Sumo Cyco continues their ‘Lost in Cyco City’ saga with their eleventh self-directed music video for BRAVE. The band along with a cast of other cyco characters haunt an old house in Cyco City this Halloween. With nine singles released to date, almost 2 million YouTube hits, and a Juno nominated lead singer, Toronto/Hamilton based SUMO CYCO has moved mountains as an independent band. Their debut album ‘Lost in Cyco City’ (Fontana North) was released June 10th 2014 just as they completed their third year as part of NXNE and Warped Tour festivals in Toronto. SUMO CYCO won IndieWeek Canada 2013 competing against bands from across the country and worldwide, to win a spot headlining IndieWeek Ireland in April 2014. This prompted the band to tour the UK on their first headlining tour. Featured as artist of the month on Reverbnation and on Sonicbids as artist of the week, Sumo Cyco has sold 10 thousand singles completely independently…

As we transition from our second round of beta testing and analysis, its the proper time to launch a multifaceted piece on our interactive mag, exposing many of the musical artists we have connected with and/or whom have submitted to our network. Our multi-media platform offers artists worldwide an opportunity to work, earn, and share profits through our systematic and sustainable business/revenue model. Building out our infrastructure with new technology that’s permitting us to operate in the manner we envisioned, is a dream come true. And the dream we speak of, couldn’t ignite without one submission from an artist. From one, interest grew, and we must take our time to humbly thank so many of the creators (along with their: Bandmates, Agents, Labels, Managers, PR Representatives, Publicists, and/or Other). 

Our lists boast more prospective participants than we could have ever imagined, that have submitted to our network to distribute, share, promote, and contribute their passion. It means more than words can say, and due diligence on our behalf, to support and promote their endeavors, is in motion 24/7 until the end of time. Please look for the new Shadowbox Platform on Blockchain arriving in 2019. For now, please look to Shadowbox MVMNT as we will be displaying a diverse tray filled with many of our submitted creators. I conclude by stating that the creative world is moving swiftly, you never know what you may have missed while soaking up another experience courtesy of the millions of artists making their presence daily. Therefore, while sharing the art of our contributors, content, commentary, and media listed is dated between 2014-2018. Again… may never know what you could have missed. Throwback and stay timeless…

Much Love & Respect,

John Whitman, Founder
