Canadian rockers Sumo Cyco are getting ready to release their sophomore album at the end of March.

The band’s relentless touring schedule has taken them across both Europe and North America with the likes of Fozzy, Mushroomhead, Alien Ant Farm, Hed PE and Butcher Babies, to name but a few. Subsequently, Sumo Cyco has been gaining momentum with each and every visit to the UK.

Following a successful Pledge Music campaign, whereby Sumo Cyco achieved 249% of their target, the band went into the studio to record the follow-up to 2014’s Lost in Cyco City. To date, the band have previewed two tracks from their forthcoming album Opus Mar, including “Move Mountains (feat. Benji Webbe)” and “Anti-Anthem”. The album will receive its official release on 31st March. 

National Rock Review recently caught up with Sumo Cyco’s lead vocalist Skye “Sever” Sweetnam at the start of their co-headline tour with Devilskin at Think Tank in Newcastle to talk about their new record, the music scene back home in Canada, lessons learnt from their recent Pledge Music campaign and what it was like to work with Skindred’s Benji Webbe.
