Formed in 2011, A-Sun Amissa have been exploring the edges of some kind of avant-rock ever since. The quest to keep delving deep into new voids sees the project moving in and around a diverse chasm of melancholic drone, post-rock, doom and ambient sounds.
A-Sun Amissa is led by Richard Knox and has featured an array of members and collaborators over the years including Colin H. van Eeckhout (Amenra, CHVE), Jo Quail and Aidan Baker (Nadja) amongst many others. Recorded output has been released on Richard's own Gizeh label as well as Belgium's Consouling Sounds. Most recently A-Sun Amissa released their fifth studio album ‘For Burdened and Bright Light’ in September 2019, featuring two colossal, 20 minute pieces of music that forge a pathway through the duality of light and dark, hope and despair.
