Superjoint

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. Check out some live footage of the band at THIS LOCATION, where you also can view the band’s recently issued video for “Caught up in the Gears of Application.” (more…)

It’s unfair to hold any band to that standard.

Now, on to our regularly scheduled review. (more…)
