Supersuckers on tour with The Toadies
The Supersuckers ninth studio album is a blistering return to their punk rock roots. Featuring 12 new soon-to-be Supersuckers classics, Get The Hell is a tightly-focused sonic assault of big riffs, catchy hooks and raw, balls-to-the-wall rock n’ roll, dripping in attitude, head-bobbing chord progressions and their trademark, tongue-in-cheek lyrics.

Get The Hell was recorded at Willie Nelson’s famed Arlyn Studio in Austin, TX and mixed by Dwarves leader Blag Dahlia and Andy Carpenter. The album conjures all the attitude of a band in it’s prime, kicking out snarling, anthemic choruses over head-bobbing chord progressions.
“Get The Hell”, the opening title track, fires a warning shot across the bow, with singer Eddie Spaghetti offering his road weary wisdom over the menacing groove of recent addition, drummer Captain Von Streicher (of Throw Rag fame). “You wanna hear about the evil and the wicked things/I’d love to tell you, but I can’t because of what it brings”, before finishing the sentiment in true Supersuckers form, “When you’re staring down the mouth of this unruly beast/You might crap your pants or wet ’em at the very least.”
On the remainder of Get The Hell, the Supersuckers spin tales of romantic debauchery (“High Tonight”), biblically proportioned excess (“Gluttonous”), hard-boiled obsession (“Something About You”) and the trials and tribulations of being a total fuck up (“Fuck Up”). Never one to shy away from a good (and completely unexpected) cover song, the ‘Suckers exhibit their sonic dominance tackling Gary Glitter’s “Rock On” and soft rocker’s Depeche Mode’s popular “Never Let Me Down Again”.
Since their 1992 Sub Pop debut, the Supersuckers have toured relentlessly, sharing stages around the world with Social Distortion, Bad Religion, The Ramones, Motörhead, Flogging Molly, Butthole Surfers, Reverend Horton Heat, New York Dolls, The Dwarves, White Zombie and Nashville Pussy. They have also recorded with Steve Earle, Eddie Vedder, Kelley Deal (The Breeders) and Willie Nelson, who they also backed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
