Roadburn’s admiration for SUMAC – and the members’ many assorted other projects – dates back years. And with a new album on the horizon, it has been the perfect opportunity to dive right back into the sonic alchemy that this trio make seem so effortless.  Ahead of the release of the new long player, The Healer, it’s our enormous pleasure to exclusively premiere a short documentary film titled ‘Six Hours 42 Minutes with SUMAC’.

This behind-the-scenes glimpse at the band was shot at a recent show in Boston and includes live footage and short interviews. The 15 min documentary, directed by Damien Neva, is an intimate look within the band and the liminal moments that make up touring life. From the careful calibration of their live sound – in this instance with assistance from Randall Dunn – through to the full cathartic force of their live performance – and everything in between; this ‘day in the life’ film captures the band perfectly. The Healer is due to land on June 21 via Thrill Jockey. For international Roadburners, SUMAC will be touring this summer in North America – count yourselves lucky to catch them at their most vital.
