A few years back I reviewed the rocking album ‘A New Hope’ from Swedish band Supralunar (read my review). Now, the band is back with a kick-ass track called ‘For The Greater Good of Rock’n’Roll’. This is a smoking hot tune from the band, and it’s taken from Supralunar’s upcoming release ‘Ghosts’.
I’m so glad to hear new music from this band, and both the tune and the video are top-notch!
More about the band and the video:
In this video the three stooges of Supralunar find themselves in the school of rock. – Now that we have graduated we’re ready to rock the world starting with Sweden Rock Festival, says lead singer and guitarist Petri Tuulik.
“For The Greater Good Of Rock’n’Roll” is the first single from the upcoming album “Ghosts”. The video is as much tongue-in-cheek as the band’s previous creations and a homage to 80s videos from bands such as Twisted Sister and Van Halen.
The video is shot in a classroom situated in Petri’s old primary school where he first started playing in bands back in the day. – Talk about throwback! The school hadn’t changed much during all these years.
The screenplay is written by Petri Tuulik and the video was directed and filmed by Andreas Rolfer Wrangö with whom the band has worked before.
The album “Ghosts” is scheduled for release this fall and is the band’s second full-length album.
Compared to the last album ”Ghosts” is a bit heavier, a bit darker and a bit more progressive at the same time keeping the melodies and playfulness that is Supralunar. The lyrics lean more towards angels, demons, and hell, rather than love.
Saturday June 10th at 11.30 am Supralunar will play Sweden Rock Festival’s 4Sound Stage.
Supralunar is a trio from Stockholm/Sweden that has existed in the current line-up since 2010. The band has been described as “The Darkness goes Beatles” or “a mixture of Foo Fighters and The Sweet”. They have released the ep “Unzip To Rock!” and the critically acclaimed full-length album “A New Hope” (Dead End Exit Records/Sound Pollution).
