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.”

These Wild Plains
It was only a year after the band played their first live show to a sold out Great Scott in Allston, MA, that Esquire Magazine featured them in their "15 Bands to Watch in 2014" feature. They've been busy since on the live front as go-to support in Boston for national touring bands like Deer Tick, Futurebirds and The Sadies. The boys capped off 2015 with a Boston Music Award nomination, opening for Evan Dando for the BMA Hall of Fame. They've earned some fantastic looks from festivals and showcses around the country: Mile of Music (Appleton, WI), SXSW (Austin, TX), The Outlaw Roadshow in New York and just announced: Stagecoach (Indio, CA) and Floydfest 2016 (Floyd, VA).

What they're saying:

"If you closed your eyes and listened to These Wild Plains you would never, in a million years, expect this sound to come from a Boston band. And that's when you realize the songs, the music and the feeling are a gift - and you never, ever know when life will surprise you. This is a group with boundless country rock charisma."

"The more I hear this band play, the more I slip away into another geography, These Wild Plains are making scene-setting music."

- Ryan Spaulding of Ryan's Smashing Life / Outlaw Roadshow


"These Wild Plains hail from Boston, not typically a hotbed of Americana-flavored roots rock. But the quintet will be representing the state of Massachusetts at Stagecoach this year, not Coachella, though they were equally at home playing CMJ."

-Paste Magazine


"70's Nashville harmonies, extra textures (lap steel, harp, shakers) and a nice knack for detouring into heavy and/or modern rock."

-Jed Gottlieb of the Boston Herald
