In celebration of the 20th anniversary of their platinum-selling album, Sumo, Aussie heavyweights The Superjesus will embark on a huge headline tour of Australia this year.
The debut LP, which peaked at #2 on the ARIA Albums chart in 1998, will also be re-released as an anniversary edition and limited red vinyl on 17 August, featuring bonus material sourced from triple j’s Live At The Wireless archive, as well as a never before heard studio cover of Kylie Minogue’s Confide In Me.
Kicking off in September, the band will take to the stage for gigs in Adelaide, Geelong, Melbourne, Bendigo, Albury, Canberra, Narrabeen, Sydney, Penrith, Newcastle, Byron Bay, Ipswich, Brisbane, Bunbury, Fremantle, Perth, Mount Evelyn, Townsville and Cairns.
"(When Sumo came out)…everything went big time," singer Sarah McLeod said.
"It was terrifying and exciting all at once. We worked so hard on that album… to be sitting here talking about it 20 years later, knowing that it was an important part of Australian music history and affected so many people along the way… it feels like an incredible achievement.
"We had no blueprint of how we wanted to sound - of course we had our influences, but it was the combination of those influences that made us become The Superjesus."
