Sunn O))) Announce 2017 Tour Dates
PSA for Sunn O))) fans: the band has announced a bunch of new tour dates for March. To make the tour extra-special, Sunn O))) will be playing two notes every night — a 100% increase over the number of notes they normally perform in a set. The first note will begin each night at 7pm sharp and conclude at 9pm. The second, admittedly shorter note, will then be played until 10pm.
Okay I made up that last part. But they really are going on tour in March. Dates are at the bottom of this post.
Something else Sunn O))) are really doing: offering a free track and digital sale for the remainder of 2016. Want details? Take it away, press release!
“Fans can now find the exclusive track «青木ヶ原 // 樹海» (aka “Aokigahara // Jukai” from the flexi 7″ which was released together with some vinyl copies of Kannon) for free download through the end of December at this location. To take advantage of the 35% Bandcamp discount, go to sunn.bandcamp.com or sunn-live.bandcamp.com and enter discount code SOLSTICE2016.”
I’m listening to «青木ヶ原 // 樹海» now. At least, I think I’m listening to it. It sounds like I called into a talk show but didn’t turn my radio down, and then every now and then some guy grunts. Sunn O))) fans should love it.
