Sunn O)))) are pleased to present their first US tour since 2017, and the premier US tour of their 2019-2020 season. Including Rockefeller Chapel in Chicago, The Masonic Lodge in Detroit, The caves in Pelham, Tennessee and Brooklyn Steel NYC.

Formed in March 1998 Sunn O))) have been challenging the ways we think about music in the 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.

O))) has two core members : Stephen O’Malley and Greg Anderson, supported by a tribe of collaborators. From 1999’s The Grimmrobe Demos to 2018’s Downtown LA Rehearsal/Rifftape; from their now classic albums Black One (2006), Monoliths & Dimensions (2009), Soused (2014) & Kannon (2015) to their forthcoming to-be-revealed-but-recently-completed two 2019 album epics, founders Stephen O’Malley and Greg Anderson have forged paths and connections between the worlds of Metal, contemporary art, drone, new music, jazz and minimalism with startling results while remaining true to the eternal principles of volume, density, elasticity of time, blossoming of saturation viable only to the disciples and fetishists of electric guitar, synthesis, multiple gain stages and some of history’s greatest pure valve amplification.

Papa M
American alternative rock musician born June 25, 1968 in Louisville, Kentucky.

    I have wanted to see SUNN O))) since my early 20s. I have had many discussions with friends about their mythical, and nearly impossible to find shows (at that time). I remember talking to the proprietor of a music store who had been lucky enough to stumble upon an impromptu SUNN O))) show at a warehouse. To make a long story short he said it was a life changing experience. This is what I consider the purpose of music to be, much more than just sounds with a catchy beat. Music is there to enhance life and life experiences. So here I am, at 35 still having never seen this band. I am currently experiencing one of the most significant transitions in my life, with the death of my father at the beginning of the summer. I can think of no better way to help transcend to the next phase of my life than to witness and be part of an event with such significant energy and magnitude as this concert. This may seem silly to someone who doesn’t understand this band’s music. However, the pure vibrations in the music of Sunn O))) are both a therapeutic meditation and an emotional release for me personally. Attending this event would do my soul more good than I am able to express here.
