Supe - United States
Overview“To arouse or stir up the emotions or feelings ” that’s the dictionary definition of exciting but it also describes the hard rock band Supe (pronounced “shoop”). Formed in Japan over eight years ago, Supe relocated to Los Angeles in 2003 to “stir up emotions“ in the U.S. with their energetic music and contagious live show.
One fan in Texas wrote, “These guys are one of the most dynamic, exciting and energetic bands I have seen in years! These guys put on a show in a small club with the same energy of an arena." Mike.
In 2006 Supe independently released a six-song EP Grow in the Cold, which has sold nearly 10,000 units and features the single “Shade,” which is still on radio playlists around the world.
A New Mexico music writer had this to say about Grow in the Cold, “Language can create barriers. Music can tear those barriers down. Or in the case of Supe's hard-driving, pulse-pounding rock sound, those barriers are ripped in two, dropped repeatedly on their heads and left in a thumb-sucking fetal position.” Lukas.
In the fall of 2007 Supe went back to work in the studio to create their first full length CD. Produced by Sylvia Massy Shivy (Tool, System of a Down, Powerman 5000), this 11-song disc, titled 2nd Place to None, contains the most powerful and prolific music written and performed by Supe in a style that is, well, second to none!
Released in 2008 on Buddy Records / Activate Entertainment, the world is about to get a big dose of Supe with 2nd Place To None featuring the rock single “Do I Care” and the powerful ballad “Perfect Libra”.
The heavy beats of RyoZ coupled with Toru’s bass are the driving force of Supe. But the dueling guitars of takeshi and ARI create melodies that serve as a perfect platform for Kihiro’s aggressive vocals. Supe is dynamic band of the highest octane. If adrenaline is found in music, Supe holds the copyright!
