After a ten year abruption in the original band Superjoing Ritual, the band emerged like a phoenix and came stronger and better than before as Superjoint. With Philip Anselmo as the continuing front man, founder Jimmy Bower, and Kevin Bond back at it with a great idea to keep playing hardcore metal, drummer and long time comrade, Jose “Blue” Gonzales and bassist Stephen Taylor joinr the gang. The band will be releasing their new fresh material, Caught Up In The Gears of Application, on November 11th, via Housecore Records, this is what Jimmy Bower and Philip Anselmo had to weigh in on about the process and record.
“The minute we started writing, I knew this record would be brutal,” reflects Bower, “Sticking to our true hardcore roots and signature SUPERJOINT sound, we accomplished a record that needed to happen in today’s underground. It’s pissed off! After being on hiatus for eleven-plus years, the chance at a new SUPERJOINT record wasn’t something we took lightly. With newcomers Steven and Joey, we were psyched and eager to get in the Lair and start writing and after two tours with the new lineup, we were able to hit the writing hard! Didn’t take long to accomplish, and we stood and smirked at the playback of what would be the new SUPERJOINT record. With songs like ‘Receiving No Answer To The Knock’ and ‘Sociopathic Herd Delusion’ we had everything to smirk about! This record brings our viscous style of hardcore back to life. Pissed off with everything to prove, SUPERJOINT is back!”
Adds Anselmo of the offering, “The overall theme means many things, or no things, but there is an underlying message regardless, about how modern technology — computers and all that comes with them, mainly — has affected our lives. As a musician, it has affected my life both negatively (music being stolen) and positively (being in touch with fellow musicians around the world and staying visible). But when looking at the broader spectrum, computer-land has given everyday people a platform in which to bellow like carnival barkers about anything and everything, humdrum or political, whether qualified or not, some with good intentions, some with disingenuous intentions, and some with ideas that lay somewhere in the middle, creating a mishmash of results.”
The busy man Philip Anselmo has been working with the NOLA sound for a while now, bands like EYEHATEGOD,
his own SCOUR
, as well as Superjoint, and distorted waves from Wovenwar and more. This album is no doubt a force that will make your body jerk and take a second to collect your self once the groovy riffs are played. The aggression of Superjoint is there and we cannot wait until this record hits the stores so you can listen to it and rage with us.
Caught Up In The Gears Of Application will see official release via Anselmo’s own Housecore Records on November 11th, 2016. Preorders bundles are available via Housecore at THIS LOCATION. For digital preorders, point your browser HERE or HERE.
