SUSTO ADDS MAY DATES WITH THE HEAD & THE HEART

CONFIRMS HANGOUT FESTIVAL & I’M FINE TODAY OUT NOW ON MISSING PIECE/CAROLINE

Charleston-based SUSTO (pronounced “soos-toh”) confirms new tour dates supporting The Head & the Heart in May. This four-city stretch will lead into their debut at Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores, AL. The band’s 60+ headlining shows in 2017, plus accompanying dates with The Lumineers, are in support of their new album & I’m Fine Today(out now on Missing Piece/Caroline). See below for a complete tour itinerary.
Earlier this year, the band made their national television debut performance on “CBS This Morning: Saturday.” Watch the performance HERE and share HERE.
The new album debuted at #15 on Billboard Heatseekers Chart and #1 on Amazon Movers & Shakers Chart. The five-piece band has made a name for themselves in recent years playing high profile festivals including Austin City Limits, Stagecoach and AmericanaFest  along with opening slots with Shovels and RopeBand of HorsesIron & WineShakey Graves, Langhorne SlimFuturebirds and Heartless Bastards. This past fall, SUSTO performed a Facebook live-streamed session for NPR Music’s Night Owl series. You can check out the interview and performanceHERE. In January they performed live-streamed sessions with Rolling Stone and Paste.
& I’m Fine Today was recorded at The Space in Charleston, SC. Of the record, founder and frontman Justin Osbornesays, “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 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. Daytrotter, via Paste, described the live performance as “breathtaking.”
