engines!

On
the heels of the Superdrag reunion last year came performances at Bonnaroo and
Monolith that were the talk of 2008. For 2009 the band’s going more than just
one better – they’re putting out a new record. Titled Industry Giants, it will be the first studio album by the reunited
line-up of Coffey, Davis,
Fisher, and Pappas since ‘98’s Head Trip
In Every Key
. It’s due March 17 from Superdrag Sound Laboratories/Thirty
Tigers.

 

According
to the band’s handlers, “Industry Giants finds Superdrag’s music moving forward, and nullifies the unwritten law, which
dictates that all reunion albums must be bitter disappointments.  The songs say something meaningful about the
world that speaks to everyone, and at times they rock harder than Superdrag has
ever been known to rock before.”

 

Mainman
John Davis, who produced the album, said in a statement, “I can’t wait to
get the record out.  I can’t wait for
people to hear it.  I wish it could come
out tomorrow.”

Superdrag
redux:

 

 

Though Superdrag may be best known for their
1996 major-label debut Regretfully Yours and the hit single “Sucked Out” that
helped launch the band towards international success, the follow-up Head Trip
In Every Key, issued in 1998, was widely regarded as the band’s creative
peak.  Amidst label woes and line-up
changes, namely the departures of founding members Pappas and Fisher, the band
would issue their third and fourth full-lengths In The Valley Of Dying Stars
and Last Call For Vitriol to universal critical accolades, and expand their
hard-won fan base through incessant touring, with the help of bassist Sam
Powers and guitarist Mic Harrison.  Many
of Superdrag’s latter-day fans have never had an opportunity to see the
original line-up onstage together until their greatly anticipated reunion in
2007.  Superdrag continued touring
through 2008 with and now are releasing the highly anticipated Indusrty Giants
on March 17, 2009.
