The New Album Out 4th March
 
 
 
 
"When Suuns released their debut album 'Zeroes QC" back in 2010 it was excitingly eerie, but this ['2020'] ups the ante to become the soundtrack to your worst nightmares"  NME Track Of The Week 
Suuns' new album Images du Futur is available for streaming today at Deezer in the UK and Ireland a week in advance of its official release on Secretly Canadian. The band will follow up release with a long run of dates, starting in their native Canada followed by several shows at Austin's SXSW and continuing through North America and Europe.
 
 
Released on 4th March in the UK, 5th March in the US and by Secret City Records on the same date in the band's native Canada, Images Du Futur is available for pre-order at iTunes, Amazon and Secretly Canadian Distribution

Directed by artist Sabrina Ratté, the band recently shared their new video for '2020'. The black and white set piece is a dazzling combination of shifting geometric shapes and patterns mixed with the band's dissected live performance.
 
The band says, "Sabrina is a good friend and an amazing video artist. We've wanted to work with her for some time and this video was the ideal project. We shot some shots and she did her thing. What a trip." Like a desaturated trip to the Black Lodge, the video strobes to the woozy and vaguely sinister sound of "2020."
 
"Striking" Mojo 

"brilliant" Time Out
 
"The gentle psychedelia of Suuns is perfectly suited to the placid, unsettling visions that vocalist Ben Shemie is singing about here." - Pitchfork

"Suuns is clearly still making music that grabs your insides first and then engages your brain after, just on this one effort, they are doing it in a gentler, more restrained way—like the stroke of a lion’s paw before it unfurls its claws and tears your heart out." - Noisey

After touring North America and Europe extensively throughout 2011, the band spent the winter and spring of 2012 writing & recording in their hometown, Montreal. Their sessions were concurrent with the Quebec student protests that started in February of 2012 and continued through September of this year. Set against a backdrop lead singer Ben Shemie calls "a climate of excitement, hope and frustration," Suuns aimed for an expansion of the musical ideas on their critically acclaimed first record, Zeroes, QC.
 
The first single, "Edie's Dream," starts with a single repetitive bass line from which layers build & rise - first drums, then a wash of white noise; echoes of guitar, then chanted vocals. The song's clever shifts are jazz-touched and delicate, almost subliminal. It all makes for a stark, skeletal boogie — more an astral projection than a song, "Edie's Dream" shows us where Suuns are headed.
 
Produced once again by Jace Lasek from Besnard Lakes, Images Du Futur blasts out of the gate with "Powers of Ten," laying out a sort of manifesto for the record in the very first lines: "Got it together/I read in the paper/all of theses strangers/stranger and stranger.../No, no, no, no, how you try and remember/how all of these pieces/all fit together." Shemie says of the process, "As a band we were trying to look at our music from further and further away, seeing more details in the picture as we expanded the landscape." 
 
Suuns will be appearing in Austin this March for SXSW. The band will also be doing an extensive tour through Europe this spring, as well as a tour throughout the US and Canada, with a stop at Canadian Music Fest's Buzzfactor Series.
