Austin, TX noisy punks SUPER THIEF streaming new record ‘STUCK’, touring throughout the whole Summer

It takes some time to decode the themes SUPER THIEF are exploring on their new raging album ‘STUCK’, but it’s well obvious the 10 songs are as troubling as the disfigured sonic experience these guys have delivered. The Texans see beyond the sonic experience they have inherited from their forebears and theyhave managed to create a bold and assertive statement for what noisy punk/rock can do after all these year. Great job, guys!

“Stuck” by SUPER THIEF was recorded and mixed by Sean Rolie and mastered by Evan Kleinecke. The record will be supported on a lengthy Summer tour in 9 different states. See the details after the scroll.

“Caustic rant and noise therapy for the terminally distorted soul, SUPER THIEF’s debut STUCK are anthems delivered from a ledge. Needling guitar lines and pointed observations shouted into the concrete abyss, fighting against the grind that humanity calls home.

The fight against routine. Stuck. Trying to make the commute on I-35. Stuck. The piece of gum underneath the movie seat you’re sitting in? Well, that’s stuck too. The cycle. The routine.

A would-be Touch and Go/AmRep band formed years after the glory days of noise catharsis rock when Jesus Lizards, Cows, Arcwelders and Amphetamine Reptiles roamed the fruited Midwest plains, SUPER THIEF’s debut album is not only a continuation of that heritage, but the kind of natural event that used to bury cities in ash. Vesuvius riffing on Sisyphus. Stuck. Bring a geologist or at least oven mitts, STUCK should not be allowed near open flame.

Erupting at two-to-three-minute intervals, the songs are steeped in dissonance, a fusion of driving melodies and eyes-rolled-into-the-back-of-your-head slow builds. Pointed and unconventionally melodic guitars combine with high intensity drums and unrelenting bass. The short sharp jagged boil of SUPER THIEF sets the air on fire, vocals jumping from spoken introspection to incendiary verbal detonations, blasting waves of intensity but never at the cost of a pervading melody or hook.”
