Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to bands that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with SuperLung.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
SUPERLUNG: SuperLung was formed in late 2018 in the Industrial City of Mankato, Minnesota. It started as a promise between Forrest Wilkes (Bass) and Jeff Zimmerman – Zimmy (Vocals) when they were in the US Navy stationed in Palau – Sardinia, Italy in the early 1990’s. They played in a band called Pushrod over there, they always said they wanted to play again together once they got out, fast forward 20 odd years, and it is finally happening. Add Bret Pedersen – Elvis (Backing Vocals, Guitars), Jeremy Buendorf (Guitars) and Ryan McKeown – MQ (Drums) you have a working class Alternative Rock Band that meshes many different influences of music and brings a high energy live show.
METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?
SUPERLUNG: Our main influences are Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and 311.
METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?
SUPERLUNG: Our latest releases are the songs “Gotta Let Go” and “Sweet Sue”. “Gotta Let Go” is a slower ballad about finally realizing that a relationship you are in is toxic and that you have to let go of it for you own health no matter how much you love the other person. “Sweet Sue” is a grinder about one of our band members experiencing dating a stripper. Readers should check it out because we write from our hearts and about personal experiences we have gone through and I think that a lot of readers can relate to it as well.
METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?
SUPERLUNG: Expect to have fun, we bring a lot of energy to our live show, mix in positivity and some humor. It makes for a fun 60 minutes!
METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?
SUPERLUNG: We hope to be playing out as much as possible, hopefully have released a few records by then, and just continue to enjoy playing with each other and doing what we love to do.
