Southern Lord Recordings & Old Empire in association with Pitchblack Playback present:

Sunn O))) - 'Life 'Metal' - In The Dark

Pitchblack Playback host album listening sessions in cinemas, in the dark, inviting the music-loving public to experience albums in the most distraction-free way possible. The setting heightens your hearing, revealing new hidden detail and allowing you to fully meditate on your favourite music.

"With great pleasure we present a few special public deep listening sessions of our forthcoming album Life Metal. Our wish and intention are to offer the astounding presence, detail and color of this recording on great PA systems in a public situation as an introduction. Part of the joy of producing and mastering this album in the studio was that we were fortunate to be able to listen on the perfect high fidelity playback situations for the record, top precise studio sound guided by the best ears in the business. With these public listening sessions we hope to get a step closer to that experience of being inside the studio for you all at these special events, a few weeks before the album is unleashed upon the world." 
- Stephen & Greg / SUNN O)))
