Aussie rockers The Superjesus have signed a deal with Australian indie label Social Family Records, reports The Music Network.
Along with the announcement comes the news that the band will release a new single, “The Setting Sun”, available digitally from the 19th of June. The single will be followed by an all new EP later in 2015, The Superjesus’ first collection of new material in 12 years.
Say the group in a statement: “The band’s amped to be back in the game with new material, it’s been a long time coming. The Social Family Records crew are sharp and creative and we are all very excited to see what possibilities unfold from here on.”
The Superjesus’ last release was their 2003 album Rock Music, which followed 2000’s Jet Age and 1998’s Sumo, all of which were released by Warner Music. The band split from the label in 2004.
The Superjesus’ current lineup – Sarah McLeod, Stuart Rudd, Tim Henwood and Paul Berryman – are out on tour now with new label mates Baby Animals for the sold-out She Who Rocks tour. The She Who Rocks project, dedicated to women who have shaped rock ‘n’ roll, released a compilation album in March. $1 from every album sold will be given to the Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation.
