SUMO CYCO‘s potent fusion of hard rock guitar riffs with in your face blast beats, dance hall rhythms, and punk rock attitude have garnered them unwavering attention and hordes of fans since their formation in 2011. The band will perform their unique sonic blend on the road this spring with headliners Butcher Babies and Nonpoint on the “Kings & Queens” tour, also featuring support from Cane Hill.
The tour begins on April 25 in Dallas, TX, and will visit cities all across the United States, coming to an end in Mesa, AZ on June 15. See below for all current tour dates and visit for tickets.
SUMO CYCO‘s powerhouse frontwoman Skye “Sever” Sweetnam says: “We are headed out on our longest tour of the USA to date and couldn’t be more excited! It’s the tour our fans have been relentlessly asking us to do. We are absolutely thrilled to join our friends in Butcher Babies and Nonpoint who we’ve toured with before overseas, and with Cane Hill on the bill as well, this line up is undeniable. See you there!”

SUMO CYCO‘s live performance is impossible to be ignored. With undeniable energy and attitude, they have completed six trips to Europe in three years, growing their fan base each trip. SUMO CYCO has been part of festivals such as Warped Tour (Kevin Says Stage), Sound of Music (Main Stage), WTFest (Main Stage), Planet Rockstock, Winter Rocks (Sheffield UK) Canadian Music Week, NXNE and many more. The band has shared stages with The Offspring, Coal Chamber, Our Lady Peace, Life of Agony, Hollywood Undead, The Birthday Massacre, Hollerado, and FOZZY, to name a few.
The Hamilton, Ontario four-piece is fronted by former teen sensation, Juno nominee, and Capitol Records artist Skye Sweetnam, but SUMO CYCO have proven they are nothing but uniquely authentic. Reincarnating as her alter ego, “Sever”, Sweetnam left her bubble-gum past behind and embraced her true calling – heavy rock with an electrifying twist.
To date, SUMO CYCO have released two full-length albums, Lost in Cyco City and OPUS MAR.Not only have they gained high traction by self-directing and producing grindhouse-esque movie videos (attracting over 2.6 million YouTube views and counting), they have all received awards such as “Best Female-Fronted” band at the Toronto Independent Music Awards, top finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, Indie Week Canada “Best of the Fest” (prize included a trip to play Indie Week Ireland) in 2014 as well as Best Hard/Loud Recording at the Hamilton Music Awards 2015.
