New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Toronto rockers Sumo Cyco, have announced a June 10 release date for their debut LP, 'Lost in Cyco City.'
Winners of the The John Lennon Songwriting Contest's Vans Warped Tour Prize, the band, fronted by Sever, the alter ego of former teen pop sensation Skye Sweetnam, will be performing on the first week of the tour (June 19-28.)

The band which combines hard rock guitar riffs with in your face blast beats and dance hall rhythms, is featured in this week's Kerrang! Magazine out of the UK.

The band's latest single "Fighter" is available now on iTunes and the music video can be seen here.

Sweetnam, a former Juno Award nominee, was signed to Capitol Records and EMI (Sony/ATV) Publishing at the age of fourteen, and performed in over 25 countries, opening for Britney Spears for 50 dates on the Onyx Hotel Tour, all before her 17th birthday.

She's also co-written with hit makers such as Dr. Luke, Max Martin, The Matrix and Tim Armstrong (Rancid) and performed backing vocals on Tim's hit 'Into Action.'

After two full-length albums, Sweetnam decided to take her career in an extreme direction and initiated her departure from the major label craving artistic control and rock n' roll.

Since forming in 2011, Sumo Cyco has taken a novel approach to releasing music. They have recorded and released 10 singles digitally to date, alongside grindhouse-esque movie videos, which have attracted over 2.2 million Youtube views and counting. The band takes pride in building a strong online presence by creating and marketing their own content.

Sumo Cyco has shared stages with Coal Chamber, Filter, Finger Eleven, Life of Agony, Hollywood Undead, Hollerado, and illScarlett, to name a few.

In the studio, Sumo Cyco has worked with the likes of Jag Tanna (I Mother Earth), Julius 'Juice' Butty (Alexisonfire) and Matt DeMatteo (Big Wreck). Sumo Cyco is currently working on new material with Brian Moncarz (Circa Survive, Moneen) and James "Lerock" Loughrey (Skindred, Joss Stone).
