Indie rock band Super American have very big plans this fall. Not only are they going on a mostly SOLD OUT tour across North America, but they are also releasing their second full-length album, SUP. Seeing as the tour is only months away, the band is wasting no time getting out new music that fans will be dancing to and singing along with at the shows.
To celebrate the news of their upcoming album, Super American released a new single and music video that help set the tone for what is to come. A little bit of Third Eye Blind, a little bit of Blink-182, “free bird” showcases Super American’s early aughts sound, containing unapologetic choruses and genuine lyrics that define the human experience. The corresponding music video pushes this concept even further, as it is built after the mid-90s arcade game Cruis’n USA. We watch as band members Matt and Patrick race through the game, venturing into exciting places and dodging unusual obstacles that get in their way. You can check out the video below, which was directed by Benjamin Lieber and visually enhanced by Neck Deep’s Matt West.
If you are a fan of “free bird,” then you will most likely be into SUP. Dropping October 22 via Wax Bodega, SUP is Super American’s way of figuring out life and all of its complications. Basically, Matt and Patrick channel their fears and insecurities into a mix of pop punk, emo, and indie rock that challenges that tension and asks, “If life is supposed to be a miracle, why do we always feel scared and sad?” You can find the album artwork and track listing below.
