Sunn O))) tour Europe in 2019

Stephen O’Malley and Greg Anderson will perform with long time collaborator Tos Nieuwenhuizen and selected guests, marking two new albums

Sunn O))) will kick off a tour next year, making for the first one since their 2016 stint. The show will feature their first ever French tour, although it doesn't include Paris. Instead they'll be visiting Lyon, Nancy, Dijon, Rouen, Tours, Nantes, La Rochelle and Bordeaux. They'll also return to Kampnagel in Hamburg, Paradiso in Amsterdam, and will headline Elevate festival in Graz, and Divadlo Archa in Prague.

Although full details are yet to be revealed, the tour marks two recently completed album epics. “Rejoin them in their glorious pursuit of the monumental heaviness,” says the announcement. Support acts include Puce Mary, Golem Mecanique, Lingua Ignota, and Robin Fox presenting Single Origin.
