Can we do it? Yes we can! Superhero have been living this out for a lot longer than its been Barack Obama's catch phrase!
Superhero have been there, done it and bought the T-Shirt.well, sold the T-Shirt!
It started when they made the crazy decision to give up the day jobs. The "stepping out of the boat" moment, which set the tone for things to come.
"It will never last" - "It's impossible" - "You can't do this in Europe".....well, that was 8 years, 4 albums, 1000+ gigs, 250,000 people, 19 countries and 5000 responses to the gospel later!! Don't tell these guys it can't be done....unless you want it done!
When the guys from Delirious announced that they were going to search for and sign a UK band, Superhero were not even considered by the media and the 'industry insiders' as even in the frame for consideration. Well, no one told Superhero about the rules, so they spent their last £400 making a demo of 4 new songs, sent it off and 6 months later were discussing terms with Fierce, getting the tour of the Delirious HQ and discussing details for their debut album release!
And what about America? Everyone wants to go there, everyone wants to tour there but how can we? Without a US label, without a manager, without a booking agent, with no records released there....It can't be done! Solution, get on a plane in Glasgow, get off in Memphis and see what happens! 80 gigs, 29 states visited a 6 week tour with Grammy nominated band DecembeRadio and Superhero find themselves about to release their first album into the US market.
"We believe this is what God wants us to do, and as long as we feel this way, and for as long as people continue to hear and respond to the Gospel through what we do, we will keep moving forward....oh! and we love the challenge, the way it stretches our faith and keeps us humble, because the way we do things, it can only ever be said that God did it for us".
"All the glory to him, he is our constant"
