SUNN O))) - To Release Triple Live Album From First Moscow Performance

  • Print

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 НЕЖИТЬ: живьём в России 11 августа 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 НЕЖИТЬ: живьём в России 11 августа 2015 on 29th May in a limited pressing on three slabs of 12" vinyl housed in a Stoughton gatefold jacket with a digital download code included.
Sunn O)))'s current tour will be followed later this month with the band's participation in Moogfest in Durham, North Carolina on 21st May. In June, they will tour through St. Louis, Chicago, Cleveland, and Detroit on their way to tow major Canadian festivals; Unsound Toronto at Luminato Festival on 10th June, and Suoni Per Il Popolo Festival in Montreal on 11th June. The band then crosses the Atlantic for shows in Amsterdam and Ghent preceding their return to Hellfest in France on 17th June. A September 2016 European tour is to be announced soon, including a performance at the Ruhrtriennale under the artistic direction of the Dutch director Johan Simons where Sunn O))) will perform in the Turbinenhalle at an old power plant called Jahrhunderthalle Bochum; The theme of Mr. Simons' programme is "Seid umschlungen" (be embraced) - a gesture of social, political and geographical embracement. The tour will also include a special concert at "Labirinto della Masone" (Masone Labyrinth) opened in Fontanellato, near Parma in the northern region of Emilia-Romagna, Italy. Link
