Acetate Records and the Supersuckers, are very excited about releasing “Holdin’ the Bag” to global radio exclusively via AirPlay Direct!

“This record is a true reflection of the depth of commitment and craftsmanship required to create art that will stand the test of time. This band truly does just keep getting better and better!”  -- Robert Weingartz, Chairman - AirPlay Direct
"We are really stoked to release the much-anticipated sequel to the Supersuckers ground breaking Country record, “Must’ve Been High”.  It’s all about the songs, and once again the Supersuckers prove that no matter the genre - they’ve got the goods.  This may be the best record they’ve ever made. " -- Rick Ballard, Acetate Records

The Supersuckers’ trademark balance of take-no-prisoners swagger and hardheaded introspection is reflected throughout “Holdin’ the Bag”.  The album’s eleven songs find them in typically rocking form, while tapping deeply into the band’s longstanding affinity for country music, which has grown increasingly prominent in their output since 1997’s landmark Must’ve Been High.  In recent years, the Supersuckers have been known to play relatively low-key all-country sets, sometimes under assumed names.
“Holdin’ the Bag” offers a compelling blend of brawny badassery and sensitive songcraft on such memorable originals as the high-lonesome title track, which kicks the album off on a deceptively spooky note, and the rousingly twangy anthems “High and Outside,” “Man on a Mission” and “Jibber-Jabber.”  The album closes on a thoughtful note, with an update of the Hank Williams Jr. standard “All My Rowdy Friends (Have Settled Down),” with updated lyrics that refer to such Supersuckers contemporaries as Steve Earle and Lemmy Kilminster of Motorhead.  (The album sessions also yielded a second cover tune, a spirited reading of the Billy Joe Shaver classic “Georgia on a Fast Train,” which will be included as a bonus track on Holdin the Bag’s vinyl edition.)
