SUNN O))) To Release Triple Live Album From First Moscow Performance; Band To Play Levitation And West Coast Shows This Week
Tags: SUNN O)))
SUNN O))) has announced the impending release of a brand new triple-LP live album, captured on the band’s first ever performance in Moscow last year, titled ??????: ?????? ? ?????? 11 ??????? 2015 (translated, NOLIFE: Alive In Moscow 11 August 2015).
In the summer of 2015, SUNN O))) was invited to perform in Moscow, Russian Federation. The experience and the concert went beyond everyone’s’ expectations…. extremely raw, punishingly loud, and ultimately transcendental. Capturing this intensity of this special show, the band’s set was recorded direct from the soundboard as well as the audience. These two recordings were conjoined and mixed by Joel Grind and mastered by Brad Boatright, both at Audiosiege. The members of SUNN O))) are grateful to the amazing audience in Moscow, all who attended, and their hosts for their gracious hospitality surrounding this performance.
Southern Lord will issue ??????: ?????? ? ?????? 11 ??????? 2015 on May 29th in a limited pressing on three slabs of 12″ vinyl housed in a Stoughton gatefold jacket with a digital download code included.
Following their massive performance at Big Ears Festival trailed by several other Southeastern US dates, SUNN O))) will travel to Austin, Texas to take part in Levitation 2016 with the likes of Brian Wilson, Animal Collective, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Sleep, and many more this weekend, followed by shows in Denver, Albuquerque, Tucson, Los Angeles, and Oakland.
