Drone behemoths SunnO))) have announced they will release their latest studio album, Kannon, on December 4th via Southern Lord.

Consisting of three pieces – Kannon 1, 2 and 3 – the album follows 2014’s Soused and 2013’s Terrestrials, their recent collaborations with Scott Walker and Ulver, and 2009’s full-length Monoliths & Dimensions.

Once again recorded with Randall Dunn in Studio Litho, Aleph and Avast!, the LP sees long-term collaborators Attila Csihar, Oren Ambarchi, Rex Ritter, and Steve Moore back in the fold. SunnO))) commissioned Critical theorist Aliza Shvartz to write the text/liner notes and Swiss designer/artist Angela LaFont Bollinger to create the artwork.

Kannon will be available on gatefold LP, CD and digital worldwide on December 4th, with a limited edition white vinyl available on Black Friday RSD, Friday 27 November.
