Swedish sleaze rockers HARDCORE SUPERSTAR will release their new album, “C’mon Take On Me”, in Europe on March 1, 2013 via Nuclear Blast Records. The follow-up to 2010’s “Split Your Lip” was produced by the bandmembers themselves and mixed by Randy Staub (METALLICA, MÖTLEY CRÜE, THE CULT).
The video for the first single from the album, “One More Minute”, will make its online debut on Thursday, January 17. A teaser for the clip can be seen below.
“One More Minute” is available for free download from the Nuclear Blast web site.
“C’mon Take On Me” will be made as a CD in slipcase, as a digital download, on black vinyl and on strictly limited pink vinyl (only available at the Nuclear Blast mailorder).
Commented HARDCORE SUPERSTAR drummer Magnus “Adde” Andreasson: “We came up with the idea [for the ‘C’mon Take On Me’ cover] during the recordings of the album. It’s just so sexy when a woman jumps into a drum kit — what could be more exciting? We discussed the concept with photographer Micke Johansson, who loved the idea. What we especially like about it is the combination of sex and bruises!”
