Supersuckers, the self-styled ‘World’s Greatest Rock ’n’ Roll Band’, have signed to Steamhammer / SPV to release their ninth studio album, ‘Get The Hell’, a blistering return to their punk rock roots, boasting a tightly focused sonic assault of big riffs, catchy hooks and raw, balls-to-the-wall rock’n’roll. Recorded at Willie Nelson’s famed Arlyn Studio in Austin, TX and mixed by Dwarves leader Blag Dahlia and Andy Carpenter, ‘Get The Hell’, Supersuckers’ first studio album in 5 years, conjures all the attitude of a band in its prime, kicking out snarling, anthemic choruses over head-bobbing chord progressions. Opening title track ‘Get the Hell’ fires a warning shot across the bow, with singer Eddie Spaghetti offering his road weary wisdom over the menacing groove of recent addition, drummer Captain Von Streicher (of Throw Rag fame). “You wanna hear about the evil and the wicked things / I’d love to tell you, but I can’t because of what it brings”, before finishing the sentiment in true Supersuckers form, “When you’re staring down the mouth of this unruly beast / You might crap your pants or wet ‘em at the very least.”
On the remainder of ‘Get The Hell’, the Supersuckers spin tales of romantic debauchery (‘High Tonight’), biblically proportioned excess (‘Gluttonous’), hard-boiled obsession (‘Something About You’) and the trials and tribulations of being a total fuck up (‘Fuck Up’). Never one to shy away from a good (and completely unexpected) cover song, the ‘Suckers exhibit their sonic dominance tackling soft rocker’s Depeche Mode’s popular ‘Never Let Me Down Again’. Since their 1992 Sub Pop debut, the Supersuckers have toured relentlessly, sharing stages around the world with Social Distortion, Bad Religion, The Ramones, Motörhead, Flogging Molly, Butthole Surfers, Reverend Horton Heat, New York Dolls, The Dwarves, White Zombie and Nashville Pussy. They have also recorded with Steve Earle, Eddie Vedder, Kelley Deal (The Breeders) and Willie Nelson, who they also backed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Eddie Spaghetti:”After many delays and unfortunate setbacks the Supersuckers are happy to announce the arrival of their latest masterpiece, ‘Get The Hell’. This may be a bit blasphemous to say, but we think it is the bands finest work to date. Really, The Supersuckers have no business being this good after all these years! And now, in conjunction with Steamhammer Records, you will be able to hear for yourself exactly what has the band all fired up… 12 solid tracks of unrelenting Supersucker-itis, it’s as brutal and as polished as the band has ever sounded. This is the Supersuckers at their meanest, most ferocious, and still at the top of their game in the songwriting department. This record is a juggernaut, front to back, and is guaranteed to be your new favorite record of 2014. So come on and Get The Hell people!”
