Superdrag Reunion!

I just got this in a myspace bulletin!

Please visit http://www.superdrag.com for all the details.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

THE RUMORS CAN BE PUT TO REST…
ORIGINAL SUPERDRAG LINE-UP REUNITES FOR SELECT U.S. DATES

Knoxville, TN – Superdrag will be back on tour this Fall, with all four original members. Last seen onstage together more than 8 years ago, the original line-up of John Davis (guitar, vocals), Don Coffey Jr (drums), Brandon Fisher (guitar) and Tom Pappas (bass) have 6 performances scheduled for 2007.

Though Superdrag may be best-known for their 1996 major-label debut Regretfully Yours and the hit single “Sucked Out” that helped launch the band towards international success, the follow-up Head Trip In Every Key, issued in 1998, was widely regarded as the band’s creative peak. Amidst label woes and line-up changes, namely the departures of founding members Pappas and Fisher, the band would issue their third and fourth full-lengths In The Valley Of Dying Stars and Last Call For Vitriol to universal critical accolades, and expand their hard-won fanbase through incessant touring, with the help of bassist Sam Powers and guitarist Mic Harrison. Many of Superdrag’s latter-day fans have never had an opportunity to see the original line-up onstage together…until now!

Tickets will be on sale through (???) beginning July (??) for the following dates:

10.05.07 Nashville, TN City Hall
10.13.07 Chicago, IL Metro
10. 20.07 Knoxville, TN Barley’s Taproom
11.02.07 New York, NY The Fillmore @ Irving Plaza
11.03.07 Boston, MA Paradise Rock Club
11.08.07 Washington, D.C. 9:30 Club

Superdrag formed in 1993. The band issued 3 acclaimed 7”s and one EP, The Fabulous 8-Track Sound Of Superdrag, before the release of their first proper full-length in 1996. Changin’ Tires On The Road To Ruin, a collection of b-sides, alternate versions and rarities, was released in April 2007.
