In the late 90’s and early 2000’s Superheist were a powerhouse live band who hit the charts with successful albums The Prize Recruit and Identical Remote Controlled Reactions. A regular on the festival circuit with a large loyal fan base, the band shocked fans in 2003 announcing they were splitting up – problems with certain members, infighting and the loss of their management company took it’s toll on the 5 piece.
The band returned to the fray in July, announcing incredible frontman Ezekiel Ox as the new vocalist and releasing single HANDS UP HIGH, which saw it’s premiere on Triple J lunch time and enjoyed lashings of The Racket plays and it’s video feature on both MTV and Rage.
The band insists this is not a reunion – the band are preferring to call it a new beginning and the tour is entitled the “Don’t Call this a Comeback” Australian Tour.
“Ghosts of the Social Dead” will be available in stores and online on Friday October 28th. Tickets for the “Don’t Call it a Comeback” Australian Tour are on sale at wildthingpresents .com now.
