The rumors are trueâ€¦ Superdrag are heading into the studio this month to begin work on their first new recording project together since 1998â€™s Head Trip In Every Key. Fans have had a sense that something might be going on when the band posted demos on their myspace page later last year (www.myspace.com/superdragofficial), but now that John Davis has officially posted on the bands website that sessions are beginning this month, Superdrag fans can now start preparing for the new album in 2008.
Superdrag will also be playing 3 shows in April one of which will be a co-headlining bill with ex-label mates and old friends Nada Surf on April 11th at Terminal 5 in New York. Further dates in 2008 are expected including proposed dates in the Western half of the United States.Details on the April shows are as follows:04.09.08 â€¢ The 8×10 â€¢ 10 E Cross Street â€¢ Baltimore, MD 21230 â€¢ 410.625.2000 â€¢ www.the8x10.com04.11.08 â€¢ Terminal 5 â€¢ 610 W 56th Street â€¢ New York, NY 10019 â€¢ 212.260.4700 â€¢ www.terminal5nyc.com7pm Doors â€¢ 8pm Show â€¢ All Ages â€¢ $22 Advance / $25 Day of Show â€¢ Tickets available at ticketmaster.com04.12.08 â€¢ Johnny Brendaâ€™s â€¢ 1201 N Frankford Ave â€¢ Philadelphia, PA 19125 â€¢ 215.739.9684 â€¢ www.johnnybrendas.com
Though Superdrag may be best known for their 1996 major-label debut Regretfully Yours and the hit single â€œSucked Outâ€ that helped launch the band towards international success, the follow-up Head Trip In Every Key, issued in 1998, was widely regarded as the bandâ€™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 Superdragâ€™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 will continue touring through 2008 with a new album coming later in 2008.
