Susto is the Charleston-based band fronted by Justin Osborne, who recently released their new album ‘Ever Since I Lost My Mind’.
In support of the new album, SUSTO embarked on a 28-date U.S. tour through April, performing in cities including Los Angeles, New York City, Atlanta, Austin, Portland, Nashville, Philadelphia and Washington, DC, as well as numerous shows at SxSW in Austin, Texas, where they were named one of Variety Magazine’s best acts of the music festival and showcase here.
The new album was produced by Ian Fitchuk (Kacey Musgraves, Ruston Kelly) with input from Justin Osborne’s longtime creative partner Wolfgang Zimmerman. “Ever Since I Lost My Mind is very personal,” Osborne explains of the new record. “This collection of songs came together over the course of a couple years, and they all represent different moments. It felt cathartic writing all of them, and they were also all fun in different ways.”
Ever Since I Lost My Mind follows the band’s critically acclaimed album & I’m Fine Today, with Consequence of Sound saying: “The Charleston five-piece covers vast sonic ground on their new album & I’m Fine Today, swaying between country-tinged rock (‘Cosmic Cowboy’), contemplative pop ballads (‘Mountain Top’), and any number of other genres that exist somewhere within the expansive fabric of Southern music.”
