“exacting, weapons-grade, military-trained, merciless” – Rolling Stone
“One of the most forward-thinking metal albums I’ve heard all year and, for that matter, simply one of the best albums of the year in any genre.” – Treble
“…radically reinventing the possibilities of a band that has leapfrogged from good to staggering in a single record. ‘Love in Shadow’ is a testament to perseverance in the face of uncertainty…” – Pitchfork
Following the release of their acclaimed album Love In Shadow, SUMAC will be embarking on a West Coast tour throughout the month of January 2019, joined by Divide & Dissolve and Tashi Dorji. SUMAC plan to tour Europe later this winter.
Love In Shadow is a brutalizing dive into love and all its raw emotions. SUMAC are always searching for a new approaches and challenges. Turner’s nimble songwriting combusted with the road-honed intuition and technical prowess of his bandmates results in a sound that is at once complex and primal. Earlier this year, the trio released the collaborative album American Dollar Bill – Keep Facing Sideways, You’re Too Hideous To Look At Face On with lauded Japanese artist Keiji Haino.
