Soup Kitchen are to host a first headlining show in Manchester in five years for Secretly Canadian signings SUUNS.

The group are touring Europe following the release of their third album Hold/Still.

Hold/Still is an enigmatic thing: an eerily beautiful, meticulously played suite of music that embraces opposites and makes a virtue of cognitive dissonance. It is a record that does not give up its secrets easily. A natural step on from their two previous albums, 2011’s Zeroes QC & 2013’s Images du Futur, and yet a marked departure, Hold/Still is a cerebral exploration of how to take live and analogue instruments and create a deeply textured “electronic” record. In May 2015, they decamped to Dallas, Texas to work with Grammy-winning producer John Congleton and for three intense weeks they recorded by day and stewed in their cramped apartment by night. “It felt like we were on a mission – looking for something to take us out of our element, or that might seep into our music”, say the band.
