In anticipation for their upcoming second full-length effort, What One Becomes, the American/Canadian post-metal powerhouse SUMAC announced that they will be touring the Western US from May 20th through June 4th! The band will be rolling through Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas over the course of the tour.
The full route is viewable on the poster below!
SUMAC formed in 2014 by Aaron Turner (ex-Isis, Mammifer, Old Man Gloom), Nick Yacyshyn (Baptists), and the notorious Brian Cook of Botch and Russian Circles fame. With one full-length album, The Deal, under their belts already, these musicians have set out to brush the extremes of their music in What One Becomes. Taking the sound in both a more melodic, ambient direction - a la Russian Circles - while also exploring drearier depths in their sludgy, abrasively heavy passages. This all culminates admirably on “Rigid Man”, their first release off the album, which can be listened to here.
Recorded at The Unknown in Anacortes, WA, and mixed in at GodCity Studios in Salem, MA by none other than Kurt Ballou of Converge, What One Becomes will surely be regarded highly amongst the music community.
