SUPER WHATEVR ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ‘don’t you wanna be glad?’ Share new single “yours truly”

 Super Whatevr officially announces details for their upcoming new album ‘don’t you wanna be glad?‘, which will be released on February 7, 2020 through Hopeless Records. The band has also released a new song and music video for ” yours truly.

‘yours truly.’ is about my personal pursuit of happiness,” lead vocalist Skyler McKee said. “I am singing to myself, like hey Sky, you literally pushed out bad relationships and are slowly forgetting the past trauma, why are you still not happy? I learned that there is more to emotional growth than just cutting off toxic people, it takes healing those wounds in order to be genuinely glad.”
“I used to have to say I was happy,” admits McKee. “But now I actually am.”

It’s taken the Orange County-based songwriter a long time to get to this place. When his parents’ marriage unraveled, the cascading effects permeated virtually every piece of McKee’s psyche, resulting in one of the darkest periods of his life. At times, the personal and spiritual growth ultimately found on Super Whatevr’s sophomore LP ‘don’t you wanna be glad?’ seemed completely out of reach.

Produced by Courtney Ballard (Good Charlotte, Waterparks), the 12-song album follows the band’s 2017’s ‘Good Luck’ EP and 2018’s ‘Never Nothing‘ in both in time and theme. Composed as a linear narrative tracing McKee’s path from unrest to inner peace, ‘don’t you wanna be glad?’ calls back lyrical elements from Super Whatevr’s previous albums to create a cohesive and deeply personal record as the duo – McKee and drummer Chase Vernon – have ever made.

This album is about the pursuit of joy” McKee adds. “I had to spend time deconstructing what it is that makes me glad.

You can usually find me traveling, queuing, or at barricade for a band. I am most likely doing all three things in a day. If I'm not at a concert you can also find me digging through crates for that coveted black disc of vinyl.
