Sumac readies release for Profound Lore Records

Sumac is a new band that needs almost no introduction as its lineup does the talking; the group’s core consists of guitarist Aaron Turner (Isis, Old Man Gloom, Mamiffer) and drummer Nick Yacyshyn (Baptists), with bassist Brian Cook (Russian Circles, Botch, These Arms Are Snakes) in place for studio and some live performances. Having recently formed, Sumac is excited to announce its debut album, The Deal, which will be available on February 3 from Profound Lore Records on CD and Digital formats and via SIGE on vinyl. Check out a sampling of the album’s steamroller-crushing heaviness and methodical free-range technicality now on YouTube.
They recorded six new tracks in Seattle in late summer of 2014 which would become The Deal with Mell Dettmer (Wolves In The Throne Room, Sunn O))), etc.). There, they were joined by Russian Circles/Botch/These Arms Are Snakes bassist Brian Cook who laid the pulse down for the album. The album was then mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge) at Godcity Studios and mastered by Mikka Jusslla at Finvoxx Studios in Finland and the end result is an absolutely crushing album.
Song premieres, tour dates, and more information coming very soon from Sumac and Profound Lore Records.
