Susto's 'Hard Drugs' Premieres on Consequence of Sound

Charleston-based SUSTO's newest track "Hard Drugs," from their highly anticipated album, & I'm Fine Today, premieres on Consequence of Sound, who call it, "Honest and reflective." See the post and listen to the single HERE; share HERE. The single is also available for download with pre-order of the album HERE. The full record is due January 13 via Missing Piece/Caroline.

In support of the new release, the band will headline twenty-four winter tour dates in the U.S. followed by a 17-city North American tour in support of The Lumineers. See below for a full list of dates. The five-piece band has made a name for themselves in recent years playing high profile festivals including Stagecoach, Austin City Limits and AmericanaFest along with opening slots with Shovels and Rope, Band of Horses, Iron & Wine, Langhorne Slim, Futurebirds and Heartless Bastards.
Earlier this fall, SUSTO performed on a Facebook live-streamed session for NPR Music's Night Owl series. You can check out the interview and performance HERE.
& I'm Fine Today was recorded at The Space in Charleston, SC. Of the record, founder and frontman Justin Osborne says, "Something to take away from it is just understanding and appreciating when you're not always fine. This album is about coming to terms with yourself and feeling okay with your place in the universe."
SUSTO is comprised of Osborne (vocals, guitar), Dries Vandenberg (guitar), Marshall Hudson (drums),Jenna Desmond (bass) and Corey Campbell (guitar, keys). The band name derives from a medical syndrome specific to Latin American culture that roughly translates as "panic attack."
The band released their self-titled debut in April 2014, which Charleston City Paper describes as "Southern Gothic country through and through." The band immediately followed up with a North American tour playing shows with Shovels and Rope and Band of Horses. In April 2015 SUSTO released a live album featuring Ben Bridwell from Band of Horses and later went on to be the support act for Bridwell and Iron & Wine on their fall 2015 tour. Daytrotter, via Paste, described the live performance as "breathtaking."
Earlier this year, SUSTO toured with Langhorne Slim, Futurebirds and Heartless Bastards and made debuts at Austin City Limits Festival, Stagecoach Festival, and AmericanaFest - Nashville. This summer they released the standalone single "Chillin' On The Beach With My Best Friend Jesus Christ," which premiered on Nerdist, who noted, "It's a catchy folk tune that functions as both bible camp parody and beachfront anthem. Regardless of whether you're a believer, non-believer, or something in between, it's tough to argue [the track] isn't a ton of fun."
