Sunn O)))’s New Album “Life Metal” Will Be Released As Part Of Record Store Day

Sunn O))) have announced that physical copies of their new album “Life Metal” will be released on April 13 as part of this year’s Record Store Day. The effort will be available on CD and vinyl in U.S. independent record stores and on vinyl in European/UK record stores. The album will then hit digital outlets and other retailers on April 26. As previously reported, the band are also planning to release another new album titled “Pyroclasts” in the fall.

In other news, the group have also announced a couple of album listening parties. Those will be held on March 31 at Gaîte Lyrique in Paris, FRA (RSVP here) and on April 9 at The Institute Of Life in Hackney, London (RSVP here). The band said the following about that:

“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.”
