Superdrag return with Industry Giants

Filthy & Afraid (Stealth Mix D) – Superdrag

Superdrag has announced the title of their first full studio album with the original line-up of Coffey, Davis, Fisher, and Pappas since 1998′s Head Trip In Every Key. I’ve not heard the whole album yet, but rumor has it that Industry Giants will “rock harder than Superdrag has ever been known to rock before.” So they tell me. The good-hearted John Davis says, “I can’t wait to get the record out. I can’t wait for people to hear it. I wish it could come out tomorrow.”

Produced by John Davis (whose solo work I seriously dig of late) and recorded & mixed in Nashville, Knoxville, and LA, the album is out on Superdrag Sound Laboratories / Thirty Tigers (Jessica Lea Mayfield, The Avett Brothers, Samantha Crain) on March 17.

  • Do you know if John Davis will continue doing the Christian Solo stuff? It is some of my favorite to listen to, thanks for the find.

  • I caught them at the 25th Anniversary of the local college station here in Knoxville. They were great! I love it!

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."

"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
