At this time no other details of dates have been announced; aside from a couple of dates in Germany, Austria, Holand and Czechoslovakia, this is essentially a French tour; there are certainly no confirmed UK dates; hopefully the announcements and description that this is the bands ‘first’ European tour will see dates in the UK etc confirmed.

Formed in March 1998 Sunn O))) have been challenging the ways we think about music for the past twenty years since. A synthesis of diverse: drone, metal, minimalism/maximalism verging on the edge of pure sonic ecstasy, meditation and trance through the power, beauty and colour of sound pressure emanating from their legendary Sunn O))) backline and their earth shaking tectonic compositions of existence, dedicated to the mysteries of life and the cosmos.

SUNN O))) completed the recording of the as yet untitled forthcoming album in July 2018, the recordings were engineered by Steve Albini and completed at his legendary Electrical Audio Studio; the album is expected in 2019 via Southern Lord Recordings.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
