PRE-ORDER @ https://sumofr.bandcamp.com/album/lahbryce
Having morphed into a three piece, SUM OF R are currently making the necessary preparations for Roadburn 2022, where they’ll perform their new album, Lahbryce, in full. They already released one single titled Crown of Diseased from Lahbryce, but now we are thrilled to bring you a further glimpse into what you can expect from the album as Roadburn is premiering a live performance video of three tracks from the album, filmed at the DAFT studios last year.

Here’s what Sum of R mainman, Reto Mäder had to say about these sessions:
“The new Sum Of R trio line-up saw not only a transformation from an instrumental project to a band with vocals, but also an international expansion from Switzerland to Finland. Therefore it was clear to us that we wanted to use the few meetings all the more constructively, intensively and gratefully.
With this in mind, we booked a live recording day at the DAFT studios in Malmedy in early October 2021, directly following our first ever live shows with the new line-up around last year’s 24 Hours Of Deep Listening festival by Consouling Sounds in Belgium.
We chose the DAFT studios mainly because of the large live room, where we could set up generously in the middle of the room, but also build an intimate playing atmosphere by facing each other in a circle.
Playing these three album songs with lyrical themes of delusion, depersonalisation and trauma in pure daylight on a beautiful autumn afternoon gave a liberating acceptance and meaningfulness to these heavy topics."
