A Personal Message From Superdrag

 

Let’s do this: New album en route + tour
dates (including SXSW) announced. A shameless plug for one of our favorite
bands.

With
their long-awaited new studio album Industry
Giants
en route, Knoxville’s
pop monsters Superdrag have some news they would like to share with fans. (You are a fan, right? If not, once you hear
the album, you will be. Following an unexpected reunion and touring last year, the
original members convened in studios in Nashville
and Knoxville
to record tracks. Produced by John Davis, this is the first album of new
material from the original members of Superdrag since 1998’s Head Trip In Every Key.  Fans of the band’s back catalog will almost
certainly find is was well worth waiting for.  
The songs at times bristle with an SST-era punk energy, at other times
they hearken back to the post-British Invasion and mid-60’s Folk Rock
influences of the band’s early work, at other times they’re blissed-out and
shimmering behind a wall of guitar fuzz, and at all times they sound just like
Superdrag.

We might have been friends before, but thanks to Rupert Murdoch, now we

Speaking
of music and video, we are scheduled to tape a live performance (5 crisp,
newly-minted tracks off of Industry
Giants
!) in the luxurious live room at Lake Fever Productions (www.lakefeverproductions.com) on March
8th, to be broadcast on their newly-launched (and totally bad-ass) internet
venture, www.lakefeversessions.com.  We’ve got a fever, and the prescription is…Lake Fever.

 

 

INDUSTRY GIANTS. 
MARCH 17.  LET’S DO THIS.
