"Insides Out EP - Review"

You won’t find many three-minute, verse-chorus-verse progressions on this record. SuperVolcano has put together a hard-hitting, five-song collection produced by J. Robbins, who’s also done albums for Le Loup, Against Me!, Dismemberment Plan and countless others since the mid-1980s.

Each track tends to evolve rather than revolve back to previous themes, always pushing forward with new riffs and fresh, unexpected sections. "If a Monkey Could Talk" kicks off with a primal scream, takes it down a notch behind a vocal and then kicks into high gear with heavily distorted guitar and slick fills. "Snowthunder" puts to good use offbeat cadences and softer sections before dropping into some bass-led, heavy guitar funk. An eclectic combination of styles and sounds, Insides Out is a show of strength for SuperVolcano—a diverse and commanding effort. - Weekly Dig Boston


"Wicked Good Scene"

If you can imagine an off-kilter basis of a band like Coheed and Cambria but with a jazzy twist both melodically and rhythmically, then you might have an idea of SuperVolcano's swagger. They will swell your senses with provocative riffs, creative rhythms and rock-solid percussion while simultaneously dismantling "definite" aspects of music you would be accustomed to. - Andrew McLellan


"Rocks, Volcanoes and Screaming Boys"

Most of us are students in school, but if we become students of life and relationships as well, then maybe we can walk the streets with a greater sense of purpose. The boys of SuperVolcano, in their work, school, and music, are walking, rocking examples of that search for greater purpose.

Their stage show honors nasty rockers past and present -- playing songs too fast, jumping around a lot, and screaming. Live, loud, passionate screaming – ain’t no internet upgrade for that. - Boldfacers

Bio

Since their inception in 2007, Supervolcano has quickly become one of the driving forces behind a growing resurgence in Boston’s indie rock scene. The band incorporates sweeping melodies, harmonic tension, and off-meter time signatures while texturizing their unique soundscapes with guitar effects and breakneck rhythms. Counting Glassjaw, Fugazi, Faraquet, Incubus, and At the Drive-In/Mars Volta among their musical mentors, Supervolcano has been able to capture the essence of their icons while creating something wholly their own. Their eponymous debut LP fully demonstrates the raw energy and groovy vibes of their spellbinding live performances as well as showcases their burgeoning songwriting prowess. With pieces ranging from the anthemic to the ethereal, this profound, self-titled effort is a sonic testament to the depths of emotion, to the freedom of youth, and to true artistic expression. The album was produced and mixed by Faraquet/Medications frontman, and D.C. heavyweight, Devin Ocampo at Inner Ear Studios (Minor Threat, Fugazi, Q and not U) in Arlington, VA.

In October of 2010, SuperVolcano finished recording their new EP at Magpie Cage with producer J. Robbins (Jawbox, Dismemberment Plan, Burning Airlines). The record establishes SV's ability to evolve their style into new grounds and feels by expanding upon their soul and funk influences. Insides Out offers a more digestible sound while still holding on to their unique arrangements and forms. The band released Insides Out EP in June 2010 and continues to tour the northeast in support of it.

The band will be appearing at SXSW in Austin, TX once again in 2011, after which they will begin pre-production on a new full length album.
