This just in: sunn o))) to take the Unsound Toronto stage on June 10!


Catch their first Canadian appearance in a decade as part of Luminato Festival at the massive and majestic Hearn Generating Station. And this is just the first name of a massive Unsound Toronto line-up that’s yet to be revealed. Expect the unexpected, with contrasts in style and genre that ONLY Unsound would dream up. We promise it’ll be epic.

“sunn o))) is unlike any other band live, their sound unrivaled in terms of power – a physical as well as aural experience that verges upon ritual. All sunn o))) shows are of course unique – but the concert at Unsound Toronto stands out for two reasons: it's their first Canadian appearance in a decade (timely as Luminato Festival celebrates 10 years), and it takes place in the immense, decommissioned Hearn, where the abandoned architecture could not be more fitting."
— Mat Schulz, Unsound Festival

About sunn o)))

For sixteen years, sunn O))) have been challenging the way we think about music. From 1999’s The Grimmrobe Demos to 2009’s Monoliths And Dimensions, core members Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson have forged connections between the worlds of Metal, Drone, Contemporary Composition, Jazz and Minimalism with startling results while remaining true to the eternal principles of volume, density and weight. Recently, sunn O))) have established a Bandcamp page which serves as an exhaustive archive of their entire back catalogue, including rarities and essential live material, and February saw the long-awaited release of their collaborative album with Norway’s Ulver (Terrestrials). The current live line-up, consisting of Stephen O'Malley, Greg Anderson, Attila Csihar and Tos Nieuwenhuizen, is poised and ready to resume live activities. All hail.
Unsound Toronto is supported by the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Toronto and the Polish Cultural Institute of New York.
