Suuns Drop Fugazi Cover, Plot European Festival Tour

Montreal’s Suuns (say it with me now, “Sooons”) are disciples of Fugazi. There is no bullshit. It’s all adrenaline and mood. Suuns’ intense, blistering live presence, which has won them wide praise at SXSW and CMJ, owes a bit to the Fugazi legacy. Today, Alternative Press posted Suuns’ cover of the Fugazi classic “Long Division” — a rarity of Suuns’ live show.

LISTEN TO SUUNS’ COVER OF “LONG DIVISION”

Suuns are currently on the back-end of a North American tour with The Black Angels (Psych-rock tour of the year anyone?). In May, the band returns to Europe for a hefty tour that includes appearances at several coveted festivals — Spain’s Primavera Sound Festival, UK’s Great Escapes and Denmark’s Kilbi Festival. See all upcoming Suuns’ dates HERE.
