Superjoint will take on part two of its Caught up in the Gears of Application U.S. live takeover later this month. The tour will make its way west from San Antonio, Texas, in mid-April through mid-May, with additional dates to be announced in the coming weeks. Support will be provided by Motor City thrashers Battlecross and noise rock eccentrics/Housecore labelmates Child Bite, also of Detroit, who both trekked out with the band during the first leg of the tour in January. See all confirmed performances below.
Superjoint recently played the For the Sick Benefit, a three-day festival-style event organized for Eyehategod frontman Mike IX Williams, who underwent a liver transplant last December.

Caught Up In The Gears Of Application is Superjoint’s first proper studio offering in more than a decade. Recorded at the famed Nodferatu’s Lair, produced by Superjoint co-founder Philip H. Anselmo (Down, Pantera, Scour, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Arson Anthem) and Stephen Berrigan (Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Eyehategod, Haarp, Classhole), and mastered by Scott Hull (Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Pig Destroyer) at Visceral Sounds, the 38-minute bruiser spews forth an unapologetic crossover of hardcore punk, metal and uncompromising, antagonistic, New Orleans-style angst.
Various order bundles, including limited edition vinyl options and authentic woodwork from its “Caught up in the Gears of Application” video are available via Housecore at THIS LOCATION. For digital orders, point your browser HERE, where you also can stream the record in full.
Superjoint was resurrected in 2015 after the original band broke up a decade earlier. At the behest of the late Corey Mitchell, co-founder of the Housecore Horror Film Festival, Superjoint founders Anselmo, Jimmy Bower (Down, Eyehategod) and Kevin Bond (Christ Inversion, Artimus Pyledriver) joined forces with longtime comrades, drummer José “Blue” Gonzalez (Warbeast, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals) and bassist Stephen Taylor (Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Woven Hand, 16 Horse Power). A new era of the band was born.
