Crunchy Frog’s sharply dressed and until now, nationally treasured band, Superheroes is out on the pulsating and vigorous label Virgin (Norway Sweden) – founded by eccentric richboy and balloon fanatic Richard Branson – in Sweden and Norway. And south of the Danish border they have been picked up by the cooler than cool indie label PIAS. So you see, they are an international treasure now…
Norway, Sweden and Benelux have gone on an extreme diet consisting of “Turn Me On” as appetizer – just to make the mouth ache for some more. As the main course they all get pampered with the steaming hot and spicy variety of songs from the album, “Superheroes”. Sweden, in addition to this, also has a side order with an assortment of mixed Superheroes hits on a special bonus cd with 10 extra tracks taken from earlier releases and b-sides. All these Superheroes treats can be digested in the company of the band when they play in Norway, Sweden and Benelux this spring:
