Biography

Formed in 2001, Edmonton's Superseed has overcome it's share of challenges and growing pains to arrive at it's finest form yet in 2006. Engaging songs, kickass live shows, and outstanding musicianship continue to mark Superseed's territory in the post-grunge/modern-rock genre they call home. The band have two CD releases under their belts so far: 2003's "Superseed" debut, and 2005's "Writing Words EP". Both were key to introducing the band to a growing number of fans, to Canadian rock radio, and to the industry. A new release, as yet untitled, has been in the works since early 2006 when the band decided to put a pause on playing live to fully focus on the new record.

"We are concentrating on the songs first and foremost", states group leader Cory Burgett. Joining in the cause (Oct '05) is former Social Code (Universal) guitarist Dave Hesse who observed "These guys have a solid songwriting core and can play and sing...it's something that's hard to find these days." Pushing the heavier sounds in the group is twin brother Cary Burgett who joined Superseed on bass after fronting Edmonton bred metal act El Cid for years. On drums is Fletcher Nichol, whose hard driving beats are a perfect match for the over-the-top sound of the group. The resulting chemistry shows in Superseed's songwriting depth, experience, and integrity: all factors which give the band a strong edge to succeed in the modern music industry.

Previous highlights include:
- Showcased at Canadian Music Week '04 when their song "Grace Us" was a regional finalist in the National Songwriting Competition.
- Showcased at JUNOFest '04 in Edmonton.
- Received national radio airplay/features on 9 stations across Canada in 2005 for thier CD "Writing Words".
- Opening slots for Poison's Bret Michaels, Social Code, Staggered Crossing, Tal Bachman, Tin Foil Pheonix (604 Records) + others.
- Performed for 2500 people at Klondike Days 2005 in Edmonton.
- Added to "Rock for a Reason" compilation (feat. Alter Bridge, Finger 11) in 2005.
- Received many rave reviews for CD releases ranging from 4/5 star to 5/5 star ratings.
- Performed on Edmonton's "Big Breakfast" Television program 2003 and 2004.
- Performed on Calgary's "Big Breakfast" television program 2004.

Look for a new release from this up-and-coming Canadian rock act early 2007. Two new songs (still un-mastered) to be released on the new record, "These Memories" and "Can't Turn Back Time", have been including in this EPK.

Superseed writes, produces, and records all it's own material.

Lyrics

Grace Us

Written By: Cory Burgett - lyrics & music; Superseed - music

Are you running around
Or just from me?
Did I hit the ground
Or a bad dream
When we left off
That space was empty
You never said enough now

There you stand with the world
In your hands
There you stand with my world
And you...

Hold me down but
You can't save us
Show me how
But your love won't grace us
Hold me down but
You can't save us
Show me how
But your love won't grace us

Never got that last chance
You took from me
Never a good reason
To see clearly
Can't look back now
My troubles have only faded
You never said enough now

There you stand with the world
In your hands
There you stand with my world
And you...

Hold me down but
You can't save us
Show me how
But your love won't grace us
Hold me down but
You can't save us
Show me how
But your love won't grace us

Can't Turn Back Time

Written By: Cory Burgett - lyrics & music; Superseed - music

He's willing to face another day
But this pain just won't go away
Even though she's willing to work out little things
It's easier to turn his back
Can't turn back time

Why did we falter?
Why did we die?
Why was it something we couldn't make right?
Why did we falter?
Why did we die?
Can't turn back time
Can't turn back time

And she says good things don't stay
She still believes in nothing
Even though he thinks about her on lonely days
It's easier to turn his back
Can't turn back time

Why did we falter?
Why did we die?
Why was it something we couldn't make right?
Why did we falter?
Why did we die?
Can't turn back time
Can't turn back time

And I know there's something wrong
But I don't know where I belong
When the sun rose it begun

She's willing to face another day
This pain's just starting to fade

These Memories

Written By: Cory Burgett - lyrics & music; Superseed - music

Second story city night
Something's just not right
You said you were scared
Somehow this became a lie
We crossed the line
You needed to run away

Run away
Here comes the one that heals
Here comes the one that plays
Run away

These memories, taking up space
Taking up this time I spent with you
These memories, I fooled myself
Thinking that this was meant to be

Another scar to break my pride
All those times I tried for your sake
Now it's too late
In my mouth this bitter taste
I scream your name
When you say I'm not enough

Run away
Here comes the one that heals
Here comes the one that plays
Run away

These memories, taking up space
Taking up this time I spent with you
These memories, I fooled myself
Thinking that this was meant to be
