Seattle, WA (PRWEB) September 24, 2008
Supersuckers have confirmed the long awaited, long overdue release of their brand new full-length album, "Get It Together" for November 25, 2008. This will be the tenth recording released by the band's self-owned label, Mid Fi Recordings. The November release date also coincides with the bands 20th Anniversary.
In addition to the audio CD, "Get It Together" will include a bonus DVD featuring 90 minutes of exclusive archival live footage featuring classic Supersuckers songs, as well as a few from the new album. The DVD was filmed during a Southern California performance in September 2007.
Get It Together is the first full-length recording since "Motherf*ckers Be Trippin" in 2003. Since then, Supersuckers have released various live shows known as Supersuckers Field Recordings including a DVD, singles with Zeke, The Hangmen, Throw Rag and the Burden Brothers, as well as a singles / b-side collection entitled "Devils Food" and their last studio release entitled "Paid." Coinciding with the band's 20th anniversary, a special performance on November 29, 2008 is slated at their hometown of Seattle's Showbox Theatre with Mudhoney and Zeke.
"Get It Together" was recorded at Robert Lang Studio in Seattle with Billy Joe Bowers who recently engineered the upcoming AC/DC album. Singer, Eddie Spaghetti explains, "The songs sound so good, so incredibly tight that even we are amazed by our accomplishment. Pride mixes with astonishment as we listen back to this masterpiece! "Get It Together" features 12 solid new slabs of the hard-hitting Supersuckers sound and is chock full of the kind of quality you've come to expect from the band as well as a few new looks into our collective psyche."
Eddie Spaghetti continues, "Songs like "Anything Else" and "She Is Leaving" offer up a new side of the Supersuckers while maintaining the consistency of rock-i-tude you've come to expect from the band. "I'm A F^cking Genius" and "Listen Up" sound more like the classic Supersuckers you've come to know and love throughout the years."
One reason the band sounds better than ever is the recent addition of Scott Churilla. Since the 2004 departure of the original drummer, the band has had a rotating cast of characters behind the drums. It was all very "Spinal Tap" and fun for a while but the band is happy to call them selves a first class, four-piece rock and roll band once again. Churilla spent over ten years as the drummer for The Reverend Horton Heat.
In this age of fly-by-night acts and bubblegum pop, "Get It Together" proves yet again that the Supersuckers deliver the quality goods and are in this for the long haul. The band is ALWAYS on tour, either in a headlining capacity or supporting larger acts such as Pearl Jam, Social Distortion, Bad Religion, and Motorhead among others. The Supersuckers have several career highlight performances including appearances at Farm Aid, and performing as the backing band for Willie Nelson on the Tonight Show. The band's music is routinely licensed for use in movies and television including: Baseketball, Hype, Deadliest Catch, Viva La Bam, Simple Life, Road Rules Challenge, Real World, Fox Sports, Mountain Dew and countless snowboarding and skateboarding compilations.
The Supersuckers have a devoted following and a fan club (called the P.I.T. - People of Impeccable Taste) of over 1000 members who receive exclusive CDs, DVDs and free tickets to Supersuckers shows during their yearly membership. The Supersuckers are honoring their Goldtop supporters (over a 100 fan who have paid $300 for a lifetime membership) by including their names on the "Get It Together" artwork. The Supersuckers' fans are extremely devoted and are personally invested in seeing their heroes succeed.
The dedication to making great rock-n-roll records is coupled with their tireless efforts of the Mid Fi team. This in addition to their rabid fanbase have netted impressive sales of over 100,000 units, and over 750,000 plays on their Myspace page since the labels inception in 2002.
"Get It Together," is far and away the most awesome thing we've ever recorded," declares Eddie Spaghetti.
