The Feelers debut album SUPERSYSTEM can only be described as a stone cold Kiwi classic.
From the grunge-powered opener, ‘Pressure Man’, through to the melancholic closer, ‘Mary’ you’ll hear a roll call of hits that have earned themselves a place in the great Kiwi songbook.
Now, the album is being reissued. Releasing on October 30 the reissue of SUPERSYSTEM will be available on CD and Digital formats and will also come out on Double LP Vinyl.
“We’d wanted to do the reissue for a little while now,” says frontman James Reid. “As it’s now 20 years on from the original demos, it felt like it was the right time. I love the concept of SUPERSYSTEM being on vinyl as well. I’m stoked about that.”
Unleashed in August ’98, SUPERSYSTEM rushed the charts, debuting at number two before taking down the prized number one spot a week later. It stuck around in the Top 10 for 28 weeks, sold 83,000+ copies and went 5 x platinum thanks to the continued release of cracking singles and an epic live show that continually won over new fans every time the band took the stage. It’s little wonder that SUPERSYSTEM was awarded the 1999 ‘Album of the Year’ at the New Zealand Music Awards.
In honour of the reissue of this iconic classic, they’ll be hitting the road again to celebrate.
