“I think the biggest problem some bands have is not being
honest about what they’re going through.” - Skye Sweetnam
all the time, you have to be in this world of being
able to be accessible somewhat when we get back
to being able to get into our next tour cycle.
When you can get out there,
is there a certain city or ven-
ue that you go, “I just can’t
wait to get back to that
SUMO CYCO: We’ve had some pretty
amazing experiences on the road. One of them pops
into mind, when you say like a venue that you’re like
oh my god, it was so cool to go back to that place.
We were lucky enough to go all the way to New
Zealand to open up with our friends in a band called
Devilskin. They invited us out there to play, and
just being able to hear from them and that they’ve
been playing concerts for months and months now
because they’ve been clear of COVID is amazing.
We’ve been watching them on our socials and we’re
like, oh, man, we need to go back to New Zealand.
It sounds like this amazing island where nobody
has COVID and everyone can just party. Have fun.
That’s where I want to be right now, a party.
They hosted a concert just a couple of days ago.
There’s not even social distancing. There’s just no
COVID there. Yeah, so they have a full on normal
life with normal concerts. They messaged us and
invited us to tour with them over there. They
know we can’t fly over there legally right now. So
right, it’s the idea of touring in New Zealand with
Devilskin. They’re really big over there. There, they
own their scene.
