ANNOUNCE New Album Images Du Futur
for 4th March via Secretly Canadian
STREAM First Single "Edie's Dream"
EU TOUR DATES for Nov & Dec
"… [their] debut is at once bleak, Haunting and heavy as f**k… You'd be hard pushed to find a better band from Canada…." NME 

"few bands this young are operating on quite this scale, and fewer still have the brass-- and the patience-- to pull off a big, glitzy, complex record like Zeroes QC."  Pitchfork 
SUUNS will release their second full-length album, Images Du Futur, via Secretly Canadian on 4th March 2013. The Montreal four-piece are also set to play a handful of UK and European dates including London's Village Underground on the 5th Dec, followed by ATP later that month. Full details are below.
The first single, "Edie's Dream," is available for streaming today HERE. Starting 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.
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.
Lauded by Pitchfork and NME with the latter declaring them 2011's Best New Band, Suuns have deepened their approach, using minimalist techniques to create maximalist works.
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 were recently invited to curate Sonic City Festival in Belgium and their line-up includes Swans, Beak>, Fuck Buttons and Tim Hecker.

"Montreal's Suuns have their sights set on the brass ring. Zeroes QC, their dank, oily, frequently metamorphosing debut LP, is one of the more industrious first goes I've heard in ages-- sleek, moody space-prog, self-assured, meticulous, and foreboding." PITCHFORK

"Suuns, from Montreal, are drone scholars...[with] rigorous strategy behind every gorgeous onslaught."  NEW YORK TIMES

"[they] play with an unhinged intensity uncharacteristic of any band in their genre." DEATH + TAXES

"A cunning fusion of kraut, post-punk, stoner rock, and disco funk tempered with a muted emotional disquiet" BROOKLYN VEGAN

"This could already be one of the debuts of the year." The Fly 

"From Zeroes to… heroes? Better believe it." NME
