Sunn O))) will return with 'Life Metal', their first studio LP in four years, this April.

The follow up to 2015's 'Kannon' was recorded with Steve Albini at the producer's Electrical Audio studios in Chicago. In addition to the band's co-founders Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson, it features contributions from Hildur Guðnadóttir on vocals and electric cello, close friend Tim Midyett on aluminium neck bass and baritone guitar, and pipe organ by composer Anthony Pateras.
