Oakland, CA trio Super Unison will release their debut full-length, ‘Auto’, on October 14th through Deathwish. These twelve new tracks were recorded last February with Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Loma Pieta, Frameworks) in Palo Alto, CA, and like their self-titled EP, Super Unison’s new songs are concise and intense, and generally stick between the 2-3 minute mark. Their songwriting has matured quite a bit, with a lot more “…melody, texture and structure to the songs, but still taking the same aggressive fast paced approach overall,” commented guitarist Kevin DeFranco.
The band, which features Meghan O’Neil Pennie (formerly of PUNCH) on bass and vocals, Justin Renninger on drums, and Kevin DeFranco on guitar, formed in 2014 and released their self-titled EP on vinyl and cassette formats in May of last year. The EP was incredibly well-received and praised by publications far and wide, and the band toured the western portion of the USA following the EP’s release, which included shows with Shook Ones, Self Defense Family, Coliseum and more. As veterans of the Bay Area scene and beyond, Super Unison have become known for their incendiary live show in their relatively short time as a band thus far.
