Charleston-based SUSTO’s new album, Ever Since I Lost My Mind, is out now via Rounder Records.

Critical acclaim for Ever Since I Lost My Mind continues to pour in:

“supremely chill — in a worldly, self-questioning sort of way” –Rolling Stone Country

“a restless rock number…It’s fuzzy and fun, the kind of groovy roots-rock that’s sure to please fans of groups like Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats” –Paste

“a showcase for frontman Justin Osborne’s masterful songwriting” –Premier Guitar

“pure and authentic, creating melodically and emotionally complex music” –NO DEPRESSION

“Susto may just be that indie crossover band that the Americana scene has been waiting for…” –Glide

"dynamic, cathartic, and incredibly in-your-face; their music is leaving the kind of unforgettable mark that keeps me coming back for more" –Atwood Magazine

“upbeat, earworm-heavy, airwaves-ready” –Charleston City Paper

In support of the new album, SUSTO is embarking on a U.S. tour through April (with support from Frances Cone on all dates and joined by Illiterate Light beginning April 10,) performing in 28 cities including Los Angeles, New York City, Atlanta, Austin, Portland, Nashville, Philadelphia and Washington, DC, followed by a European tour. See below for a complete list of dates.

SUSTO has made a name for themselves through frequent touring and performances at major U.S. festivals including Hangout, Austin City Limits, Stagecoach, AmericanaFest, Pickathon and Hopscotch. The band has opened for The Lumineers, Band of Horses and The Head and The Heart, and made their television debut on “CBS This Morning: Saturday” last year.

Osborne first began writing songs as a teen in South Carolina, performing with numerous bands before forming SUSTO. During a self-imposed hiatus, he moved to Havana, Cuba and befriended local musicians who encouraged and inspired him to start writing music again. “It was a weird moment. I just had to finally quit keeping one foot out of music and dive in,” he explains. The band’s name, SUSTO, is derived from a Latin American term that can be roughly translated as “panic attack.” “That deep fright was something I was experiencing, and songwriting felt like it was helping me cure it,” adds Osborne. “I can lose my mind on stage sometimes––I will break down and cry or have to keep myself from doing it––I just feel so incredibly lucky.”
