Superjesus Regroup and Release a Live Album Honouring Sumo

Superjesus will regroup for shows in September and they will kick it off with the release of the Sumo 20 Double Live album.

In 2018 Superjesus toured to mark 20 years since the release of their debut album Sumo. “2018 was the year that marked the 20 year anniversary of our debut album SUMO,” says Sarah McLeod. “To celebrate, we put together a show that encompassed a jurassic back catalogue of material that rolled out a two and a half hour show. After smashing this set out night after night, it became obvious to us that we had become a pretty good band! Three quarters of the way through the tour we decided that we should document where we were at, because it was surprising even us! Also, and more importantly, the crowds were singing along with us with enthusiasm like we’d never heard before. This shit needed to be recorded, so we set it up to film and record two shows. We were playing two sets per night, set one was Sumo, set two was hits and rarities. We recorded set one at the Manning Bar in Sydney and set two at The Zoo in Brisbane and were stoked with how it came up.”

Superjesus released their first EP ‘Eight Step Rail’ in 1996. They were soon touring for the Big Day Out when Sumo hit and gave them a number two album across Australia.

In 2017, Superjesus were inducted into the South Australian Music Hall of Fame. The 2018 tour celebrated the debut album release and the 2019 dates will revisit the album.
