SUNN O))) to perform at The Barbican, London @ Convergence Festival 21 March 2017


(press release from festival)

+ Hildur Guðnadóttir 
Tuesday 21 March 2017 / Barbican Hall / 20:00 
Tickets £22.50 – 27.50 plus booking fee
American drone metal masters Sunn O))) will make their Barbican debut next March, bringing their arrhythmic blend of extreme metal, drone, ambient, noise and minimalistic  music to the Centre as part of the Convergence Festival. Their music can be described as very slow, with distorted guitars, and the emphasis is on texture rather than rhythm. Sunn O))) was formed by core members Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson in 1998 and the band’s name is a reference to the Sunn amplifier brand. Over the years they have worked with a varying cast of collaborators including Attila Csihar, Ulver, Nurse With Wound,  Julian Cope, Scott Walker and Oren Ambarchi to name but a few. 
Support comes from classically trained Icelandic singer and cellist Hildur Guðnadóttir who has played and recorded with bands such as Pan Sonic, Throbbing Gristle and Múm, as well as her solo project Lost in Hildurness and has previously toured with Animal Collective and Sunn O))). Guðnadóttir also wrote the arrangements for the Wildbirds & Peacedrums session as part of the Barbican’s Nils Frahm curated marathon weekend Possibly Colliding in July 2016. 
Produced by the Barbican in association with Convergence  
On sale to Barbican Members on Thursday 1 December   

Tickets on general sale on Friday 2 December
