Twenty years on from their platinum selling album Sumo
hitting number two on the ARIA Chart (and with a few ARIA Awards in the trophy cabinet), The Superjesus
are back with an anniversary edition of their celebrated 1998 debut, set for release on August 17. As well as seeing the original album reissued on vinyl, the CD edition of Sumo – 20th Anniversary
features bonus material sourced from triple j’s Live At The Wireless
archive as well as a never before heard studio recording: a Superjesus cover of Kylie Minogue’s Confide In Me
. The Superjesus
will be hitting the road with an EPIC stack of gig dates in the second half of 2018 – fans had better get ready to get Down Again
to the sounds of Adelaide’s finest ‘90s alternative rock band!
set to hit the road later this year to celebrate all things Sumo
– and the experienced rockers are more than ready to give fans what they’ve been waiting for. With a couple of massive festival slots under their belt for this year already The Superjesus
are back in a big way.
Stoked to be back in touring mode, Sarah says, “Touring is all about stamina and momentum. In the 90's we used to tour non-stop, we would play 5 to 6 nights a week for months to years at a time. This kind of momentum makes the band so incredibly tight - nothing else on earth can make a band better than by playing every night in front of a crowd. Since the 90's we have not toured like this… We want to embark on this tour with no fear like we did then!”
Bassist Stu Rudd gives fans a taste of what to expect from the massive shows, “We have not played some of the tunes we’ll be playing on this tour for years, seriously - YEARS! It’s going to be one hell of a show, playing Sumo in full, then following up with some faves as well! We are so pumped for this tour!”
