Susto Announces North American Tour With Esmé Patterson; Includes Toronto Date October 30

Charleston-based five-piece Susto (pronounced “soos-toh”) and Esmé Patterson have confirmed a 33-city co-headline tour with shows in major markets across the U.S. and in Toronto. The two artists will also play separate headline shows throughout the run. See the dates below for more information. The coast-to-coast tour begins in October and spans 11 weeks to close out 2017. Notable stops include The Roxy in Los Angeles, Bowery Ballroom in New York City, and The Basement East in Nashville (Susto only) and The Drake Hotel in Toronto. Tickets go on-sale Friday, August 18. Watch the band’s most recent video, “Jah Werx”, below:

Susto released their latest, critically acclaimed album & I’m Fine Today via Dine Alone Records (Canada) earlier this year. Of the record, PASTE writes “the rich narratives echo on a molecular level; Osborne’s voice bleeds sincerity alongside veteran accompaniment.” The band performed several tracks from the LP during a recent Baeble Music session. Watch here. The site calls the session “uplifting and confessional.” The band has been featured in Billboard, NPR Music, Rolling Stone and Relix, in addition to their national television debut on CBS This Morning: Saturday. This year alone, Susto has headlined more than 95 shows, in addition to support tours with The Lumineers, The Head & The Heart, and a European tour in August and September with Band of Horses. The band’s single “Jah Werx” is currently at AAA radio.

Denver based Esmé Patterson, founder and former member of Paper Bird, has been performing solo since her break with the indie-folk band in 2012. Described by the New York Times as “wiry and candid, backed by arrangements that roll along the folk-country borderline,” her first album gained attention with a feature of fellow Coloradan Nathaniel Rateliff. Two years later, Esmé collaborated with Shakey Graves on the hit song “Dearly Departed”, performing the track on The Late Show with David Letterman and Conan. The singer-songwriter’s most recent album We Were Wild earned the attention of numerous national outlets, and opened the door to a NPR Tiny Desk concert in February. Most recently, Esmé composed original music for the Netflix series Gypsy, which was released in June of this year.

Susto is comprised of Osborne (vocals, guitar), Dries Vandenberg(guitar), 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.”
