Formed in 2014 by two Bens (Brown and Ward), Brown’s brother Alex and girlfriend Krista Lynch, SuperGlu are a garage pop four-piece from Manningtree, Essex.
SuperGlu headlined the BBC stages at this year’s Reading and Leeds festivals, and are preparing to jet off to Texas to play South by South West in March. They just won ‘Best Live Band’ in GigSlutz 2016 awards, beating stadium filling Goliath’s Kasabian and still really quite big venue fillers The Cribs.
“If you pay attention at all, you’ve no doubt heard of Superglu – but have you seen them live? A well-deserved win for the Manningtree band, put them on your bucket-list for 2017.”
They’ve been championed by Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing’s Huw Stephens, who broadcast their first demo on Radio One in October 2014, before the band had even played a gig. They released their debut single “Diving Bell” via Ipswich-based antigen records in April 2015, generating an instant online buzz, sufficient to secure their first festival appearance, at Latitude 2015, only nine months after the band first formed.
Six tracks of furiously exciting lo-fi pop-punk known as ”Horse” followed, galloping into the hearts of discerning pop kids everywhere. Superglu then played storming sets at Leeds and Reading Festivals last summer, with new ep ”Figs” set to follow in March 2017.
Already regularly ripping it up in Bury St Edmunds, now it’s time for Cambridge to get our fix.
Support from exciting youthful locals The Lost Volts and Matty and the Bullsharks, along with an appearance from Bury St Edmunds’ punk carnage disco warriors Janet Street Slaughter.
All in all, a night not to miss!
