Superman is Dead

Is it a Man? Is it a Bird? No, It's Bali's Hottest Local Rock Group Preparing to Leap Onto International Recroding Charts.


(1/3/2005)

Superman is Dead On an island where local rock groups come and go with little notice and even less fanfare, 3 Balinese musicians are on the cusp-edge of becoming overnight sensations - even if it's taken 10 years to get there.

With a musical repertoire built on a common love of punk rock and rockabilly styles, Superman is Dead - also known as SID - has always had a strong focus on "going international," determined to prove that a talented local group of musicians has every right to think globally. In their decade of music making and with 4 recordings in which over 70% of their recorded songs are sung in English, SID has acquired a huge Indonesian following and an international fan base in the U.S.A., Germany, U.K., Sweden and Australia.

The Hangover Decade

Based on their strong cult following after three albums with the local underground Indie Label, the group's much-awaited latest album "The Hangover Decade" - produced with Sony Music Corporation, is likely to mark the critical next step towards international stardom for SID.

Enourmously Blessed with musical talent, the Group writes its own music and lyrics. Bobby Cool is the vocalist and lead guitarist of SID; bass lines are definitively laid down by guitarist Eka Rock; and the man with the distinctive spiked hair-do Jerinx plays drums.

With an estimated 200,000 legal copies and at least four time that number in pirated editions of their first Sony album "Kuta Rock City" in circulation – that CD qualified for double platinum status in Indonesia's seminal recording industry. Riding this wave of recognition, SID also received MTV Indonesia and AMI's "Best New Artist of the Year" awards.

The Group's latest album - "The Hangover Decade" symbolically launched throughout Indonesia via a premiere at Hard Rock Café in Bali on December 10, 2004, has been eagerly awaited by SID's die-hard fans and national music industry executives. Shortly after the Bali launch of their new album, the Band is scheduled to appear at Soundrenaline - Indonesia's biggest rock concert of the year in Jakarta. Meanwhile, discussions are underway to finalize a nation-wide concert tour.

All in all, 2005 is shaping up to be a very eventful year for these three talented Balinese rock musicians.

Superman is Dead - likely to soon become a household name and a Balinese musical export to the world.
