It's with great sadness that the October Australian tour by Sunn O))) is to be cancelled.
Due to the high costs and complicated nature of presenting Sunn O))), in the way they like to be best represented, the promoter of the tour has decided that it is too difficult to continue presenting an Australian tour at this point in time.
If you purchased your ticket online or over the phone through The Hi-Fi, your ticket will be automatically refunded back to your credit card account. Once a refund has been processed, you will be notified via confirmation email. It usually takes around 3 business days for the funds to return to your account.
If you purchased your ticket from a retail outlet you will need to return to the outlet with your ticket to receive your refund.
If you have any further queries please don't hesitate to contact The Hi-Fi on 1300THEHIFI (843 443) during office hours 9am - 7pm EST weekdays or via email on firstname.lastname@example.org

Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson (founder of experimental metal label Southern Lord) formed Sunn O))) in 1998, continuing a long-term collaboration and are supported by a varying cast of collaborators. Best known for their synthesis of diverse genres including drone, ambient and black metal, Sunn O))) tap into complex compositional practices without ditching metal's compelling visual aesthetic and expand the genre, remapping its coordinates with the lowest frequencies imaginable.
An insistent, visceral buzz transforms sludge drifts into chiropractic chords that strike like thunder cracks. Adding to the sensory overload of the Sunn O))) experience, the duo obscures themselves in clouds of thick fog, dressing in hooded robes, periodically thrusting guitars toward the sky.
Complimenting the Sunn O))) experience are none other than thunderous instrumental outfit PELICAN. The post metal quartet from Chicago are known for their atmospheric and instrumental stylings, delving into moments of triumphant melodic rock, smokey doom, ambient soundscape, acoustic desert-folk, and minimalist electronics.
They recently released a new four song EP Ataraxia/Taraxis, representing a new chapter in the band's evolution with a re-energised focus on composition and yielding one of the most diverse efforts in the band's prolific discography.
Don't miss two of doom metal's greats touring together nationally this October.
