Sumac recently announced the upcoming release of their fourth album, May You Be Held, which is out October 2 via Thrill Jockey. Today the avant garde metal band have shared the first new track from the album, titled “The Iron Chair.” It’s a dissonant, spacey, thorny and intense piece of music, which twitches to life slowly and then erupts into a soaring, electrified blast of noise and melody. It’s as much a continuation of what Sumac have been doing before as it is a step into strange new musical territory. Hear it below.
May You Be Held follows 2018′s Love In Shadow.
Sumac May You Be Held tracklist:
1. A Prayer for Your Path
