The Superjesus celebrate 20 years since 1998 debut

Twenty years on from their platinum selling album Sumo hitting number two on the ARIA Chart (and with a few ARIA Awards in the trophy cabinet), The Superjesus are back with an anniversary edition of their celebrated 1998 debut, set for release on August 17.
Initially known as Hell’s Kitchen, The Superjesus received national radio play with their debut 1996 EP Eight Step Rail and became a festival favourite at Big Day Out throughout the ‘90s. Inducted into the South Australian Music Hall of Fame in 2017, The Superjesus have much to celebrate – and celebrate they will with this extra-special edition of Sumo.
Included in this massive Sumo re-release is the never-before-heard version of Kylie Minogue’s Confide In Me by The Superjesus. The track holds particular pertinence for frontwoman Sarah McLeod, since it was the number one single on the ARIA Singles Chart the month in which The Superjesus first formed in 1994.
The Superjesus will be hitting the road with an epic stack of gig dates in the second half of 2018 – fans had better get ready to get Down Again to the sounds of Adelaide’s finest ‘90s alternative rock band!
Sumo – 20th Anniversary Edition CD and a limited red vinyl pressing of the original album will be released on August 17.
They’ll be stopping by Geelong’s Barwon Club on Friday October 5, Melbourne’s Max Watts on Saturday October 6 and Bendigo’s Taphouse on Wednesday October 10.
