Hardcore Superstar – ‘HCSS’ – New album out today

Hardcore Superstar – ‘HCSS’ – New album out today

Gold and platinum selling Hardcore Superstar have already had several number one hits and undertaken eight world tours. Now they release a new studio album ‘HCSS’.

It all started when a fan gave Martin a copy of a demo they recorded back in -94. The tracks were literally drenched in sweat, excitement and inspiration. So when it was time for them to start working on songs for the new album, they returned to those demos and relearned those old riffs and by that got inspired for all the new stuff that they came up with. So this is nothing less than Hardcore Superstar coming full circle by showing their fans where they come from and what they still believe in!

Two singles have been released so far, Glue and Touch The Sky feat. Etzia, Gothenburg’s dance-hall queen. The album is produced by the band and mixed by Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stoneage, Fu Manchu).

Hardcore Superstar just finished an European tour where they have been playing songs from the new album at selected venues. The band will continue touring, playing festivals throughout the summer and taking the new album to the masses kicking off at this years Sweden Rock Festival, amongst others.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
