SUNN O))) announce details of new album Kannon

SUNN O))) have announced details of their new album Kannon, to be released by Southern Lord on 4 December. Kannon follows the group’s collaborations with Scott Walker on Soused and Ulver on Terrestrials (both 2014), but it’s their first standalone studio release since 2009’s Monoliths & Dimensions. The album was recorded and mixed with Randall Dunn in Seattle and includes contributions from Attila Csihar, Oren Ambarchi, Rex Ritter and Steve Moore, among others. Critical theorist Aliza Shvartz contributes sleevenotes while Swiss designer/artist Angela LaFont Bollinger created the cover artwork and French photographer Estelle Hanania shot the core trio – Csihar, Anderson and O’Malley – for the package.

Kannon will be available in gatefold LP, CD and digital formats. A limited number of clear vinyl LPs will be released for Black Friday Record Store Day on 27 November. More information can be found at SUNN O)))’s website.
