GAIN MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT TO RELEASE HARDCORE SUPERSTAR'S HCSS VIA MRI IN NORTH AMERICA ON APRIL 21

GAIN Music Entertainment has announced a April 21 North American release date for Hardcore Superstar's HCSS release via MRI.  The band appeared at a sold-out show in Los Angeles' famed Whiskey A Go Go on January 24th, marking their first appearance in North America in a decade.  The upcoming European run will begin on March 11th at the Garage in London.

On the band's return, Hardcore Superstar collectively offer, "It all started when a fan gave Martin a copy of a demo we recorded back in 1994.  We all got very surprised about the great vibe and how good we sounded that early.  The tracks were literally drenched in sweat, excitement, and inspiration.  So when it was time for us to start working on songs for our new album we returned to those demos and relearned those old riffs and by that got inspired for all the new stuff that we came up with.  Basically - to reinvent ourselves we had to go back to the Summer of '94 when we first started this band and through that get in contact with the feeling and the vibe that inspired us in the first place."  They continue, "That same philosophy goes for the whole album - how we approached the recordings, artwork, choice of the right guy to mix the album and so on.  In a way we are backtracking out roots to show ourselves why we once started this band.  What we found out is that the very things that got us together in the first place are the same things that still get us going.  So this is nothing less than Hardcore Superstar coming full circle by showing our fans where we come from and what we still believe in!"  The new album was mixed by Joe Barresi.

The street metal heroes from Gothenburg, Sweden will stage a full U.S. tour later this year.  In the recent past, the band has supported AC/DC, KISS, Def Leppard, Motley Crue and Motorhead overseas.  Last year, the band's co-headline European tour with Buckcherry sold-out a majority of the dates scheduled.  Hardcore Superstar is Joakim "Jocke" Berg (vocals), Martin Sandvik (bass), Vic Zino (guitar) and Magnus "Adde" Andreasson (drums).
