Tuesday 10th April 2018 – Barely eighteen months into their bright burning existence, Superorganism have successfully negotiated a steep trajectory from brand new internet buzz band to much-loved, real world breakout stars, with a global fan base and acclaimed debut album to their name. The London-based, eight person collective of international musicians and pop culture junkies from Japan, Korea, Australia, New Zealand and the UK released their self-titled debut album in March via Domino; a riot of idiosyncratic, technicolor pop that is an on-the-money encapsulation of the vital sights and sounds of music in 2018. Superorganism beams with a sense of wonky, kaleidoscopic fun but is anchored in the timeless song writing of the singles such as ‘Something For Your M.I.N.D.’ and ‘Everybody Wants To Be Famous’ which got the internet and airwaves buzzing in the first place.

Today, Superorganism release a new single from the album. Accompanied by another stunning video from the band’s in house-visual alchemist Robert Strange (who has made all of Superorganism’s videos to date), ‘Night Time’ is another prime cut from an album that was self-produced, written and recorded in the band’s east London house-stroke-studio-stroke band HQ they all share together (imagine a squat version of the Brill Building, or a lo-fi, DIY take on Max Martin’s Cheiron studio),

Meanwhile, Superorganism today announce details of an autumn 2018 headline tour. Like their videos. Superorganism’s live show is a multisensory explosion of sound and imagery that’s helped garner them a reputation as one of the most exciting and innovative live acts around. Following a summer of festival appearances around the world – everywhere from the UK’s All Points East, Latitude and the BBC’s The Biggest Weekend to Japan’s Fuji Rock, Spain’s Primavera, Germany’s Melt, France’s This Is Not A Love Song and the USA’s Lollapalooza festivals – the band will play an extensive set of European headline shows throughout October and November. The run of dates will include their biggest headline show to date at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in their adopted hometown on Wednesday 24th October.
