Formed at the musical haven of Berklee College of Music, Super Prime consists of Austin Bond (vocals, bass), Adam Newall (vocals, guitar), and Marcus James (drums). The band fiercely stepped out into the Boston rock scene in the spring of 2011, mere moments after their inception. In under a year they recorded and released two successful EPs, "Super Prime", and "Sun's Out Gun's Out," with renowned Boston producer- Brian Charles (Bright Eyes, The Faint), and have shared the stage with Marky Ramone of The Ramones, Hawthorne Heights, Streetlight Manifesto, The Dollyrots, Cartel, Set Your Goals, Hit The Lights, Mixtapes, Fireworks, Patent Pending, Big Reel Fish and many others.
Borrowing from the very best elements of early pop punk and nineties angsty emo rock, Super Prime illustrates the epitome of this generations pop-punk genre. Quick and catchy guitar riffs woven between hard-driving drums lay the perfect foundation for the Billie Joe Armstrong-eque singing and the gang-vocal inducing lyrics. Their live show explodes out of the basement and onto the pavement, drenched in beer and humming with a sweaty intensity that leaves fans spinning yet smiling.
Their angst-ridden, yet playful debut full length, #FML was released on March 20th, 2012. In support of the album's release, the Boston-based trio kicked off a US tour with Cartel and Set Your Goals during SXSW. They will be finishing out the spring on a highly-anticipated UK tour with We Are The In Crowd, Every Avenue and The Summer Set. #FML is available for purchase on iTunes today here: http://bit.ly/GAUQ2e.
