Sumac released their debut LP The Deal last February on Profound Lore (Cd/Digital) and SIGE (vinyl), which rekindled Turner's classic Hydra Head Records forward-thinking sound and feel. The Deal received great critical acclaim; Revolver Magazine called it "…huge, crushing, and very down-to-earth and organic", and About said the album's "…monstrous, heaving riffs are so heavy it's not even fair", and has made countless 'Best Of' lists for 2015.
This past November, Sumac recorded a new LP - 5 songs at 59 minutes - with Kurt Ballou. The yet-to-be-titled album was tracked at The Unknown in Anacortes, WA, mixed at God City in Salem, MA and will be released in mid 2016. More news soon - for now, see Sumac on the road:
