NEWS: Sumo Cyco have bad news for us?
After a 3/10 review for their upcoming new album “Intuition” in Metal Hammer Magazine this month, we’re more intrigued to hear the record that will mark the third full length from Canadian Alternative Metallers Sumo Cyco and their debut for Napalm Records than we were before. After all, why would a major label pick up the band if they thought the album wasn’t up to much? Curiosity killed the cat. They’ve dropped another DIY music video with the record surfacing on 7th May, this time for “Bad News“.
Frontwoman Skye “Sever” Sweetnam says about “Bad News”: “I’m sure many people can relate to feeling like everyday is ‘Bad News’ over and over again. There was a point in 2020 when I was so glued to the news and current events it felt like my personal identity was fading away into an abyss and replaced with a scrolling, media consuming robot. It made me miserable, but I felt like I had a responsibility to know what was going on. It took me a while to peel myself away from the constant barrage of negativity and find a balance.”
Sweetnam adds about the video: “The music video was really fun to film. I’m so lucky to have band members who are willing to get pretty weird with me. Once the make-up and prosthetics were on, the guys and I came to life as our Cyco Terrornaut family. I included some obnoxious color combos that almost make you question your sanity when you watch the video.”
