The band hopes that the octave distortion and booster pedal will help users “transcend”.
Back in June, black metal icons Sunn O))) released a limited-edition guitar pedal, called Life Pedal, in collaboration with Ohio-based manufacturers EarthQuaker Devices. The run of 1,000 pedals, which sold out in mere hours, was designed to immerse users in “the same full-spectrum overdriven sonic palette” used on the band’s Life Metal record from earlier this year.
A new gold chassis version of Life Pedal was released today via online marketplace Reverb alongside a boutique clear gold vinyl repressing of the album. The LP/pedal bundles have already sold out as have Reverb’s 300 units of the pedal alone (!).
But, if you’re really fiending for one of these gems, the band will have an extra 200 units available for purchase directly at shows during their extensive upcoming international tour.
Check out some images of the golden Life Pedal, as well as the tour dates, below.
