Rumours have been rife about the imminent return of the once mighty Superheist. First whispers had the band reforming for a reunion tour followed by intrigue of who is still in the band and who isn’t…

For the last 18 months guitarist and founder dw Norton has been writing what has/will become “GHOSTS OF THE SOCIAL DEAD”, the band’s 4th studio album and the 1st in over a decade.

Full production of the album begins mid August in Los Angeles at the famous NRG Studios with legendary producer Jay Baumgardner at the helm.

In the late 90’s and early 2000’s Superheist were a powerhouse live band who hit the charts with successful albums The Prize Recruit and Identical Remote Controlled Reactions. A regular on the festival circuit with a large loyal fan base, the band shocked fans in 2003 announcing they were splitting up…. problems with certain members, infighting and the loss of their management company took it’s toll on the 5 piece.

The band insists this is not a reunion. Preferring to call it a new beginning. The album titled Ghosts Of The Social Dead is said to be Superheist’s finest work to date. An exhaustive worldwide search found fellow Melbournite Ezekiel Ox, former frontman for Mammal, Full Scale, Over-Reactor and The Nerve, as well as his own solo outings.

“Ghosts of the Social Dead” will be available in stores and online on Friday October 28th. Tickets for the “Don’t Call it a Comeback” Tour are on sale at from Wednesday August 10 at 10am.
