Sumo Cyco is a four-piece female fronted hard rock band from Toronto, Ontario.

Sumo Cyco fuse hard rock guitar riffs with in your face blast beats and dance hall rhythms, topped by electric female vocals. The band's full-length debut album 'Lost in Cyco City' is produced by Matt Drake (Dodger, illScarlett) and was released in June, 2014 on Fontana North in Canada,
with publishing in the U.S. and Canada through Sony/ATV. Sumo Cyco is releasing their album in Europe May 2015 through RSK Entertainment.

Front-woman Sever is the alter ego of former teen-pop sensation Skye Sweetnam, who signed to Capitol Records and EMI (Sony/ATV) Publishing at the age of fourteen. Skye performed in over 25 countries and opened up for Britney Spears for 50 dates on the Onyx Hotel Tour, all before her 17th birthday.

Skye co-wrote with hit makers such as Dr. Luke, Max Martin, The Matrix and Tim Armstrong (Rancid). Tim's hit 'Into Action' features Sweetnam on backing vocals. After two full-length albums, Sweetnam decided to take her career in an extreme direction, craving artistic control and rock n' roll, she initiated her departure from the major label.

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. Check out the new heavy-hitting anthem "Fighter". The band takes pride in creating a strong online presence, creating their own content, and promoting and marketing it themselves.

Sumo Cyco won "Best Female-Fronted" band at Toronto Independent Music Awards 2012, won Indie Week Canada in 2013, then went on to tour the UK and Ireland in April, 2014. The band has shared stages with Finger Eleven, 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). The band is currently working on new material with Brian Moncarz (Circa Survive, Moneen) and James "Lerock" Loughrey (Skindred, Joss Stone).
