Suuns Tour with Handsome Furs. New Live Video

Suuns | FOR NO ONE from FOR NO ONE on Vimeo.

Over the past year Suuns have built a reputation for supremely intense live shows “full of thrash, immediacy, and spastic explosiveness” (Brooklyn Vegan), “with an unhinged intensity uncharacteristic of any band in their genre” (Death + Taxes) or more simply and direct “Drone Scholars” (New York Times) and the “#1 Best New Band of 2011″ (NME). We have brought you videos for “Up Past The Nursery” and “Pie IX” (NSFW) both of which capture the dark and dangerous aesthetic, but neither has properly captured the sheer force of Suuns live show. Now thanks to director Daniel Ryan of FOR NO ONE.tv, we have a new video that puts you onstage with the band as they cast their “Gaze” right into your eye sockets.

Suuns are currently tearing up the Summer Festival Scene in Europe and Canada with recent performances at Primavera Sound, North by Northeast, and 13 more festivals peformances yet to come including appearances at Pukkelpop, Off Festival and Greenman. But never fear America, in September Suuns will be touring with Handsome Furs in the West and will be playing select dates in the rest of the country in this fall along a headlining Canadaian tour and a co-headlining North American tour with PS I Love You.

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.

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.

Suuns Release New Video (NSFW), Tour with The Black Angels and Crystal Castles

Today we unleash a new, stark, dangerous, evocative, and sexy video for Suuns “Pie IX,” directed by Frederique Berube. It’s further proof that Suuns know exactly what they’re up to. The video is not safe for work unless you work where we do, where nothing is NSFW. You can also listen to the mp3 for “Pie IX” right HERE.
