Biography

Rock and roll, America’s musical foundation was built on it and historically speaking no one does it better. From Elvis Presley to Guns N’ Roses to Nirvana, Americans are known for setting the standard in Rock music; and in this day of “nu” this and “post” that SUPERCELL emerges under the heading of just one simple label; Rock band.

A more detailed description might say SUPERCELL’s sound is mainstream, radio-oriented, Alternative-Rock rooted in “old school Pop” with a trace of current Modern Rock mixed in for good measure. Citing influences like Motley Crue, Stone Temple Pilots & Linkin Park singer Jason Wheelington, guitarists Shannon Nedved & Mark Sims, bassist Nick Holmes and drummer Moonshine collectively meld together other influences too that range from Madonna, U2 and Guns n’ Roses to Our Lady Peace, Chevelle and Hoobastank; ultimately creating a truly original sound that will leave you yearning for more. SUPERCELL’s live shows always resonate with an intensity that leaves the audience hoarse, sweaty and smiling and given that propensity for powerful live performances, combined with the mass-market appeal of their infectious musical hooks, it is no wonder SUPERCELL has shared the stage with major artists of multiple musical genres (Hoobastank, Seether, Billy Idol, Crossfade, Sum 41, Bowling for Soup, Evanescence, John Mellancamp, Sheryl Crow, Fuel, Something Corporate, Breaking Benjamin, Skindred, Three Days Grace & many others). In addition to being a part of KDGE’s 1st Annual Summer Weenie Roast in 2005, the band has also taken part in KDGE’s annual “Bands in the Sand” promotion, taking them to Jamaica, for 2 straight years. In 2004 SUPERCELL headlined the sidestage at Edgefest 13. In 2005 SUPERCELL graduated to Smirnoff Music Centre’s mainstage for a sold-out Edgefest 14.

Music reviewer Andrew Ellis, of Popmatters.com, says “SUPERCELL could justifiably claim to be one of the best unsigned rock bands in the U.S.” Factor in the band members’ light-hearted attitudes and on-air ease behind the microphone and it’s easy to see why the band fast-became regular guests on KDGE 102.1 FM’s “The Morning Edge”. Look for SUPERCELL in theaters as well, as they were handpicked by Academy Award winning film Producer Curt Johnson to be included in the feature film “West Memphis Three”, as well as the indie documentary Michael Moore Hates America (2004). Additionally, since Summer 2004, SUPERCELL has been a Budweiser True Music band; as they were been selected as one of only 2 rock bands to represent the Dallas/Ft. Worth market. Whether it’s a radio jock, an online fanzine or even an award-winning film Producer the buzz about SUPERCELL keeps getting louder and louder and many expect SUPERCELL to remain a staple of the American Rock music scene for some time to come.

SUPERCELL is currently out on the road touring in support of their 1st full length record THE NEW AMERICAN STANDARD. This breakout release was Produced by Zac Maloy (formerly of The Nixons) and is a follow up to their critically acclaimed GENERATION OF THE NUMB EP. THE NEW AMERICAN STANDARD’s 1st single “Swept Away” received Commercial Radio airplay across the U.S. (from TX to SC to NY and all points in between) and was a multi-market, undefeated, Cock-Fight Champion, as well. Currently, their follow-up single, “Satellite” is receiving airplay in markets across the country with more and more Commercial FM radio stations discovering SUPERCELL each week.

Lyrics

Swept Away

Written By: Jason Wheelington

It can be said, yes I lost my head from lack of oxygen
Dizzy on the ledge, back from green to red, and then I’m lost again

But if you tell me that it’s alright now
I’ll believe in you and get so high that

I am swept away into the blackest oceans and
I am swept away and now I drown in you again

Since we met my heart it feels like lead. How did it get to this?
So now I wait to end all that we been in and then I sink again

Pre Ch. Repeat, Ch. Repeat

Satellite

Written By: Jason Wheelington

As you fell through this lonely life
You were trying just to find a way
Out of all that hurt inside
A little shelter from your every day
You never seemed to see the light
Yeah, life was more than you could take
Now you’re just a distant satellite
Spinning out in space

Out there, somewhere,
Drifting in this atmosphere
Somewhere, out there
Watching over, watching over

My life
My satellite
You stayed so high
My satellite

And still I seem to fall apart
When I see you in my dreams
Calling from an aging scar
To a place in me that no one sees
Now I find you’re never far
And the love you left can still be seen
And no one knows you’re at the heart
O’ this pressure loss in me

Pre. Ch. Repeat, Ch. Repeat

Lights Out

Written By: Jason Wheelington

Waking up today I’ve never felt this way
But then again I say I’ve never seen this side of you
Right now’s the time to turn you on
Right now I know you need someone
Right now come on and take me on inside

Breathing in I’m breathing you
So suddenly you feel this too…lights out!

As we lay it down today it seems we’ve found our way
We hum along while I am looking back at you
Right now’s the time to turn you on
Right now I know you need someone
Right now come on and take me on inside

Breathing in I’m breathing you
So suddenly you feel this too
And I need to know you’re with me here
Watch it all just disappear

Lights out (4x)

Right now’s the time to turn you on
Right now I know you need someone
Right now come on and take me on inside, lights out!

Lights out…I know you need someone
Lights out…come on and take me on
Lights out…I know you need someone
Lights out…come on and take me on
Lights out!
