The Supervillains are set to release their 7th full-length album called Volume 8 (is that a joke?), scheduled for release on April 9th via their own label Rah Rah Rah Records. The band will be stopping by Stanhope House in Stanhope, NJ on April 15th.
Orlando’s The Supervillains are gearing up for the release of their seventh full-length album Volume 8, scheduled for release on April 9th. As the band’s third release on their own Rah Rah Rah Records label (2011’s Postcards from Paradise LP and 2012’s Robots EP). this unique record finds the band handling the production work in-house, recording and producing the entire album themselves.
Engineered and mixed by the band’s bassist Dan Grundorf, the album is a collection of covers and re-mixes, with some brand new material thrown in as well. Live staples from their set-list such as “Resin” (off of 2006’s Grow Yer Own) and the Slickers classic “Johnny Too Bad” finally get the official studio treatment. Obscure covers such as the Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind?” and Toots and the Maytals’ “This Must Be True Love” are nestled in between remix’s of the bands songs. Some songs are chopped and screwed from the original masters, with a tasty list of guest vocalists (Antonee First Class from the English Beat and well-respected FLA rapper DP shine very brightly) and the horn section from Orlando-based ska afficionados Control This! provides some serious punch in such tracks as “Bottom of the World” (from Postcards from Paradise).
In support of the new album, the band has begun releasing releasing one new track off the release per week via iTunes, and has just announced a series of spring East Coast tour dates beginning early next month. Purchase the newly released singles from “Volume 8” on iTunes here!
In addition, the band has made new single “Stuck” (a remix to 2011’s “Stuck In The Middle,” featuring Antonee First Class, SBK, and Blak) available to stream at their Bandcamp page thesupervillains.bandcamp.com, and will be premiering the video for new song “Drinkin’ Last Night” in the coming weeks.
