour dates and "Life Metal" full album stream

In support of the new album "Life Metal", the American drone metallers Sunn O))) announced a series of European concerts for this October. The full album stream of the band’s latest record can be found above.

"Life Metal" is the first Sunn O))) album released via Southern Lord Records. It came out on April 3, 2019. According to a press release, Sunn O))) co-founders Stephen O'Malley & Greg Anderson set started working on the album in the very beginning of 2018. Musicians met twice last spring to write material in the very building where the band was formed: Downtown Rehearsal in Los Angeles. In early summer, a pre-production album was held at Dave Grohl’s 606 studios in Northridge, California.

The LP version is an AAA album recorded and recorded on tape solely using analog equipment. The album was mastered and lacquers cut from tape in October by Sunn O))) ally Matt Colton at Alchemy in London.

It was also reported before that Sunn O))) for the first time since 2015 will return to Berlin this June:
