HARDCORE SUPERSTAR are to release of their new album “HCSS” on 20th April, via GAIN Music Entertainment.
The album is produced by the band and mixed by Joe Barresi (Slipknot, Queens Of The Stone Age, Soundgarden, etc…). To reinvent themselves and find the feeling and the vibe that inspired them in the first place, Hardcore Superstar went back to their old demos form 1994. The result is a fresh and contemporary album that doesn’t forget the core roots of the band’s music.
Hardcore Superstar say “Basically – to reinvent ourselves we had to go back to the summer of -94 when we first started this band and through that get in contact with the feeling and the vibe that inspired us in the first place. That same philosophy goes for the whole album – how we approached the recordings, artwork, choice of the right guy to mix the album and so on. In a way we are backtracking our roots to show ourselves why we once started this band. What we found out is that the very things that got us together in the first place are the same things that still get us going. So this is nothing less than Hardcore Superstar coming full circle by showing our fans where we come from and what we still believe in!”
“Glue” was the first single taken from “HCSS” (released in October 2014); the band will release the second single “Touch The Sky” on 9th March.
The band will also embark on a full European/UK tour this March. The “Touch The Sky Tour” kicks off in London and will see the band performing “HCSS” prior the release.
Hardcore Superstar was formed in Gothenburg, Sweden in 1997. They released their debut “It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll” in 1998. In 2000, seven of these songs were re-released with additional repertoire globally in the LP “Bad Sneakers And A Pina Colada”. Multiple tracks rose to #1 on the charts. In 2001, “Thank You (For Letting Us Be Ourselves)” was issued, and “No Regrets” following in 2003.
