Sumac has announced the release of their sophomore album, What One Becomes, due out June 10th. This will be a double LP, jam packed with dense, pulsating songs that is sure to trap you in its whirl of feedback. You can listen to the first single from the album, “Rigid Man,” below. It will pummel you with its relentless noise only to smash itself into the ground from the lurching underbelly of the guitar!
In What One Becomes, the band aims to convey the anxiety and cathartic release of the human condition. Turner explains, “Much of it has to do with questioning fabricated structures of identity and what it means when those structures are destabilized.”
You can preorder the vinyl or CD directly from Thrill Jockey.
