The Superjesus is an ARIA award–winning rock band from Adelaide, Australia and one of our all time favourite bands.
The Superjesus has a number of multi-platinum albums already to their name, including “Sumo”, “Jetage” and “Rock Music”, along with hit singles, ‘Gravity’, ‘Secret Agent Man’, ‘Down Again’, and more.
Having maintained their much loved and recognised signature sound and with Sarah McLeod in the finest form of her long and exuberant career, the band is as relevant today as they were 20 years ago. The band was originally called Hell's Kitchen before changing their name to The Superjesus on the eve of the 1994 Big Day Out in Adelaide.
The legend goes "It was basically just a piss-take on commonly used words in the '90s. Like The Jesus and Mary Chain, "Jesus Built My Hotrod", The Jesus Lizard, Jesus Jones; there's just heaps of Jesus' out there in the music world so we thought we would have that and super was kind of like a '90s catch word."
In early 2015, The Superjesus with lead singer Sarah McLeod and longtime bassist Stuart Rudd embarked on the "She Who Rocks" National Australian Tour with Australian Rock band, the Baby Animals fronted by fellow female vocalist Suze DeMarchi. In June 2015, The Superjesus released their first new single in over a decade entitled, "The Setting Sun". In November 2015, The Superjesus released their second single entitled: "St. Peters Lane" and embarked on "The Setting Sun" National Tour which will continue in 2016.
Sarah McLeod just traveled to New York city for 3 months to write new material for her upcoming new solo album due for release mid 2016 on GRR and is already planning to write the new Superjesus album with Stuart which they both feel will be by far their best work to date.
The band are ready to take back the mantle of “Rock Gods” with the the release of the EP, tour and subsequent album, stay tuned for up to the minute details right here.
