Suuns have just been announced as the curators for this
year’s SONIC CITY Festival in Belgium
on December 1 and 2. Following in the footsteps of Millionaire (’07) and
Dälek (’09), Deerhoof (’10), Liars (’11), Suuns have chosen an impressive line
up for this year’s edition. The band came up with a list that contains a
mix of legends, influential underground bands, truly hot break-through acts and
brand new discoveries. The first round of acts to be announced include SWANS,
Demdike Stare, Tim Hecker, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, and Han Bennink. Suuns will
also perform. 

 

This will be the fifth time that host venue De Kreun has
organized the festival with a winning formula that hasn’t changed over the
years in which a tastemaker artist is invited to select the festival’s
line up. Thanks to this concept,
each edition of Sonic
City is totally different
with a new look, a different perspective, surprising choices and an enormous diversity
in musical acts. 

 

Suuns will also perform at this year’s ATP in December,
curated by The National as well as one off dates in Paris
and London. The
band is currently in Montreal working with
producer Jace Lasek (The Besnard Lakes, Sunset Rubdown, Wolf Parade, Land of Talk) on the follow up to 2010’s Zeroes
QC.
