Susto’s “& I’m Fine” Released on Missing Piece/Caroline; Debut New Live Video of “Hard Drugs”; Embark On A North American Tour  

Charleston-based Sustos highly anticipated new album & I’m Fine Today was released January 13 via Missing Piece/Caroline. Consequence of Sound proclaim, “The Charleston five-piece covers vast sonic ground on their new album…swaying between country-tinged rock (“Cosmic Cowboy”), contemplative pop ballads (“Mountain Top”), and any number of other genres that exist somewhere within the expansive fabric of Southern music.” See the post and listen to the full album here. In addition, the band debuts their new live video of “Hard Drugs” from their performance at Charleston’s Royal American, which you can watch here.

In support of the new release, the band will headline twenty-four winter tour dates in the U.S. followed by a 17-city North American tour in support of The Lumineers. See below for a full list of dates. The five-piece band has made a name for themselves in recent years playing high profile festivals including Stagecoach, Austin City Limits and AmericanaFest along with opening slots with Shovels and Rope, Band of Horses, Iron & Wine, Shakey Graves Langhorne Slim, Futurebirds and Heartless Bastards. This past fall, Susto performed on a Facebook live-streamed session for NPR Music’s Night Owl series. You can check out the interview and performance 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 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.”

The band released their self-titled debut in April 2014, which Charleston City Paper describes as “Southern Gothic country through and through.” The following year Susto recorded 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.”
