Charleston-based SUSTO is adding new headlining tour dates in January and February in support of their new album, & I’m Fine Today, due out January 13 via Missing Piece/Caroline. Following these shows, the band will embark on a 17-city North American tour in support of The Lumineers. See below for a full list of dates.

The first track, “Waves,” from their forthcoming record, recently premiered on Baeble who proclaims, “Osborne delivers a raw energy packed with soaring guitars and husky vocals.” See the interview and listen to the track 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 Justin Osborne (vocals, guitar), Johnny Delaware (guitar, keys), 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.”

Born out of the belief that music should be fun, Blue Healer cruised into the Austin scene in 2015 with the ease of your first high school set of wheels - the wheels you got to second-base in on a neon-tinged Friday night. Mixing distorted upright bass, shimmering guitar, analog synths, and drums, the Texas native trio blends a unique mesh of indie rock and dance sounds into the familiar fabric of classic songwriting. Picture the face of pop accessibility with the teeth of basement rock n' roll - the songs sink in and don't let go.

Members David Beck, Bryan Mammel, and Dees Stribling all played and toured nationally together in previous projects, including Austin-based Sons of Fathers, where David was a primary singer and writer. Blue Healer creates a big, unforgettable live performance that you won't want to miss. Look forward to their debut album in 2016.
