SUMAC























Sumac is a new band, the core membership consisting of myself and Nick Yacyshyn (also of Baptists). We have completed our first record "The Deal" which will be released via Profound Lore (CD), and SIGE Records (LP) in Feb 2015. Bass on the album was done by Brian Cook (Russian Circles, Botch, etc), who will hopefully join us as an auxiliary/intermittent member for live performances when possible. We are pursuing this as a fully functional band rather than side project, with plans to play live in the coming year and continue with further writing/recording thereafter.

The album was recorded by Mell Dettmer at Litho and Aleph in Settle, with additional recording done at home. It was mixed by Kurt Ballou at God City, Salem, MA. Artwork is underway, a collaborative process between Faith Coloccia and myself - previews of that and audio clips to come in the next month or so.

Track titles are as follows:

1. Spectral Gold  (03:26)
2. Thorn in the Lion's Paw  (09:04)
3. Hollow King  (12:26)
4. Blight's End Angel  (10:19)
5. The Deal (13:34)
6. Radiance of Being  (05:25)
