NEWS FROM THE BOTTOM
This page will not be updated very regularly. Please check here for the latest.
LOTS OF NEWS. Well fuck me runnin'!
NEW LINEUP. Guitarist Eddie Winter and drummer Ian "the Pit Viper" Sugierski have boarded this one-way mission to the gutter! They are thirsty, horny, and downright vicious. SUPERCHRIST has never sounded heavier, and we're ready to prove it to you.
NEW SHOWS. Please check here or on Myspace for some upcoming shows this summer. Visits to Chicago, Boston, and Pennsylvania are a priority this summer, and who knows where else. We are especially looking forward to making some new friends in Lansing, Michigan.
NEW LABEL. We've signed with the new German label ROCK SAVIOUR RECORDS for the European release of Headbanger. It will be available from us directly in the US. We're hoping for a release by late May or early June. About fucking time!
We now have Back & Black CDs back in stock, with new shirts on the way as well.
NEW ALBUM. After taking engineer Matt Crooks straight to hell and back during the end of December, we can confirm that our new album is finally recorded! After some unspeakable delays, our one-time all-star lineup finally knocked it out.
We are looking toward an April release on a very reputable German label. We have an informal agreement and are waiting for our attorneys to certify the deal before it can be confirmed. Plans for the LP version include our version of "Fire Down Under" as the bonus track. JP Fournier has already completed the fantastic album artwork, and we'll reveal it shortly!
NEW PHOTOS. Check out the one-time all-star lineup on the photos page. AND NO, V. Dee does not do birthday parties. Lesbian bachelorette parties, yes, but only in certain states.
NEW INTERVIEW. Madman metal journalist extraordinaire Dave Burns recently stopped pissing on a stack of Decibel magazines long enough to interview Professor Black in depth about all of the band's activities for the last year. Check it out here.
BACK & BLACK was reissued as planned, despite appearances to the contrary. We are out of copies, and the label has not been very responsive to our requests for more.
OUR EARLY RECORDINGS will be anthologized this year via a much cooler label. This will include the Dark & Dirty album, the We Kill demo, and other assorted hellfire. Details as the release is closer.
Our first single is upon you! It's a 7" featuring the songs "Ladycutter" and "Baby Blood", which some of you have already heard live. Famine Records only made 500 of these little fuckers on red vinyl, so contact them soon if you want one. Famine is also doing a lot of trades with worldwide underground distributors, so check with your local dealer first. Naturally, we have some copies for sale too.
These songs will NOT be on the new album, but we can announce some details about it now. As you know, the title is Headbanger. The lineup will be Chris Black (bass/vocals), Ron Rokken (guitars), and V. Dee (drums.) Ron is a guitar maniac from the east coast, and V. is actually the drummer from Heavy Metal Tonight. Release date and label to be confirmed, but the studio session begins on November 4th. The songs on the 7" are a good preview of the new material, but the throbbing organ from "Ladycutter" will probably not appear again... Or will it?
Here is the tracklist for the new album:
- Black is Beautiful
- Make Them Die
- Electric Penis
- Built For Sin
- My Way is the Law
- Eat the Evidence
- Fuck Like a Priest
- Wipe You Out
- Bloody Hell
- No Color
SUPERCHRIST has parted ways with guitarist Hank Bitchlover. His replacement will be appointed soon. The only other information available is what's already been reported in the newspapers.
NEW SINGLE. We recently finished recording the music for our new single. The A-side is "Ladycutter" with "Baby Blood" on the B-side. This is the first-ever piece of SUPERCHRIST vinyl, and it's coming your way thanks to the jerks at Famine Records soon.
LOSER RETURNS TO TOWN. We had a lot of fun on our trip east and back, playing with all kinds of different bands. Lots of 'em were good, too! Hope to see all of you again next time. Some pictures from the Boston gig are online at Return to the Pit. (Thanks again Aaron. Check out his pics of Sabbat too. And the hundreds of other bands!)
LAST CARESS & OVERKILL. We played a Halloween gig at The Note (Chicago) with our fellow soldiers of misfortune in AUDIO VIOLENCE. They played as their former selves, LAST CARESS, and we cranked out some Motorhead, much to everyone's abundant surprise. Last Caress played almost all Misfits songs (except for two freebies at the end), and we played about 14 songs, including the whole Overkill album. A good time was had by all.
LOSER LEAVES TOWN. We're looking forward to playing for a lot of new derelicts on the upcoming Loser Leaves Town Tour. Check out the dates to the left. Filling in for Whorepuncher on this trip will be drum assassin Dan St. Dan. A few dates are still being confirmed, so check back for last-minute additions.
LIVE ON WUNH. As part of the upcoming road trip, New England headbangers will have the chance to hear SUPERCHRIST live on the esteemed Return to the Pit program on WUNH. We'll be playing a special set on Monday, September 19. Check out Return to the Pit's page for details.
NEW PHOTOS. There are a few new photos up, fresh from a studio that specializes in fashion and fetish photography. Ours didn't end up very fashionable, and as far as fetish goes... are you into body hair? Thanks to Caesar Cole for a great job with the shoot and post.
EAST OF HELL. In September, we'll be heading east again to join Japan's mighty and legendary SABBAT for shows in New York and Boston. Venues are still being confirmed, and we will also be playing our own shows along the way, so check the site often for updates. It goes without saying that we're fucking honored to share the stage with SABBAT, who formed in 1984 and are just now coming to the USA. Their tour is being coordinated jointly by RIP Records and Nuclear War Now! Productions.
THE NOTE KICKED ASS. Thanks to everyone who made the Premature Emissions gig at The Note (June 3rd) such a success. That especially includes the other bands, who were all unique and highly enjoyable: Lair of the Minotaur, Plague Bringer, and Couldron. It was a memorable night that featured everything from conga drums to a drum machine, and Chris Black biffing the words to "Stay Clean" (can you imagine?). We will be back at The Note with a VERY good lineup of bands in August. Announcement pending a final confirmation.
SUPERCHRIST will also be beginning the recordings of album number five (!) on June 29th. The album will be preceded by a limited 7" single w/ poster via Famine Records. Yes, the rest of 2005 will be very busy for us, but the truth is that we're just getting started.
