SUSTO is back with another video from their stripped-down live series that we’ve all come to know and love. At least I have. For this installment of the SUSTO Stories, Justin and Marshall play “Diamond’s Icaro” off & I’m Fine Today, which I just found out was written by Marshall. Marshall explains that the song is about coming to terms with the idea of dying in a way that doesn’t cause existential dread, but instead gives one a sense of peace. They recorded the video at the office headquarters of Wolfgang Zimmerman’s Rialto Row.
I’m really looking forward to hearing this one (and all the others) live with the full band next month in The Royal American parking lot, where SUSTO will make their homecoming after almost a year of non-stop touring. The show is October 21st and SUSTO will be joined by Esmé Patterson and local hip-hop artist Matt Monday. Get your tickets here. Despite the homecoming, the band isn’t ready to take a break from touring quite yet, as they have dates scheduled through the entire fall and into the winter.
