Superheaven are back. Well I say back, with the announcement of their Sophomore LP Ours Is Chrome, they're kind of centre stage for the first time. That's because this album will be the band's first as Superheaven, previously recording under the name Daylight, until an existing band brought legal action upon them, forcing them to change.
The lead single 'I've Been Bored' was shared today, and the video shows the band members hosting an alien welcoming party, which while far from the image the music painted for me, is still pretty fun. In terms of sound, it's more of the same that won them fans on their debut Jar, fuzzy guitars and grungey production. If you liked them before, you'll more than likely enjoy this effort, but it does feel a little restrained so I expect and hope to see some more ferocity on the album
Hailing from Doylestown, Pennsylvania just like Balance And Composure & Circa Survive, production undoubtedly falls to fellow PA resident Will Yip, and while that may not be a surprise, it's definitely a good thing.
Ours Is Chrome is due out on 4th May 2015 via SideOneDummy Records.
