SUMAC Shares New Single "Attis' Blade," Announce New Album

Ahead of the release of their September 21st album Love In Shadow, SUMAC have shared the album’s first, sprawling and epic single “Attis’ Blade.” The track traverses through thundering passages, waves of dirge-like contemplation, and barrages of spontaneous chaos.
Love In Shadow, is a brutalizing dive into love and all its raw emotions. SUMAC are always searching for new approaches and challenges. Turner’s nimble songwriting combusted with the road-honed intuition and technical prowess of his bandmates results in a sound that is at once complex and primal. Earlier this year, the trio released the collaborative album American Dollar Bill – Keep Facing Sideways, You’re Too Hideous To Look At Face On with acclaimed Japanese artist Keiji Haino. SUMAC guitarist Aaron Turner (ISIS, Old Man Gloom) explains: “While all Love In Shadow was written before our recording session with Haino, that experience further bolstered our confidence to travel further into territories free of preconceived structure and melody. Immediacy, intuition, and risk have become an increasingly important aspect of our music making.”
