Jake Clarke of Superheaven and Wilkes-Barre’s Spur announce split LP out Feb. 3, release show Feb. 24
Doylestown grunge rockers Superheaven released two records on Side One Dummy and Run for Cover produced by the famed Will Yip; generated buzz from major music tastemakers like NPR and Rolling Stone; and amassed a sizable following, but the band formerly known as Daylight declared that they were going on “indefinite hiatus” after some U.K. and festival shows last year. Luckily, vocalist/guitarist Jake Clarke isn’t staying quiet for long.
It was announced today that he’ll be putting out a split LP with Wilkes-Barre dream punk band Spur on Friday, Feb. 3 via Disposition Collective, who have released albums on vinyl and cassette from Scranton musicians Wicca Phase Springs Eternal and University Drive.
“We’re very excited to finally announce that we’ll be releasing a split LP with Jake Clarke via Disposition Collective. This has been in the works for a very long time, and we’re so happy to have the opportunity to work with people we respect and admire so much,” Spur wrote on their Facebook page.
The split 12-inch, which can be pre-ordered here in black or a swirled design limited to 100 with a digital download included, will feature six tracks from Clarke and five from Spur. Clarke premiered one new song, “Yellow Gown,” on Clrvynt today that can be streamed below:
A few weeks later, they’ll be supporting the album with a release show at The Other Side (119 S. Main St., Wilkes-Barre) on Friday, Feb. 24 at 7 p.m. with Rich People and Beach Bod. For more information, see the Facebook event page.
