About collaborating with Benji Webbe, front-woman Skye 'Sever' Sweetnam said:
As a band that formed after being inspired by ‘Babylon’ by Skindred, it's absolutely surreal to have collaborated on a song with Benji Webbe.
Back in 2015, our UK tour ended in Wales. I knew we were going to be close to Benji's hometown of Newport, so I asked if he'd be down with us coming to film a music video for "Move Mountains". Not only did Benji invite us to film at Dub War's rehearsal space, but he took us out for drinks to the local pubs and we had the best night. This is how we experienced meeting one of my all time favorite vocalists – INSANE!!”
Off new album, Opus Mar, coming out March 31st, the band released single "Anti-Anthem" late last September, which is an absolute smasher:
With the sophomore album, Sumo Cyco decided to go towards the crowdfunding approach through PledgeMusic, of which they've received 249% of their established goal. Guess we can call that an absolute success!
In the meantime, check out their debut album Lost In Cyco City and who knows, you might become a fan!
