Supathrive exploded onto the Phoenix scene in 2000 and has evolved into one of the leading local bands over the past five years. An alternative-rock power trio with heavy ska-punk and reggae grooves, Supathrive's unique sound draws from a diverse collection of musical influences and life experiences. The band's songwriting, musicianship, and high-energy performances have earned critical acclaim and a loyal, growing fan base across the nation.
Supathrive's self-produced 2004 CD debut Left of Center takes the listener on a trip of vocalist/guitarist Scott Alderette's mood swings, from the pounding guitars of "Mental Anarchy" and "Anxiety" to the cool, clean chill of "Let Go" and "Supathrive." Bassist Jameson MacArthur provides the steady pulse throughout, and drummer Matt Cherrill's chops and intricate grooves keep the music fresh, tight, and alive. Supathrive's songs have been featured on local Phoenix radio stations The Edge and The Zone, and the band has opened for various national acts on tour through the Valley of the Sun, including a slot on the prestigious Vans Warped Tour.
Supathrive offers a refreshing, edgy sound in a musical era otherwise dominated by compromise. Alderette, MacArthur, and Cherrill have forged a unique identity derived from each other's individuality and musical integrity. Their songs and shows convey pure passion for the art of music, and their friendship sustains their enthusiasm and creativity. Supathrive is more than just music; it's a state of mind.
