Today is the sixth day of our Dummy Days Of December. As a reminder, from now until we close shop on Friday, we’ll be highlighting a different 2015 release each day. We’ve got exclusive contests, sales, stories, and more lined up for the next two weeks — just keep your eyes peeled here and on our socials for deals and more!
We’re kicking this week off with Superheaven’s Ours Is Chrome.
Prior to the release of Ours Is Chrome, we hung with the dudes in Superheaven a couple times. We all got along, and the hangs were solid, but it wasn’t until this past February that we truly became family. The dudes were in town on tour with Turnstile, and their flights home were cancelled so they ended up crashing at the office for over a week. Honestly, by the end of that trip, we could’ve hung out for another two weeks! That’s how tight we all got during that trip.
It’s also the same time that we filmed the video for “Next To Nothing.” The idea for the video spurred from our sales/marketing dude George but the band really made it their own. This video wouldn’t have been the same without the superior acting skills and ideas of Taylor, Joe, Jake and Zack. After laughing hysterically at the finished product, we collectively realized that what started as a funny video for our YouTube had to be treated more like a proper music video. We premiered it with our friends at Noisey in April and it’s been racking up views ever since.
Looking back, we’re all really proud of that one. It kicked off a series of in-house videos that we produced, filmed, and edited ourselves (along with our fantastic videographer Clay Tatum), including Timeshares “Spend The Night,” Allison Weiss’ How To Get Signed announcement, Restorations “Tiny Prayers,” and more.
Not long after Ours Is Chrome came out in May, rave reviews started piling in, most notable of which was Rolling Stone, who declared the band one of their artists to watch that month, and NPR, who shared the gruesome video for “Gushin’ Blood” to celebrate the start of the band’s headlining tour.
What’s 2016 got in store for Superheaven? We’re hoping for much more touring! People need to see this band live. We caught what may have been their strongest performance yet at The Fest back in October, and if that set was any indicator of what’s coming next, we’re STOKED.
