Super 400 Announces February Tour through Western US

Coming off multiple sold-out shows across Europe, Northeast power trio Super 400 will head west for a string of dates with Stockholm Syndrome, featuring Jerry Joseph and Widespread Panic’s Dave Schools. Kicking off February 18 & 19 at The Independent in San Francisco and concluding on February 26 at Boulder’s Fox Theatre, the two bands will play eight rock shows in nine days.

Formed in the mid-‘90s by guitarist/vocalist Kenny Hohman, drummer Joe Daley and bassist Lori Friday in Troy, NY, Super 400 has been winning fans over around the world with a chest-rattling rock & soul approach inspired by their heroes Cream, Zeppelin, Van Halen and the classic sounds of Motown, Stax and Muscle Shoals. Hailed for transcendent live shows where the band encourages taping, the trio was awarded their own official holiday on February 25, 2006 by the mayor of Troy: “Super 400 Day.”

Following the success of 2009’s critically acclaimed Sweet Fist, Super 400 is currently at work on its fifth studio album.

Stockholm Syndrome @ the Fox Theatre | 2/26/11

Bill Bass & Boulder Weekly are proud to present Stockholm Syndrome at the Fox Theatre on Saturday, February 26th.

Stockholm Syndrome is made up of an all-star cast. When Widespread Panic bass player Dave Schools and acclaimed singer/songwriter Jerry Joseph of the Jackmormons decided to collaborate, each initially thought the side project would be a cool, if temporary, change of pace. With one studio album released, a new studio album set for release in early 2011 and multiple tours behind them, Stockholm Syndrome has transcended being just a side project. Stockholm Syndrome is a band.

The band’s unusual choice for a name, Stockholm Syndrome, refers to the psychological phenomenon in which a hostage bonds with his kidnappers. It seemed an apt moniker for the pair’s somewhat convoluted relationship. Now all Schools and Joseph needed was a band.

They put together their “Dream Team” including Eric McFadden (a San Francisco-based guitarist who has worked with Keb Mo’, Les Claypool and George Clinton’s P-Funk All Stars), Danny Louis (an Upstate NY based keyboard virtuoso widely known for his role in Gov’t Mule and Cheap Trick) and drummer Wally Ingram (an L.A.-based drummer who has worked with Jackson Browne, Sheryl Crow, Tracy Chapman and David Lindley). All three musicians were on board and are now back for more live dates, an in-store recording for release and a pending studio album.

Stockholm Syndrome is ready to serve up its potent brew of provocative songs and thrilling, genre-transcending musicianship to worldwide audiences. Schools is already contemplating the future, “We’ll take it as far as it wants to go. I think that everyone is really enjoying playing together…it ceased to be a recording project and became a band.”

There aren’t many bands with the ability to hit the ground running the way Stockholm Syndrome did. And now that they’re launched, they show no sign of slowing down soon.
