There’s a great sense of kinship and mutual respect between us and the good people at Consouling Sounds. The release we’re announcing today is a manifestation thereof.
9000 Records (by Consouling) and Hypertension Records are joining forces to release “Supertired” – the debut album by Belgium-based four piece SUPERGENIUS.
While the band name might not sound familiar, the band members and their pedigree will. They’ve been around in bands like Oathbreaker, Wiegedood, Rise and Fall and Beecher. Markedly different from the output of the aforementioned bands, SUPERGENIUS delves into the musical pool that shaped these guys’ record collections and musical outlook.
Our shared fondness of how SUPERGENIUS draws on influences from indie and punk bands spanning the last three decades of alternative music made “Supertired” the album both labels wanted to embrace. The music has a familiar ring to it, but at the same time sounds fresh and inspired.
