A chapter is drawing to a close for GRAMMY-nominated pop/rock group Superchick who recently announced that the group is saying farewell. Superchick will release its final project, Recollection (Inpop Records/Capitol Christian Distribution), on Oct. 29.
The CD/DVD combines five brand-new songs with 11 of the band's hits. One of the singles, “This Is The Time,” is set to be featured in the upcoming Pure Flix film God’s Not Dead.
“The fans made us real,” Superchick’s founder and band member Max Hsu wrote on the band’s Facebook page. “We stage-dived into the dark unknown and they caught us and carried us on their shoulders, record after record. Without them, we would have been gone years ago. These final songs are our love letter to everyone who carried us. They are some of our best songs, and I know as a band we’d all be crushed if no one got to hear them.”
The past year has been one of tragedy and loss for the band, as Superchick’s drummer, Chase Lovelace, died after his battle with cancer. While many of the album’s lyrics were written in hospital waiting rooms, the songs are still a celebration of life and hope.
“When he first started chemo, Chase called me to say, ‘Don’t finish the record without me; I’m coming back in the fall,’” Hsu recalled. “Some of Chase’s rhythmic creativity lives on in these songs. These new songs are dedicated to his fighting optimism and I hope they honor his memory.”
In addition to the new songs, Recollection takes listeners on a journey from the first Superchick song ever written through to the present day. Having begun in the Chicago area, the band has been together for a decade.
