SUSTO Adds Vancouver Date to N. American Tour

Comments Off on SUSTO Adds Vancouver Date to N. American Tour

Charleston-based SUSTO is adding new North American dates, including a show in Vancouver’s Cobalt.

The South Carolina five-piece band, SUSTO (pronounced “soos-toh”), has made a name for itself in recent years playing high profile festivals including Austin City Limits, Stagecoach and AmericanaFest along with opening slots with Shovels and Rope, Band of Horses, Iron & Wine, Shakey Graves, Langhorne Slim, Futurebirds and Heartless Bastards. This past fall, SUSTO performed a Facebook live-streamed session for NPR Music’s Night Owl series.

& 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 its self-titled debut in April 2014, which Charleston City Paper describes as “Southern Gothic country through and through.” The following year SUSTO recorded 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.
