Local pop/punk band Sundown Superhero – which consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Emile Sabga, bass guitarist and vocalist Craig Haniff and drummer Philip Norville – dropped their debut album, Wake Up The Neighbourhood, today. The six track album feautres their lead single “California Dime” and their second single “Midnight Knock.” The album was produced by local musician and producer Simon Pipe of Creek Productions and L.A. based tracking and mixing engineer Jordan Silva (who has worked with Sum 41, Weezer, Kelly Clarkson and Ariana Grande).
Speaking to Gine On?! Magazine ahead of the album’s release, Haniff said:
“It’s everything that we wanted to get off of our mind as a band. Everything Emile’s been through in life, everything Philip…[has] been through in life and everything I’ve been through in life…we’ve been working on these songs for the last seven years and it’s kind of like “Hey! Listen to us. We got something to say.”… We write songs that we [think] everybody [can] connect with…most of our songs are about heartbreak because when we wrote them that was what we were going through.”
The boys also spoke to Zeitgeist last month when they announced the album’s release.
Wake up the Neighbourhood is available now on YouTube, BandCamp and Soundcloud. Give it a listen over on the band’s website.
