Following on from a jubilant response to recent album 'Images Du Futur', Montreal's Suuns return to the UK and Europe for a string of tour dates this Autumn. Starting with Liverpool Psych Fest on 26th September, they go on to play London's Village Underground on the 29th September before taking their visceral live show through Europe and beyond to Turkey. Full details of all upcoming shows are below, tickets are on sale for the London show now.
Montreal's SUUNS spent the winter and spring of 2012 writing and recording 'Images du Futur'. Their sessions were concurrent with the Quebec student protests that started in February of 2012 and continued through September of 2013. Set against a backdrop lead singer Ben Shemie calls "a climate of excitement, hope and frustration," Suuns aimed for an expansion of the musical ideas on their critically acclaimed 2010 debut LP, 'Zeroes QC'. Later in 2013, Turbo Recordings released a small collection of Images du Futur remixes from Clouds, It's A Fine Line, joeFarr, and Ivan Smagghe.
In the space between these releases the band has embarked on several tours in nearly all corners of the world, each member honing his individual craft, in turn greatly deepening their live performances. And seeing Suuns live is a physical experience; an audience alive and exposed to the electric, artistic chemistry so deftly delivered on record.
