If you missed The Superjesus during their Sumo 20th anniversary tour last year, don’t fret, as the band has unveiled a huge new live album alongside a stack of Australian headline dates in support.
Dropping September 6, Sumo 20 Live is a double album that was recorded at the end of 2018 on the road and features hits, b-sides, rarities and other live cuts from the band’s debut album alongside new single The Impossible, which they recorded especially for the new release.
To celebrate, they’ll hit the road in September, kicking things off in Perth on album release day before taking in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney with Violetine in support.
“To celebrate [Sumo], we put together a show that encompassed a Jurassic back catalogue of material that rolled out a two-and-a-half-hour show,” vocalist Sarah McLeod said.
“After smashing this set out night after night, it became obvious to us that we had become a pretty good band! Three-quarters of the way through the tour we decided that we should document where we were at, because it was surprising even us.
“Also, and more importantly, the crowds were singing along with us with enthusiasm like we’d never heard before. This shit needed to be recorded, so we set it up to film and record two shows. We were playing two sets per night, set one was Sumo, set two was hits and rarities. We recorded set one at the Manning Bar in Sydney and set two at The Zoo in Brisbane and were stoked with how it came up.”
