About The Toadies: The Texas band is, at its core, just a raw, commanding rock band. This was first exemplified on the bands 1994 debut Rubberneck. An intense, swirling vortex of guitar rock built around Todd Lewis’ “wrong” songs and abstract lyrics like the smash single “Possum Kingdom,” it rocketed to platinum status on the strength of that and two other singles, “Tyler”and “Away.” That success didn’t translate to label support when the Toadies submitted their second album, Feeler.

Perhaps aptly, things in general just went wrong. Meanwhile, “Possum Kingdom” never left the airwaves. The Toadies officially reconvened in 2007. Lewis, Mark Reznicek, Clark Vogeler and new bass player Doni Blair are optimistic that their new indie incarnation will succeed, thanks to the support of their devout fans and equally supportive label.

About the Supersuckers: The “Greatest Rock-n-Roll Band in the World’s” ninth studio album is a blistering return to their punk rock roots. Featuring 12 new soon-to-be Supersuckers classics, Get The Hell is a tightly focused sonic assault of big riffs, catchy hooks and raw, balls-to-the-wall rock-n-roll. The Supersuckers have toured relentlessly, sharing stages around the world with Social Distortion, Bad Religion, The Ramones, Motörhead and White Zombie. They have also recorded with Steve Earle, Eddie Vedder and Willie Nelson, who they also backed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
