The new unreleased song “Move Mountains” features Benji Webbe, singer of Skindred. The band’s full length debut album “Lost in Cyco City’” produced by Matt Drake was released in 2014 on Fontana North in Canada and RSK Entertainment in Europe.
Sumo Cyco independently crowdfunded “Opus Mar”. The fan buzz as a result of Sumo Cyco’s new single “Anti-Anthem” caused Sumo Cyco’s PledgeMusic campaign to reached 249% of their PledgeMusic goal.
Front-woman Sever is the alter ego of former teen-pop sensation and Juno nominee Skye Sweetnam, who signed to Capitol Records and EMI (Sony/ATV) Publishing at the age of fourteen. Skye performed in over 25 countries and opened for Britney Spears for 50 dates on the Onyx Hotel Tour, all before her 17th birthday.
Skye co-wrote with hit makers such as Dr. Luke, Max Martin, The Matrix and Tim Armstrong (Rancid). Tim’s hit ‘Into Action’ features Sweetnam on backing vocals. After two full-length albums, Sweetnam decided to shift gears and initiated her departure from the major label. Since forming, Sumo Cyco has taken a novel approach to releasing music. They have recorded and released over a dozen digital singles to date alongside grindhouse-esque movie videos, which attracted over 2.9 million Youtube views and counting. The band takes pride in building a strong online presence by creating and marketing their own content. Sumo Cyco has toured with Mushroomhead, Butcher Babies, Alien Ant Farm, FOZZY and Nonpoint, to name a few.
